(moribid... i know)

new mexico is cowboys territory, which means the steelers are the 2nd most popular team and you are guaranteed to run into a steelerfan no matter where you go. the guy in the penn state gear walked by and saw me taking photos of the towel. he was from central PA and a die hard penn st/steelerfan. turned out he knew the pilots because he was one himself and was totally stoked i had a towel. of course i took plenty of pictures for him with his camera, too.

gotta love steelernation and instruments of instant death. :tt02:

HA! thanks, but no thanks. one thing we do have is mountains. if i wanna see that cold white shit, all i gotta do is take a 30 minute ride up the hill. :sun:

(snow is like grandchildren... great to have visit, but you dont want them living with you permamently)
