I don't have an opinion one way or another regarding the hot tub. Sounds like something I would have found fun in my college age years.
But dont lump all TR's as "bragging". I dont read trip reports to see a persons accomplishments, I read them to gain information. Same reason I dont usually write/read trip reports on popular routes/mountains. I guarantee
that if you had wrote something up about methods used for your hot tub shin-dig, information on what you did to build it, "nuts and bolts", or just something else besides "this is what we did" you would have gotten more positive feedback. Hell, I would have enjoyed reading it.
I think some people took your quick post on it the same as someone takes a one line trip report saying "We conquered Quandary Peak!!" I think thats why you are getting a bit of negative feedback.

Thumbs up on this. Nicely stated.
Just my opinion. BTW, I think I have a buyer for your hottub. It seems SurfNTurf is looking for a small pool in the Happy Hour thread.
