Am I the only one who thinks LoJ is more outdated than Windows 98’
Probably.

There is no other site like it. I contains ever named peak and ranked peak in the US, plus every peak mentioned in a guidebook. These are complete with maps, land ownership status, etc.
Interestingly, I suspect LOJ appeals to both the “List-Lover” and “Mountain Hipster” alike (more on this: https://www.foxintheforest.net/which-mo ... r-are-you/). Not only is it a great way to keep track of every obscure peak you’ve ever done, it has some great features for identifying and locating all the ranked peaks in a given area and has info on peaks almost no one has heard of. And before Candace66 pulls up my LOJ profile, it’s going to look like I falsified my records and climbed a ridiculous number of peaks in one or two days because I didn’t know what I was doing. I promise, I’ll fix this. You’ve reminded me though CaptCO, I do need to update my LOJ list.

You should f**k off and mind your own business 8) oh wait that’d make me a politically incorrect hypocrite.. not allowed in this day and age. Way to take away from a thread because you feel your senseless opinion is needed
If this place is really 'Like A Soap Opera' like d_baker has stated, then you shouldn't be here. You already said f*ck off to the whole enterprise. Pretty lame to renege on that. You can't just fake your own death. What kind of Soap Opera twist is that?
12ersRule, that was like 10+ years ago.
We're now in the reality tv stardom. Or tiktok...I really don't know anymore.

It is amazing how a post about a woman dying has become this ... there are some real class acts in this group.
