    AT Thru-hiker Survey is now up and Running

    All,

    I hope everyone is doing well. I've got my AT Thru-hiker Survey up and running now. If you've attempted a thru-hike of the AT, could you please take a few moments and fill out this survey for me. The data will be used for my dissertation, and from early returns, looks like it'll be the largest data set on thru-hikers ever conducted!

    Here's the link with background info and what-not.

    Thanks in advance,

    Technically this does not belong in the forum. I hate to bring that up, but Neo left because of his photo thing so...

    Speaking as someone who's made the mistake of getting off topic and making a bit of an idiot of myself in the process, you're right.

    Just curious...has the subject of creating an "Off Topic" section of the Hammock Forum ever been considered. It seems like it would solve the only real problem I've seen here. Another forum I visit quite often has an Off Topic section which solved the same and much more rampant problem.

    D'oh! Now why didn't anyone think of that sooner?

    Probably would get more participation over on WhiteBlaze.
    When it goes over their heads, it really doesn't matter how high it is.

    It looks like it's already posted there too.

    If this discussion is about 'on topic' threads, there are several others that don't belong as well: Mother's day thread, 'My Sewing Machine' thread, and 'Hinterlands' thread. I'm not of the opinion that NO non-hammock discussion is possible, but if the line is drawn accurately, those don't qualify, IMO.

    I don't know that I'd go that far on this one, Angrysparrow. The 'My Sewing Machine" thread very easily fits into the DIY category. At the last SEHHA Hangout in April, I got my first good look at DIY gear, leading me to a subsequent "infection" of the DIY virus. A large part of DIY is having and being able to use a sewing machine. My thread was in regard to obtaining a sewing machine, and, therefore, falls into a DIY thread. If you can't discuss sewing machines here, then we may as well not have a DIY forum at all. With regard to your comment, I respectfully dissent.

    Hey, I respect dissent! I'm not even of the opinion that there shouldn't be a little off-topic banter, but if the letter of the law is enforced, I thought that talking about 'getting' a sewing machine is off topic where 'using' one wouldn't be. Also, please don't get the impression that I was singling anyone out; just furthering the ongoing discussion.
