  3. Awesome shot and even more awesome that you went down there to do this, dude! Thank you!
    I’m off the next four days, but I’m sure I’ll use this photo often in the future when I’m asked such questions as:
    “Why is the road closed?”
    What I want to say: To prevent you from driving into a landslide where you’d get anything from a flat tire to dying in another landslide.
    What I will say: Look at this picture.
    “Can I go through anyway?”
    My facial expression: o.O
    What I want to say: The barricades are there to give you a nice safe place to turn around before you drive another 1/4 mile into a landslide where you’d get anything from a flat tire to dying in another landslide.
    What I will say: Look at this picture!
    “When will the road open?”
    My expression: o.O
    What I want to say: (or in this case, do) smf and smh
    What I will say: LOOK at this PICTURE!
    “Why weren’t there any signs before we drove all the way down?”
    You guessed in; My expression: o.O
    What I want to say: Hhhhmmmm…. uuummmm….. because this isn’t an amusement park, so our landslides aren’t timed and on hydraulics to remove them after your ‘thrill ride’ is done?
    What I will say: LOOK AT THIS PICTURE!!

  4. Probably the best comment I have received in a very long time, Tony. Thanks for bringing some levity into my evening. You will last in the service industry as long as you keep this sense of humor. One of my favorite tourist questions when I worked the gift shop in PVC up above the road was, “Are we above sea level?” “Are you looking through a periscope?”

  5. Aaaww, you’re welcome, Kate. I’m glad you enjoyed it and I’m happy it had the effect I was going for. Brennon and I get chances to joke a bit now and then, so I know he’ll get a kick out of it!
    “Are we above sea level?” – that’s hilarious and one I’m amazed to say that I’ve not heard…. yet! Your reply is awesome!
