Another annoyance: using the word "loose" when the writer means "lose."

No... that's not quite the "really" I am thinking of.... Here you go Bean:

As you can see, the word doesn't flow from the audience but rather from the speaker....I still use "really" to express combined excitement and semi-disbelief.

1) Inconsiderate shoppers (I work retail)
2) People on trails who don't want to be there
3) People on trails who don't say hi or even acknowledge you as you kindly acknowledge them.

That little blue cube with a question mark in it, I get it on my Iphone, especially when in the "Music" thread. I think it is a link to YouTube, but I am not sure.

Festivus for the Restivus--Humbug

My gripe:

Those hikers and climbers who spend 1000 bucks on gear but won't spend three bucks for a year long CORSAR card.
One other thing while I'm in a good mood. Climbers who are to good to sign in on the registers.

Summit registers like this haha?

Just kidding...I know it is important. And yes, everyone should have a cosar card if they don't have a hunting/fishing license.

What are summit registers used for? I'm a bad man who doesn't ever sign them...

Dear rangerdrew
let me enlighten you.

First of all to answer several posts back----All summit registers in Custer County and a few in close proximity have been cleaned out and new sign in sheets made available by CCSAR members.

Why sign in? Maybe you're going for a four peak weekend. Maybe something happens between peak #2 and peak # 3. You've signed into # 1 and # 2 but not #3. The Sar outfit looking for you has now narrowed down their search area by 75%. whatchathink?

"I've got a lot of PROBLEMS WITH YOU PEOPLE!!!!"
1) The fact that no matter where I drive in Denver, there is always either someone in front of me going 10 under, or someone riding my back bumper... or both.
2) Blue tooth users.
3) Reality TV.
4) Careless grammatical errors (I am not a grammar Nazi. I am a grammar patriot.)

Mountain-related grievances:
1) Colorado natives who couldn't so much as point out Mt. Evans if their lives depended on it.
2) Anyone who lives in Colorado and complains about snow.
3) The fact that my only reliable form of transportation can barely get me past Genesee or Conifer.
