Just need to fine tune the wording....

Closer to me in Kansas they had the biggest waste of time "amendment" to gun laws that really wasn't even an amendment on their ballot today. And Rhode Island's state name change--give me a break.

Michael Bennett actually proposed an amendment that snowboarding be OUTLAWED to those who don't subscribe to federal health care!!!
Oh wait, sorry, the stupid/absurd/idiotic/wasteful commercials have got me thinking everyone is evil.
Almost my 1200th, equally nifty.

No sh*t. What I can't decide is whether November 3rd should be made a national day of celebration since the election cycle is over, or a day of mourning because some scoundrel will be in office (regardless of who wins).

You probably could add a 3000' gain clause and hide it within another amendment. That's the trendy way everything gets passed anyway.
Will it be 3000' total (gross/net gain/on the descent/etc)

It seems a little ridiculous to park several miles down the road so that you can comply with an arbitrary rule. I didn't even park at the "upper trailhead", it was full, but we were about 1/4 mile below that. Still not 3,000 feet.
Just do Sherman in the winter. Then you're forced to park down the road. That fixes the problem for Bierstadt too.

+1! This is one of my pet peeves, actually. It irks me like people who don't signal lane changes or people who won't accelerate fast enough in a merge lane. I have many, many traffic peeves, but I'll save them for another thread....
