“besides PepsisFormosa. We already got his vote.”
““lol, HPD thinks going for a walk is hiking and calls himself a hiker. Do you also do karate kicks in your garage and call yourself a kung fu master?”
“your attention whoring has really gotten bad since the commie health bill passed. It's awful sad that someone who doesn't even backpack has to leech attention on a backpacking message board to feel like a big man”
“It's awful sad that someone who doesn't even backpack
^^ see. He thinks he's tough because he backpacks. LMAO!!”
“I don't even backpack?
That's like saying "you don't even eat potato chips."”
“yeah, if this were a potato chip message board”
“It's a backpacking message board?
Are you sure?
Do you stick to backpacking topics? I seem to remember you trolling the last few weeks.”
“New home sales fell 2.2 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual sales pace of 308,000”
“^^ see. He thinks hes tough because he backpacks. LMAO!!”
Do NOT provoke gingers man. They are soulless.

“Confession time: I used to hike, and the club foot never deterred me. But then I got addicted to Cheetos and haven't gotten off the couch since. True story.”

“Dis HPD be a clown. No wondr no one bakpak wid him. he hab runed TT. Him and de XL fool. 2 loser mons bigtim.”
“Ha ha ha ha ha!!!
You put de lime wid de coconut?”
“yeah, if this were a potato chip message board”
That made me LOL
But seriously...where do I sign up for that board? :D”
“sarge probably knows. I bet he's on that board too, and crapping all over every thread there as well.”
“Poor Pepsis never figured out that I only crap on peoples parades who crap on mine first. collateral damage is on you”
“you crap on every thread on this board (EXCEPT the backpacking threads, which you conspiciously avoid for reasons that are now clear). Climb down off your fukking cross, poor mistreated sa(r)ge”
“I only crap on peoples parades who crap on mine first
i think jesus said that once. or gandhi”
“you guys crack me up how you think you should have free reign of this place to crap on everyone else's parade who you disagree with, but when they crap right back you act all offended like they were out of line
“Since it's just the two of you guys fighting, and no one else cares....can you guys e-mail or sext each other.
Maybe drive up to Maine and get a cabin with a champagne glass shaped hot tub.”
“I don't think, I know I'm tough.
But not as tough as Chuck Norris.
Chuck Norris is so tough he can roundhouse kick a fart back into his ass.”
“I only crap on peoples parades who crap on mine first. collateral damage is on you”
Problem is everyone's idea of starting it is different - end result a lot of sheisse splattered bystanders (pardon my German).
To answer the question. I confess that when I do a 20+ mile day at my age with a full backpack in Vermont, Maine of New Hampshire - I start thinking I'm tough. Usually I am humbled or humiliated soon after.”
“the other problem is I don't care what other people's ideas of starting it is
I know when somebody is trying to crap on my parade. That's good enough for me. I don't need to take a vote. If other people miss it, well, sorry for their luck.
I don't think most people on here take on challenging backpacking expeditions, although there are certainly a fare share that absolutely do.”
“I think I am tough cause I backpack.
I am a woman that goes out alone during the winter or any other time.
I kick @ss”
“and 3/24 ended a period of civilness and quiet times of TT. How bad does this period get?
Does it rival the Troll wars of 97?
The flames of 2004?
Ohiohiker, marvin garndens, maple and opie?
what about the Tilt/Stovie battle of wits *lol*
grab your popcorn, unless these gents can act their age we are off to the races, and there is no real latta outdoors this time...lol”
“mapleleaf, I LOL'd! That was funny. Thanks for playing along w a sense of HUMOR!”
“I don't think I'm tough because I hike, but people who live around me and work with me think I am because I do it without a gun.
Well actually they think I'm crazy, but crazy=tough.......right?”
“- crazy + wild = bill”
“I don't think I am tough because I backpack. But to backpack, one has to be somewhat tough. There have been plenty friggin days I would ask myself wtf I was doing out there. Then when the trip was over, I couldn't wait for the next one.”
“It's walking and sleeping in the woods not fighting in the octagon.”
“Nigal is obviously doing it wrong. Nothing says backpacking like a battle royal by fire light at the end of a day hiking.”
“Its sure as hell not like staying at the Holiday Inn. But, nigals post brings up a good point
“I'm gunning to get back into the high school shop next fall. Thought I'd check-in at TT on Thursdays to hone that rusty feel for adolescent behavior. You kids are doing great!”
“me like stinky butts, bol!!”
Even girls backpack. Some while wearing makeup.
It's cute that some think it makes them "tough".”
“Tough is when you carry two guns in a holsters and a knife in your teeth while you hike, that's Reagan tough. LMAO”
“i'm very tough. LOL!”
“I hike because I'm tough....
PS. lol at Zac
Spindle, you are as tough as they come!”
“Not all hikers are tough.
I think I'm tough because I hike tough.”
“This could become a backpacking thread.”
“If carrying 60 pounds for miles and miles is "tough" then the very definition needs changed cause that ain't tough, that's stupid. You packed too much stuff.”
“Spindle, you are as tough as they come!” BackSlacker
That has nothing to do with hiking. I'm a Mom.
Hey!! How was your winter? Ready to hike?
And for the record... PA hikers are way tougher than anyone else.”
“speaking of 60 pounds and PA hikers, a guy at my outfitter told me he doesn't put any thought into packing light - he considers it "training".
Training for what? Not sure. Walking on Venus?”
“moms are tough!”
“Sounds like Spindle is gonna break me in the cats”
“The only time I've had a 60# pack was cuz I was a dad. But that wasn't tough hiking. Tough hiking is long distances and big elevations covered quickly for the shear extasy of being in God's beautiful outdoors.”
