I get pissed when I walk down to a riverbank or stream and there is a big wad of fishing line wrapped all over rocks and logs;
It looks bad, you trip on it and animals can get tangled up.
I know snags happen, but people need to clean up as much of it as possible.

Interesting quiz, kimo ... I'd be curious to know how others scored (mine was a 7).


30 [Maybe the rumors ARE true!]

That's one of my favorites, especially when clueless white people wear it, not realizing the irony.
I have a Pueblo Indian friend in Santa Fe who sells these to tourists. He says the laugh he gets each time is worth almost as much as the revenue.
Happy Festivus, for sure!

Kind of related to hiking...
Driving to & from trailheads I take Hwy 24 often over Battle Mtn, through Leadville,, etc... I am so sick of people who pass on double-yellow, in a curve on that highway (or any road, for that matter). Forget putting cameras in red lights. They should put up a few on Battle Mtn!

+1 on Battle Mountain! There's not much room to avoid a problem driver, unless you have a parachute.

Scored a 9. I don't like being told how to live or what to do (unless I ask for someones advice or to teach me something I don't know). I prefer to step up and take responsibility for my f*@# ups and I like to do things for myself. I don't mind helping people out when they are in need. I' am a bald guy in his mid 30's, married with 4 daughters, so I really don't care how I look, just how I feel physically (and thats to keep up with my kids). I do drive my wife crazy however by talking about climbing, hiking, skiing and now snowboarding all the time.

I have no problems with Butt advertising, as long as they keep off mens clothing, nobody wants to see that.
The spaces between is where I reside, In the moment is where I live, and my family and friends are who I love.

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?

Haha that pic was actually up on Uncompahgre back in September...the thing almost exploded like one of those old school "snake in the peanut can" tricks. Trying to get it back into the thing was even worse.

And in the spirit of Thanksgiving thanks for the work you do!

One more grievance to add to my list, and this one is Very important.
Ben & Jerry's doesn't make "Festivus...an ice cream for the rest of us" anymore. That was some good creamy goodness.

Yeah, but in the meantime they're making "Schweddy Balls"...which no one can resist. :mrgreen:
