    Potential allies against NPS policy?

    Group Urges Park Service to Keep Doors Open for Recreation Washington - Americans for Responsible Recreational Access is urging the National Park Service not to exclude the millions of Americans who wish to pursue recreation activities in the national parks. ARRA was responding to proposed Park Service management policy changes that became public recently. "Rather than welcoming outdoor enthusiasts and striking the proper balance of conservation and recreation, the proposed policies have the potential of shutting out many Americans from the parks they love," said ARRA Executive Director Larry E. Smith. Smith said the number of visitors to the National Parks has dropped in recent years, in part because of a growing sense that recreation is not welcome. "Just when the Park Service should be working to reverse this feeling of exclusion, it seems intent on putting up more barriers," he added. "The Park Service should come to its senses before these draft policies become a permanent blight on the regulatory landscape," Mr. Smith said. "Let us hope the agency can ultimately see that responsible outdoor recreation and the parks can live in harmony." Americans for Responsible Recreational Access is based in Washington, D.C. It represents the millions of Americans who enjoy the great outdoors and who believe public lands and waterways should remain open for recreational pursuits.

    the truth about Jimmy Halliday

    I take it that English is not your primary language? Through your redundancy, you actually defined polyglot. However, I am curious to read your definition of idiom. The context is so garbled, your meaning is unclear. mike Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills--You know, like nunchuk skills, bow-hunting skills, computer-hacking skills.

    Yet another ill-conceived, hastily planned, totally off-the-hook Team Tigger production. I hope you've shed all your tears, 'cause this weekend, it's all about throwin down Waldo-style. Much like after the service in NoVa last Saturday, we'll be gathering at Will's in Fredericksburg. This Saturday, however, we're planning a more festive event to celebrate Waldo--the man, the myth, the legend--and party till we fall down or do something blatantly stupid. We'll be kicking it off at around 6 p.m. Last week, Will finally passed out at 5:30 a.m., so that should give you an idea of the party window. There's plenty of room in back yard to pitch tents if you want, but it's supposed to be pretty chilly. There should be plenty of room in the house to crash as well, but bring a sleeping bag and a pillow. The only things you MUST bring are yourself and the desire (dare I say "the will") to get good and Waldo drunk. If you would like to support the cause, however, here's a list of things you might want to bring: Liquor(!!!!) -- Will's bar took a big hit last weekend, so we can certainly use more vodka, rum, tequila, bourbon, whiskey and the like. I am sure you know, but Bloody Mary's are a must for any Post-Team Tigger Event. Beer -- Will's bar has a keg on tap, but variety is the spice of life (and a tiggeriffic hangover's favorite accomplice). Bring yer brews, ya boozin foos. Food -- You stab it, we grill it. The stocks of burgers and hotdogs are perilously low, so bring whatever dishes or snacks you'd like to enjoy (possibly a second time later. Also, feel free to bring your collection of entertaining Wally videos or paraphernalia. Shoot me an email to let me know you're coming or to get directions to the house. mike Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills--You know, like nunchuk skills, bow-hunting skills, computer-hacking skills.

    I haven't heard anything new, but I wanted to post some pix of El Tiggeriffico. These were from Floatilla IV in September. Unfortunately, nobody got any photos of Waldo's canoe doing the only Class 2 on the river, which just so happens to be where everybody gathers, especially old spectators. Well, Waldo's boat came through in true Team Tigger form--overloaded with coolers of jiggyjuice and people, all naked. At the very edge of the rapids, Waldo stands up in the canoe, raising the paddle high above is head, shouting "tigger"-somethingorother, which only partly made it out because the boat , try as it might, could only hold out for so long without capsizing. The cheers from the "audience" made up for whatever he was trying to say. Enjoy! mike Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills--You know, like nunchuk skills, bow-hunting skills, computer-hacking skills.

    I regret to inform his great many friends out there that Waldo "El Tiggeriffico" Morales has passed away. He was found at his Richmond, VA, apartment by his coworkers yesterday afternoon. That's the limit of the details I have at the moment. Waldo was a proud member of the Couch Freaks, and a former member of the board at Skydive Orange in Virginia. A helicopter flight paramedic for LifeEvac and an EMT, he was a member of the Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps. He worked in Guyanna last fall, and most recently, he returned from serving in the New Orleans area immediately following Katrina. It goes without saying, Wally touched a great many people's lives all over the world, but hopefully this word reaches his friends in the skydiving and BASE communities. His friends are planning a short memorial service for Waldo at Skydive Orange after sunset on Saturday. A party in Waldo's memory will be held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 26) at a location to be announced. Fly free, brother, Mike Team Tigger mike Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills--You know, like nunchuk skills, bow-hunting skills, computer-hacking skills.
