Welcome

I've long since decided that activity isn't reflective of quality, IMO. There are lots of 14-18 yo's with lots of time and little maturity.

don't forget about the 60-80 year olds that post over-cautiously to everyone on here....and may always not be the best choice or decision for certain people....

Just something to keep in mind.

are you talking about Smitty here? I think he is one that gives good advice if you ask me. A lot of people here give awesome and accurate advice. some people say some far fetched stuff though about caution and safety a lot of the time though.

we seem to be bumping heads lately eh? sorry dude i thought you were referring to smitty as i think he is the only active poster in the 60-80 age range. i've been snaping at people lately...maybe i need to plant a tree or something?

I dont think were bumping heads?!?!


I was actually just referring to the posted comment ^ This guy is bashing on young enthusiasts, when a lot of the times they give good accurate info. AND, i was saying some people on here ACT like 60-80 year olds with the insanely cautious advice that they give. Smitty is old....but i think his info and advice is great to take into account. But this Kanwisch guy is bashing youngins for giving bad advice? im saying lots of the times the older guys dont give very good advice from the extreme caution they have either.

But ok, lets plant some trees
