I really don't think that €23 for a 2+ hour train ride to the northern reaches of Holland is very expensive at all. Hell, a taxi ride from Schiphol to Amsterdam Centraal costs twice as much. In general, the Nederlands Spoorwegen is fairly affordable, and with specials for a day return or weekend ret...

Well, I am sure that the mystery weed isn't the Blueberry. As near as we could tell it was an indica from the Busdoctor, but what specific strain we couldn't decide. I guess some "experimentation" with the weeds from there is in order!

Truly, the gods are pleased. Today marks nearly a full week of sun here in Holland. Combine that with a warming trend and it has been positively delightful. I am sure that Amsterdam looked even better to you in the warm afternoon sun after being gone so long. The days are starting to get longer and ...

EXCELLENT! I am glad that the the wee one will be well looked after. I am looking forward to seeing you both again. This party is really going to be a blast. The "scenery" should be exceptionally good this time around with the glamourous outfits and a few new recruits in addition to the old favorite...

We are the ones who should be thanking you. The party was really quite lovely, I only wish I didn't have to leave so early. But alas, work the next day would have been a real killer had I staid any longer. As for the party, it is still 20's era ganster style is still what I am shooting for. I hope t...

I'll bet that the notes come in handy quite often. Do you ever bring your note back to the Dam with you? I think that it would be fun if you were able to make notes about a few of the places that you like over a period of time and compare them to see how both you and the places change as time passes...

I was actually a bit peeved that it snowed all day on Saturday, and I didn't take a single picture of the city covered in a pristine blanket of white. By the time it occured to me to take a picture on Sunday, there was practically no snow left. Doh!

Oh well, perhaps next time I'll have a chance.

Thanks for another great post. It was great to meet you last night. Unfortunately for me I happened to meet you on the night that your pool form returns... I would really like to have a rematch the next time you are in town. It was a shame that I had to leave so early, but my friend's birthday was f...

WOW, what a great trip report. I really enjoyed the stream of consciousness approach along with all of the little details. As for the Cannabis Cup, I have to agree with you guys on the norganized aspect of it. But what do you expect from a magazine for and run by stoners. That wouldn't be so bad in ...

Hey can't we all just get along?

I think that the only kind of flame that we should be discussing here is the one that we hold to a big old spliff.

Another open invitation!

Not to be outdone by Vermeer, I have decided to invite fellow Channelites to a house party that I will be having in March. People who are in Amsterdam on Saturday, March 8th and are interested in attending a Roaring 20's costume party (Think the Cotton Club meets Half Baked with a little bit of the ...

Hey Vermeer! Good to see you back on the board and good to see that you have another party brewing. Naturally, I have another party planned as well. I'll post details in another thread. I hope that you and others can make it!
