Why I Hike
F A Q
Mountain Towns - Vail
Over the years, I've received comments from various people from all over the state regarding my comments and opinions about their home town, but this comment about Vail is by far the most vicious email I have ever received regarding any of the Web properties I own and maintain.
Subject: Comments from Hiking In Colorado Date: Tue, 16 Apr 2002 14:43:20 -0600 (MDT) From: XXXXXXX@DESTINATIONTRAVEL.COM <== email withheld To: firstname.lastname@example.org Location: VAIL USA Name: CHRIS XXXXXX <== name withheld to prevent embarrassment WHERE DO YOU LIVE? LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT. YOU HATE VAIL, YET LEADVILLE IS A FAVORITE TOWN OF YOURS. YOU MUST BE A BLAST TO HANG OUT WITH. THERE SO MUCH TO DO IN LEADVILLE. YOU CAN SMOKE CRACK BEHIND SAFEWAY, OR GO TO WILD BILLS FOR A BURGER A STABBING AND MAYBEE EVEN A GANG RAPING. THEN IF YOU'RE STILL NOT SATISFIED MAYBEE YOU CAN SCALE ONE OF LEADVILLES MANY BARB WIRE BARRICATED RIVERS FOR A TOUCH OF LEAD OR ZINC POISIONING!!! PEOPLE DON'T LISTEN TO THIS GUY AND DON'T HATE VAIL BECAUSE OF OUR WORLD FAMOUS SKIING, CAMPING, JEEPING, RAFTING, NUMEROUS GOLD MEDAL TROUT STREAMS, OR BOOMING JOB MARKET. AND YES, AS YOU CAN TELL WE DO HAVE ATTITUDES WHAT CAN I SAY, WE LIVE IN ONE OF BEST PLACES ON EARTH.
This email only makes me wonder, if Vail is such a great place, why is this person so filled with hate?
