    Well, obviously blocking users does not help. As a last ditch effort, I attempted to filter out some of the verbal diarrhea this way. It is obvious that I cannot shut my mouth to the boorish and childish usage of the f word. As such, I would like someone to delete my account. I looked into it and cannot find a way to do it on my own. I love this community. It has been a tremendous asset to me. I have learned so much. Thank you. I will be back in about a month. If my account is still active at th…

  • Quote from Da Wolf: “is someone in here butthurt over words?” Someone in here thinks you have the compassion of a hippo and the vocabulary of an idiot. I am not butt hurt. I have seen it all and heard it all. Someone is sick of your hooray for me and to hell with you attitude and your childish creative spelling of the f word. Grow up you self centered insensitive pig.

  • Quote from socks: “Quote from BirdBrain: “Quote from OzJacko: “Just because we can't escape it doesn't make it acceptable. I think when we witness uncaring behavior we should not just accept it. I try to make clear that it is juvenile not to think of others. Don't try to tell someone it's offensive, some of them like to think they shock others. Make them feel childish. Whatever their age that is more effective.” I have been considering the wisdom of this ever since you posted it. I work in a shi…

    Quote from jimmyjam: “So I'm going to quit my job and go for an extended LASH starting the last week in April. Any opinions as to how much notice I should give? I have a fairly high level management position. 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks???” The lead time should be proportionate to the good will between the parties. If it is great, give as much notice as possible. If it is real bad, give no notice. If it is real bad, they will cut you as soon as you give notice. Only you can know where in that scal…

    Quote from max.patch: “Quote from BirdBrain: “Quote from Rasty: “Items that need work 1) Gallery not working right yet (Support ticket made already) 2) Logo uploaded 3) Terms of Use (Needs Content) 4)” Can we add to the terms of use something that makes it so at least 4% of all posts have to have something to do with hiking? It can even be vaguely related to hiking. I might be exaggerating the issue a tad. Maybe.....appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…df2c119d30d79cbefb41577fa” half the posts here ar…

    Quote from OzJacko: “I would think the weight per square inch ratio of 3 points of contact and the weight per square inch ratio of say 20 points of contact might actually make it less stable. Leave it with me. I am designing a test in my head and will report back.” What you are describing is why all of my pot stands have only 3 points of contact. Even on the truss design, I purposely made the jointed ends shorter so as to only leave 3 stress bearing points. I fiddled with stands with more points…

    That looks like the west side of Huguenot looking south in Acadia. Perspective is everything. That stretch is very mild. You have to almost lay down to get that shot to look like that. I could be wrong. But I think I have taken a picture just like that. Beautiful, rewarding views for very little effort. Acadia is full of such shots.

    Petzl E-Lite. I think that is how you spell it. Not sure it would suffice for night hiking. Works for my needs. I upgraded from my wind up light.

    Quote from Drybones: “Quote from BirdBrain: “Quote from OzJacko: “There is nothing better than the BA insulated Q Core. Lighter but not better.” Exped UL7 is better..... in my opinion.” Am I safe in assuming you have owned them both?” No. I have been expecting that reasonable query. I live close the main Llbean store. I tried them both in the store. Not a fair test. I love the valve system in the Exped. Beyond that, I relied on specifications and reviews. Currently, my pillow doubles as the pump…

    Quote from jimmyjam: “Anyone tried the new sea to summit Sleeping pads? They have a waffle like surface, inflatable.” That is a terrible idea. I would eat the thing in the middle of the night if a bear did not get it first.
