“Sounds like someone sent the guy ugly and antagonistic emails. He didn't like it, so he won't continue to post here. There you go.”
“" I would remove the pocket IN the hip belt and replace it with a slightly larger pocket (about as big as a bag of gorp or a average to small camera) ON the hip belt that sits over the top of the stabilizer straps........."
Maybe made out of mesh as well?
I like the idea of having a pocket on the belt.”
“I meant exactly what I posted. He got enough hate mail from people who indicated that they were tter's that he decided we weren't worth the aggravation.
I don't find it strange at all given the knee-jerk tendencies of many otherwise decent people here.”
“Speaking of knee-jerk - without knowing IF they were truely TTer's I'm going to hold off until I see some proof.
There are a bunch of works of art out there that would love to bash TT.
Maybe a reach, but post some trail names/or real ones and let us us for ourselves.”
“Q, that's always a possibility.
Enough drama, I've got a hike to finish getting ready for.”
“Sorry I'm late. What the heck is an "inertia meal"?
Are you going to stone me now?”
“Right on, HPM. Be safe and have fun!
When my boys get older, I hope to have them in scouts.
“Good review of the pack HMP he should get some good ideas from that. If you read this adventuremaster good luck with your pack.
It is really ashame that some people on this board have to be such A-holes and wannabes. This new member bashing has got to stop. Have you not notice how many people just don't post much anymore? If we want this site to stay around we have to be friendlier to newcomers.”
“I agree about the new member bashing. Lt. I thought there were some pretty harsh posts when AM first posted. (yet no different than when others first post)
"hate mail" though, is a pretty strong accusation.”
“Yeah the "hate mail" is pretty strong and I truly hope that it wasn't from this board, but that remains to be seen. If it is true somepeople really went overboard.
I know that the new member bashing happens, I don't take part in it and I don't agree with it.
Backpacking is a sport that I love and I think it is great to have new people discover it. When I wanted to get back into backpacking I came to this board for information and for people to go backpacking with. If I had not hooked up with some great people from here I would not be backpacking as much as I do. In fact I probably would still be car camping and dayhiking.
I am glad that I did not have to go through the abuse that new posters get now.”
