    Thanks for that! Now I need some examples of what gizmos that people are talking about that are so essential for camping! [LOL]

    I do agree with you. Some of those abbreviations are ok but some can be a little bit hard to figure out!

    Look at popupgizmos.com to see what they are. I just ordered 3 for my hybrid. I tried the foil emergency blankets and binder clips before.

    Popup Gizmos also run ads right here on the Portal. Pictures of what they are can often bee seen at the top of the page.

    I'm used to the Jeep/4x4 community, where DW = Death Wobble, which is never a good thing. LOL

    I use a few abbreviations(acronyms, actually, if I recall correctly), like LOL, LMAO, IIRC, and a few others, but I prefer to fully write and read grammatically correct, properly punctuated, and correctly spelled sentences.

    Yes, you will see me posting "ZJ" throughout my posts.
    ZJ is a Jeep model designation(you all know of Jeep's CJ designation), and not an acronym.
    A ZJ is a 1993 to 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I own 2 of them('93 [TV] & '94).

    Anyway....
    There are many posts I read and just cringe as I read tha mistaks in gramur speling and punk chewayshun

    Yeah, every forum seems to have their own list of acronyms that mean nothing to the uninitiated (like myself). I figured out most but only after scratching my head a lot. I read through all 7 pages of these... and while helpful, maybe the original poster can gather them all up and put them on the first post? Might be easier to track down rather than having to read the entire thread to see if the one you are looking for has been explained.

    You got my vote. I find DW,DH,DD,DS etc. nauseating as HELL.
    OK, I'm on the list now.

    I always wondered where the heck was the list of acronyms for this site.... I knew it had to be there, I'm glad someone dedusts it every month or so.
    Here are another ones I didn't see on the previous pages....
    ETA = Estimated Time of Arrival
    PITA = Pain In The #[email protected]%

    Love this thread !

    I definitely knew what pita stood for. I had a cat and named her Pita and she was.

    Stupid
    Popup
    Up
    Tricks
    usually a mistake that:
    a. damages the pup
    b. damages your pride
    c. provokes gales of laughter from your neighbors.
    A good (common) example is forgetting to put the rear stabilizers down and everyone going to the back of the pup. Wheelie time!
