Posted on 07/10/2009 12:50:09 PM PDT by EveningStar

The biggest event of the year in Laguna Niguel, Calif., is coming up on Saturday, but Mayor Robert Ming has a message for those planning to attend: Keep your pants on.

For 30 years, the town has played host to an affair dubbed "Moon Over Amtrak." Crowds line Camino Capistrano, a road that runs along the railroad tracks, and pass the day dropping their trousers every time a train rolls by...

They gather across the street from the Mugs Away Saloon. I had a feeling alcohol was involved. :-))

In other threads it is being reported that there are some high-quality 40 year old tapes of this event.

I used to ride that train (from LA to SD) but I never saw any moons. Maybe it was the time of year (or the phase of the moon?)

Show a little respect. These people are putting their asses on the line when the politicians in Sacramento won’t. (Not that I really want to see that side of Karen Bass.)

Wait a minute. I just went to their site... WOMEN are doing it too.

Mayor, this is an outrageous violation of their constitutional right to ..uh...well... okay... be FREE, oh, and free speech..... a B/A is an expression, a way of communication it says something very heartfelt to the viewer!

What people to on the privacy of railroad tracks is their personal business.

In other news: Hairy male gay butts can be seen walking the streets of San Francisco on a daily basis.

There is a little hippie town in Alaska called “Ferry”. Because of a past issue with the Alaska railroad, every 4th of July they moon the Alaska RR trains. My supervisor was on it with his 2 young daughters and from his pictures they were flashing a whole lot more than butts. we are talking old nasty hippie boobs here. I told him I would have been PO’d if my kids had to watch that crap. He definately was. Bunch of friggin’ retards.

Hey, Evening Star! If I recall correctly, you're there in OC too, no?

Is this event where you acquired your screenname?

Enquiring minds want to know. ;-)
