    The name doesn't imply the means. Troll is part of my last name.

    I think it was a pretty legit question. I took a few minutes to look down the page. 30 out of 50 posts were by the same people, touching on the same things. Just a little strange, that's all. Apparently by the response, I'm the oddball here. Carry on.

    What is With This Place...My Version

Being a part of a group that builds and maintains trails that anyone can use and enjoy that is very exciting, too. I feel very passionate about this sport and all the great people I have met because of it. Do I get carried away? Yes, I probably do sometimes! Will I change or cut back on my posts? Absolutely Not! If anyone has a problem with that...I am sorry you feel that way, but please refer to my signature line!

    nepatroll,

    it was too easy a pun for me to miss. i'm not trying to be antagonistic.

    nepawhatsitcallshimselv has a lot of enthusiasm to share, and moto has picked up on that and has his own, and i'm all in belief that if people want to say something to share their Passions they should.

    The fact that more people visiting this particular corner of the forums are more reserved and not sharing of their passions, well, that means they're just not sharing their passions. It's no big deal. Nobody is required to.

    Other people post up semi-regularly, just not as frequently. I'm on-and-off. JeffSkisMontana is. Larry Fahn has great stuff to say. Nankerwhatshishane comes to mind too. I'm slowly learning more of the locals too, but there's many more good people on this area than I'm remembering, many more than I'm knowing, for sure.

    Not to sound like a smart-a$*, but why can't we all just get along. Everybody on this board obviously loves mountain biking so why can't we just all shut up and ride? That is what I am going to do....I am sick and tired of people shooting off their mouths because I like to talk about what I feel passionate about!!! NUF SAID!!!

    I've lived in 6 states over the last 15 years because of work. This is the only forum that exists to this capacity that caters to a select few. I don't speak for anyone else, but I can't imagine this not driving everyone nuts.

    NEPMTBA, there's 2 threads on here about motorcycles and another that has to do with some cat abhorrently photo-shopped into pictures. It appears these aforementioned threads are based around you and 2 other guys. I find it sort of ironic that you are going say..."another useless thread" when it seems you are the epitome of useless information. Not for nothing.....but I noticed all this in just 1 week of being a PA resident. Which is why I posted..."What is With This Place?" If you feel I'm embelishing the facts.....here's a challenge. Lurk the other forums and find something similar to this environment. I dare you.

    BINGO! FTW!

    Motoman, It's great that you found a passion for the sport we too love. We want to hear about your first trip to Merli and how that hill sucked. We want to hear about the time when you were riding and you were in the zone. Gathering info on Wissahickon to make a day trip. Pics of you riding Raystown. The time you cleared that damn hill. Your experience of your first drop. A bad crash that you walked away from... That's what a mtn biking forum is about. You'll meet a lot of us along the way and have a ton of friends to share your riding stories with! Maybe you'll come up Hubbard on a Thursnight and meet 60+ riders of all abilities and get some advice from others. You can find motivation when your with a group of riders that share similar stories... Food and beer, too. But, the "new topic" button in a statewide forum shouldn't be used for inside jokes or things that you can simply handle in an email or phone call to Lee. It's that specific that it's between you and Lee and sometimes 1-2 others. Lee said he has a shout box on his website. Can you guys post the stuff that "we" aren't going to have any interest in or understand, on that site or an email? Please? Don't take what I'm saying as a me-versus-you or us-versus-you. Lets ride and talk about riding. We will eventually meet.

    Over a million people view this site per month. If you thought of going to Fruita, Durango or Moab and went to the appropriate forum and read SPAM and advertisements all over the place, would consider going back to that forum? Of course not. The thing is, NEPA is becoming a destination that people come to ride. We have Prompton, Merli, Moosic and Lackawanna State Park all within 20 minutes. Not to mention Francis Slocum, 7 Tubs, and Moon Lake within 30 minutes. I see people from Ny at Moosic almost every time I'm up there working or riding. Binghamton, Syracuse, White Mills. Jersey, Philly and DC. These guys didn't need 20 threads daily to remind them of Moosic. Just a little reminder of updates... Like a new trail or a get together.

    Lee, nepmatb, What can I say? Once or twice a year Mr. Hyde comes out. Considering Lee wants to advertise his work, which is great, I find it more of a reason to not go there again because of the 15 new topics started about the place every day. Instead of "New Topic" try "Reply" to an already open thread. I feel like someone will be trolling me on the trails with a rake or something. Anyone else feel that way?

