Point taken. I guess that's why they're sometimes called "emoticons".

Re: Smiley suggestions for bpLite.

Do you have a link to any of the suggested smileys ? No, I don't have links because I suspect that most of what we are looking for doesn't exist. I have never seen a smiley with a backpack. :o Obviously, there are a lot of fun smilies out there like the dancing banana. If anyone has one they want a...

Re: entry for march

Zelph, I can't tell the difference between Daren's ION stove and a regular ION stove . The Turbo V8 looks a little taller but basically the same as well. The one big difference I see compared to the picture linked in my previous paragraph is that Daren's stove looks great. Very clean and professional.

Re: keeping it all down

I use the Ti stakes from BackpackingLight. 6-packs from REI are $20.00 and the 6-packs from BackpackingLight are $15.00 or $13.50 for members. $15-$13 seems reasonable to me. I do think it's easier for the skewer type stakes to get pulled out from the ground or spin in place compared to some other s...

Re: TeePee

I think I've seen just about everything the internet has to offer regarding tipis (teepees). My friend had a lightweight 2 person tipi that I stayed in on a camping trip and that got me thinking that maybe I would make one. He ended up selling the tipi tent and gave me the first chance to buy it. I'...

Re: back scratcher

If you meant to say "couldn't" instead of "could" you should be able to change that yourself with the edit button. If the typo is in the thread title, then that would be a job for one of the mods. But the title looks fine to me. Also, not that I care but since we're talking about spelling errors, "t...
