Re: Government shutdown looming, possibly Friday night

Shut it down, fine with me. Might even see some improvements as a result. Besides, the government never actually shuts down.... Smile...

Two weeks ago I took my Jeep up to the Novak / Wicht camp, no problem. No need for4 wheel, but high clearance strongly recommended..
I long for the good 'ol days when I could drive all the way up to PC.. A shame the road was closed.