    NEPA Troll, Where are you living? Send me a PM and I'll give you the most useful info on Northeast PA.

    Anybody can post pics and ride reports. If you wanna post (like you did) you can. Some people are a little over the top with their posting enthusiasm, that doesn't make them bad people. You don't have to read anything you don't want to. As far as the posting of pics of rides, I think it's a good way to get a feel for a place before driving somewhere with the wrong bike or unrealistic expectations. I wish I would have read something or looked at some pics of Francis Slocum for example before wasting my time. If people annoy you there is an ignore feature here, use it.

    Hum? Nonsense? Capitalization & punctuation would be nice! Of course you nor Rob have emailed like gentlemen with a "real" problems now have you? I guess you just want to be heard. Meeting in person would revel too much about other things. You just want a to have an NEPMTBA bashing thread. I guess you really can't deal with all our success.

    Inalienable rights according to ganginwood? So, basically your saying posts about Clifbars (not posted by me by the way)and your view of what you call nonsense is just that "your attempt to silence others who post stuff you don't want to look at" Good luck on that one!

    I think "everyone" would like to see unfold in this arena talk and informing "everyone" about trails you build and ride? Does the Pa community know where they are? Don't we all have inalienable rights to ride them? Please "educate" and share with "all" of us. "Everyone" likes trails and "more" trails are always better. Why not invite "everyone" to ride them? Hum? Why not put up a post about all the trails you ride, so guys that post about Clif bars can come and ride them also? GOT TRAILS?

    We will now continue or (as ganginwood calls them)"littering posts

    You dug your own ditch my friend! I think you "now" have enough rope!

    I could be way off but it appears the part your missing is that it's the same people responding to the same garbage. It also looks like you have an organization that is represented by one person.

    My outsiders point of view, You guys are sounding and looking ridiculous. Yes it is nice to share info about your trails, workdays, group rides, pics, success, etc. but lately it is overboard. I come to this forum looking for information on trails, maps, and people to ride with when I am coming to the area. To be honest it is frustrating and confusing to have to filter through post with pics of people standing around in a parking lots and insiders jokes, not to metion all the politics between groups, this all leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I fully understand the idea of getting out the information but some of this stuff should stick to the groups web-page or the sticky at the top of the page. If you really want to make the area a mountain biking destination you all need to settle/discuss your diferences in private, and work together. Here in Vermont we have destination successes such as the Kingdomtrails, Millstone, and the beginning of a ride center in Stowe. None of these would be what they are today without all groups working together. No hard feelings I'm looking forward to riding your area this weekend, I'm just giving you an outsiders point of view

    I don't know Kevin personally, but if the comparison you are trying to make here is that Kevin's blog is overloaded with his personal riding activities, well...that's what personal blogs are for. I don't see all of this on here as he keeps it on his own site. His blog looks fine to me, or is it because he basically says, on his own site, what he thinks about Moon Lake that has you upset? At least he had the decency NOT to bring it on here.

    Kevin, nice blog!

    Lee, maybe you are not seeing this the way ALL of us are. You are posting up nonsense over and over again in the same topics just to keep the topics on top of the page. C'mon...cats photshopped on motorcycles? Now you know me, I love cats, but that's overboard.

    Every time someone posts something up you immediatly bury it. No one can get their information up at all. And then when people start calling you out on it and start hitting you with facts you start yelling "Useless Post" It's comical already.

    I am still your friend and have stated that to all the people that have been emailing me lately. Your heart is in the right place, but it's not all about you here. This is a board for the whole state, not the private message forum for NEPMTBA. You have your site & shoutbox for the craziness, just as we have ours.

    Really Pennsylvania, Is this the best that you can do?

    Why is there a NEPMTBA sticky at the top of the page. Shouldn't that be NEPA Trail Info? Its almost as if the title of the thread is perfect for this area. A seemingly One Man Association who represents an entire geographical area. Again....six much bigger states in my travels and I never saw a sticky at the top of any of these pages for trail info. I can't wait to meet this guy. I was also PM'd and told that he'll ask the moderator to remove threads that calls him out. Is this true?

    nepatroll,

    The only reason i've been able to figure out why there isn't a NEPA (and SEPA and ...) trail info sticky is that there's not enough regional cohesion to do it. I started trolling MTBR and the internet for info of the region way back in January when it looked likely that the Bear Clan was moving here and it took a LONG time to get any real information because of how discrete things are, and how poorly linked they are. For a real good example on how it SHOULD be go look at the MTBR Arizona Forum and scope the sticky there.

