Treefrog – back in the day (50 years ago) one could actually walk down into the canyon at Bryce

Posted by Alex Valdor @ 20:37 on June 22, 2019  

Now they would prefer you to leave your car at the entry and board park busses . That means that at the principal lookouts , one is treated to the smell and noise of clattering diesels …same in Zion’s the last time I was there .

Correction : (after looking at the current park map ) it is still possible to follow the queen’s trail from Sunset Pt. to Sunrise Pt.

And coincidence , when I was a college freshman , one of the prettiest girls on campus was from Hanksville.

the hogback isn’t easy to get to.  it’s on state route 12.  12 runs between torrey, near the hq of capitol reef nat. park, and highway 89 just south of panguitch.  the hogback is near the middle of that, between escalante (small), and boulder, (tiny).  not on the beaten path to anywhere.  you can also access it via the burr trail from bullfrog marina on lake powell.


the burr trail isn’t paved all the way-


-and the ferry from hall’s crossing to bullfrog is shut down due to low water.  you can get to bullfrog from hanksville.  not an easy place to get to, but it and the rest of route 12 are worth seeing.



brice canyon (national) and kodachrome canyon (state) parks are down that way – both worth a look-see


Breedlove’s AMX and Airplane

Posted by Alex Valdor @ 19:08 on June 22, 2019  

I owned an AMX at the time , so was hanging around his pit area a lot . I had a good camera at the time and on Friday he asked if I would get photos of the car and plane together since they had matching (AMC) racing colors , before loading the car onto the trailer the next morning . I said that I would for a ride with him .
The deal was on ! I had to sit on the floor pan , the suspension and tires were rock hard , so it almost shook the fillings out of my teeth** , and my ears rang for weeks , but it was the ride of my life !

** the Salt has little ridges every few inches , so the ride is like driving on a cobblestone road , only worse .


Treefrog I spent several years in Utah , but that is a new one for me !

Posted by Alex Valdor @ 18:50 on June 22, 2019  

Wendover and the Salt Flats ( probably the only person who can say they rode at Bonneville with Craig Breedlove in his record setting AMX at the end of Speedweek ) , the High Uintas , Moab and Arches , Pangitch and Bryce , Zion’s , Cedar Breaks , Lake Powell , even Delta , on the way to Baker NV and the caves ( between Delta and Baker on July 4 weekend , drove in that heat without A/C , and for over an hour without meeting another car , thinking “If we blow a radiator hose , we’ll die before anyone finds us !” , but never saw or drove the Hogback . Next time out there to visit the grandkids , I will .

I was able to watch the beginning of Tucker last night on my phone. He brought on people last night telling how they were getting rich and even promoted by warmongering in the Mid East . How the media loves it,especially the left because it gives them something to talk abourz Bolton was one and how he must be happy with the selling of slaves in Tripoli now. Goldberg who wrote award winning fake news on conspiracy WMDs that cost 100,000s civilian deaths and 1000s of our military. Instead of getting kicked out of journalism he got promoted with left DC media fighting for him and one gave him and his kids rare horses. There’s a reward for being a murderer by a big mouth and fake news pumping conspiracy theories. War at other people expense. They should draft them send them there. People who feel inadaguate do this the speakers said.
That we have a history of this from Polk, Rosevelt and WW11, V Nam, then Iraq. Some sick people behind the scenes.

Please explain to me how this cannot but. benefit gold. Thank you=a disruption in the price of oil will force the unwinding of trillions in interest rate swap derivatives

