    Indeed , I had my scarey fun in the Cirque de Gavarnie in the Pyrenees , but it was a wake up call, but I went on to start training as a mountain guide eventually , but it became clear, the only people making money were the people dishing out the awards , but I became very competant as a climber , and have had some great fun in the mountains ! It is a very unforgiving enviroment but also very rewarding

    Bit dissapointed by how negative some are about the movie, atleast it was a movie about something real and poignant, however much they may have twisted it. Its too easy to say how careless he was or reckless, that was his idea of adventure, to go somewhat unprepared. Far too many big egos in this place for my liking. I thought for a 'hippy community' it would be more humble. To suggest your life is somehow better or more worthy is a bit cringe worthy really, i actually doubt that. Anyway its a great movie and particularly book for those that are humble enough to see beyond the sugar coating.

    If you can't handle our opinions, don't promote questioning our views. Fk off down the pub and get some drunk to agree with everything you wanna hear. It's our time as well you know.

    I dont expect asking for opinions on a movie that premotes going your own way, to be so negative. But thats ok, atleast im not as rude as you

    True but your are more disrespectful. Ok I get it, the film flicked your switch. We have told you what we think of it. It's no big deal. At no point was any digs made about your strong affinity with the film. I should have said "yeh man, as far as films go and of the very few films I've actually watched in my life, that's a film I enjoyed sitting down for." Now I feel like I've been censored just to stroke your ego!

    At no point have i been disrespectful you might want to re read your posts. I dont have a strong affinity with the film was just sharing what a cool film it is based on it simply being a bit different from mainsteam films. You strike me as exceedingly negative, always up there with mr kipling. Stroke me ego, are you having a giraffe mate? Ive been nothing but polite get over yourself.

    Hippy site or not,this is a public forum and what makes a forum interesting is that people have different viewpoints and we can learn a lot from them,whether or not we agree. Open minded debate and the ability to take it on the chin is essential towards us benefiting from them.
    As for your comment about people thinking they are better being wrong,well that I definately disagree with as I think that to create a great reality one has to aim to be better and sometimes the best to make it work.
    Am I better than everyone else ? I certainly try to be so !
    Nothing wrong with that at all as long as it is not based in a completely egotistical way and one uses that betterment to the betterment of others.

    If you think that it is a cool film,we are happy for you. if you want to share that film with others because you see good message in it,then that is great too. But do not feel like your nose is out of joint because someone-somepeople on a forum have different opinions.

    A.W You make some valid and interesting points that make a lot of sense,but I did find the fck off down the pub comment a tad harsh all the same

    Point taken internet child. I Probably felt a need to smash a smokedglass brain prison. Folk can make adventure unachievable, unthinkable, unobtainable for those less free spirited. Blaming others who would "frown" when we step away from conformity, is "not" enough reason to stop it happening. A Tramp wondering the lanes of the UK is as free a man as is any. Differentisgood frowned on our invited difference in our right to reply. The fk off was a slip of a Yorshiremans tongue. I apologise for that.

    I could see exactly where you were coming from,and agree hundred percent,though I dont think the poster really realized that he was stepping "into the wild" !!

    No Appologies needed for me as I dont give a shit,but very gentlemanly of you to offer one to Differentisgood and I hope that he will accept it with dignity and accept the post for what it was,which was a defence to our freedom of speech and thought rather than I personal attack (I think).

    The nature of any forum,people have different opinions,disagree and are disagreeable at times.There are many views on here that are not very 'hippy' like and plenty of people who are not remotely 'hippy'in their views in the trad sense of what hippy means but then we get into the 'what is a hippy' discussion which ends up getting long and boring and no one ever agrees.This isnt really a hippy site its just a forum on which there are some hippys and some nice people and not so nice.I dont particularly like it or some of its members -and they dont like me I could give a fuck-but its better than many other forum sites i use.You have to take things as you find and not too seriously.

    Dont take it to heart and dont let it /them change who you are.Other peoples views, opinions of you,what you do, who you are, or what you like (on here or in the real world) are all completely irrelevant.
    What counts is your life and what you do with it,nothing else matters.....and as IC said, be and do the best you can, no one can ever fault or criticise you for that.
