Phil, Jason and Denis - for all the trail advice and saving us from 12 plus hours of driving.

Patrick (Patman) - as I recall he mentioned one time about using a trash compactor bag on the feet of his sleeping bag for warmth . Well I remembered that the other day up near Rhododendron Gap. The condensation was so bad that I noticed that the bottom of my bag way in danger of wetting out where my feet are touching the tent walls. I forget who gave me the idea to use a trash bag in my pack, and this was the 1st time I actually brought one, but it works great. WAY to go Patrick! Much appreciated you help up all.

also would like to mention 

TIPI- his 2012 trip report for Grayson was an excellent resource for that area.

JR - about not hanging a bear canister. Didn't need one this go round but I still remember that from a few years ago.

And Many Others!

Thanks Gang! Keep doing what you do.

p.s. anyone else have a shout out to a fellow member?

JR, actually I'll reverse that shout-out and thank everyone for tolerating this opinionated, pissy old white man's ranting about all things considered.  But honestly I enjoy the interaction even when the target of ire.  But otherwise I second JR's shout, no matter how much experience one has, there is always more to learn from others, and there are quite a few others on this forum.

I always take notes when overmywaders posts something. Same with North. Much appreciated.

I am very grateful that others have found value in my contributions. Grateful that my journey allows me to help others in their journey.

Pouring one out for our members who may yet join us again: Gonzan, Ricky-P, Dewey, kutenay, and coutless unnamed.

I echo all these and can't think of many more in my time on TS...I do miss Trouthunter's (Mike Gartman) advice and tidal swamp hanging camps...and I'm sure we are missing a few more.

Just a great bunch of folks to hang out, debate, laugh, and learn with in this little corner of the web...

I agree John, I've learned a lot reading these forums. Trailspace is an unusual little corner of the internet.
