“Violin wasn't on that hike. He couldn't even pass the non-campfire test (Actually, he might have passed it had he looked through Pennsy's pictures a little more closely. But then he might not have been able to superimpose his mug on the shot.).”
“lyra, what do you mean this is a joke, there is no joke here, excpet pennsy's backpacking skills.”
“i read somewhere that the first and third post of threads have hidden msg's.”
“You like that "deign" word, Lyra? Well you know I was just teaching my daughters that "icy disdain voice" that Geobeet is so fond of, and deign is this week's word.
LOL, I was wondering what MSilver would think of all this.”
“Opie, the only thing hidden here is my unquenchable desire to urinate in Pennsy's watersource at home, build a 50,000 sq. ft. home on richb's property, and hire somebody to shoot a documentary on the infallible hiking skills of Sirpete.
There, it's out in the open now.”
“Just the first post. Seriously! Get out your decoder rings!!!!”
“The documentary will be titled - "SirPete, Knight of the Whites"”
“LMAO!!! you were teaching your daughters how to speak with icy disdain? that's awesome!
okay, okay, it's not a joke! i'll never hike with any of you freaks.
“Hey Buddha...don't you know there ARE no 2000 foot descents on the AFT? Get your facts straight next time you want to slander my buds.”
“Code, what are you going to read the thread backwards or somethings, hoping to somehow spell "devil" in the process? (6) I'd check coyoteraven posts if you are interested in that stuff. (6)
Now, I must resume listening to "Anotherone Bites the Dust". (6)”
“Pennsy, I've told you not to whiz in springs. Whiz on their tent, whiz in their shoe, whiz in their ear, but don't whiz in the spring.
RichB, from now on please observe the proper setback requirements in placing your tent. You may not be aware of it, but the wilderness is subject to multiple zoning codes. You must get a zoning variance to place your tent closer than 50 feet from somebody else's tent. Did you have a zoning permit? I don't think so.
SirPete, who let you into the same world as Buddha Bear? You should be forever banished from backpacking.
Buddha, you said last night you were leaving. What the he11 are you still doing here?
I take the opposite approach from Sassafras. They're all lying!”
“I KNOW Fritz, that's because we were hiking a snowmobile trail that wasn't on the AFT, ask newgirl, she was there.”
“violin - Now I understand your claim that you do not post on weekends. That's the time you devote to posting under other names.
'I barely know how to turn on my computer' Wow! Where are my boots and shovel? It is really getting thick in here!”
“I'm back because I missed YOU Geobeet.”
“They prolly cooked it all up at a Hooters in Pittsburgh.”
“Cool! How'd you get the letters to change colors, nowslimmer?”
and now I must shovel snow!”
“Are ya sure it's snow you're shoveling?”
“Is it yellow?”
“yes and pennys made it yellow!”
“He did? Boy that guy sure gets around. We need to start kicking him again. Ohhhh Twiiiggeater?”
“Cool! How'd you get the letters to change colors, nowslimmer?"
Just followed the teachings of someone who hardly knows how to turn on his computer. (Tried for a color that would match the subject, but I was too lazy to look up the code he used for a better brown.)”
“Lyndy, et al,
Almost at the last minute I decided to head out there as per my original plan to day hike and possibly meet those guys somewhere on the trail ...the latter didn't happen, but I had a nice time solo hiking with my Sparky along some sections of the AFT and various side trails, talking with hunters, and driving along the state forest roads, checking the area out. Saw lots of deer, a turkey (flying), grouse, a Red Tail hawk close up, and a porcupine family (close up) at Wolf Rocks.
I saw Rich's van and a brown car with Ohio plates in the parking lot at Moshannon State Park; and Pennsy's truck parked on Route 504 at their starting point. I almost hiked down that same steep decline Buddha Bear mentions. On Sat, morning, I noticed that the car with Ohio plates was gone, and Rich's van still there. Later I saw Pennsy's truck still at the Route 504 crossing. One thing's for sure... the car from Ohio left sometime of Saturday.
On Fri afternoon and Sat morning I looked for those rascals along the trail near the Park and south of the airport ...saw bootprints and trekking pole marks near the Moss-Hanna trail, but no backpackers.”
“Is THAT Geobeet in the photo, fourth from left?
The guy with the 'leven-foot sack?
That group is seriouly short on women!
What kind of car had Ohio plates?”
“always said if it seams too good to be true it probably is and that if somethin stinks theres probably a skunk nearby.
it seams like either one side is lieing or both sides are lying. so why all this lying?
and is it me or have others read many times in other threads how this buddah bear says how big he is and how he can kick everybodys ass. its those kind of peoplke who think theyre more tough than they really are. talk is cheap id bet my last joint that his ego is much bigger than his balls”
“I thought pot heads were non-confrontational.”
“He's a ten-foot-tall, two-ton sumbich.......or so the story goes.”
“Maybe what 420 really wanted to say was something like,
"I'll bet my last ball that his joint is bigger than mine."”
“Code Opie? Sass?
Code... yeah right. If da first post on this thread is in code, then so is my first post on the thread (#145).”
I'm pretty sure it was a Chevy. I think it had four doors. And it was light brown. Definitely had Ohio plates. Definitely was there on Friday afternoon. Definitely was gone by around noon on Saturday.”
“i was just stating an observation and adding what ive found to be the case with people who think they can kick everyones ass. no confrontation threr, maybe the truth hurts but theres no need to get angry over it”
“We don't care what you pot smokers think.”
“whos supposed to care what you think SanTartex
and what do you mean "we", who else are you speaking for”
“yep...take the first letter of each...omph! get yer hands off my mouphf! OKAY! I won't tell...geez!”
“Still confused #420?
