for those that know the story....
“yes that's right it's me.....
I may have found it...”
“i don't know the story. :-(”
“Are we talking about an eating utensil or a sleeping position?”
I have been in search of the perfect backpacking spoon. while at REI yesterday I found one that, if it isn't,it's a good runner up. I will have to test and report back.”
“how about a hint - metal or plastic?”
“Prolly funky polycarbonate.”
The Perfect Spoon
“a sequel to The Perfect Storm?”
“Sounds like a good porno.”
Plastic, Wood, Metal?
“knowing SirPete he probably got wood....”
“And I bet it's very colorful.”
“Thank freakin God!!!!! It's about time you found it. I don't think I could live through another trip listening to your quest.
So, post a pic of the thing already.”
“OK SIrpete the suspense is killling us what kind of spoon did you get? I saw one at the Brentwood store 2 weeks ago. It was a Titanium Spork by Snow Peak. 10 or 12 bucks for a spork, at least it had a place in the handle to tie on a string so you wouldn't lose it.”
“I bet it's short and has big bushy hair on the handle.
I hope you bought spares. If it is like it's owner, it's sure to get itself lost on the way to the trailhead.”
“HAHA Adv said I got woood............
Nope it is a blue plastic about 1.5 times larger than a table spoon, in actual spoon size and in length. I haven't mesured it up against a food bag yet so see if I can eat from it without getting sh#t all over my hands (god I hate that) but I have faith. I also bought a matching bowl. I'll be able to use that on the Pemi loop hike when I mooch food from everyone there. yep spoon and bowl, that's all I'm gunna need.
Oh yeah I got 2 just in case it is the right one. I don't wanna have to go through that search again.”
“Birch trashed me once cause I said something good about MRE's once.
A few months later we did our first hike together and he forgot his spoon. I Gladly gave him a MRE spoon to use for the trip.
“I thought this had something to do with The Tick for Sure.”
Would you and your spoons please get a room!
Congratulations on finding the perfect utensil and having such passion for it!
Oh, Little Wooden Boy!!!”
“Now Fork off!”
“Man I thought that he was joking about the perfect spoon! I didn't realize that it was such an obsession.”
“Apparently you've never hiked with him yet.”
need I say more?”
“What's up bro. we were just talking about you.”
“I used to like the kevlar (plastic) spoon & fork, but now for the past year I've used the titanium spork. (tined spoon)”
“Hey SirPete - That's great news! I'm happy you may have found the spoon of your dreams. Tho, the one you had at FYAO was pretty decent!!”
“I like my Snow Peak Spork!
“I just use my fingers. A raccoon made off with my spork last trip.”
“The one that sniffed your face?
“Congratulations Sir Pete! It's a good thing to finally find something you've longed for so long. I bet you had at least a half dozen people dotted all over the country looking for a spoon for you.”
Ba Da Boom
“Buddha Bear's perfect spoon would be...
“Year but if you got close to Reese you would be so awed...
would be the word of the day LOL”
“Sporks are for dorks!
I just can't see eatin' my miso soup with a spork!”
“The perfect spoon would be me and Reese Witherspoon!”
“I must admit to having a bit of a cutlery passion, I think the spork came close to satisfying the passion, but I'm ever vigilant for that one all time eating implement.”
“Where the heck is lyra?
She would have a fit over this thread. ;)”
isnt that what the Tick used to yell?”
“Next thing you know, Pennsy will post a thread named "The Perfect Watter Source Urination"
I'm glad you finally found what you were looking for Pete - ya bastard.”
“but I missplaced it and had to go back to the old lexan set that I found in the rockies...I'm always lucky in finding things in the rockies, but then I enevitably loose other things when go canoeing. oh, the humanity!!!!”
“How perfect does a spoon have to be?”
“wow...finally, after trying (and buying) eleventy million spoons, he finally found one.
On one hand, we can be relieved that we will no longer have to listen to Pete pining away at every meal, for the "perfect" utensil, whilest clutching an imperfect one with his food covered fingers...but on the other hand, will we now have to endure his raving lunacy, singing praises to his newfound love?
I mean, my gawwwd man, it is a SPOON. People have real problems in the world...
love ya. mean it.”
Uneasily, I asked SirPete about his Shark Attack and he told me the whole story...poor guy.”
“oooh, he told you? You know he reeeally doesn't like to talk about it.
I'm suprised he didn't beat you with a wooden spoon just for mentioning it...
How many times did you have to melt together to repair your "unperfect spoon"?”
“to many to count. LOL@ you 2”
“I once used a bent piece of wire and some Aluminum foil when I forgot my spoon.
At the time it was the perfect spoon.”
“I bet it was!”
“it can serve as a weapon too...poke a bear in the eyes and then run away.”
hey sir pete...
“I wish I could hike with you someday. this way I could see your perfect spoon and listen to your mantra and then laugh myself into a spasm of laughter and sneezing and roll around the ground holding my stomach, cause I'd be laughing so hard....your funny...”
