To get this sign, you'll have to land somewhere in Kansas and drive in from there. ugh

You sound like the folks:rotflmao: who went to Holland for a vacation and end up spending it in the coffee shop, becuaus, well, somehow, the motivation to go out and see the sites just wasn't there.

Doesn't the mileage go from East to West?
...because you know, that's where the people came from. :-). Oh, and the sun.
In which case it's near Utah.

Plus, you could always go to the center of Texas....

Yep. In my state, mile markers go west to east.

Just seems wrong. Suspect Californians had a hand in this.

 

Maybe it stems from the Transcontinental Railroad built from both directions. Central Pacific went West to East. Except...the part that goes above Colorado in Wyoming was built East to West. Arrgh...It's the Californians again.

How are Mile Markers used?

Mile markers on Colorado roads are generally numbered from south to north and from west to east. For example, mile marker 1 on Interstate 25 (MM 1) is one mile north of the Colorado/New Mexico border. MM 1 on I-70 is one mile east of the Utah/Colorado border (odd numbers are assigned to highways running north and south, as I-25. East and west highways are numbered evenly, as U.S. 40).

 

Highways that do not begin at the border start with MM 1 one mile east or north of the highway starting point. For example, I-76 runs from Wadsworth Blvd. in the Denver area 180 miles northeast to Julesburg at the Nebraska border. MM 1 is one mile east of Wadsworth and MM 180 is the last mile marker on I-76.

 

Another example is state highway CO 119 in the foothills west of Denver. CO 119 begins in Clear Creek Canyon where U.S. 6 bends to the south and CO 119 continues north. MM 1 on 119 is one mile north of the 6/119 intersection. The final mile marker is at I-25 after CO 119 winds through the foothills and turns east at Nederland.

 

Mile markers are also used to determine exit numbers on Interstate highways across Colorado. Interstate exits are numbered by the closest mile marker on that highway. For instance, the I-25 Prospect Street Exit 268 at Fort Collins is approximately 268 miles north of the Colorado-New Mexico border and the closest mile marker is MM 268.

 

Mile markers are generally posted on the right side of the highway. The markers help to locate incident sites, for example, where a motorist might be stranded.

Yeah, no doubt those Californians were smokin' some fat joints just upwind of the mile marker committee.

post #280 of 297

important notice:

 

still not one report of public disorderly conduct or arrests due to marijuana use here in steamboat.........  I thought the world was ending and all the children of tourists (not locals) were going to become pot-crazed zombies????  

 

 

 

but the blotter is still full of alcohol related incidents....  

post #281 of 297

Finndog,

 

the same thing here in Summit, CO, although often our alcohol related perps do have weed on them. But they aren't being busted for being stoned, just drunk and disorderly.

 

I haven't even noticed more 'saftey' meetings on the hill. Actually, I have noticed none which is slightly unusual. The only pot related problems being reported are shops running out of product.

Meanwhile, at a high end ski shop in California(Think Bogner and kjus), I've smelled the lingering odor of pot on customers more than I recall in the past, and its not legal here. :dunno

post #283 of 297

But it will be.

post #284 of 297

Considering the average customer that comes in to the shop where I work, and the fact that MJ isn't legal here (yet) I think the hoopla about dirt bag ski bums smoking pot willy nilly in a state where its legal is a little funny.

The last joint pass I've witnessed was Sunday at Deer Valley on the chair in front of me between a couple of guys wearing $1,000 jackets.  I'd bet it was pretty good stuff.

Inaugural MY420 Tour:

 

Does pot contribute to drownings the way alcohol does? Especially in Russia.

 

You Couldn't Make This Stuff Up. Also, note the "McDonald's Classifying itself as a supermarket"

 

2011:

Russia Finally Declares Beer Alcohol, Not Foodstuff

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/21/russia-declares-beer-alcohol_n_906297.html


Quote:

Until Wednesday, Russia did not consider beer to be a type of alcohol since it contained less than ten percent alcohol. President Dmitry Medvedev has now signed a bill that regulates beer sales in the same manner as other spirits.

 

The move was done in part to curb alcohol abuse; Russia imbibes alcohol on more twice the critical level set by the World Health Organization.

With the new bill, beer can no longer be sold like a soft drink and it will not be allowed to be sold between 11PM and 8AM. Moreover, beer will no longer be allowed to be sold at public transport stops, gas stations, airports, and kiosks. These shops account for about a third of all beer sales.

 

The law will not take effect until 2013. In the meantime, the Kremlin may have other foodstuff issues to worry about, such as McDonald's classifying itself as a supermarket.

ironically, the only smoke I smelled this entire past week was from teenagers smoking cigarettes on the lift which I find far more offensive than anything else.   Plenty of Texans during music fest carrying 2 beers at a time at lunch though....  

 

just to clarify I don't smoke and don't support drinking on the mountain either.  

post #288 of 297

Yeah if you're shopping for Bogner, you got the good stuff!

I thought it was more than a little funny from the git.

That's funny. I am curious about these 419.99999 signs, how can you tell when it's 420?

Once you think about it, it's too late. Then you're at 420.00001.

See, it's a diabolical plot to eliminate the number.

It's Calculus. Try this experiment: Stand in a room, go half the distance to the wall. Then half that distance. Then half again. Keep going half the distance. Let us know if you ever get there.

 

Note: The above will work differently in the State of Colorado. It's the air I'm told.

Toes cause they're in front.- Walk like a bound Penguin for best results.

This will be on the 420 Tour.