Posted by Richard640 @ 13:11 on June 22, 2019  
Martin Armstrong is reporting that a lot of the buying came from the Middle East and that now that we’re above $1375 hedges are lifting and short-covering is what took gold to $1415.
But it also means that something bigger is brewing in the capital markets that both Iran and Trump understand. And maybe that muted response from oil has more to do with that.
As Pepe Escobar lays out convincingly in his latest article, Iran’s threats against global oil shipping aren’t aimed at disrupting the global economy per se. There’s plenty of oil stored in Strategic Reserves around the world to keep things operating during any U.S. military operation to destroy Iran’s navy (which wouldn’t take very long) and open the strait to oil traffic.
It is that a disruption in the price of oil will force the unwinding of trillions in interest rate swap derivatives already at risk because of the tenuous hold on reality Deutsche Bank has, since DB clears a super-majority of all such derivative contracts for the whole of Europe.
No one wants to see $300 per barrel oil. That Goldman Sachs is posting potential targets of $1000 per barrel tells you where they are positioning themselves, as if they know something? Goldman? Have insider knowledge?
Please! It is to laugh.
What we are looking at here is the ultimate game of brinkmanship. Trump is saying his maximum pressure campaign will break Iran in the end and if they go one step further (which they won’t directly) he will eliminate them.
Iran, on the other hand, is stating categorically that if Trump doesn’t allow Iran to trade than no one will. And that threat is a real one, given their regional influence. Incalculable financial and political damage can be done by Iran and its proxies around the region through attacks on oil and gas infrastructure.
What’s important is to know that the rules of the game have changed. Iran has taken all the punches to the nose it will take from Trump without retaliating. When you corner someone and give them no way out you invite the worst kind of counter-attack.
Governments will fall, markets will collapse. And no one gets out without scars.

I betcha

The ones slowing this need to step down for CONFLICT OF INTEREST! ADULTS need to get behind these girls because they’re being threatened! It took decades for women to get scholarships and the people who are supposed to be representing women are not only failing them they’re showing a conflict of intererst and incompetent to represent them. Put a horse in the men’s race and tell them it identifys with a women or man in this case.

Good article. What should we do with advisers who want to put us into an unwarranted war? That sounds like the worst kind of treason to me.

From Wolanchuk today—-[I disagree about rates]

History of Gold Bulls

Here’s the new chapter.

Gold to $165o, silver to $20, and Bitcoin to 50k in the ultimate distraction exercise.

Those banker guys are real cut-ups no?


Not a Luongo fan – he hates Trump, but praises him here and asks what his next move will be

Who Survives The Iran Counter-Offensive?

I give Trump a lot of credit here for not falling into the trap set for him. He now has to begin removing those responsible for this quagmire and I’m sure that will be on the docket when he meets with Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping next week at the G-20.”

Are all these gold bull articles making anyone nervous?

Posted by Buygold @ 7:52 on June 22, 2019  

or just me??

I know I’m a great indicator for whatever the opposite will happen – let’s hope it stays that way.

I don’t see how this could hurt golds’ prospects…do you?

Dr.Doom Warns Of Imminent Sino-American Bust-Up After G-20

As matters stand, the probability of a deal eventually being reached is low (my colleagues and I put it at just 25%

Moreover, Xi is not an absolute ruler. While he controls most of the levers of power, there are still factions within the Communist Party of China (CPC) that could turn on him if he does not mount a sufficiently aggressive response to the US. He is not in a position to accept a deal in which he – or China – loses face or power

The danger is that Trump, too, would prefer a partial or full-scale trade and technology war to a weak deal. If Trump makes any notable concessions, he will be accused by both Democrats and right-wing pundits of appeasing China and betraying American blue-collar workers. Even if he can’t secure a favorable deal, at least he can say he remained tough. Among those who have Trump’s ear are national-security hawks – some of them modern-day Dr. Strangeloves – who believe that China is so fragile that an economic shock could precipitate a political collapse, and even regime change. This is a dangerous game to play, because it could lead to actions that turn a cold war into a hot war. The mere presence of such extreme voices in Trump’s orbit suggests that the administration’s intent is to contain China at any cost


Where does that leave us? If both Xi and Trump find the third scenario attractive, neither will be willing to meet halfway on a deal. That makes the second scenario – a full-scale trade and technology war – the most likely outcome, given that a controlled escalation is inherently unstable.
As matters stand, the probability of a deal eventually being reached is low (my colleagues and I put it at just 25%).
