Seriously though.....is it me, or do the people on this site have a better sense of humor? Some of the posts lately have been hilarious.
Well Joe, to me "The Zone" is a warm, welcoming community that kinda lets you be the real you, not just a judgmental analysis of your peakbagging stats. I've sensed zero competition for bragging rights since this site got cranked up last year, and I like that. Hiking and climbing should be fun, dammit - otherwise why do it? I like Bee's comment to me once - "refuge" was the term she used. I think that hits the nail right on the head.
And oh yeah, there are some seriously funny folks on this board! 'Tude's initial post on the "Remembering When" thread had me laughing for days.
