Bob Gross, 5000th post! on 09/09/2011 20:55:22 MDT Print View

5,000 posts!

18 months!

That's 280 posts per month.

Or roughly 10 posts per day every day for 1.5 years.

Welcome to super-forum-postdom!

Boooooooooooom!

1. Facts.
2. A celebration.

Perhaps a BPL membership is in order to celebrate! ;-)

I've been backpacking "light" this way since the early 1980's, so lots of the topics that we discuss here are second nature to me. I enjoy making my own gear, so I am generally asking questions to learn when I see something good mentioned. However, I have spent about 50% of my days in the mountains since late July, so lately I get to pop my head in here for only a few days at a time.

Hmmmm.

That will slow down your progress towards 10,000 posts.

On the bright side, winter is coming.

"I bow to you in respect."

Genuflection is totally unnecessary.

It would be better to buy me a beer after the next backpack trip.

Jay, I have explained this before. I do not want to support anybody.

I had a paid membership here several years ago. Then I started getting spam to my email address that only BPL had. So, I had to cancel the whole membership to stop that.

Read his profile. He tells you straight up. Jardine is a wanna be Gross.

Is this poking fun or forum bullying?

I nominate this as strangest thread ever. Why no love for Bob? I enjoy his posts.

I'm a bit disappointed. I thought it was more.

Congratulatons Bob!
BUT, you better have trashed, shredded, torn a bunch of gear.
