I Am Not In The Grand Canyon

I Am Not In The Grand Canyon

Checking the clock this morning I see right about now I was supposed to be passing Ooh-Aah Point in the Grand Canyon on a planned rim-to-rim-to-rim hike with my brother. Instead...well, you know. Every time I read about the shutdown, I find myself thinking it's junior high all over again, only with trillion-dollar budgets and nuclear missiles. Kudos to Republicans for threatening to blow up the world if they don't get what they want. What could possibly go wrong with that?

  2. Dan Conger says:

    Ridiculous … no way to overturn a vote by traditional means, so they just hold the entire nation hostage. Was supposed to take my nephew up Half Dome before the first snow. No such luck.

    I’d bet there are quite a few trip reports out there of the brave few who have said “fuck this I’m taking my trip as planned!” and jumped the gate. If nobody is working who’s gonna catch you?
