Wheels are still used as an archaic form of measurement throughout Mid-World and the Borderlands...
I have a wheel that is attached to a foot counter and you roll it on the ground to get a measurement. Hardly archaic.

Yes and Roland, along with his Ka-tet, has walked many a wheel in these territories.

Sweet... that reminds me of a ride through Northern AZ a few years ago. I stopped in the middle of the road for a pic op just as you are there, mind you this was out in the middle of no where's ville. I was just about to say 'Cheez' when a semi came rolling around the corner, slammed on the brakes, layed on the horn as I scurried around wondering to myself if it was more important to try and get the bike out of the way or just me. I damn near soiled myself, but luckily he was able to slow down enough and make it safely around my bike and me. I threw my arms in the air saying sorry as he went by. DOH!

Not that kind of wheel, Gsun.

We got our snowmobiles out for the first time this year yesterday. There was just barely enough snow, 4-5 inches. But it was still BIG fun!

The bastion of demcracy has criminal activity?  Shocking I say, shocking.  Next thing you know some community organizer will get it in his mind he can become president.   :o

Did you know that while the 168 and 194 bulbs are similar, the 168 burns brighter and doesn't last as long...
