Who is the irresponsible, uncaring owners if this property...??? It is their responsible to provideRead More the water to tenants and if not they have to provide another alternative. Totally agree with checking into hotel and removing the cost from your rent. Check your lease and check the laws. You have rights...!!!

I am impressed by the number of people I know personally who have been well employed in recentRead More months. By well employed I mean with good paying jobs. A few others with lesser skills found jobs with those all important bennies. Very encouraging!

Autumn, I've made several around my town, damn cops keep coming along and tearing em down. Now IRead More realize, that Private Property means it's off limits to people like me, but come on, all the best high points are on Private Property and it's not like I'll get away with zipping down a utility pole, lol. One of the best Ziplines I ever made was on Pacific Railroad Property, it was a multiple transfer point Zipline, basically tree to tree, Couple friends and I built a tree house in the tallest tree on the property, took us about three months, always moving under the cover of darkness with drill bits, boards, foundation etc. Eventually we had built a total of 5 tree houses on the property and invited the homeless to live in them. The primary tree house consisted of three floors and a Balcony, it had Power thanks to the stolen car batteries, and we even had running water! Unfortunately after a mere 5 months, one fateful July 4th 1999 the Police came and raided us.

This fourth of July is actually my 15th anniversary since the first time I was handcuffed and placedRead More in the back of a squad car! Tried getting away on foot but the cops surrounded us on the property and so we all hid. I was caught fifteen minutes later hiding under some plywood when a cop walked up and put a shotgun to my head and told me "he'd blow my effing head off". From there I was handcuffed, detained and forced to sit Indian Style on the ground. I had a bit of an authority problem so one of the cops had to force me to the ground. LOL. The next thirty minutes was spent being a smartass and then having the officer threaten to "beat my ass" for talking back to him. Once my friends were all rounded up, a patty wagon showed up from a neighboring police department, 13 of us got busted that night. When they got me back at the station they tried threatening me with all kinds of crap like charging me with "Gang Affiliation" cause one guy just happened to be in a gang, Possession of Explosives and a couple other charges. In the end due to my being a minor and the evidence at hand I was slapped with Curfew Violation, Trespass, "Minor in Possession of Lighter" and Minor in Possession of Fireworks.11:57 PM Friday Night, 15 years! Ahhh memories!
