“Either my computer is all screwed up (although it seems to work fine here)...... or.... the OTHER SITE is all messed up today. I'm getting "an error occurred while processing this directive" there.
Hmmm.. I wonder... WILL THEY ALL COME OVER HERE AND RAISE CHAOS???! Much like so many here seem to do when this site goes down?? lol”
“I see the forums come up OK. But the main page took like half an hour to come up!”
“There is another site?”
who knew, huh?
Well they are giving away a National Parks Pass a day. Read that in Backpacker mag. So I was trying to sign up. When I got to that specific page, I got an error, and "page not found." lol”
“They tried to rope ya in?”
“Ohhhhhhh, you make me feel so cheap and used!!
“National Parks Pass...hmmmm...tried, but couldn't get in. I didn't even know there was another site...”
“Ha ha! !”
“I just read about two guys over there that went on a blind trip together and it erupted into and ugly online bickering match. I thought the bp2go would have squashed it before it got to that point. I guess you should beware that 2 people my not get along on a trip together when they don't know each other.”
“Ya, I read thru part of that richb.. lol.. my gosh.. what a bunch of babies.”
“Uh, what is that site?”
“Tom, it's backpacker.com”
It's where "Eddie Bauer meets Eric Rudolph."
By the way.. I hiked over near Murphy NC not so long ago.”
“Eddie Bauer meets Eric Rudolph?
Nattily dressed mad bomber?”
“What is the name of the thread where the hikers are fighting? We have neeeeever had a problem like that on this site, right?”
“I love a good fight........as long as its someone else!”
“LyndyS -- you are so lazy!!.. :) :)
Anyways.. forums.backpacker.com -- click on find a hiking partner.. then click on 'be wise who you choose to go backpacking with'”
Be wise who you choose to go backpacking with...

"...especially if you don't know them personally, and DON'T CARPOOL WITH THAT PERSON(S). Without going into great detail, the person who chose to join me for this past Memorial Day weekend I did'nt really know except through these forums. He persuaded me to carpool with him from Columbus Ohio (BIG MISTAKE-that's a no no!). To put it nicely, we did'nt "hit it off" and I was stuck with this person for 2 days and MISERABLE! I'm not trying to scare you but just a word to the wise. Don't make the same mistake I did-you just mind up regretting it! You've been warned! Good luck finding your hiking partners!'”
“Hey TD, I am NOT lazy! I looked around on the site but didn't think to check the "Find a hiking partner" forum. I thought it would be in a trip report or one of the other more heavily traveled forums.”
“Actually, since they sounded like babies, I even checked the "Backpacking with kids" forum also.
I think that if I hiked with TownDawg, I'd be hitting him with my hiking stick whenever possible, because he would probably be teasing me constantly.”
“lol.. ya.. you prolly would LindyS.. lol.. we do need to hike 2gether sometime!!
hehe.. but that's what I can't figure about the OTHER board.. a really STRANGER bunch of folks.. than this board.. :)”
“Ya might get busted for "high sticking" Lyndy.....watch out!
Yeah really, what's with these guys?
Those guys oughta have their backpacking license suspended!”
“Unless that thread was heavily edited I’d say that compared to a couple of classic threads here, that was nothing. Those people know nothing about character assassination.”
“That thread has nothing on the stuff we sling 'round here. Another example of how the other site is second rate. They can't even fight well. :0”
“That's why I switched to the two hiking poles, Lyndy. That way I have a spare if I have to break one over somebody's head.”
“ya couple a sickos!
We do have some classic fight threads.”
“I'm not a big fan of fights, although they can be amusing sometimes. But if that's what passes for a disagreement, sheesh!”
“Oh that is why Tilt hikes with two poles, I thought he had bad knees or needed them for his tarp set-up.
I don't have trekking poles yet. Someday when I actually have time to backpack again, I will get those things. Right now I use a broomstick with a bicycle handle. It will still leave a welt though!”
“lyndyS: I knew you had a BROOMSTICK!”
“not the battery opperated harry potter broomstick is it?”
“Finally got on to register for the park pass.
It was a wimpy fight, and the guy who said he was leaving never did. It was a classic case of the slow fade that didn't fade. They can't even leave in a huff right.
Maybe this is why Tigger wants to examine the pack of his partners. To see if they're logging complaints that will later surface on the board.”
“Funny how they always come back.”
“Ive had it! Im leaving!
MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You wish!”
“What TownDawg, did I hit you with it already? Or are you saying that I am part of the "Charmed" crowd? Not likely. Witchcraft is da debil! I will pray for your tortured spongy fleabitten soul. :D”
“The threads were heavily edited, all 20 of them (no joke). It was rather amusing. Out of all of it I learned one thing...
"Arguing on the internet is like running in the special olympics. Even if you win, you're still retarded"
“The other site is messed up again.
What do you mean, edited threads?”
“Thanks for the sensitivity wvabackpacker.”
“You should've been there for The Wiggy Wars in '97. Some guy complained that his Wiggy bag lost its loft... then Wiggy posted his personal info on the 'net... then the guy accused Wiggy of hiring a private detective...
It was fairly nutty.”
“That's it, Geobeet? I was thinking that you or Mapleleaf would be loading the cannons. It was pretty low, Mr. WVaBackpacker.”
“I like the broomstick come-back!”
“I have not been over to the gear section in years--97 you say. The wiggy wars were funny.
I can't get in over there to find out what y'all are talking about.”
“LyndyS, edited as in bp2go took all the good stuff out, all the really low blows, etc.
I apologize if the special olympics picture offends anyone. I can see how it wouldn't be funny to some people.”
Now Everybody Knows I'm A Poster Child
“Not funny AT ALL...
Quit making fun of me!”
“hmmmmmmm someone else posted that very same photo here. could this be the very same person?
makes ya wonder....”
“That pic's been going around a while. I first saw it on a motorcycling board well over a year ago.”
“oh my gosh.. wvabackpacker is over on THIS board now?.. ohHhh.. the contamination!
eWwwww... get out the clorox!”
“WVA, you should be ashamed of yourself. Since when has it been amusing to ridicule a child with challenges? You are mean and suck.”
