    Perhaps I could have left out the grow up part but I would offer the guy a cup of coffee and see if there is a civil way to a solution. Funny, that offering up a cup of joe one gets labeled as weak, a liberal or both, which is about as far from reality as it can get. Stewart said it. Don't assume because someone is polite that they will not stand up for themselves or others. I live in the hills of Skagit County where people are polite, friendly and quite capable of taking care of themselves.

    Yup, can't blame me for that one.

    Back on track...the more I think about this both the passer through and perceived property owner acted, or are acting inappropriate.

    Big boys and girls should TALK more, bitch less and keep their fangs, claws and weapons of extermination put away for these minor disagreements.

    anyone up for a beer?

    You DO?

    I got the latest Patagucci catalog the other day. I could buy week's worth of Old Navy or Banana Republic boxers for the price of two or three Patagonia ladies' briefs! Even the lovely and talented Mrs. Lufkin thinks they're over-the-top expensive.

    Let's see: guns, bad-ass talk, ladies underwear, rudeness. So much material, four possible directions. Naw, hand me that popcorn (oh, yeah: please).

    I did a review of technical underwear for the magazine a few years ago and never turned back. Several guys I know swear by the Patty'G boxers as the be-all end-all. I kid you not. We love us some Patagonia "base layers".

    I would not have broken a sweat over the tromp-through, though may have politely said something. No need for any big conflict though.

    Have you tried them?

    Not ladies (unless that's your fancy ;) ), but technical base layers can make a HUGE difference in comfort. I would equate them to about 1/2 the step from neoprene to breathable waders.

    I've had it happen to me, but I've also been on the other side.

    I've had to go through someone's camp because they decided to set-up on the only safe access within 500yds in either direction.

    I think etiquette isn't so much about what we do/don't do, but how we deal with breaches of etiquette. Often a more instructive, less combative informing can serve as a more helpful means.

    Lastly, it's been my experience a lot more fresh-to-the-outdoors people are camping/fishing this year. Maybe it's the economy (more people enjoying nearby attractions), but I can't even count the number of brand-spanking-new tent/sleeping bag/stove set-ups I've seen being put up at 11PM without a lantern. :D

    The key is to buy Pattigucci stuff on sale. Just got a brand spankin' new set of quick dry nylon fishing pants for half price; the only price I buy their stuff at. Yeah, Pattigucci silkweight boxers are great for fishing and the only kind I take when traveling.

    Oh, and the guy tromping thru camp, just off the bastard and move camp before he begins to stink much. I'm particular about my camp layout, and no-f'ing-body better walk thru the space where I cook.

    So when did under pants become techincal? Look under pants serve one purpose and one purpose only and that is to protect your "outer pants" from getting a healthy dose of shit stains. I just go to Wal-Mart every couple of years to get brand new shit filters. It's a lot cheaper. Since we turned to the subject of under pants.:thumb:

    Salmo, what if some guy just walked through your cooking area with an attitude, but on his way through handed you a fine glass of wine? Yeah, thought so. :)

    In the 40s John Huelsdonk pioneered the use of chamois shorts under 4 layers of wool. Some called him a pussy but they named a triathlon after him.
