Updated my email Addy, noticed my #. Those before me must have fallen by the wayside.

I'm still here. Don't post as often though, not that I was ever a major poster.

I don't post as much as I used to, I quit as moderator, and at 81 this old gray mare definitely ain't what she used to be, but I'm still here!

I notice that there's a lot of "come and go" here--one week there are lots of posts and others there are hardly any.

Anyway, Merry Christmas (or substitute holiday of your choice) and Happy New Year!

If I don't have much to say, I'll disappear. Merry Christmas.

I ran out of things to say AND frankly I feel a lot of UL is BS and who really cares which is the "best tent" or "the best BS?" I had other things to do... Like kayak ski and snowmobile. How many times can you repeat something and get a kik out of it?