    I'm all in favor of the different groups minding their own back yards, it really does make sense that way quite frankly. But I do think that the region would benefit from a more cohesive presentation. Making things easier to find for visitors and newcomers and long term residents alike.

    Plains Bike, you find this a curiosity - I certainly do - but in using the internet since 1991 or so I've never run into a ShoutBox before I got up here. I think it serves a good purpose, but a (mostly-un- / lightly-) moderated discussion forum it is not.

    The WVMTBA discussion forum isn't a bad place either, but it's not (for lack of better terms) agnostic-enough nor responsive-enough (per-post moderator approval requirements prevent it from) to be much more widely used, it could never sustain if it had 100+ people posting a couple times an hour.

    I'm sure other bike groups in the state have their own forums/boxes too, as they should.

    Sadly, most people don't seem to participate in the MTBR PA forum for whatever reason and that dramatically reduces the utility of this forum.

    I've also tried to read the DirtRag forums, which seem a niece enough in it's own way, and I certainly love the Rag, but their forums presentation almost drives me away from it on sight. I still haven't figured that one out.

    RideMonkey has lots of good discussions too, not a bad alternative. Haven't been a regular on there in a long time though.

    NEPAMTBA may benefit from a group discussion forum (sorry gang, ShoutBox isn't the same), hard to say. They'd certainly be able to share the craziness there w/o "chuffing off" people who weren't regional. Non trivial undertaking though.

    ^ Sorry about the moderated posts at wvmtba, but as you know we have been battling the trolls over there big time. It's not the bots either, it's real people now trying to get on the forum to post up "Russina Brides..Viagra...all that stuff. Some are even being so witty now as to try to respond to a post but when we pull up their profile all the spam is in their signiature lines. Gotta give them credit, they are trying!

    NEPMTBA'S shoutbox is moderated the same way, so in actuality it's the same thing. The message forum Lee has over there is also quiet.

    I totally understand the reasoning, and don't argue that! :^)

    And yeah, now that you remind me, I have a link to the NEPMTBA forums somewhere (and have posted there) but for obvious reasons don't use it.

    And yes, "they" try hard. There's lots of money in the direct-spam business. I thought it was bad when it was just direct-mail (my older sister worked in telecomms marketing for a while so I used to hear ALL the dirt) but now that it's electronic it is just completely out of control.

    ^Yeah, no kidding. I guess they actually pay people now to just sit at home and spam sites.

    I had 3 today so far that I deleted before they got posted...and it's funny, one actually asked about the CDH ride and bringing a camera.....from Latvia!!!!

    From what I understand there also exist complexes where 50+ workers come to warehouse type facilities to do it all en-masse. Scary.

    Why is there a NEPMTBA sticky at the top of the page. Shouldn't that be NEPA Trail Info? Its almost as if the title of the thread is perfect for this area. A seemingly One Man Association who represents an entire geographical area. Again....six much bigger states in my travels and I never saw a sticky at the top of any of these pages for trail info. I can't wait to meet this guy. I was also PM'd and told that he'll ask the moderator to remove threads that calls him out. Is this true?
    Funny, I posted that to ganginwood(mxers version GAGONWOOD) yet you responded?

    Hum? Cat's out of the bag now!
    When do we all get to meet you in person? NEPAtroll?

    Doesn't matter what happens here on MTBR I think you should consider the people you have offended in the "real" world.

    sorry lee. i wish it were true. you know i don't like you, i know i don't like you. i don't even know if i like what this other guy is doing. but either way i have the balls to tell you to your face that i don't like you.

    it ain't personal.

    edit: all i asked was that this be resolved in this thread for everyone to see. i'd like to see both sides. and i would hate to see another thread , one thread for *****ing seems like enough. good luck with your other battles.

    Ted:

    We have a forum, but as you can see by all this nonsense no one here will work together and since we are into Moto and Jetski and Snow machines. Others who "bike" are threatened by that!

    NEPMTBA was the original and very successful. Our members ride, race and trail build in many venues as do we help others anyway we can! We're happy with our system.

    The original?

    Try Lackawanna Bike Club. Merli? How about Lackawanna? Prompton? They're all from members of the LBC. Gene and Pete Katapski (LBC) built Merli. Joe Tierney (LBC) established a great relation at LSP and fixes the old trails and put in several new ones. Pender (LBC) built Prompton with his own hands practically.

