I think it would be an major pain in the backside to live in the "Gold Fish Bowl" many movie/singers etc find themselves in after a certain level of success.
I agree - he deserves that tranquility.

I don't understand people who think they are entitled to a piece of someone, celebrity or not.

Regret. We certainly didn't stop wars. A lot has changed though the anti-change party wields a lot of power. Colorado is a middle of the road state, but has recognized marijuana prohibition is impossible. Civil liberties are in danger—voting, privacy are 2 problem areas (NSA is on every thread, but never posts anything). Society is not static and moves forward with difficulty, but for hundreds of years has moved in a progressive direction.

"Yeah..... well, I didn't get it, did I?"

Regret.

This clip from Five Easy Pieces is the ultimate metaphor....

The irony for me is that hippies were anti-establishment, but still needed electricity from the establishment to power their electric guitars!

Air guitars don't need any electricity.

Regrets in that concepts like peace, love and understanding has morphed into a liberal, socialist give away programs that are more of a hand out than a hand up. Regrets that some of the ideals have turned into less than ideal realities. I could go on, but then lines get drawn and it moves us away from the unity we have, which is AS ownership and enjoyment.

I guess I succumbed to some of those liberal ideations tonight, dirigible....
used the outdoor shower with nothing but the moon and stars overhead.

However, there were no hand ups (or outs)....
I did it alone.

(Fellow Airstreamers, if you get a chance, try it. It's really nice. There are some portable shower enclosures, if you must).

Good for you! How many of us can say we have done this?!

Ummm, not me.

FWIW, we were in a forest campground recently in Vermont that had listed in its' rules "no public nudity". We wondered if this referred to outside showering or other events sans clothing.

Vermont does not have a law forbidding nudity; they only limit it to areas "where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy." Which apparently includes most wilderness areas. I guess the campground had to post the "No public nudity" rule because state law doesn't prohibit it.

I first found out about this quirk of Vermont law while planning to do America's Great Loop, which includes Lake Champlain. On the AGLCA Forums, one member told how he chased off a party boat that moored too close and kept him awake all night. He finally drove them off by attending to all of his boating chores in the nude; he admits it wasn't a pretty sight. When the party boaters called the law on him, the state trooper told the party boaters that on one's own boat, anchored in the middle of a lake, he had a reasonable expectation of privacy and so he wasn't doing anything wrong. Instead, the party boaters were cited for invading his privacy!

I gave up aspirations of doing the Great Loop in favor of Airstreaming, but I never forgot that story.

Will not comment about the hands or lack of them.
Hope you did not let the shower water run on the ground.Thats gray water and God,the rangers,the tree huggers and the Haz Mat crew that has to come clean up after you will get you.I didnt think hippies did that to our envirement.
IT MAY BE GODLY,BUT NOT SMART,TO BAPTIZE A BOBCAT.
