i would think mockery alone is flaming

bringing someone back down to earth would be something else

in any case- hoping to hear from OP about more specifics on their idea

Ya, I'm gonna throw this out there.

This is the 3rd thread I've read today where mods/long time users have just openly mocked/talked down to others for trying to innocently get replies on something they were interested in.

How is this being welcoming, or providing a good space for the traveling community on here?

Seriously, it's getting fucking old. I love this website, and I'm seeing more of this exclusive behavior day by day, its depressing. If you dont agree with something, why dont you just move on, instead of just riling the user up and constantly talking higher-than-thou shit to them.

You seem to freely ban others for this kind of behavior.

Feel free to rate this post stupid as many times as you need to.
i dont think any of my replies are mocking. i simply stated that the op was starting a cult.

would you care to link some threads where you feel others are being treated unfair? because ide love to see em.

making the kool aid maybe? im considering locking this thread before it becomes a total disaster. we have no obligation to host this kinda stuff and its obviously brought out some hostility.

terribly sorry to anybody who was offended by me calling a spade a spade.

It seems like the hostility in this thread is specifically coming from you @SlankyLanky

Because neither I, nor @roughdraft have resorted to hostility, name calling, or any of the sort. I'll get back to you on the other threads.

Look, I said my piece and was attacked for it. So I will shut my mouth, and continue on my way. This conversation is obviously notworth having.

I’m kind of homesteading right now on my 1.69 parcel in a 12x12 cabin. Been busy as hell cutting wood for winter with a bow saw and axe, save chainsaw for really big stuff, all of which I mostly scrounge off the side of the road and beyond my land on an abandoned part of a tree farm, no vehicle so I ride bike 6 miles one way to town but on the way back it’s all up hill to my area, a higher elevation. I’m busy organizing extra gear to promote a less constricting space. Hopefully gonna do a little canning, meat and food stamp veggies. I collect rain water and walk about a mile total to a fresh spring piped from the ground.
It can really be awesome, I’m lucky to have great neighbors for visits at time plus food and town of course. Isolation is really the hardest, even with my dog. Animals all around, little people, stars and Milky Way a time nights, coyotes howling, bears hangin around etc

There are two traveler schools of thought: grab the pack and go, and extensive preparatory research....You can guess which one I'm buried in, at the moment....

Welcome!!!!
So I had a bunch of free Metrolink tickets, so yesterday first I took Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, then used them to go all the way from Oceanside to Simi Valley (covering 150 miles in a day). I decided to stay with my SO again a couple of days as I came down pretty sick with cold and also need to buy some gear for the record breaking cold in CA. Soon enough I’ll head to Ventura and hitch from there!
Just over a month and a half until I plan to hit the road here in New Zealand. Figuring out what I need to store and what I need to sell. Anyone thats currently travelling got an Instagram? Looking to follow some fellow misfits in the mean time!
