The truth is, I have yet to do any climbing in the Cascade Range. A few years ago, I was looking up some beta on a route, but never got to it. I've been lurking in and out, reading TR's, and route descriptions, but a while ago I started selling some gear on MP and thought why not list on several forums and cast a bigger net. I loved climbing the Elephants Perch last month. I thought I'd make a comment.
Now I will (sincerely) extend the olive branch to Daemon. I honestly ain't out to scam you (or anyone). I am
jumping to conclusions when I say this, but maybe Daemon was burned in the past by a bad deal. I was burned once when I sold some stuff on ebay. Maybe that is why he/she has been extremely skeptical and not cut me any slack. If so, no hard feelings. If I'm wrong, sorry.
Sincerely, I was just trying to sell my stuff. I really don't have anything to hide. I lost the cable to connect my camera to my laptop. I can't move the pictures. I wish I could because people tend to pay more and buy more often if they can see the product. As you say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Now will you be honest? Was this really about the lack of pictures?
Why did you never make an offer?
Why did you look for the bad? I never said $21 shipping?
Why couldn't you let it go when everyone else did?
By the way YOU REALLY PISSED ME OFF. That is why I deleted everything on MP. Its not like me to loose my cool. I typed some harsh things, then felt regret, so I deleted my unkind words. (Sincerely, I never should have said them). I lowered my price out of anger because everyone was just slamming me with where they could get a better deal.
"I'll show them!" I thought...stupid.
In the time that has past since yesterday I was thinking I might get to that Cascade route after all, and I'll wish I'd a kept the pickets. I think I'd regret selling them for $15ea, when I paid $35ea back in 2005. So in that light, I will keep them. After all these years I thought they'd a kept their value. That's why I tried to sell them for $30 plus $7 to ship. Not a bad deal, $37 for pickets.
Hey, I'm sorry. Now you can accept my apology and move on, or stay bent.
Kevin (I'm good now.)
Sleep well every one, see you in 6 years.
Oh if anyone (not daemon) is interested, I've got a headlamp still on the free gear thread. Screemer and chalk are gone.http://www.mountainproject.com/v/the-free-gear-thread/107297195__9
