My 5000th post

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I thought it might be appropriate to make my 5000th post a quality one instead of for something of jest or seemingly worthless dribble that some can be. (some might think this one is) Anyhow, I've been here for so long many might think I'd have had way more posts by now. Heck, some have been here half the time and have way more than me. These days find me not much interested about what goes on here anymore. I don't even surf the entire site anymore. I just check my subscribed threads and breeze the new threads and if nothing is of interest, I'm checking out a different site. I think lethargic might be my feelings about Epic Ski these days. I don't find interest in answering the same old questions that get asked multiple times. You know the ones. Which ski is right for me? What length, what brand? The helmet wars, the fat ski wars, the carver wars, the polls about everything. Becomming a moderator was good for me cause it kept my interest level up near the top. i enjoyed that immensely for a period. Made some good friends there, made some improvements in areas of Epic Ski that make me proud. That was my real goal of becomming a Mod. Improving the site while maintaining the integrity of what made this place so popular. Quickly found out you can't please everyone so you might as well please yourself. But, personality clashes and differences of dissagreements, not opinions found me being too much of a Rebel for the direction taken by others. I felt it was better to just become a regular Joe. Of course I'm still a Bear at heart but just don't have the heart anymore. What keeps me here is what attracted me to begin with. People who have a passion for skiing and Winter Sports as I do and relating to the feelings and thoughts shared by those who have become good friends over the years. The good people who I've met in person and had the pleasure to enjoy their company. And those who I've had cyber friendships with who's posts are always interesting reguardless of what it is or the topic is, I'll read their posts anyhow. And I hope they read mine. While I really don't care who thinks my posts are worth reading, I do hope that people have enjoyed them as much as I've enjoyed the thought and personality I've put into them. The honesty, sincereity, levity, and heart I put into my posts is what I'm all about. Along with the PITA exists a proud Veteran of this country but also a Revolutionist who thrives for reform but yet is set in the ways of yesterday. A true romantic who would rather live the days of sex, drugs and rock-n-roll than roll with the changes of today's cultures. You can expect the next 5000 posts to come a little slower. But, they'll keep on comming, the bad spelling, the run on sentences and paragraphs. You're stuck with me.

You are not a Bear...but to a lot of people..the Bear. I will say the site needs you more than you need the site. You damn well better stay around.

Ha! 5001...I knew you would give in.

I always enjoy seeing what my opinion should be, even if its hidden in an endless paragraph.

Hope Thanksgiving treats you with some proper turkey and something proper to drink this year.

5000 eh? Happy post count and thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and the work you did as a mod. I hope to finally meet and ski with you at Holiday.

FLAWED!

If we use a woman's warped sense of logic, if a line in a paragraph is false, it makes the whole statement false. I don't think there's any 'regular Joe' about you, except for what's in your morning mug.:

Happy 5000 and 5001. You are appreciated probably more than you know.

Lars - You welcomed me here, I don't know how many years ago now.

I don't post a bunch (obviously), but I'm here often and have always read your posts with interest, and a great deal of respect.

I'm glad you're sticking around, and will continue to read your posts. Heck, I've even gotten reasonably good at taking in huge amounts of ideas, with nary a break.

I have long appreciated your emotion, Lars, and your willingness to be open about your feelings. Way, way too rare in our culture.

^^^ I agree. Lars, I'm new here. When I was lurking & looking thru old threads, your contributions continually showed up & glared at me. I love reading what you have posted. I haven't had parents since I was 20 something, so I really enjoy those who are just a tad bit older, more experienced, & wiser than I. Those that are willing to share themselves & who they are, what they have learned & just exactly what they think about all that. That mentor wisdom thing that everyone should have or seek throughout life. You are one of those, you always give food for thought & a perspective one may not have looked at before. Your thoughts are appreciated very much. Thank you for being & sharing who you are !

HEY Lars, how come you are at 5k and I can't crack the 200 mark? I think AC has been docking me for being awol.

BUT, congrats on your 5k. I'm glad I got to read the first 1k, and hope to read a few of the next 1k.

Hey, you going west for the next GTG?

I continue to find your posts thoughtful and well reasoned regardless of whether we share the same views on a particular subject or not. Thanks for all of your contributions to Epic Ski.:::::

Regular Joe doesn't seem to suit you Lars. Just be yourself not what you think people might wish you to be.
I have countered a few of your posts yet have a high respect for your opinions and person. I like the rebel in you. it speaks well of your convictions that you put your heart behind them.
You be you and the world can just deal with it. This is why so many care for and find friendship with you.
If I were to see you I know i would be greeted by a warm smile and a friendly handshake . Maybe we will this winter when you find yourself near.
