    This must be one of the few forums where you do not have to get banned for removal,

    You can scare yourself away!

    I am not sure what the average post count is before the average new member fades away through lack of interest.

    While there are some of us with thousands of posts I think the average must be about 200-250 for the real interested, with a whole bunch making less than 50 before disappearing.

    I think he felt like he was doing the Aussie salud at all the knockers. He did the same so.... He seemed sometimes ridgy-didge and sometimes a bit of a figjam or a showpony.. Had some good oil though. I'm not gunna whinge one way or the other. I think in another thread he was more or less called a bushranger and that caused him to finally throw a wobbly. Uhh, I think I got the language right?

    I think some people reach a point, and realize that nobody is particularly impressed with their "I'm the wonder survivalist, pay attention to me" antics. How many people have vanished, or pitched a fit and been banned, after somebody else said "So you killed a charging moose with a can opener and the power of suggestion, eh? How did that work?"

    That is what makes this site great though. If you really want to come here to learn and share what you have learned, things can and will go far for you. If you come here expecting a large audience and carry an attitude, you will be raked over coals until you are banned or decide to leave on your own accord.

    Personally I think this is a great place with lots of really excellent information. If you want and you take the time you can find as detailed and technical information as there is by reading the threads and following the links. I have always been a little unclear on why adults would want to go to a "wilderness survival" school anyway. Just get up and go camping. If you get out in the woods and have fun you most definitely will learn what works for your first aid kit and what knife is better for the stuff you choose to use it for. I promise you will figure out several different ways to start a fire, using a variety of methods! One of teh reasons I keep coming back here is because of the product information and the field experience. All y'alls personalities are just an "added blessing"

    [QUOTE=DSJohnson;460975]............................... All y'alls personalities are just an "added blessing"[/QUOTE]

    Been called a lot of things....Blessing has never been one....Thank you!....LOL

    I could never figure that out either......I suppose many people depend on formal training?.......Some would rather just get the basics and "Go for it"

    Part that gets me is the "What is the BEST?'.....There is no Best, ...there is best right now.

    Like the is supposed to be ONE BEST OF EVERYTHING......and there are those that declare their way is "Best"...and get bent out of shape when everyone else doesn't agree, bow down and declare them the "BEST" there ever is/was/gonna be.

    Been hanging out here for a while now.....and there are many, many, knowledgeable and experienced people, on just about any subject...so much so it keeps me looking up new things, and getting a view of places, people and thing for everywhere.....
    And mostly with a sense of humor.....
    That IS the blessing.

    I have been around for years... I just post on the forum when i have something worthwhile, via experience etc, to say, (rare) or I found something novel and worth sharing (rare again). Also 3 kids and worrying about paying bills will keep a man very busy.

    That sums up 80% of what is required to actually learn. Just go and do the stuff. Unfortunately, many people seek instant gratification. They want to know what is the best what ever thinking that it will trump any lack of knowledge or skill and make them the awe of humanity. Actually going out and trying what works, what doesn't, and experimenting with what is best for your situation or limitations is the only way to make progress. The rest comes with time.

    It always amuses me when a new member appears with all of his/her sage wisdom on all aspects of the outdoors and homesteading thinking that this will be the first time anyone has heard their information, even after all the years this forum has existed.

    The second thing that amazes me is we have people here operating with WNT syndrome. We Never Tire.

    WE NEVER TIRE of talking about fire building, navigation, wild plants, hobby farming, fishing, hunting, anything that shoots a bullet of any kind, or joking with each other.

    We will gladly discuss how to make a fire bow for the fifth time this month, list the veggies we planted this week and compare the garden progress to last year, explain how to get a gun that already shoots into 1/2 inch to shoot into 1/4 inch, how to sharpen a knife and not only that but how to sharpen that exact brand and model knife!

    We can tell you which truck will last for 40 years and how to fix it and someone here will have had the exact same breakdown and know just exactly how many rubber bands and coat hangers it is going to take to get the rig back on the road.

    For marriage counseling and child rearing advice you need to check out the general chat section. Some of us have been married enough times, or long enough to have faced most problems and have a solution, or opinion, on almost every human interaction.

    Those of us that have been here for some time have had the help of the forum through accident, injury, sickness and loss of loved ones.

    It is one of the few places on the internet where one knows that once a year there will be a gathering of the invisible persons standing behind the screen names. It may be too far to drive and some may never make it to the gathering, but some of us have shaken hands, eaten meals, dodged bears and patiently awaited the arrival of ambulances together. Others have flown 5000 miles to get too the gathering, some only 2000, and some drive for 2 days to arrive. We do hate to miss a party!

    On top of that our forum background colors are very soothing and non-abrasive to the vision.

    Why would anyone want to be deleted from here?
