I would concur with the Moon of April. I spent New Year's Day night at
the Holiday Inn Express. Jacuzzi tub IN THE ROOM!!! Take a freezing, sore
hiker that is 4 days from finishing a thru-hike and put him in a hot
Jacuzzi...that is a spiritual thing. Then, he hiker hobbles over to that
steak joint with ayce salad. (Man, did I get a few looks in that place.
It was freezing out and I was wearing long-johns and shorts.) Two
frost-bitten thumbs up.  (My good friend pittsia burghovia joined me
here. We made fun of people who are different.)
