    Humm, I never had issues with anyone on the trail or at an event and truthfully, no really serious issues here. Maybe a lack of understanding or something similar, but not too serious.

    One of my theories or sayings I try to keep in place is, "Don't sweat the small stuff, and it is all small stuff!"
    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    I agree with all of this. I believe you are correct when you say, " ... it is all small stuff!"

    I don't think squirrelcache was implying the issues would lead to extreme measures. Sometimes something like an event can be improved upon by knowing what "small stuff" certain cachers enjoy or don't enjoy. While at events, I avoid any talk about numbers with the power cachers and try and lean the conversation towards caches or subjects that we both enjoy. We've learned not to poke fun of southerners in front of some people, we've learned whether or not to discuss golf, beer, guns, and nanos with others.

    I find it amazing that with the very diverse group cachers are - from all walks of life and very varied interests and beliefs that we get along as well as we do. I do think that the forums help us understand each other and help us act accordingly when we do meet on the trail or elsewhere.

    Does it really help people get along outside of the forums or do some people hide behind their computer and act differently in person?

    I think some people act differently, and if you call avoiding some subjects at an event while not avoiding them here, then I do act different. I don't think an event is a place to have such debates, they are more geared toward having fun and enjoying the day. Now, if you want to have an event or get together just to debate any issues, I'm up for that too!

    I like to think that most of us are true. It's very hard for most people to hide their true self month after month in a forum. I have met many people I have known for an extended time online in chat or forums before meeting them, and very few are not as I perceived them to be.

    Default You're too funny!

    . We've learned not to poke fun of southerners in front of some people, we've learned whether or not to discuss golf, beer, guns, and nanos with others.

    Gee, golf and guns....seems I used those as an example about competition just yesterday. Beer, southerners, love 'em both. What could be better then somebody from Kanapolis driving a Chevy with Budweiser written all over it at 200 miles an hour.

    I will express one thing that I am pretty sure about as it relates to computers and internet forums. When we are behind the keyboard we often say things that would never be said face to face.

    There is something about the keyboard that emboldens some folks.

    I'll give you a good example. Brdad and me. On the computer we go back and forth, jab at each other and so forth.

    Once we got the air a little bit cleared we got along quite well at events and such and I even went and did his battleship cache.

    I think there is something about keyboards that can bring out somethings that you never see in public. JMOHO on this one!

    It is funny, I was thinking of that post when I was typing, but in reality, the southerners and golf section was the only part I acquired from you. In fact, I wanted to incorporate my favorite golf quote, "Golf courses are just a waste of prime geocaching real estate", but could not fit it in there (so thanks for that opportunity!). The beer idea was from Hiram and WRW, the guns from Dave1976, and nanos from Ekidokai. But either way, I was thinking of ya!

    And don't get me started on auto racing! It would be so much better without the competition and the rushing!
