IMO there is nothing wrong if people want to stay in there own little group and run private trips, that is there choice and there are plenty of reasons for doing that, personally I think they are missing out on a lot of what this forum can offe......
Wow we agree again Matt
I haven't run a public one for a while, but probably will again soon.
Just for the record Garry, you'll always get an invite on my (private) trips mate, and yeah there is nothing wrong with that as long as there is still enough public ones.
Sometimes I post private ones, so I can invite friends, with the intention to make it public when it doesn't fill, but they always fill, so they never appear on the public area.
The other option is to piss off your mates who want to go on your trips and post public ones.
But like I said earlier as long as you do a few public ones a year then if everyone did that there would be plenty of trips to go around.
With that being said there are a lot more members now and more trips running already, with the warm weather coming I'm predicting a record number of trips this summer.
Great site Kelvin!!!
BTW Matt since July there has only been three private trips posted, and one got postponed (which you know about).
So contrary to popular belief, there are very few private trips.
