    Post Holes vs. Snowshoe Tracks

    Just in time for the holidays it's our annual bare-booters vs. snowshoers rant and rave thread.

    I will be honest. I really just wanted to revive this brilliant anti-posthole video from Youtube. God bless the makers and whoever "posted" it here first. Genius.


    BTW: Save the trail for someone else (two cents spent).

    Be well,

    Spot on, summitseeker. Absolutely brilliant! Now we know the origin of that saying about dead kittens and postholes. What more need be said, except that if you don't care about making yourself tired, then you can at least wear them for the next hiker.

    I know who created the first video, but I will leave it to him to acknowledge credit.
    What do you mean he don't eat no meat? Ok, I'll do lamb.

    Might that be the same Jeremy who saw the Iberdrola wind turbines on Tenney Mtn and called them the Spanish Imposition? Clever lad.

    It is my pleasure.

    I am so glad to have brought this masterpiece back for those who have never seen it. It still makes me laugh every time.
