My wife likes Summitpost, but she does not like the forums. She thinks most of the forum posters are nuts and that there is too much ego involved (maybe she is on to something). She has her own profile and may become active again.

I have spent too much time on the forums though and on SP, but I have cut back much in recent months for other reasons (which will be explained in my next trip report).

Anyway, my wife helps me choose which photos to add to my pages and trip reports and edits most of my submissions (especially trip reports) before I post them.

She's a real sweety and I love her very much. She is my best friend.

I have climbed some really remote mountains, have been on some fairly hard climbs and adventures and have climbed with literally hundreds of people, but my favorite climbing partners are my wife and kids. I really couldn't ask for better climbing partners than them. Before my wife and I met, she hadn't ever even been on an easy hike and now we have been on so many adventures together and will continue to do so (though our traveling days are mostly over). Being married is the best thing in the world.

No, I get even with my quilting sites....


That is pretty funny. I remember once when you said you make rugs out of climbing ropes.

Let's just say it did not help my case any that the forum thread titled "Oh, Sarah, baby!" periodically raises its silly head.

Yeah, I am on the receiving end now and then of anti-SP spousal sentiment. This weekend, for instance, I asked him to note the mileage we had travelled on a dirt road. The spousal rebuttal (in snarky tone): Why, you need this for summitpost?

He also refers to my hobby (summitting peaks in general) as 'Your stupid rocks.'

Heheheh, it's all good. I can pick on his Crimson Tide or TN Titans or USAF Falcons, too. All in the name of love.

This sport, independent of SP, can indeed be rough on some relationships. SP, at times, makes an easy target for the spouse.

PS - wasting time at airport bar waiting for delayed flight. God bless the Blackberry! (See earlier post re: SP on smartphones.)

Aaaaaa..

I was under the impression that rocks ARE STUPID, because they are inanimate objects.

Then again, stupid IS what stupid does.

Hahahahaha!...I guess you wouldn't want possible rain to damage your bike in the long run...... I like the arm around the bike!
@Scott-
its nice to feel that way about your wife. I know my favorite person to climb with is my husband. Really he's the only person I think can take my sometimes blunt point of view on a hike or climb or know when I'm being sarcastic. Other people I guess I give the benefit of social politeness to and who needs that when your sweating up a giant hunk of rock and getting dust in your eyes?!

Dunno, but since I spent about 1/10th the amount of time on SP that she does on Farcebook, she has nothing to complain about.

The question is always the same when she walks by and sees the home page on the screen: "planning a hike?"

Or incredulous after once noticing I had spent nearly 3 hours working on a new page: "you're still working on a report for that Summit whatever!"

Seems like SummitPost can't catch a break lately. Vilified as "Porn", its very existence questioned under "Is SP Doomed", and now this thread. Well at least Montana Matt prettied up this (forum) part of her corpus.

Not to get away from the thread, but what does SP look like in female form and would this help or hinder your relationship with your wife or SO?
