So recently Stick was kind enough to tag me in a blog post, and lucky enough I had some free time to respond right away. Part of the task of responding was to find 11 (!) other bloggers to tag. To do this I tagged a bunch of BPL nerds whose contributions here I have appreciated or enjoyed.
Here's my post:
Here are all the BPL people I tagged:
2. Nick of Pop Up Backpacker
3. Craig of Sweeping the Garden
4. spelt ! of Equilibrium Sands
5. Max of Max the Cyclist
6. Mike of Ultralight Backpackin' Tips
7. Bob of Image Transactions
8. John of Hike Lighter
9. Jennifer of Backpacker PT
10. Virginia of Unbound Routes
11. Justin Baker, who has no blog, but should.
Please let me know if you don't want to be tagged or if you think I smell bad and that I am a jerk or whatever, and I will take you off the list and find a replacement. I figured this was easier than finding a bunch of emails and then sending out a mass email. I am guessing that not everyone will reply (e.g. Mike C.), but it's all good.
I suppose anyone else could reply to the questions I posed here if they so desired, including any of the tagged people.

It took me a minute to figure out why the hacker traffic had suddenly increased on my web site. But, that is why they invented strong passwords.

Cesar, I'm flattered. Plus I haven't done a meme in a long time. :)
FTR, I just recently split my blogging up to try to improve my writing and maintain a more consistent tone. Thinky stuff will be at Equilibrium Sands. Strictly hiking stuff is now at Spelt Was Here. I'll put the meme on the second one.May 24, 2014 at 4:07 pm #2105701
I have a theory that in a prior life, you were a "contractor" for the State Department (read CIA black ops) and orchestrated a proxy war that never made the news but unbeknownst to American and Soviet citizens, this proxy war is the unsung hero of the Cold War and scared the Glasnost into Gorbachev but sadly you are now targeted by some rogue KGB agents who, despite the fall of the USSR, have made it their life's mission to see to your demise thus forcing you to live under an alias.
While I would never want for your to reveal your true name, some history on your moniker would be interesting.May 24, 2014 at 4:22 pm #2105704
@jenmitolLocale: In my dreams....
aw, thanks!!! I guess I really, really need to start putting stuff on that blog then, eh?May 24, 2014 at 4:42 pm #2105709
Bob, many of us already know your special secret password. You know, through the clandestine efforts of Spelt and others, which was quietly shared with the rest of us. So if you get out of line, we might spam your site with lingerie ads and special sales for John Deere tractors and DeKalb corn seed. You don't want to mess with us. We can be evil, very evil.May 24, 2014 at 5:43 pm #2105721
Quite honestly: spelt is a variety of wheat and I was drinking a beer brewed from it when I made my account. The ! is just because I needed something to put in the second field.May 25, 2014 at 4:27 am #2105763
So if you'd have been drinking a different beer and your mood were slightly different, then you could be:
;) Any way it rolls, I like "spelt !"May 25, 2014 at 7:52 am #2105770
Well it's good to know that any and all KGB death squads WON'T FIND ANY CIA HERE! NOPE! NO ONE HERE BUT US DIRTBAG BACKPACKERS! (wink wink)May 25, 2014 at 9:26 am #2105793
My "Q" and my "TS" expired long ago. But I still remember….May 26, 2014 at 10:39 am #2105995May 27, 2014 at 4:47 am #2106148
spelt !, thanks for the link/tag to my site in your new post on stealth camping! Glad to hear it was useful :)May 27, 2014 at 6:05 am #2106160
Thanks for tagging me Spelt! and I like the new blog. Looks like a great way to showcase your photography, which is great btw.
I'll start working on my response later today.May 28, 2014 at 12:50 pm #2106617