    Hubbard stepped in to help stop the timbering at Merli. Hubbard didn't build it or post their name on it. I'd post info if Hubbard was up maintaining it. That's it though.

    Lee, remember that ride you, Jay and I had after that day of clearing the trails at Merli? 12 people showed up and most left before lunch. Randy stuck around for that and the beginning of the ride and then split. But, you, Jay and me were riding right on that day. We were all in the zone! That was one of my favorite rides I can recall.

    What ever happened to those times? ttyl, Fahn

At least he had the decency NOT to bring it on here.

    Kevin, nice blog!

    Lee, maybe you are not seeing this the way ALL of us are. You are posting up nonsense over and over again in the same topics just to keep the topics on top of the page. C'mon...cats photshopped on motorcycles? Now you know me, I love cats, but that's overboard.

    Every time someone posts something up you immediatly bury it. No one can get their information up at all. And then when people start calling you out on it and start hitting you with facts you start yelling "Useless Post" It's comical already.

    I am still your friend and have stated that to all the people that have been emailing me lately. Your heart is in the right place, but it's not all about you here. This is a board for the whole state, not the private message forum for NEPMTBA. You have your site & shoutbox for the craziness, just as we have ours.

    Kevin
    wvmtba
    So check the photo shopped cat on a motorcycle. Blaming me? Might be an oversight look at the names on threads and who posts them. I'm not purposely trying to jamb posts to the top. It does seem MTBR is really busy and lot's are posting due to all the busy server notices I get, So it's not being done by me on purpose, yes there is a lot of posting. None the less I support the person in our camp who did the Hucking Kitty and it is funny in our camp. Hucking Kitty has been around a while and it is funny to "us" in "our camp" I guess it goes back to: Don't like stuff in others posts, don't go there! Posting your dislike is cool, but telling others how to post or constant preaching about... com'on you know this s88t.

    So, where is the negativity in posting for everyone to read Diebert's blog? His disliking of Moon Lake has to do with a whole other topic you weren't a party to, and his liking or dislike of Moon Lake doesn't matter to me. His blog, his opinions!

    This thread should become a sticky. We should change the title to "Calling you Out"

    To the rest of the PA members....sorry you have to go through this. But it looks like this guy had it coming to him.

    Are you kidding? Are you missing the point? Just because somebody else resorted to name calling doesn't mean it's ok! And in this case, it's not even somebody arguing against you! Your friend called somebody a childish name and all of sudden it's ok for you to call that person the same name?

    How can anybody take anything you say seriously if you justify name calling with the "he started it first" excuse?

    Yep sure Rob and I remember, and also you posting about the 29er trolls can commence speaking when you left to go ski a few years back. I ride 29 and PMed you to ask if it was also against me? You said you were just seeing who would respond... I knew you would post to that....well back at ya! I GOT YA!

    I just figured we needed a little humor in this thread, besides you didn't ask What "original" meant?

    Too bad it doesn't seem like we are really friends now! That was to me also one of the best rides I was ever on! All 3 of us were like Liquid...Ahh.... the good times, Hubbard rides also were like that also...yes what happened?

    Well, you see we were all happy minding our own business, but then you felt you had to add yourself into our mix with snide remarks, so now we are all enamored by you and just want to ride with you and share all the trail info you have to share. You do share don't you?

    I think ya hear me knock'in and I'm coming in with as few of my trail riding friends! Of course all we want is "trails info".... too bad you locked your blog yesterday and now we can't get that info, or can we? Will you kindly invite all of us as friends of yours so we can share in all you have to ride in your area? Please?

    Or, you might have missed my questions in a past post to you about your trails due to all the nonsense going on! No problem we're all still waiting for the info. Heck with the blog, post it here so everyone on MTBR. I'm sure everyone wants more info on trails to ride.

    Thanks

    I guess Roy and other people weren't around in the days when gagonwood used to talk bad about Slocum,MT top etc..He would put these places down and never had even come down to try them out.So basically he thinks that all these people that work hard in these areas are wasting there time.These people being NEPMTBA,Kevin and his club,Rob and Hubbard etc..Yep,he is a victim getting attacked on the forum.

    Please do not refer to wvmtba as Kevin's club, it's not..we're all in it together and it is not a one man show.

