  • Almost everybody in that picture is a decrepit baby-boomer (which is exactly what I am, so I can say that). I’m looking forward to getting my Socialist Insecurity in about a year, so that I can move up to Humboldt County and do stuff like what these people are doing. I’ll be another LA-er, which I know is problematic with a lot of the locals. But I want to be a vital member of the community up there, and do stuff like take care of trails. And, I promise, I won’t even patronize Mac Donald’s or Taco Bell when I get up there. I don’t, anyway.
