    Mine also says that: No mimes in the backcountry.

    Either somebody got bored and added the coloring and watermark or somebody got tired of adding the coloring and watermark in 92/93?

    I know that top shack life is a scintillating one. They at least used to give you a sniff test out trashcan.

    These days you only need a pair of Dynafits and an REI VISA card and you’re a skimo guide

    I'll bitch here in an effort to keep this coming winter's thread positive, as it should be. But fuck WSDOT and the NPS. The population and tax base of this state have increased drastically, while pass-level snowfall has flagged due to climate change, but those lazy, worthless, cocksucking, mouth breathing assholes can't be bothered to keep a couple of passes open year-round in 2019 that they did 50 years ago?

    That's your classic western Washington lip-service liberalism right there: "Ooh, the homelessness is tragic, state agencies are critically understaffed and underpaid, and our infrastructure is inadequate to deal with half the number of people who currently live here. But you want to raise my taxes? Fuck you, how dare you, I hardly pay a cent, but I still pay too much."

    "I'm so green, I buy carbon offsets and have solar panels on my roof!" As they spend 3 hours idling in soul crushing traffic to get from Bellevue to Redmond in a Land Cruiser that only see double-digit MPG's on the annual road trip. The hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance that are pervasive in this area are truly next level.

    You have a point. Perhaps x-post in Tahoe thread to help migration

    15 years ago everyone who drove across the passes and to the parks in the winter could drive in the snow.

    Look up the amount of time 90 is closed due to accidents now vs 10 and 20 years ago. Used to only really close for avalanche work, now it’s morons from California, the South East and other country’s who can’t drive.

    There’s morons from snow states that can’t drive either and factor in the number of people that have moved here that are over loading the roads

    It’s also worth noting the increased logistical requirements of western WA have increased the number of trucks going over both passes. The growth in the trucking industry has also given us less experienced drivers.

    They’re plenty to bitch about but you seem to have yer panties perennially in a twist.

    Not sure why you’re trying to make the general trendline for decreasing common sense and increasing driver obliviousness into a polyass argument. Fucking move to MAGAville already

    Read "Scale" by Geoffrey West, there's lots of interesting theories and data about the effects of growth of organisms.
    One thing that stuck out for me is that as cities grow, they become more expensive places in which to live. So all the stories about business being good for a city isn't universally true. i.e. Amazon has made the Puget Sound a more expensive place to live, which is not necessarily a good definition of "better".
