One of my regular readers, who goes by the moniker “Swamp Rat” made the following comments to my first post about Shantyboat Supply Source(s). For those who are too lazy or just plain not curious enough to click into the comments sections I’ll repost Swamp Rat’s comments here:
Old Salt thank you so much. I started a forum for those who were interested in shantyboat living because it was so difficult to find simple and basic living ideas on a shantyboat anywhere on the internet. You have started providing the info I need therefore I no longer have to take the time to maintain that website. So… I deleted it. Look forward to coming here to see what new and creative ideas you have posted.
I know you are doing all the work and all I am doing is reading and looking at links. But your time is greatly appreciated by me and I look forward to coming here to see what else you have found to post about.
Thanks!!!!!!!!! An OldSalt fan.
I’m sorry you stopped your own project but flattered that you like what I’ve been posting. It’s not easy keeping the posts current. It’s not so much that I have a problem coming up with ideas. They’re really a dime a dozen, and most of them pop up just before I doze of to sleep which, of course, means that I have to get up and start writing them down. Thank goodness I’m retired so it doesn’t matter that I’m up at 2 a.m. pounding away on the ‘puter since I don’t have to be anywhere when I wake up.
Okay, went to the link and have to say that Lehman’s doesn’t even come close to Cabela’s. Sorry OldSalt. Doesn’t mean that others can’t see otherwise that is just my opinion. Here is a link to Cabela’s.
Lot’s of good stuff to look at on that link, thanks.
OldSalt have you ever thought about starting a forum? Where others can add topics, pics. The reason I ask is there is no where on this blog to be able to ask certain questions or ask for advice unless you hijack a blog topic. Not cool to do that. Just wondering.
I have though about, and rejected the idea of starting a forum. It’s bad enough trying to moderate two blogs. I am a member of a couple of forums but have to admit I don’t follow them anywhere near as religiously as I do someone’s blog. I also find that forums attract a lot of “experts” who yap out of their assholes and express opinions that really don’t amount to a hill of beans and often are completely wrong.
On the other hand, as I said in an earlier post, I am wide open to people who, like yourself, have ideas and/or questions on subjects germain to this blog. You/they can post them as comments or send them to me via email. I will be happy to post them as I did your comments, and if you have an “article” you’d like to post as Ken Hume has done, I will put them up here with attribution.
Again, I’m flattered that you read and enjoy this blog.