    Stop trying to twist this around as if it's all Roy's fault, Kevin D's Fault, Rob's fault and anyone that doesn't wave the NEPMTBA banner. Also, if you want to have a professional discussion, stop acting like children in Kindergarden and drop the name calling. If all of you knew what that makes you look like, you would be embarrassed to show your face on a trail, let alone in public. We're grown men, start acting like it.

    People have brought up a serious issue here and so far according to the poll that issue needs to be addressed because people are sick of the one sided show.

    Well, you certainly seem to be contributing alot to it, nepatroll. Why not try to do something constructive about it? Your first post on this board was asking about finding a place to ride. Alot of people contributed good info to try and help you out...how did you return the favor? You just started bashing people! If you are as well-traveled as you say you are then I am sure you learned this little fact. You can't please all the people all the time! Not everybody is going to be best buddies, that is a fact of life. Would it be great if we could all just get along as a community? Hell Yeah, it would be! Unfortunately that is not how the world works! I personally think it sucks! Do us all a favor, if you don't have anything nice to say...don't say anything. Isn't that what our mothers taught us?

    Kevin:

    NEPMTBA and I have every right to post all we post in this forum, and else where. We follow the rules. Sonetimes a bit much! Many posters post truly silly crap everywhere on MTBR again don't like it don't read it. You don't control MTBR neither does NEPMTBA, don't you realize what you look like to the rest of the world trying to bash my success with NEPMTBA? Your only opening more doors for me. You don't see other bike shop owners here bashing NEPMTBA do you? Just you! Might wanna think a bit

    Thanks

    Actually, trolls are quite common on almost every forum MTBR or otherwise.
    As far as what is wrong with this paticular forum? At the moment, it's you.

    Here is what I wrote in your "troll poll" which is even more fitting here(although I am begining to re-think the last statement):

    Troll, this is a public forum where anyone is free to post, not post, read or not read anything(within reason) The fact that a few very passionate MTBers post here on a regular basis, does not mean that you have to read what they say, nor does it in any way hinder anyone else's right to post. So, I guess I just don't see what your point is. Instead of putting down the way others choose to participate, why not just participate in the way you see fit, and ignore information that does not interest you.
    In your first post you asked about ride information in your area, were given some ideas, said that this was not your type of riding, but never followed up. What type of riding do you do? How far are you willing to drive? This information would have made it possible to respond to your request.
    I did not respond to your poll because I don't see the point. Do I think that a few members use the site on a regular basis? Yes. Do I have a problem with this? No. Do I think you should leave this forum? Absolutely not. If you put half the effort into making this a better site in a constructive way, rather than attacking others who are trying to do the same, I think you could be a very valuable asset to this forum.

    Yep. and I played with BMX Bikes before many mountain bikers knew what a bike was. What's your point Lee? Hmm, being named as an ABA Track Operator Hall of Famer last year after serving that sport since 1975, 18 as a track operator and 12 years as an ABA National Announcer I can say that was the best time of my life, and I'm dammned proud of that.

    Right now I'm having the same sucess with the freestyle/trail/park riders, so..again I ask you, what is your point?

    The only thing you can stoop to is insults when the facts are presented to you?

    Like stated in another thread, I ride when I can..it's not my life, so again, what's your point?

    Or..maybe I should put up a BMX Thread here? Now that would be cool, I'm sure people would appreciate that a lot more than the Moto thread as many Mountain Bikers today got their start on 20 inch BMX Bikes...Mike King, Jay DeJesus, many many more.

    No threat in any way!

    We both have rights.

    Your text is driven towards bashing NEPMTBA here on MTBR by making it your public forum against NEPMTBA I still don't know why? I post too much? I brag up riding and trails?

    Your making plenty of mistakes by threating NEPMTBA existence, myself, and others in our group, by trying to discredit us. Remember this statement? "I had better get used to it" Please explain to me "Get used to what?"

    What's funny about this is that you never know if he is refferring to NEPMTBA as a club or himself. Can somebody please tell me who is in this club and what they do? Is this one guy or is this an organization?

    And if this is an organization, does every ridiculous post and opinion he throws out there represent himself, or does he speak on behalf of the members? Where exactly do they do their work?

    I probably should have asked this stuff first. I would like to hear answers from people both inside the club and outside the club. But not NEPMTBA himself, or is it themselves? But it looks like he'll never be able to hold himself back, or themsleves back?

