Another Girl

Postby Poodle Jewel » Wed Jan 02, 2008 9:24 pm

Hi Frilly, i know your post is a couple of months old,but i have only just joined. I am also a single woman,i used to camp all the time 15 or so years ago and am getting back into it now with my two fur kids (poodles). :) Being on my own i always make sure i camp in places that are supervised or have a ranger around,years ago i would go bush but i think it has changed and it is too risky,anyway you never know who else is travelling the same way some times you can buddy up with other travellers.Best of luck.
The Lord is my shepard,i shall not want......only sometimes.

With your new title Troy, I am a wee bit concerned about attending any of your gatherings.

I agree , I think it may put a lot of people off attending outings .Not a good joke when your trying to get family orientated group together.

I fail to see why ... it's all in good fun and nothing meant by it.

Newcomers might not necessarily see it that way though Scol. And whilst I was only joking in what I said, others may not see it that way.

Ozzy changed it as a joke. I have PM him to ask him to change it back.

I apologise if it offended.

I understand and thought that was the way you had taken it ... but if people are offended by something as basic as that then I reckon they need to go out camping more, or maybe just get out. Things like that are very basic when compared to some bun fights that occur on the 'net ... :shock:

Troy ... no need for you to apologise ... the whole thing was in jest and that was the way it was taken by most.

It is quite amazing what some people will be offended by these days and how 'politically correct' this society has become. From my point of view it has all become way over the top.

I reckon we should just be allowed to get on with it and not worry about all the nonense that seems to be going on.

Whilst it is probably a good idea to remove the title it is not me who is offended Troy.

I did not get offended by what was written ,I thought it was funny at the time but it just went to far and thought that may put people off .
Just think about it as a newcomers may see it , camping with a group that you dont know ,you can take your family camping anywhere and meet nice people ,why risk camping with camping .com. Putting people off posting stuff that may put doubts in peoples minds is not going to help.

If I was a newcomer and saw it I'd have a laugh. If a newcomer saw it and was offended then they shouldn't join up. I wouldn't want to go camping with someone who couldn't laugh at a simple, non ofensive statement.

Even if they didn't go camping and just contributed to the forum would I have to watch my p's and q's just because they might get offended.

Why should the majority (who have been here for a fair while) have to change for just one person (who hasn't joined up yet becuase apparently no-one is offended by the title) on the offchance they get offended?

Plain and simple.
