“WHO IS GOING? Gabby made me post this.”
“LMBO.... Did NOT!”
“I'm going but only cause Trubrit invited me.”
“See you guys in '13!”
“Too far.... Again
“Wife and I will be there.”
“lol @ stomper! We will be there. Can't wait to see everyone again.”
“Well even tho the Dairy Host Festival is the same weekend this year....I gotta go with TD!”
“We plan on dropping in again. It was a lot of fun last year.”
“ME ME ME!!!!”
“I might make it. Depends on whether Sunni takes off before I can get my gear in the Jeep.”
“Hamhocker and I will try to make it for the whole thing this yr”
“Wooooo hooooooo !!!!”
“I'm in.... (of course I said that last year too..)
“So I see that Trubrit created a Trail Talk event on FB and only invited his friends. Nice.
Since when do any of us need an invitation to Trail Daze?

“did you make it to Linville CD?
wrt Trail Daze - whatever”
“No, we didn't make it. On Friday we went snow tubing in Boone and hoped to stop by Saturday to say hi to the TT'rs. But due to the heavy rains, we decided to head straight back to Raleigh.
Did you make it to SoRuck?”
“yes - a good time amongst some hiker trash”
“Cd...I'm not on his friend list...but I signed up for it ...
Not sure how that worked....”
“Lol...somewhere along the way he unfriended me..lol....probably my ramblings and useless posts got to him...lol....he's not the first...I'm sure he's not the last!”
“You're still at the top of my list.”
“Thanks Nowslimmer! ...
I expect to see you at Trail Daze!
I don't think he meant it to be a private thing...
I'm sure he posted it on the TT assuming it would be for all....he would have had to change the settings from friends to all.... Facebook is funny sometimes....and even when I have changed some of the settings, they change back again...”
“He made it a public event, and invited all his FB "friends". I don't care that he didn't "invite" me personally. What bothers me is that the whole world is now invited to stay at the TT'r site. Here on TT, the trip would be "public" too, but generally only us locals pay attention to the trips page.”
“CD... You can hang with the rest of us non-invited tt'ers.. I have him on my facebook ingore list so I dont see anything he posts.. It was kind of cool watching sticks (I think it was sticks) talk to himself on FB.. couldn't figure out what was going on until I relaized he was conversing with TB...
Gem will rope off a section for those of us who have fallen out of favor... :)
“Ok, thanks 32! I am really glad you are going this year. I hope they have some interesting presentations.”
“LOL @ 32oz. He never did understand what I was saying so I finally gave up and deleted my posts.”
“LOL @ 32. I ignored him to and had the same problem. I couldn't figure out what people were talking about or thought that one of the admins was cleaning up the page and removing posts.”
“PS..Gem could never fall out of favor with me.”
I was wondering where thet went... Couldn't find them but I thought that it was you..
“can i camp with you all?// sounds like you are planning on a new camp site . i have been going there and cleaning our spot the weekend be 4 trail days and roping off our site . if you all are not planning on camping with me please let me know so i dont waste my time, I love cooking for tt and dont want to get there with food and my set up and you all are camping some place else..

“I will be camping with JB and the rest of the TT'rs! Can't wait to see you guys. All of us appreciate your hard work, JB.
TB changed the FB event posting so hopefully there will still be room for everyone at the campsite.”
“what CD said... of course we'll camp with you JB... Can't wait. However...about me roping things off...uhm...not gonna happen. JB...you help, right?”
“JB's site is were it's at.”
“opsy. guess there is no official 2012 TD FB page.

“ill be at the same spot as last yr......”
“they have presentations at TD?”
“We will gladly camp with you.. although you may need to clear that with someone else.. :)
“JB TruBrit is advertising the same spot TT used last year. I am guessing he knows this is TTs spot and he is just trying to get the word out on Facebook since there are some who cant post here. Hes a helpful guy like that ya know;)

“Sunni, I think TB is the only one who is banned from here who also goes to Trail Days. I can't think of anyone else.
He originally posted the trip on FB Trail Talk group page, deleted that one (or it was deleted for him), and then he reposted the trip as a general FB event. Unfortunately, when he did that, he made the trip a public event, thereby inviting the whole FB world to join us at the TT campsite. He also sent an invitation to all of his FB friends. He says now that he made a mistake and thankfully revised the trip to invite-only.”
“Since when has anyone needed an "invite" to Trail Days?
Y'all are making a mountain out of a molehill.”
“CD he never posted it on the FB page as an event of that page, it was and still is his event that has been shared on that page. Now it has become even more privileged because it is private.
The trip has always been posted on this board as an open trip with no one saying anything more than BE THERE. IMO that is how it should have been done on the FB page then allow everyone to add their 2 cents. This all too late now because it is FUBARed over there.
There is no I in team...

“Excellent use of the word FUBAR. You don't see it in sentences very often.”
“I can't wait for Trail Days...
I hope I can make it...we have a grandbaby due the end of April...I may be coming in from Ohio...with no gear :0”
“Sticks, my concern was that there was a public open invitation to all of FB for anyone to camp at our campsite. The invitation is open here too, but nobody pays attention to that. Of course anyone can camp there; it's not ours and we have no right to keep anyone out and should not keep anyone out. In fact, we have often have non TT'rs camp there which I think is great.
But it would have been a shame for say 100 people to "sign up" on FB and show up at our spot and expect to have a campsite, food and drink, as advertised. Chances are there would not have been enough room for everyone.
Not sure what happened on FB. Last I looked we were all having a fun conversation.”
“I want to thank Trubrit for trying to rectify the issue by making the trip invite-only. And I apologize for a mess that I obviously started. That wasn't my intention. Sometimes tone and intention can be misconstrued on the internet. Once he made the change, I figured that was the end of the story. Not sure what happened after that.”
Not sure what happened after that?
“I would say it was the Drama Queens having fun trash talking on Trubrit since he can't respond here, Creeky.”
“Im just trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. I dont think he means any harm, he is just a very helpful kind of guy and frankly facebook is wack..
ps - our Super Bowl party IS open to all..so if any of you have not seen the invite over on fb and are in the area and wanna stop by, we will have food and stuff, BYOB...anytime after 4pm on Feb 5th..SEE YA!”
“Mountains out of molehills is what we do best...”
