It's a sad day for social media when RR has nothing to share. I shall now begin drinking heavily to dull the pain.

When I grow up, I'm spending the end of September to the end of April in the Gunks, then I'm going where it'll be winter again (Argentina? Chili?) so I don't have to suffer through 100 degree days ever...

(RR - maybe this thread will hit 100 views?)

Still not as many as the original MohonkPreserveNeighborsAssociation thread located on page 37 in the General Climbing section. Almost 50,000 views and the only thread on Gunks.com to ever be locked!

I'd think a thread gets a trophy of sorts if there's an animated flame GIF to the right of the name in the list of threads in a forum, http://gunks.com/ubbthreads7/ubbthreads.php/forums/6/1/Almost_Anything_Goes for instance. Mouseover the flame and read that the flame is ignited upon 150 views or 25 replies.

One would think that for threads with a huge number views like Guess the Route or say........... the original MohonkPreserveNeighborsAssociation thread located on page 37 of the general climbing section, there would be a special icon.

There are other places, many in the USA, where 100 degrees is never reached. But can you ply your trade there?

My daughter went to Iceland for 2 months to work on a sheep farm. Where did she get so smart?

Breaking News!

There is a police car pulled over at the intersection of Front and Main.


I think there was a fender bender.

Wait! WAIT!

Some people are pointing skyward!

Others are on their cel phones...

A bystander reports there are some wires showing...

The police man has blocked traffic from turning onto Front Street with a Caution tape.
