It's an English site, with about three bazillion members. If you can stand the strange words they use (It's REAL English) you might just find something you like. My personal favourites are "Kit Chatter" and "Edge Forums."

The members are more focused on the survival aspect of the outdoors, as apposed to the hiking/climbing aspect, and there are a lot of old-school members on it who use a lot of old-fashioned equipment as apposed to Rock's "Ultralight" approach. However, I think some of you might find it useful as another outdoor resource site.

Happy Hunting!

I joined this site. As to the strange words, didn't Churchill say that England and America are two countries separated by a common language? :biggrin:

I'm going to take a gander in just a second. Just think, people who know how to spell "colour" and "socialise."

They really do admire Americans over the pond, you know. After all, y'all went from barbarism to decadence without bothering to create a civilisation in between. :angel:

Y'all did good.

Just because we don't eat crumpets or wear big puffy collars doesn't mean we're not civilized! Our President wears cowboy boots, damnit!

But "colour" and "socialise" I can understand even if they're mispelled. Earlier over there, something was "up to millet." WTF? No idea, but I think it means "up to snuff." Why can't those guys speak English?!

He at least took the spurs off his boots. Now, a Texan would say "off of" his boots.

The millet thing has me stumped, too. I can imagine getting knackered reading the vernacular.

"After all, y'all went from barbarism to decadence without bothering to create a civilisation in between."

Sowthefrican, was your arrival the point at which we arrived at decadence?
Maybe if you left we could work on the civilization. Actually, Texas has long been the nexus of civilization for the entire continent.

John, I am about 40 miles from you! What can I say - I got here as soon as I could!

I saw somewhere the other day someone saying something about some village in Texas missing it's idiot. I sat on my hands 'cos I wanted to tell them all the idiots went north, and are Yankees. :biggrin:

Souwthefrican,
What direction? Have you tried hiking the crosstimbers or... Dang, the trail out of Oklahoma into Arkansas. Can't remember the name and don't have time to look it up.

Ouachita trail!
Hate these TIA's

Just far enough south to escape the vicious weather you sometimes have up there. Do you know people claim bigfoot lives out in them there woods?

Do you mean Cross Timbers on Lake Texoma? Indeedy, very good hiking. I have also done a portion of the Ouachita, and rambled around the Wichitas. Then, of course, there is Beavers Bend's David Boren trail which is great.

Aren't we lucky? :biggrin:

Major Ashley-Pitt: In our experience, Americans are uncouth misfits who should be run out of their own barbaric country.
...
Matthew Quigley: Major. We already run the misfits outta our country. We sent 'em back to England.

Please translate the above for this decadent, uncivilized misfit. :confused:

properly southern, that should be "Ya'll done good"... but i knew what you meant...

on the 'separated by a common language thing', i did an exercise once, with some brits, aussies, kiwis, cannucks, and yanks, over in england... god, what a riot... the only people with remotely the same language were the kiwis and aussies... took about 3 days just to figure out a common military operating language, where we all understood what the others meant... and the things the brits will put between two slices of bread and call a sandwich! good breakfasts though...

funny though... when we went out at night, after about the 2nd 'pint' of "Four X", we all understood one another perfectly... could sing too...

Wasting my time (skiving) while sitting on my rear (bahookie), wearing my houseshoes (baffies) and eating sausage and potatoes (bangers & mash) whilst watching you saps (sappos) make a total mess (balls-up) of this discussion.
