long railing, level terrain, West metro?
« on: April 07, 2010, 11:25:49 AM »
Hey, this is a bit weird, but I am looking for a long pipe-style railing somewhere in the West Metro that has equal ground heights on either side, but isn't necessarily amazingly level itself.  Anyone have some suggestions?  It's just for a drill.

It has occurred to me that writing complaint letters to the city about walkways that have a significant slope but no railing  along the walkway are a great way for things like this to get built.  Is this considered cheating?  If you complain  about speeding cars, the city will put in speed bumps.  If you complain about just about anything, they will spend money to make things safer.  Again, is it cheating to provoke construction of a barrier?
I found my railing over near the Target in Plymouth.  There's no reason for the  railing, nobody would ever walk over there, and yet there it is.

Is it cheating?  No, I don't think so.  I think it's clever manipulation.  Essentially, if it gets built, I think you could say your training is officially sponsored by the city.  Take THAT K-Swiss

can the pipe/rail be a straight hand rail along a wall?
