Confiscated!!


My Water Bottles!!
I was out doing my run.....up and down my parking garage for 1 1/2 hrs and I placed my extra water bottles on the top floor.
Well.....I came up the second time around and they were gone!! A City of Evanston truck pulled up and asked me if they were mine--I said, "Yes, what's the problem??" They said it was dangerous leaving them out in the open, don't I know what's going on at the airports!! I told them this wasn't the Middle East and this is really taking things a bit too far.
The guy agreed and kindly gave me back my water bottles. But he told me I MUST place them in an inconspicuous spot so that no crazy teenager will come and throw them over into the street for fun!!
Have we totally lost our common sense in this world?????
Driggs, Idaho is looking more and more appealing to me!!!!!

The nail that sticks out gets hammered down.  Do not ask questions.  Do not rebel against the Evanston. 

Conform!  Conform!

Well I put out the water for the Apline runners and I got my gatarade stolen on day. I try to minize how long they are out there now.

Just catching up - loved the pictures from the past few weeks! You have a nice group of friends and family there!

I laughed about the water bottles. I thought his concern would be that someone might spike them, or littering! Maybe it's time for a camel back? You'll probably need one in the desert, and in the heat it's really nice on your back when full of ice cubes and gatorade!