Take a nap and re-read the thread.”
“did you know I was there too?”
“Hmmm, Chevy....Ohio plates......look out!”
“I agree w/ Q, Sass, BB... this poisonivy person is waaayyy to similar to our coyote. That's the first thing I thought when I read the post.
M Silver's description sounds just like the bear's car. Light brown/tan Chevy Malibu. (Notice he stayed at the "malibu inn"). It's his, alright.”
“OK, after much reading and re-reading of Buddha Bear's initial missive, I have fired up my own personal Enigma machine to decode what really happened this weekend. Hopefully this will put an end to all the arguing and back-biting. Quotes from BB's first post are in italics, my Enigma's translation is in regular case.
Near 8:30, Pennsyhiker, RichB and SirPete decide to show up. We hit the trail, with SirPete balbbering away about how he thought the Scarlett letter thread was BS on my part.
Notice what appears to be a misspelling of the word "blabbering". In actuality, the misspelled word is "ballbearing." Apparently someone had spread a layer of ballbearings on the trail near the trailhead.
Everybody was on edge, and the hike didn't start well.
"edge" should be capitalized, since they were apparently snorting Edge shaving gel.
Like .5 miles into the hike
The shaving gel is beginning to affect BB at this point, as he has lapsed into Valspeak.
Pennsy, totally ignoring a double balze, led us on a 2,000 feet downhill, when we should have been hiking a ridgeline. Little did we know, we were heading due east, instead of west, so finally RichB and I told him we were backtracking, so we wouldn't be lost.
Pennsy stepped on two of the ballbearings (balze), slipped and fell 2,000 feet downhill from the ridgeline. At this point, their brains are so saturated in Edge that they cannot tell anymore which way they are headed, but BB and RichB managed to step back quickly enough such that they didn't slip and fall.
When we told Pennsy this, he copped an attitude, and said something like "you go ahead and lead then." And I did.
BB probably shouldn't have rubbed in the fact that he and RichB managed to avoid slipping on the ballbearings. At this point, Pennsy Hiker is down at the bottom of the 2,000 foot downhill, and for all I know, still is.
Then, we set up our tents, with RichB, strangely setting up his tent 2 ft. from mine, with spaces all over a huge pine thicket.
The strange part isn't that RichB set up his tent so close to BB's, but the manner in which RichB set it up, that is, "with spaces all over a huge pine thicket". Apparently RichB is even more susceptible to the effects of huffing Edge shaving gel than BB is.
Heck, I was at wits end, and getting really annoyed.
Reference to the computer game "Adventure". It can be very annoying, getting out of Witt's End. Tunnels lead off in *every* direction.
Everybody on the trip rubbed me, and were rubbing themselves the wrong way.
This is a family board, so I won't print what the Enigma machine translated. I didn't realize there was a "wrong" way to do that though.
When camp was finally set up, Pennsy decided to take a piss in the natural spring. Of course I asked him WTF he was doing, and that it was a natural spring, our water source, he was urinating in.
BB is hallucinating now. Pennsy's still at the bottom of the 2,000 foot downhill.
Right then, SirPete, was like,
do you think you're Mr. LNT or something?
Actually, SirPete asked, "Do you think they're all empty, or something?" referring to the cans of Edge gel they brought along.
Sitting by the fire, I decided to offer Pennsy some wine, as a peace offering. Jokingly, I said try not to drink it all, I want some for tommorrow night as well. Oh, about an hour later, 36 oz.s were gone, and I didn't even get a glass.
Another hallucination. In actuality, BB opened the bag of wine, handed it to a non-existent Pennsy Hiker, and the bag spilled out onto the ground.
Everyone, including RichB, seemed pissed. Surreal is the only word I have for this.
BB is using the British meaning of "pissed", i. e. "drunk". Apparently Edge gel is a pretty good high.
Years seemed to pass as the night went on,
Edge gel must cause time expansion, similar to the effects of marijuana.
I was ready for bed. On about 9:00, I hit the sack, tripping over Rich's addition on to my tent, and cursing the entire trip.
After snorting nine cans of Edge gel, it's understandable that BB would have problems with walking. That many can cause a "bad trip", no doubt this is what BB was cursing.
Morning arrived, and I hightailed it out of there before anyone woke up.
Embarrassed by having overindulged the Edge gel, BB leaves so as not to have to endure the taunts of his fellow trippees.
Once I arrived near my car, I thought about giving the whole thing another chance, and wondered if I was overreacting to everything.
Upon getting back to his car, BB found another bag full of cans of Edge gel, and considered taking them back to the campsite and snorting them.
Hell no, I thought. Alas, I trekked to my Malibu, and put my bag in the car.
But he decided not to.
Having stated all the above, you guys can KMA, hiking with you was a true displeasure.
"KMA" actually stands for "Keep Moving on Ascent", a climber's acronym. BB's displeasure is mostly stated here because he's finally realized they left Pennsy at the bottom of the 2,000 foot downhill. Poor guy.
Adios, hope you're having fun tonight.
When's the next party?
Just remember, this post is all in fun...”
“LMAO @ bit!!!”
“LMAO2 @ bit!”
“damn, i need to get me some Edge shaving cream!”
“Wow! I was on edge all the way through that one.”
“Who makes Edge? I expect sales to be unusually strong this quarter.”
“Bristol Myers Squib General Foods Phillip Morris Merck Proctor & Gamble Kraft 3M”
Don't delay, get some today!
“LMAO3 @ bit!!! You're invited to the next hike! Guess who isn't?
Backing up to Violin being in our group picture in NJ.... I have to increase my meds because I'm the one who took that shot. How'd I miss him??”
“heck I was THERE and I missed him”
