Don’t be that way t…Forums traffic kinda rolls with the weather…Nice weather, people get outside and by the time they make it inside they might not even log on so we get no traffic…Crappy weather, what else is there to do so we get hi traffic…

Agree totally 247, if its nice out the last place I want to be is stuck in front of a computer… besides the site is just a cool place to share stories and photos and talk about the great outdoors.. no competition needed… ;0)

Totally understand, I am actually business analyst in an internet support area and I travel quite a bit for business as well, just in the big cities, not much opportunities for outdoors photos unless it is on the weekends and days off and that is MY time.  I think the fact that anyone that posts and shares stories and photos is a great thing.  We all like to see and hear things we don’t otherwise have the opportunity to see on our own.  My statement about the competition was merely that if a particular post does not get an immediate reply that it should not be taken personally, or cause anyone to feel left out.  Most of the people on here I take it are outdoorsmen and women, and with the weather being nice.. they are probably just enjoying just that.. the outdoors and doubtful it is intentional that someone would just not reply, the “never again” post was somewhat confusing as to what exactly you meant. I think the site is a pretty friendly group of folks and dont see anyone would mean to cause any hurt feelings by not posting. From what I have seen everyone has enjoyed your photos. ;0)

I KNOW we all enjoy any outdoor pics, ESPECIALLY wild turkey pics!  Please keep em coming Thrms, i thoroughly enjoy all of your pics, just too lazy to comment on them sometimes!  The truth is, sometimes i make a quick pass through HO when i get a quick minute at work and dont take the time to reply, but man does the 2 minute HO surf release some work tension!!

Thats pretty cool, I am actually going to Lousiville Ky in May to spend the night with a group at Waverly Hills
They have been to Bobby Mackeys, Ohio State Reformatory, Villisca, Mineral Springs and a few others, but I don’t believe we have been to Bartonsville yet.  I may have to hit you up for some info on a tour for the group.

I just tag along… because I am friends with the group.. waverly hills looks amazing.. it is pretty dang expensive unless you split it out with a group tho.. I hear they are going to remodel it to a hotel so they may not be doing the tours much longer.