    Right now I'm having the same sucess with the freestyle/trail/park riders, so..again I ask you, what is your point?

    What is with this place?

    Kevin,

    Do you remember putting this in one of your posts?

    "even the post about the gap drop at Slocum when you and Todd belittled the trails and then proceeded to make some false accusations about people getting thrown out of the park for dog walking and such"

    I don't appreciate being called out by someone who does not even know me. What is it, you are having some kind of pissing match with Lee so I am guilty by association? I responded to that post over a week ago asking where I "belittled" the trails at FS and wanting to know how I made "false accusations." Are you going to respond to my questions or do you need more time to think?

    Since everybody is getting involved in everybody's business, show us the quote where Lee threatened you. We don't want to hear your version, copy and paste HIS words!

    For what it is worth....and I will beat you all to the punch I should head my own advice. If you can't get along and you are going to bicker like this...just shut up and leave each other alone!

    Awaiting your response, Kevin!

    I love that idea, mxer! I wasn't around for the BMX days, but love seeing old pics and hearing all the stories. I could definitely benefit from a cross training forum. How about, Kevin. Why not start one and hopefully everyone can constructively contribute and maybe, just maybe if we are lucky some people could benefit from it.

    I believe that everyone has experiences that can help others. Here is our chance to show it! Or would we rather keep this up?

    I am not going to dignify this with much of an answer. I joined NEPMTBA this summer when I started riding mountain bikes. Why don't you join us this evening at Moon Lake for our Wednesday ride and we can discuss what we do and where we do it.

    I know the Moon is not the type of riding you are looking for, but it is riding. I would prefer to ride at the Moon as compared to the rail trail I rode yesterday...but like Mic Jagger sang, "You can't always get what you want!"

    I sincerely hope to see you at the ride tonight. I, for one, would like to settle all this BS in a friendly manner!

    No one is discrediting your group Lee, we all know, and I have defended you to many many people here, of what you do, it's just the perception people get when you top post all over them and won't let anyone get a word in edgewise.

    People are noticing it, and not just me, that is why you have this issue you have now. You're what we call a Topic Hog..don't take that personally, but that is the internet phrase.

    As far as bashing groups, it started when NEPMTBA bashed Slocum and I responded, that is what set this off. It seems that everything is ok as long as everyone here toes the NEPMTBA line. The moment someone questions you or the motive, you first try to derail that conversation, and the if unsuccessfull, you turn to threats and bashing along with childish name calling, and as a last resort start screaming "Useless Thread"

    C'mon, you're better than that and you and I both know that, just as I am better than this as well

    There is where you are making your mistakes. As a FRIEND, listen to me here. Want it to stop? Call me.

    I kind of agree, however, this is MTBR, not a BMX forum. As far as cross training and BMX tips I would suggest Vintagebmx.com. They have some outstanding stuff on there.

    I'd rather see it end as I'm sure everyone is sick of it by now, however I just don't feel comfortable bringing in a non Mt Bike venue here, as you can see what happened with the MX posts.

    I mean, War Stories, Hell, I know Curry and I can patch up the differences here by some of the "He-Larious" stuff that went on, or at least laugh a bit.

    I'll actually give credit here to Lee as he helped build the first BMX track in the state, In Courtdale. I took over what is the longest running track on the East Coast, still running, soon to be the oldest running track if things keep going..so, yes, if maybe we can get a crosspost section up for "War Stories", wether BMX, MX, stupid stuff that we all laugh about...that could end it all. we can put all the crazy stuff there maybe? yes, no??

    Kevin the FS Gap Drop was started by Finus, so where is it your place to call NEPMTBA out and say we belittled FS? Do you realize how childlike that sounds? Oh Johnny called my dolly a name!!!!!! Even if we did express thoughts with FS trails we have the right to express negative opinions here. I'm not making it my goal to chase you around. It was a thread about a trail. It wasn't your thread.YOU CALLED US OUT AND YOU DON"T HAVE PROOF. You accused Motoman also when again NO PROOF! Then you make it your campaign to stop me? Where do you get off doing that? THREAD HOG? WHERE IS THAT YOUR CONCERN? FRIENDS? YA OK? MISTAKES? Ya better look at the one's you made,,,,,

    Your trying to drive wedges between all groups! Members of NEPMTBA, WVMTBA, Hubbard, CDH have all told me so! I don't have any problem with anyone and the people I ride with all have fun, so get your head out of your you know what and ride with everyone cause that's where the REAL news is not here on MTBR gossip forum!

