“I camped at Brushy Lake in the Sipsey this past weekend; as I pulled in to the campground I spotted a hammock slung up on site 4...no occupants present...later as I was finishing setup of my own campsite, who should return to the Hammock, but Toph, a well known TT'er and Photographer Excellant...while the posting has dwindled, proof that the hiking in and enjoyment of the outdoors has NOT.
Chris, it was a pleasant meet...hope your way is well lit in the future....;-)”
“we were at Sipsey this past weekend also”
“musta been backpackin' instead of Car Campin'..good on ya Ewker...hope the trip was enjoyable..the sun was bright and the temps were great!”
“The trip was great. So many blowdowns that had been cleared away except for the trail from the Big Tree back to 209. Looks like it was never touched.”
“toph texted me that I'd never believe who he was camping next to. Small world.”
“Yes it is John...that was me you friended on Face Book this morning....”
“Supertroll, you just outed yourself :).”
“I knew it was. Toph texted me now that he'd found out your name. I replied, "that's not it, his name is..(and used your real name." We've email before, so I already knew your name.”
“Awesome yawl, it's nice to see that we're real ppl sometimes.”
“hyway..I've introduced myself to TT'ers for years on hikes...just not on the board...to know da Troll, HIKE wit Da Troll...Yo?
Whut it Be's Bro, Whut it Be's.”
“oh, and by the way there CS...that email you sent your reply through outed you too...(wink).”
“I am not a troll lol And I was always pretty sure you weren't a real troll.
Anyone that wants to know, knows that I am Chuck Schoonover on facebook.”
“Hokey dokey we're all one big Happy Family now...or will be when we can get Stovie and Vile to kiss and sing "we are the World"...”
“I think that would be an Extinction Level Event...”
“Hyway how are ole chap?! So this very morning I'm in MickeyD's cause the drive-thru is a mile of mostly fat ppl, and I'm waiting on a cupla schytte-biscuits and I see a dude sitting and typing into his gadget thingydo, and his t-shirt reads "Rusty's Hard-Time Hollow". So I walk up and wait on him to finish, and he looks up and I say "I'm expecting there can only be one Hard-Time Hollow, so you must an AT kinda guy." He's Sherpa from the class of 2005 I think he said, who was just passing thru, and we got to talking, and he said that the ATC had their cataloged thru-hikers guide online now. So he pulls up my ugly young mug from '92!!! Then he shows me hizzelf from '05, then I knew I wadn't so ugly anymore, lol.
Anyhow, I ain't rubbin nothin in on you dear brother, you'd just mentioned a real nice fellow I know named Chuck Schoonover from the AT, and it's kinda funny how I saw this guy just this morning. Hope ur well bro.”
“Coming to this site is like going to an old house where friends or relatives use to live. After everyone moves out and the roof starts falling in, you go by and remember all the good times, but there just isn't much to hang around to look at.”
“We're still here, eh?”
“There are still some of us who drive by from time to time.”
“It's not dead, just sleeping.”
“Sorry, Chili, but I've been a little busy lately. I'm still waiting for Obama care to trinkle down to me. What, with 6 doctors in Melbourne and a large team of them up at the Univ. of Florida Hospital, CVS which sucks, insurance companies, auto problems, bill colectors, computer problems etc., I find more than enough to do every day. There are plenty of arguments. I found a temporary way to deal with it. I told everyone that I was going out of town for the rest of the year and then stayed home!
May God have mercy on the old!
Happy New Year.”
“I still haunt this place, but not near as much as I used to.”
“chili is alive”
“is this thing on?”
“I still check every day when around.”
“I use TT as a notebook. Example; Call GW and find where we invade next?”
“I check in almost every day.”
“I'm lurking... But posting seems to be senseless... Especially since last week, it's even deader then usual. :((((((”
“There have been recent weeks with lots of activity, too. It ain't all dead.”
“Play it again, Sam.”
“I like a place away from FB. We need to spruce it up a bit”
“I'm here...alone sometimes....lol....”
“bring out your dead
bring out your dead
bring out your dead
bring out your dead
bring out your dead”
“Drivin' that train high on .............”
“oh, that's right... it's almost Halloween. :))))”
“Yo bear! From the library.”
“Sugar magnolia, blossoms blooming, heads all empty and I don't care,
Saw my baby down by the river, knew she'd have to come up soon for air.”
“You gave all you had, why you want to give more”
“Well, she can dance a cajun rhythm, jump like a willys in four wheel drive. She's a summer love for spring, fall and winter. She can make happy any man alive.”
“still alive !!!!”
Don't go to Wisconsin
“Wolf hunting season is open in Wisconsin. DNR wants to cull 116 wolves-hate that to be you. :-)”
“Yes, TT'ers are not dead - they just smell that way after being out on the trail for a couple weeks.”
“Others just smell that way all the time.”
“Lol....I wonder who all got booted from here!!!!
There should be a list!”
“I got booted, but then they asked me back 'cause I'm so vital to the board!
All you commoners, you gotta toe the line, but ME? I get special considerations due to my age and senility!.....
“A little scary yesterday when I checked in and there were only 3 active threads.”
“Personally, I did NOT get booted... have been here all along, but inconspicuous... when I see something I want to respond to, you'll see me... again... kimosabe”
