Depends on what you wave at them doesn't it?

DeanT - Posted - 01/27/2014:  17:17:30


How would they keep everyone in Texas?

OM45GE - Posted - 01/28/2014:  04:29:59


Good question. 

dat - Posted - 01/28/2014:  06:17:45


once you get here, you don't want to leave















OM45GE - Posted - 01/28/2014:  06:21:44


I have to say, I love the hill country and Big Bend and San Antonio is a great city and there's so much of the state I haven't seen. I'll definitely visit again. However, I love skiing and ocean sailing so I will always end up in New England. 

dat - Posted - 01/28/2014:  09:02:17


I would like to see up there in the fall with the colors changing, but I'ld have to leave by the time I got snowed in

DeanT - Posted - 01/28/2014:  10:38:50


My Texas experience was beautiful SanAntonio… for Air Force basic training...

dat - Posted - 01/28/2014:  10:55:52


here is scenic Kansas





notice I found a picture with a little roll on the hill, it was hard to find one that wasn't just flat approve

They may be the highest point in the state. 

dat - Posted - 01/28/2014:  11:45:21


actually this is,  Mt Sunflower

Dat - - You can go to southern Indiana and see the same (when it comes to Fall colors).  Much closer to you.  

Here's a picture of Brown County 7 miles away from Bean Blossom.

yeah, Arkansas too, a lot closer, but you have to time it just right,  you can go just one week from green to leaves on the ground



Ozarks fall foliage

sure don't want to get to running down it to fast, might not be able to stop

OM45GE - Posted - 01/28/2014:  15:21:43


Where are the ski lifts?

dat - Posted - 01/28/2014:  15:28:55


I'm not sure how you could translate ski lift to a native from Kansas, probably have to go through several translators to get the right understanding, nothing against Kansas folks, they just don't have anything close

OM45GE - Posted - 01/28/2014:  16:03:09


When I was driving tractor trailer, before trucks had cruise control, I had a "Kansas" stick I would wedge between the throttle and the dash so I could give my leg a rest crossing the state. It worked in Nebraska too. 

DeanT - Posted - 01/28/2014:  16:18:52


The highest point in Kansas is a highway overpass...

OM45GE - Posted - 01/28/2014:  16:20:43


How about some of the windmills?

DeanT - Posted - 01/28/2014:  23:29:21


We do have some monster wind farms, those things are HUGE

dat - Posted - 01/29/2014:  06:03:38


some of the blades come through here on trucks,  they are huge

OM45GE - Posted - 01/29/2014:  07:31:41


We went by a rest area on our way to Bonneville that had a blade on display. It was amazing how big it was up close.

dat - Posted - 01/29/2014:  08:16:32


and how little wind it takes to turn something of that size

DeanT - Posted - 01/29/2014:  09:24:31


The last time I drove by our nearest wind farm, there were more of them than I could count while driving. Kansas is a good state for them

dat - Posted - 01/29/2014:  10:08:56


they built some power plants around here that burn wood chips to generate electricity, they ended up only running for a couple of months and shut down 'cause they cost more to run than they can sell the power for. 

OM45GE - Posted - 01/29/2014:  11:42:55


We've got some wood chip (or "biomass") plants around here because there's so much logging for the paper and lumber industries, but they were calling them the wave of the future and that didn't happen.

dat - Posted - 01/29/2014:  12:16:52


same here, a lot of logging, sawmills, OSB and chipboard plants.  the chips are pretty much all sold anyway,   the biomass plants expected the price to stay the same but the other buyers antyupped and paid more to still get what they needed.   ended up costing 1.75 to produce a dollars worth of electricity

OM45GE - Posted - 01/29/2014:  13:16:52


Someone told me the manufactured wood beam industry is buying up a lot of the chips. Don't know if it's true or not.

DeanT - Posted - 01/29/2014:  13:41:07


They need to figure out how to burn old computers and electronics for fuel

OM45GE - Posted - 01/29/2014:  15:01:16


I just read an interesting book called Junkyard Planet. It's all about the recycling/scrap business world wide.

DeanT - Posted - 01/29/2014:  16:51:21


Any way of recycling congress members?

OM45GE - Posted - 01/29/2014:  17:46:15


They're considered hazardous waste. 

DeanT - Posted - 01/29/2014:  23:22:05


how long is their half-life

OM45GE - Posted - 01/30/2014:  05:36:22


About two times too long.

DeanT - Posted - 01/30/2014:  05:40:28


And yet decay starts immediately

OM45GE - Posted - 01/30/2014:  05:45:00


That was a good one. Pretty amazing isn't it? Maybe it's something in the water in DC that rots the brain.

dat - Posted - 01/30/2014:  07:43:48


I've always said that politics will make the most honest man crooked

OM45GE - Posted - 01/30/2014:  08:49:16


I seriously think it's something about the power and the prestige they think they have.

dat - Posted - 01/30/2014:  08:50:06


Or the money and benifits they get

OM45GE - Posted - 01/30/2014:  08:54:32


They sure don't want to leave once they're in do they.



 

dat - Posted - 01/30/2014:  11:56:30


I guess it would be talking politics ifin I said they should limit their terms

OM45GE - Posted - 01/30/2014:  12:03:40


Probably. Do you think anyone will notice?

dat - Posted - 01/30/2014:  12:26:11


probably not.   I've had my hand slapped a few times on here, but Jessie was a mod then, and I did say something that shouldn't have been said

DeanT - Posted - 01/30/2014:  14:31:19


The mods never check this thread, so we can talk all the politics we want. Like How Hillary will be our next president, and befriend the pope and together will push for global gun control.

OM45GE - Posted - 01/30/2014:  14:43:33


I probably don't need the mods to stop me. The topic gets me so upset I just avoid it.

DeanT - Posted - 01/30/2014:  17:42:19


We could always talk about the Super Bowl… oops… we are not allowed to used that term...

OM45GE - Posted - 01/31/2014:  02:28:30


LOL



Can I interest you in some tickets at the 50 yard line? Honest, they're real!

dat - Posted - 01/31/2014:  05:59:07


more comfortable to watch from my living room

DeanT - Posted - 01/31/2014:  06:04:15


I wouldn't go if they were real, and the trip was all expenses paid. I hate crowds.

OM45GE - Posted - 01/31/2014:  06:05:55


You said it. I have vendors who offer me Patriots tickets from time to time. It's nice of them but I don't want to sit in traffic for two hours, sit on hard seats, stand in line to pee, pay $6.50 for cheap beer in a plastic cup & even more from crappy food and then spend two hours in traffic again.
