How many years is that in Sjoerd years????
Hmmm, let me think about it... Yeah, that would be worth it.
Cost is commensurate with the fact that Salma doesn't use her hands to give massages
To me, worst thing about expensive hotels: The more expensive, the more likely they are to charge for Wi Fi. Wazzup wi'dat?
Watching the geology porn now,,, thanks for the link.
They do it because they can. High rollers are less likely to complain. Wi-Fi is free at Los Arcos
And.....often those folks can expense the charges anyway. Before I retired I traveled a good bit on business and I never concerned myself about Wi-Fi charges or other charges.
most any hotel will comp you on it if you ask.
just talk to the manager and while others are not listening.
no different then the 4 majic discount words that can be used almost everyone in the world
"are there discounts today?"
these words save face with the person if they cannot offer them "today"
The likelihood that your key-card will fail is based on a complicated algorithm that factors in: How many bags you have, how far you are from reception, and just how badly you need to use the bathroom.
Just read a book written by a hotel veteran. Never forget that the front desk person can be tipped too. Then they will give you everything that's in their power to give.
I have the book as an .epub Ebook if any one wants a copy. Great reading. (PM me with your email address)
Craneguy, send the book!
I'll use it with my hotel students.
Check your Gmail, amongst those generous offers from the estates of dead Nigerians you've got a missive from yo.
Good score on the Sidi boots! I had no idea Michael Phelps was an ADV rider and selling his footwear.
Radio silence from the Mystery Rider, it likely means someone found his hiding spot and woke him up and put him to work.
He was posting on FB a day or two ago. Got a big insurance settlement recently so he's probably "invested" it. If I were him I would be in a cantina somewhere for a few days.
If we're talking about the same guy, this deserves further investigation!:eek1
Only a field geologist wears clothing with that many pockets!
I got lots of pockets. I also cary a magnet and sometimes magnetite. Maybe that effects my hotel keys, but I suspect it is my Blacberry that kills the keys, that is why I put them in a few different pockets.
BTW no matter how dull and worn out it may be, a rock hammer will never make as carry on past airport security.
The quick route to Chinipas!
I think Trice probably had a vest or two like that...and they let him fly planes!
SR, is that some Brunton bling bling around your neck?
I noticed the lack of orange flagging tape and spray can, guess you are the one in charge!
You guys are hilarious! I can only imagine being on a ride with this motely crew. I'm sure the real Adventure starts when the bikes stop rolling and the stories start building. GOOD STUFF.
I travel pretty often for work in the US and these hotels charge for every single thing they can. Tax for this, that and the other. It only becomes an issue when I'm not on company time. As mentioned earlier, the majority traveler for the big chains are business people who expense it anyway. So they deal with it.
A lot of travelers are using their cell phones as HOT SPOTS now also. Next time you're in a airport or Hotel that charges WiFi, take note to how many hotspots are running.
SR, that lupa party trick of yours is a good one!
Yes, it was Timmins as a matter of fact, amongst a few other places (USA and northern Ontario). But the Timmins geologists were pretty good, you hardly noticed them, in and out and then we were back to earning the bonus check. Unless, of course, one of the senior ones decided to ask the shift boss to borrow me and sent me off to do sampling in some old stope with bats and bad air.
Senior geologists are kind of like KLR or Gold Wing riders. They are masters of giving you "that look". Kind of like a stare that is a mix between an inquisition and an assessment.
When I worked south of the Coeur d'Alene, I was fascinated by the rock burst monitoring they were doing. That was some serious applied geology at work. It was also the only time I saw a shift boss with chews behind his lips and in his cheek, a cigar in his hand, and he was drinking a large cup of black 2 day old coffee. Just like home!
He's smiling because he has a pistol
A joke about geologists:
Two geologists were biking when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?"
The geologist replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."
The first geologist nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably wouldn't have fit you anyway."
I have already watched the first two episodes and found them fascinating
.:eek1. Maybe i'm just biased because Scotland is where i was born and spent my first 12 years. I think though, i'm channeling my inner geologist. Unfortunately I could never rock the vest. No pun intended SR.
