Your welcome. I might appear that the OP was not. I bet he posted some great stuff to the thread in question.

I say no deleting threads/posts unless someone has been offended and called you on it..... (If you start a thread, and someone else has posted to it, then you should not delete the post. If someone posts a thread that you have posted to, do not delete the post.)

Unless someone says foul, and asks you to pull it.

Pretty simple practice...

But that's too easy right..

P.S. Edit: Norweg... you're posts are brilliant.

I got an idea. You can create a thread called: Responses to t*r threads.

You leave this post completely blank until you want to respond to a t*r post. when you do, do so in your Responses thread. That way you have complete control over your words/threads.


Good luck with that

t*r is NOT low rent. She is a lovely person. The practice of deleting threads IS low rent and quite possibly t*r does not appreciate all the ramifications of doing so. She is a very nice person. She likely is not aware that her habit of deleting threads could be causing a problem.

norweigian, i'm not sure why you're so upset because you've posted that story here before anyways. i don't know why i deleted, no reason really, i don't know why you demand that everyone have a reason for everything, it's just not climbing related anyways so why waste bandwidth. also, it is totally disengenous to be b*tching about this. you all know damn well if you are really that unhappy with a thread being deleted you can start your own thread and post all the replies from the old thread.

here, let me demonstrate:

Fred Franzia (maker of two buck chuck)[not to be confused with Franzia wine which his father owned and sold much to his dismay] is an amazing man. A strait forward no bullshit kinda guy. If you were to ask him, he'd tell you all the imported dirt, expensive fancy varieties of grapes, prestigious vineyards and expensive bottles of wine are all nonsense. You can make a two dollar bottle of wine that competes with a 1000 dollar bottle of wine, no prob. He's even been quoted for saying you can grow grapes on asphalt and win awards.

Interesting fellow who has hundreds of millions of dollars but still drives an old beater truck.

Anyway, I recently bought a bottle of something red. Never liked wine of any sort. Figured maybe my palate has matured over the years and I'd take a liking to it... Nope! That stuffs crap, I'll stick to beer.

I'm not much of a wine drinker or buyer, and so can't contribute to the discussion of the niceties. I guess I'm a little repelled by the pretentiousness of it all. My few purchases seem based on country of origin (Canada), price, and visual attraction of bottle and label, but there you are.

Maybe PTPP will learn me about these things if we go on a vertical camping trip next year.

In the meantime, where does one buy "two buck chuck"? Maybe the next time I'm in the US I'll buy some and give it a try.

Two-Buck Chuck Cabernet, if left in the cellar for a few years, seems to be the all-time best value in red wine. It's a bit harsh, right out the door.

sorry, just posting out loud. Nov 12, 2009 - 12:01am PT
if anyone would bother to let a 2 buck chuck sit for awhile before drinking it, most of the bottles are quite drinkable and are similar tasting to other blended wines I've had.


I'll second apogees Clos du bois nomination, but more particularly the 2004 Merlot. Never had a bad bottle of the 2004.

Anders, if you also camp in yr RV in the Kmart parking lot and do a side-trip to buy a condo at Sudden Lake, you can do a complete Canadian Triple Crown tour of Whatcom County.

the leaves are changing colors and the shadows have shifted. time to start stocking the nest for the upcoming wet cycle.

dad shoulders the responsibility and...im going woodcuttin on my saturday! up to our cabin in strawberry where downed wood abounds. i saw, split and load approximately a cord of wood before noon. fukin tazmanian devil shatters the morning serenity of this sleepy retirment community. my neighbors are looking out of their windows past steamy cups of coffee, wonderin of the spry, 'young' newcomer wearin tattered overalls with a steel-your-face patch!

i tie down the load in my grossly overloaded toyota and trailer, and split to the american river with my two cans of beer and my retreiver. i quickly put 36 ounces in my head (one was a tall can), and am wishin i had more.

dog's chasin sticks in the cold water, dad's boulderin on everything in site. i walk back up to the cabin and look into the liquor cupboard, which came fully stocked with the relic cabin. i uncork an old, old bottle of sheraz vino. just a small cup to complement and perpetuate my buzz.

between my overworked morning, my lack of quality breakfast, and my choice of beverages, im tilting a little to the east. oh shite, im scheduled to pick up my daughters in 90 minutes down in placerville. i call the sitter (grandma) and explain my predicament. ""im a cop magnet with the load of wood i got, and im three sheets to the wind so to speak, would it be ok if i have mom pick up the angels at 7?""

since this is the first time i have pulled this card in 5-years, she concedes. so i pedal my bike and trailer up to the leap, shoulder my rack, rope and silent partner, and stroll off to climb something. oh, and since i wont be drivin for a mere couple of hours, i'll just take this bottle of wine with me to keep me courageous.

so here comes up the pony express a tattered and worn old boy adorned in older cams and grateful dead ensignia, swillin shiraz and smilin at all of the cowboy ghosts.

i settle on east crack and attempt to run the first two pitches together with my 70 meter rope. just shy of bushy ledge the end of my rope spins thru my silent partner. hmm. off belay i whimper to my ropemate. my usual backup knot consists of the clove-hitched slack loops on the side of my harness. as i had let out the last coil of slack, i temporarily had no backup knot. luckily the tail of rope snags on a flake 20 feet below me. i down solo and set up my belay. rap and clean the pitch, and summit in the evening twilight.

rejoining the dad journey, i aim toward home. all the wiser and a little more fulfilled.

When you 'delete' a thread you remove the ready link to other people's efforts, Without Their Permission.

How can that possibly be right?

if this thread / "hissy fit" had been started by a woman, you all would have called her a drama queen.

why get so upset about a reposted story you apparently needed more kudos on? clearly you already had it saved on your computer anyways.

so check it babe.

maybe i feel like a little bit of an asse for crossing the placid river and shouting from the shore unkind. in my original post i mean.

shall i delete it? i wont.

jest let em roll. the thread...bumps and all. if i got cold feet and backed out the delete door, then all these thoughtful folks' thoughts would drift into the inconvenient realm, and thus obscurity.

that is unkind as they took the time to share. and i respect their efforts and wit.

beside, most of my shite drifts off the front page on its own, tiptoe-ing across these landscapes as a slight trot...

cheers. other than your deleting habit, which i don't really mind that much anyway, i respect you.
