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

i know, right. seriously, i agree with signing in @ the TH and summits in case that might be a help in an emergency situation. i also agree with supporting CORSAR and have a 5-year card.

one pet peeve i have is people using to instead of too and than instead of then and omitting things like capital letters and punctuation like periods

and pink font :D

Had to call out Wildsnow for a particularly annoying grammatical error today, using "loose" instead of "lose."

Pretty foul and inconsiderate.

I'd like to add this one to my list also. Nasty. One time I was coming down the Mt. Antero road (near 11,500') and came up on a dude crapping in the middle of the 4WD road! Seriously, in the middle of the road. Paper galore :-&


I came across a steamer right in the middle of the Narrows on Longs. Its called the Narrows for a reason, that just adds to the danger of now having to step around said steamer. Thats the kind of stuff I don't ever want to see, especially while in the mountains.

City grievances

1. Sweatpants that say "PINK" across the arse that are some color other than pink. Usually acompanied by Uggs and lot's of "OMG's," "really's" and "like's"
2. Pedestrians who step into the bike lane without even a slight consideration for the fact that a collision with a 230 lb man on his bike would end badly for the both of them
3. The return of 80's fashions

Yes, I work on a college campus, thus the origin of all of my grievances

1) cyclists running red lights (i am a HUGE share the road advocate, but 99% of cyclists i see seem to think it means "share the road with me, then i can act however i want while on the road"... it works both ways)

2) the words "epic" and "fail" ... all the worse when someone uses them together. Mr. Maddox sums it up nicely ... http://thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=epic

3) red light cameras (you may have seen me on the CBS 4 news a couple weeks ago whining about these - http://denver.cbslocal.com/2011/11/03/denver-collects-fines-on-drivers-who-stop-at-red-lights/)

I do not think the word pink is referring to the color of the wording, just FYI.

I absolutely despise the City of Denver. Their laws are ridiculous, the police department is sketchy at best (even though I have a friend who is a denver cop), cops killing people in their own homes when it was the wrong home in the first place, beating people, etc. This red light, stopping just over the white line thing just adds to the crap they continue to pull. So much for freedoms and allowances for minor mistakes.

First of all, the Festivus episode has got to be one of the best from the Seinfeld days!

A few grievances I have:
-technology that allows users to post on the forum from the TH and summits
-trench poachers that in turn brag about their times and claim to be alpinists
-TR's that do not have breaks/paragraphs in the text to break it up a bit
