That's the least welcome welcome I've ever received.

It serves to remind that the ADV TORs are much like a public swimming pool -- you swim with everyone who shows up, whether you like it or not. Me, I don't like it.

Accordingly, insofar as my involvement is concerned, the public BBTOR has reached its end. I'm considering a private version, but one thing of which this past week has reminded me: TOR's seem to get in the way of riding.

If you don't belive that, check out the Georgia TOR, before and after.

Yo, Scott: lets go for a ride soon: the more sand the better!

Harold,

I regret that you didn't seem to understand the "old saying" I used.

Where I come from it's not derogatory....

Seems like drama abounds in this thread lately.

Interesting that the kid in the public swimming pool sporting the droopy, filthy diapers never quite gets that he, and he alone, is the issue.

Those interested in continuing a private verson of the BBTOR off ADV should contact me at halmc@halmc.com.

Well... That's yet another personal attack you've leveled at me Harold and I choose to let you just have a nice day. I've never been one to let some words on a computer screen upset me and I hope you find peace with all this one day.

I'll be right here on ADV having a good time and not minding what people say and do because the general good natured spirit of ADV and forums in general and their public nature suit me just fine.

Good...

I hope this episode is over and we can get back to the business of riding and talking about riding and leave the drama to soap operas.

Hmm. You seemed fine with it till you got a vacation for violating the cardinal rule.

Drop the sour grapes & keep playin'. I, for one, like having you around.

I must agree. I don't know what I might have done to alienate what I thought was a developing friendship with Harold but I am disappointed that, for some reason that is mysterious to me, it's degenerated to this.

It seems that people in the BBTOR have been on edge lately and it spoils everyone's fun when that happens.

I'm a forgive and forget kind of guy and have developed a pretty thick skin since I invented the internet years ago. Or was that Al Gore? I get confused in my old age.

Anyway... ADV is a collection of people from all walks of life that seem to have a common interest in adventure riding in its many forms and many of us are type A alpha male types.

There will inevitably be misunderstandings but letting things get one upset can ruin the experience.

WOW! That's the longest way around telling someone to get over it I've ever seen.
