>Is this the same thing as giving your wife a treadmill for christmas?

My dad gave my mom a snow blower for christmas one year.



But, I was pondering that orange bar myself. On one hand its harmless internal advertising. On the other, its completely un-BPL compared to the past. I do understand the need to try to drum up business. To be selfish, I hope BPL never allows 3rd party advertising.....and yet....I'd rather have a BPL with advertisements than no BPL at all.

Even PBS, big as it is, still has to have friggin telethons. Telethons?!?

I say give the boys (and Addie)(and Carol, still?) a break, they're just tryin' to keep the store stocked.

Oh, I have no problem with them advertising.

I wonder what kind of reaction you would get if you bought your buddy a gift subscription to BPL when his pack weighed 70 pounds. I'd want to keep the hospital on speed dial, that's all.

If you ask politely I'll send the gift subscription to your friend anonymously. As far as buying your wife a treadmill... you're on your own with that one!

As far as third-party advertising is concerned, you can read our policy on our about us

I want gift subscription certificates to sneak into those refrigerator-sized heavy packs at the trailhead. :D (Although, I'd never actually do something like this... because they'd never find something that small amongst all of that gear.)

These guys have lots of such friends. Maybe some nice trekking poles also!
