Latest Status Updates

On my ride to Niland this morning I saw a tall, bald, bullet headed crazy mofo wearing a red plaid jacket and white sneakers set fire to a travel trailer near the canal on the right side of the road going out before the welcome outpost.

He was grinning at me as I rode by. I passed an IID truck going to investigate. I did not have my phone. Soon I passed Niland fire department going that way.

Beware, he likes fire.
