I raced against the fast guys of the day. I have an expert road race licence. Number 14. I won my fair share of races in several classes. Some of the guys were a bit more gifted than me. My sense of self preservation has got me this far mostly unscathed. But it also prevented me going beyond my abilities. I needed about 3 more years experience to be able to match the really fast guys ability. But finances and distance from the tracks, caused me to quit the pavement and go cross country ( mostly mountains ) racing. There was more to learn with this than the pavement. My goal was to finish in the top ten of a tough race. I have the trophy. I did my best work at SIR, now Pacific Raceway, which is SE of Seattle. I am the number 1 plate from 1974.I'm interested but what is PNW? I feel like I should know but....
Reading your past posts I could tell you were/are fast and probably famous.
You're likely one of my heroes. I mean, anyone that could win on a 60's roadracer has some nads :grin:
PM's are accepted....
Well said. A little emotion.well read the comments if u want to know why that is...
i honestly could care less about the well being of an adult suicidal deer. We have thousands of them in my area and hundreds scattered around dead. The hunters in my area perform large 50 man drives and kill them by the dozen.
if u dont want to share your stories with me fine.
stop wasting ur time discrediting mine.
if you or anyone else chooses to continue then i guess i will just let you. i have better things to do with my time then continue a one sided conversation.
it kinda makes me sad you say "let it slide"
why do any of you feel u need to prove something here? you cant take my experience from me. nobody can.
we use fire hoses and front end loaders where available. perhaps 90,000 is an overstimate then. it is literally as fast as i can toss them all day tho and several front end loader buckets worth. cat we use is 14 ton i think a bucket. normally take 30-hr break so maybe i can math a 7hr shift.90,000 lbs of sand a day. @ 25 lbs a load that is 450 loads an hour in an 8 hour day, or 7.5 loads a second. @50 Lb a load 3.75 shovels a second. I personally would use a front end loader myself.
yes deer have fawns also. i said i had a completely separate incident in which a fawn walked across the road licking salt up. also that a vehicle hit the fawn within 8 hrs of me working.Well said. A little emotion.
Facts usually need few words. Stretching the facts takes more. Many here like myself, notice things others say, and it makes us wonder. One example. In the post I am quoting, you refer to an adult suicidal deer. In post number six, it is a fawn.
I would not refer to it as discrediting your story, more like asking questions for clarity. It is your story, formed from your cognitive bias, which we all have. Over time folks will form an opinion based on your stories. I have many, and over time they appear. There are many threads. From your last sentence, I would suggest that most here have nothing to prove, and they do not need to.
But since you asked: I am impressed by the guys like Rollin, who actually puts on the miles. Guys like 721 who rides to work every day in crappy weather and traffic. Steve who really does know stuff about oil. Plus all the guys who have years of experience, too many to name.
Not me.@uk like 15 years ago i seen a video of some guys riding in sand dunes. one of the guys was uncle krusty and they were the group "dirt demons" or "dirt devils" something along those lines. was that you or are u a fan of them? totally unrelated?
