“If it weren't for all the Deam Wilderness trip postings on the archives, I would point out some of my trips (sorry, no TRs) to prove you GSPs (I can use clever acronyms also Qx2)wrong. Now just to make this fun, I'll throw out some names of the fortunate TTers that have been on my trips:
Navi, Matt, Phil, Hodge, Pantscandy, Poolguy, Wingding, Wannabp and Jerry.
Go to town slackers! Lets see if any of you pots can call this kettle black. Don't hate the playa, hate the game. If you puds can't plan a trip, just stay on the short bus and just humm to yourself through life.
Buddha Bear, you rat bastard, is that you?”
“I named that tune in four posts.”
“so Tyler and I are hiking back in the day on day 4 of a TT posted trip(only us 2 showed) and we see a bear coming at us from 100 yards off, he immediately takes off his pack, takes out some running shoes from the bottom of his pack and I say to him you cant out run a bear. He replies, I dont have to, all I have to do is out run you......never saw him again”
“OK, so you were on Sierrapalooza II. But from your posts on this thread I'd like to buy my introduction back.
Or in other words you are one of the reasons the Sierrapaloozas are no longer open to the public.”
“Tyler Durden, "Manhood camper"
Is that you?”
“The old bear won't last much longer, but can growl when poked...”
“No, and no, but I do hear footsets outside my door.”
“I wonder what ever happened to Bison?”
“This slacker is going backpacking. See you all next week sometime!”
“I'm going to post a trip justa pi$$ yazall off.”
“Well, I know why there aren't a lot of trips posted. I tried and was told I was trying to access a private trip and should enter the correct password.
BTW, is anyone up for a hike from Long Lake to Lake Placid on the Northville-Placid Trail? Some time in June or July.
I'll take the shuttle from Placid trailhead after spending the night at the Alpine Club of Canada house in Keene, NY to Long Lake trailhead. If someone wants to meet me in Long Lake I'll drive you back to your car.”
“Gremlin, I may be in the Montreal and Moncton, New Brunswick area soon. I'd like to head off into the woods if I get time between work.”
“Cool. Keep in touch; my e-mail is in my profile. Have you been to Montreal before?”
“Gremlin, there's now four trips posted, so I guess you ever drunk when you posted. Which I'm sure goes with the territory on this site. Y'all worthless and weak!!”
“so I guess you ever drunk when you posted.
kinda like you now?”
“Nah, doesn't sound like him.”
“A couple of things:
1. Not Sarge, and the quote was from Animal House.
2. I'm sure TxWoodswoman is you're real name (or is it Ms. Hypocrite?). If so, your either a loser for changing your name, or your parents are losers for picking it.
3. I love Cheetos.
4. Again, I didn't start this rant just to sh*t on everyone's little gab fest here, I honestly check in now and then to see if any trips in my area have been posted. Sure there are private trips, and sure peeps are meeting up through FB, Myspace, Meetups.com, but the last time I looked this site was called TheBackpacker.
As far as comments on why private trips are not an option for all, that's also a load. In reality, there are cliques here just like in high school: you get invited to the party if you're cool! That's it in it's pathetic reality.”
“LOL!! I LIKE THAT!! THAT'S FUNNY!
Mapleleaf, you get it.”
“Me: Hey, I'll be away from my computer for a couple days for work.
Me: Nevermind. Just bicker among yourselves until Wednesday. Better yet, plan and post a trip.”
“Tyler: Yadda, yadda, yadda.
Me: Who gives a #&%!$ anyway?”
“Chili: Who gives a #&%!$ anyway?
“you fools---> look at the trip page Crazy Mike posted a trip so sign up if you have enough balls! :P”
--------------------------------------------------------------everyone else on trailtalk”
“That's not nice. And anyway violence begets violence.”
“Tyler Durden maybe you should put up or shut up. :)”
“ah, a "the good ol' days troll thread" always a refreshing sight. Some things never change.
I lead trips regularly, they're posted here: http://www.nols.edu/courses/”
“Hey! SC How are ya?! I saw the pics of your pup, good lookin dog. Forest is still goin strong, though I haven't taken him backpacking in ages, he's good for 100 some holes on the disc golf course.
The above link should have directed to: http://www.nols.edu/courses/locations/rockymtn/windriverwilderness.shtml
Take note of the pic in the upper right, that's mine :D”
