    Default Hi I'm Sunshine

    Uhhh... I've been lurking (not really though, I hardly ever come to this site) for a couple years now. I figured i'm over half way done with my hike (i'm Delaware Water Gap) and might as well post at least once on the forums. Oh and the "who's leading the pack" thread is pretty lame. Can't a moderator clean it up or something.

    Well, I used to think these spitting contests were lame, also, but lately I've found that they are pretty entertaining. This change occurred about the time I stopped posting to them myself.

    Default she's a thru-hiker

    give her(guessing) a break, lots of pressure out there.
    anyway Sunshine, welcome to the forum, i bet you can contribute a lot of hard earned experience to us all.
    Start out slow, then slow down.

    Hi Sunshine, I hope things are going well. You must be in pretty good shape by now. My question is....Did I meet you at Rocky Bald in NC in March? I met a bunch of thrubies, but I was too cold to write down their names. I took a picture of one girl and her smile was as bright as sunshine and I thought maybe that it was you. Have a great hike and may God bless you with good weather and great views. Hiker formerly known as Bear Bait II.

    Perhaps you're right, but I'm the kind of person that tends to call em as I see em and it seems the lame thing here is opening a first thread with criticism and telling our moderators how to do their job.

    Perhaps Sunshine was having a bad day that day. HOpe it gets better for her/him and future contributions can be less negative.

    OK. so that was not a good play for a freshman quarterback to run and you lost a few yards. Forget about it and throw deep on 2nd. Happy Hiking and Welcome.

    (Might I suggest you bash Bill Bryson on your second post.)

    Sorry guys, it was a stupid first post. I was still a little drunk from trail days.

    Yes I am a man!!! There maybe lots of people over the years w/ the name sunshine, but so far I am the only male

    I got off the trail in vernon NJ to spend a little time home. I gotta work a little, i've spent way over my planned budget. I should be back on the trail in a week or so. By then I imagine the majority of the pack will be closer.

    Sorry again

    Sunshine