    YOU HAVE MADE ENEMIES

    At the time it was a useless thread, but now "PLEASE BY ALL MEANS KEEP IT UP"

    I'm just getting started!!!!!!!!!

    Good job! What is With This Place?

    Kevin,

    Personally, Kevin, I have no problem with you. I have never met you. However, I do not appreciate the way you called me out with your comments about "belittling" and "false accusations."

    Kevin, I am requesting that you show me my words doing either of those things. If you can, I will be the better man and apologize not only to you, but to this forum.

    If you cannot show me proof to back up your "accusations," I would expect you to be a bigger man and apologize to not only me, but this forum.

    Show me what kind of man you are, Kevin. I will read your response later tonight...it's time to ride and forget all this BS on here!

    Yup, sure have. It is pretty neat! As a matter of fact, that is where my first real ride was. I remember I was having so much fun I just wanted to keep riding. But my body said NO! LOL!

    Ok Lee, whatever. Hold on a sec, I'll find that thread. I know FTF started it, but after we explained the parks stance on it you let us have it.

    Gap/Drop at Slocom

    Lee, Like me, you also have made enemies.

    Just like I didn't start this thread either, I just defended someone in it. I guess I don't have that right or do we all bow to your "Silence" order?

    Not me.

    Yeah, every spring, for me.

    Or something like that anyway.

    In the way-back when, when I lived in Maryland, before I lived in TX, every spring after the thaw my friend Keith and I would make our First Ride of the Year pilgrimage out to Elizabeth Furnace in VA. We rode the first couple miles up, or until someone barfed, then took a break and continued onwards, knowing that our annual sacrifice to the trail gods had been received.

    I'd be temped to make a December Trip for this but somehow driving like ten hours and riding six hours in one day just doesn't make my hit parade.

    Hmm. I do have friends in Haymarket VA I could crash with though. Hmm......

    Sure, no problem...and I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner but the posts are not falling on the page in order, kinda mixed up here with all the quotes and stuff going back and forth making things hard to follow.

    To keep the banter off here, I will PM you first my response, If you deem it inadequate, let me know..I won't be home tonight as I'm heading up to Hubbard if I can break away to meet up with Chris.

    Yeah..that is kinda nuts for a six hour ride.

    I thought by working at Sno Mountain in the Winter would keep me in shape as I walk about 10 miles a day up and down the base area. It does actually help a little but that first ride of the season I'm ready to barf over the bars..lol..annual trail sacrifice..I like that.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for getting a wrecked back in shape? Other than my Dr told me no more hard tails meaning Full Suspension (yuk) I'm kinda at a loss.

    Lady's and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Children of All Ages, What have we learned from this lesson today?


    That no matter who starts a thread in PA, and no matter who stirs the pot, the thread will always be overtaken by the same people.

    I asked a simple question about this forum in general, only after reading the nonsense about some Christmas party that I was browsing through. When I posted the question I was expecting a few stragglers to chime in. I got that from moonraker, roydean and other level headed individuals. But truth be told and 91 responses later, NEPMTBA, motoman, mxer, and plains bike have inundated the thread with probably 80 of the responses.

    The only thing I can think of is a quote from Hamlet...
    "The lady doth protesteth too much, me thinks"

    To NEPMTBA,
    After reading some of your other fine pieces of literature, you might have to google that phrase to figure it out.

    "Man, I love dem smiley things"

    Since you have yet to contribute a single positive thing to this forum, and have failed to follow up on your only MTBing related post, I can only assume that you created a user name to stalk a specific person. This leads me to believe you have some sort of adolecent crush on this person. Hey, nothing wrong with that, who are we to judge? Just buck up and ask him to the prom already

    No offense, but there is not too much going on in this place. I did ask a question prior to this post in the Michaux thread, if you're keeping track. But nothing else seemed propper. Besides, I had a dozen pm's about mountain top so there was no need to follow up. I also appreciate them not getting involved in the other garbage.....yes that I started, I know.

    I'm no professional trainer, and I didn't sleep at Holiday Inn Express last night, but I'm thinking that a regular regimen of stretching and strength training emphasizing core-body strength would help a lot.

    Formal flexibility/strength type stuff like yoga and Tai Chi may be good too. I've personally had good results from Chen style Tai Chi and Nei Kung practice (not that I'm doing that now, but I should).
