I went to Kreb's house today to ask what things are appropriate to share.. I was told everything if it is within good taste and respectful of boundaries.

I reached out to Krebs when I was moving from the east coast to west.
. I first wanted to find a water view place in Mexico before restarting the work grind. I found a spot on Craigslist and Skyped the owner.
He asked for 1st, last and a security deposit. I asked Krebs if he could go and verify that the place was real and I wasn't going to lose my money to some cyber nut.. I offered to pay..he refused any money. He requested I buy him a beer,taco or coffee in person.
He inspected the place and told me it was legit..
5 weeks later I was able to make payment for the Krebs gesture and I got a new friend out of it..
Krebs lived in a well kept ocean view house with a@270 degree panoramic of the Pacific..His home is one of the highest in the small village. He had a micro crop of tomatoes, strawberries and cucumbers..lots of plants and animals.. humming bird feeders and his 5 dogs.. Pancho and Lefty amongst the pack..

Krebs described himself as pretty ugly.. maybe that's why we got along. He was 6ft 6 inches tall..100% nice guy..he liked everything and everyone.. he was nice as a default personality.
Within the last year his life was a bit of a lotto win..he took a run of the mill DNA test for @$75-99 dollars and with the results overturned enough internet and Facebook stones to uncover a son and a grandson..he was a little uneasy about the past but ultra happy, super stoked about the future..my girlfriend and I drove him to the San Diego airport for the intial flight to meet his discovered kin ..he was equal parts scared and nervous and filled with positive anticipation..
It all seemed to be going well until his sudden death..
I hope everyone who has a genetic tie or just a personal one is as much like him as possible..we all will benefit..
The guy was generous and genuine..
I will cry more when I think of what was lost and smile when I think of what was gained by knowing him..
RIP Lobo
Thank you for sharing probably the most honest and warm comment that's ever been posted in this forum.

Cheers :)

This is just an idea to throw out there and if nobody likes it that's fine, we can move on.

I'd like to change the title of this thread to honor one of the most beloved members of this forum's history to:

"Krebsy's Free Form/Chaos Thread".

Please PM me with your thoughts, good or bad.

Cheers :)

Thanks for sharing. This is largely an impersonal forum. It’s good to read post like this.

Thank you for sharing this!

Many of you will remember the old Velo News forum before it imploded. I rode (and drank:) with three people from that forum when they were in Boise, and two others when I was in AZ. Its fun to meet in person!

too often...turning the exceptional into the ordinary...

just saw Susan's post, and did not expect that, nor the reaction I've just had to it.
shock, deep sadness, disappointment, etc... but reminded of the Tibetan philosophy of not to be saddened when your cup gets broken, but to rejoice in all that the cup gave you in it's time.
seems to fit nicely with our experiences with Krebs...

Sex sells, and robots are no exception. One of the most expensive consumer robots under development, a machine named Harmony, is a US$15,000 union of silicone curves and silicon chips. Part of an estimated US$30 billion industry, Harmony has software that remembers birthdays and can quote Shakespeare. Harmony is also equipped for intimate human-robot relations. Sex doll maker Realbotix, in its marketing materials, bills Harmony as “the perfect companion.”
...
In an interview published last year, Douglas Hines, chief executive of interactive sex doll maker TrueCompanion, told the Foundation for Responsible Robotics: “Roxxxy, our sex robot, provides what every adult needs – unconditional love and support. The ability to feel the loving embrace of a lover is a right every adult should be granted. We provide a solution to help adults meet their social as well as sexual needs.”

RIP.
Very sad to hear this. Loved his posts.

Don't know how I missed this one.

RIP Krebs. Baja will never be the same.
 
I frequently think of things that would fit in this thread, but know that I can't do justice to Krebs thread so I end up not posting. This one might be OK: I was at a gathering and a guy said "animated porn is amazing". There are a lot of things there: NO ONE responded, most of us had a :eek: look, he was the friend of a neighbor who was attending the gathering (didn't know any of us prior), and he continued on to tell us why cartoon porn was his go to. I quickly slid out the side to get a beer (even though my beer was still half full), and when I looked over a few minutes later, he was standing in the same spot, alone.

The Treasure of Oak Island's Money Pit

The Oak Island Money Pit is the site of the world's longest running hunt for lost treasure, and the hunt is on again!

July 15, 2010: After a two year halt, the team have finally been granted a Treasure Trove Licence allowing them to continue their search for treasure on Oak Island. Find out more about the treasure hunt.

For hundreds of years, treasure hunters have ventured to Nova Scotia, Canada and tried to recover the treasure lies in tyhe Money Pit, protected by a series of ingeneous traps. As treasure hunters have attempted to recover the bounty from the Money Pit, cleverly engineered flood tunnels flood the shaft with sea water.

RIP Krebsy. You live on.
 
Just for reference. Krebs ashes are scattered on a hill that overlooks the Pacific right near Primo Tapia..less than a couple of miles from his house.
With all the rain everything is green and the wild flower patches are in bloom. .
 
Female coworker-you ride a lot do you use a bottle or a pack?
Me-bottle except on rides over 3 hours.
F-when I use a bottle I spray my taint 1/2 of the time and choke.
M-trying not to laugh...uhmmm, what do you mean by taint?
F-the little thing in the back of my throat.
M-that is your uvula. Most people refer to (describe area) as the taint.
F-laughing/embarrassed...that would explain the weird looks I get when talking about my taint! Like when I had strep throat and told people about my inflamed taint!
 
Not sure how many fans here...the Women's College World Series was fantastic in every way. The level of play continues to improve year after year. As the teams get beat those advancing are guaranteed to let you see what the game is supposed to look like.
Last night UCLA took the title..what a fvckin game! For anybody who loves sports it's a must see..and if you didn't see it live a couple of day old video won't be stale ..
