Wilbeer, likewise!
Hope your newest direction/career path is going well, and you're still finding time to bike and paddle and do fine construction.
We'll see about the climbing, I need to re-motivate substantially on that front. However, will be taking possession of a new/old Beemer dual-sport soon with the express intent for longer tours, and heading your way would be an excellent agenda item. Domestic situation is a bit unsettled at the moment but turbulence is moderating.

Stay fit and mellow, will miss your updates.

I've posted and then deleted my comments over and over and over.

Sorry, saying goodbye to the Taco leaves me profoundly sad.

"See you all on taco salad?"...

WIDE FETISH is much more lively and interesting...

"taco Salad" = Holsom White Bread...(JUST my opinion)...

Plus on WIDE FETISH, posting photo's/videos of pretty much whatever, is allowed...

as evidenced by the Moose bunghole shot...

At first I hoped it was an artfully contrived representation utilizing another body part but no it is pure bunghole

Does anyone know...the exact time that the ST Forum will be shuttered?

Is it 12:01 am, June 1?

Or 12:00 midnight, June 1?

Or some other random time, whenever someone has the inclination to pull the plug?

Thanks for the good run CMAC. I remember when you first started making topos and people were all complainy about how much information was on the drawings.

In retrospect, the complaints seems so quaint. Nowadays, I can watch you tube video of any climb I want, by route. It doesn't change much, the desire to go see for yourself is as strong as ever.

Too bad this thing isn't worth the money- I loved the TR and connecting with old friends, and making new ones.

Surely you have noticed how nice and civilized Supertopo's forum have become now that you "laid down the law."

So how about reconsidering? Keep the forums alive and kicking!

The crowd will be so appreciative and may even behave ... for a while.

Potential cost of litigation...hmmm, Chouinard put forth that as one of the reasons he divested himself of Chouinard Equipment. The truth went beyond that.
Whenever I hear “potential cost of litigation” presented as a reason there is a little beep from my bullshit detector.
In YC’s case there was real litigation that went nowhere and the spectre of possible future litigation.
Anyone who gets married, trust me, runs the risk down the road of “potential cost of litigation.”
....hasn’t stopped too many people.

It's a bit much for me to digest. I have met so many nice people through this place. I probably use it a bit as a therapy outlet as well...

WHOA!!! I just heard that Supertopo is being shut down. Even though I haven't been on here for a long while (years), this makes me sad that it is coming to an end. Thanks for hosting us here, and I really have met awesome friends from this site. I wanted to sign off, hope I see people from here in person down the road!
