In Topic: Too hot

17 June 2017 - 12:53 PM

Vegas is about like Tucson right now but Phoenix is the worst - couple of 120's forecast for next week.   Glad I'm a night owl - the temp plummets to 90 after midnight.


You just go with it - sandals, shorts and tank tops.   Born and raised in Minnesota, I know that extreme cold hurts, dry heat is just uncomfortable.

'There has been declining participation and interest by most of the members of this site.'   - Henry


I think this speaks to the larger issue of how shallow, stale, and boring the Forum has become.   True, old age and arthritis take a toll, and people come and go, but many of the titans who contributed so heavily are mute or moved on ... this has been the subject of several private conversations.   Is the renaissance waning or just in a lull?   Are slingshots themselves to blame by their inherent  simplicity?   Many burn out because they're emotionally over invested.   All of this and more.


(Que up Merle Haggard - 'Are the Good Times Really Over')    I miss the days of Wingshooter, MJ, Metrograde, Can Opener, Toolman Tim, Lee Silva, Smiling Fury, etc.   Currently Treefork, Bruce and a couple others keep positive vibes alive, but overall, the passion has diminished greatly in scope and intensity but mega marketing is strong.  Nothing lasts forever and life goes on ...
