– Worst Buildering Experiences –

2. Getting rolled on by the exact same policeman, same location, three days later.

3. Obtaining permission to climb the Chambers Street overpass wall, next to the railroad changing yard, then being discovered by a police man and woman, neither of which believed that we had permission from the yard manager.

4. Co-writing, then having to scrap, a “Eugene’s Guide to Buildering”, 2005, because I couldn’t get in any more trouble with the police if I wanted to keep my teaching job at a high school.
