Well, what was supposed to be the chapters biggest event quickly denegrated into a wussy contest. One by one they sheepishly dropped out claiming rain as the reason. First Pilsner, the Ari, then Tribeless, Auggie with some lame excuse of previous comittments. So throwing weather forecasts to the wind, I soldiered on up to the Green Mt. State to the planned meeting place in North Bennington, with our grascious hosts Dukegirl and Vespafitz. YEs I had to leave NY at 6am in the rain to be there at 9am, but I did. No sign of Dizave and Rabia, and nothing but closed curtains and dark windows at the vespa house. I knocked on the door for awhile, and I know I heard whispering inside, but no answer. Hell I even heard a toilet flush and floor boards creaking. Well I can take a hint, and decided that this chapter ride was going on even if the president had to do it by himself. So into the Vermont wilderness I went, green green green, nothng but green. Would have been nicer with more people, but this fair weather policy the chapter has adopted without my approval is going to end and its going to end quick. Your either in or your out, and I dont care if any of these bastards want to whine about long distances in the rain and housework and lawns to mow etc etc, this is not how the goddam chapter is going to run. Sorry, This is a ride report. With no further ado. I present the very green Vermont.
