RANT to hikers who leave their used toilet paper on the trails (or just off the trails). It doesn’t decompose as quickly as you might think, and you are leaving your unsightly garbage for others who are hoping to enjoy a wilderness experience. If you need to pee while hiking, please pack out your used TP with you, or better yet, use a washable reusable piece of fabric. Remember, leave no trace!

RAVE to the Seattle Mariners fans for not bringing obnoxious cowbells, drums and other noise makers to the games. Watching a game in Oakland’s stadium is painful.

RANT to the bicycle riders who insist on using the off-street, clearly defined sidewalks when there are bike lanes nearby. What are you people thinking? It’s dangerous for everyone.
