So much for not starting a debate

If he does lock it, I'll start another thread... I've got titles arranged.

"The Continuing Saga of Missy Lucky"
"Picking up the pieces of personal responsibility in the wake of Sawtooth Missy."
"14ers and the want for a police-state mentality... And Missy."
"How many ways the Missy episode on Bierstadt violates the principles of LNT"
"If I just title this thread "Missy" will it get 100 replies?"
You've never really stopped even if you feel like you have.

EDIT - (Sorry I forgot to say this) Very glad to hear that Missy/Lucky is doing great!


Rescue horses? Been done, I was there.

Also, can we merge this thread with the original missy one? I really want to see it pass the post count of the cesspool that is the music thread.

Where is the owner of that horse?
We should hunt them down and have a good ol fashioned internet lynching.
Can we change its name too?
