cross country skiers

The town has been overrun by "nordic skiers." They've filled up a few hotels in town, which I guess is good, but they don't spend a nickel anywhere else. For the past 10 years a local restaurant has put on a thanksgiving feast for all the locals. If you don't have family to go visit, or you just don't feel like travelling, you could go down there and chow down on some turkey. If you want to leave a donation, that's cool. Last year about 90 of these cheapass skiers went down there and feasted. Then left and didn't kick in a nickel. So this year, no feast.

But what bugs the hell out of me is they walk down the middle of the fucking street. I realize the sidewalks don't get plowed, but that's no reason to walk down the MIDDLE of the street. And I mean smack dab in the middle of the street. 4 or 5 abreast. Sometimes my brakes don't work too well. One of these days some local is going to "accidentally" mow down some of those assholes.
