The Chaff forum is provided here as a privilege for members to discuss way off-topic ... things ... unrelated to any of the forums above. These forum posts usually have nothing to with backpacking. Please, no commercial posts, NO SPAM, no "adult" content. Our standard Forum Guidelines apply here as well, but we give more latitude for thread drift.
