    Ya see there @mountaingirl sara...that is good form. Fully relaxed and supported. It helps to place a few sheets of TP beneath your thighs to aid against pointy bark, tho the bugs will have their way with you if you use a tree log regardless. With all that said, boys would have a hard time with this method, with our pointys wanting some extra space; otherwise, we’d pee all over ourselves. I prefer the half-cheek method using a flat boulder, tho a tree stump would do as well if tall enough. YMMV.

    No I came across this at the Westminster Mall in OC. I think there was also an Orchid show.

    There is a Vietnamese club up there that does a show every year - some really amazing trees. I go with one of my buddies and he always takes me out for some good Bún :)

    Sidebar: The more divisive chatter that goes on here, the less I'll be likely to continue participating. I know we can't talk bikes every second. Sorry, but I don't care any more about your political leanings than I do what gets you off in bed or what deity you worship or not. Kumbaya, ya fking dirtheads.

    Agreed, now lets get back to talking about Hightowers and Smashes and how it needs to stop raining by Wednesdays so the trails dry out for the weekend.

    No Brett.
    What I am doing is making a public announcement for all to see, read, and understand. I guess I could have sent a mass email to everyone.
    The point is that this site is committed publicly to mountain biking, yet, we keep bringing up politics. I am simply saying that I'm tired of the politics on imtbtrails. I'm politically active and opening up private conversation to anyone that wants to discuss offline. Does that clear it up?
