Perhaps 15-20 minutes per day here. I check a woodworking forum once or twice a year at most. Don't do FB, My wife lives on FB.

Is there a bwca.com app? I cruise this site at least a few times/week but don't follow many other forums

I'm on my computer quite a bit for my work so as the day goes on I'll jump over to a forum here and there and see what's up.

I look here every morning for about 10 or 15 minutes, FB I post way more of my trip pictures there and I em friends with a few people here on FB, the reason I post pictures there is because site takes way to much time to download pictures, if anyone want to follow me on FB friend Mark Houston.

working night shift I check often. Has been fewer night chatters the last few years. Lost touch with a few people who are not active on the site. H2O still gives me hope for humanity!!!

No FB, Twitter, Snapchat, etc. This site and a couple fishing ones. Don't try to but checking all sites I'll spend about 45min-1 hour, depending on day might check them again in evening.
OldFingers57 04/20/2017 07:54PM
I check in here several times a day. Not as much though as all of the FB groups I'm on.
bfurlow 04/20/2017 07:35PM
I check in here once during the day, and usually once at night. Total time varies, but I would guess about 30 minutes. It's been more lately because I have been watching the video of Beav's trip.


Other than here, I spend maybe 15-20 minutes a day on facebook. Another 30 minutes of my time is spent on random things on the internet, or spending too much $ online on gear I don't really need. :)

This is the only message board i post on. Right now, being so close to paddling/fishing season i'm checking the site more often than usual. Podcasts and youtube are my focus and im entirely avoiding facebook.

Usually check it in the morning and then after supper. Might take a quick nightly peek at Hammock Forums. Facebook is full of hateful people who don't know how to have a civil disagreement. (I do keep up with my four granddaughters pictures on FB)

Checking this forum is the best way I know to avoid housework, dishes and cleaning. Isn't this what all retired folks do - sit and chat with friends? Works for me.
ozarkpaddler 04/20/2017 06:03PM
Well, once a week I might check Paddling.net. Once or twice a month Song of the Paddle. Facebook, maybe an hour or so if I put up some pictures (slow internet), and check it 3-4 days a week. THIS site, 2-3 times a day except when at work. So, an hour 4-5 days a week?


Seems like I'm on the computer more, but it's because I have my daily e-mail devotionals, I read my Bible online, do bills and banking online, listen to music, etc.
SaganagaJoe 04/20/2017 05:46PM
This site, a banjo site, the Washington Trails Association site, at least one blog, and the news. That's not too bad. I need some reprieve from my law studies.

I usually check this site daily, some days I spend more time here than other days. Between my husband and I we have 17 siblings with a multitude of other relatives spread all over the US so I usually glance at fb 1-2 times a day just to get some idea of what they are up to. Thankfully only a handful of them document their meals and every word their babies say.
boonie 04/20/2017 04:37PM
Probably a little too much here, but I'm hardly ever on FB or anything else. And I hardly ever watch TV, excluding a little sports. I'm usually on here several times a day, but sometimes not for very long. Over time I've become a little more selective in what I read and reply to, but I'm not a "chatter". I can't type fast enough for that anyway!

overthehill 04/20/2017 03:35PM
This is it. Time varies as well as frequency; but this is the only forum. A little shopping/browsing and sometimes a weather forecast.

quote mastertangler: "This is it for me and I spend a bit to much time here as it is. Have the morning coffee here and the afternoon break before I start the night shift.



FB is completely a bore IMHO despite a pile of "friends" and I have never even seen twitter and could care less about "following" somebody ("I'm going to the store now", whoppee!). I have never "chatted" unless it was to get technical help and don't get the whole "chat room" thing.



I should check out the Amazingribs.com that Frenchy suggests. I made the plunge into a Big Green Egg. About the only thing which has come out absolutely amazing is Salmon. The rest I could use some encouragement or maybe a swift kick in the rear. "



You should check out the Egghead Forum. There are a lot of good cooks on there, should get you going in the right direction. I started with one egg two years ago, now I have three, and cook on them more then my stove.

My wife does FB... I check on this site once a day or so and leave a snide comment..... kindof a slow time for posts.
Hopefully the canoe comes out of the barn next week for a 3 day outing in the UP of Michigan.

Depends how slow it is at work. This week I've been checking this site, and others, a lot and wishing people would post more interesting things.

I don't have FB but spend a few mins a day looking over this forum
Frenchy19 04/20/2017 10:14AM
No FB, Twitter nor any other social media sites. Check this site daily as well as amazingribs.com. If you are a grill fan, amazingribs.com is da bomb!
GeoFisher 04/20/2017 09:44AM
NOT that it really matters....but man oh man, I seriously think some folks do nothing but sit on forums and chat.

I usually spend about 30 minutes or so here, and 30 minutes or so on another, and to be honest, way too much time of FB. Maybe a couple hours a day total.

Heck, I will go weeks or months without posting here though..

Like I said, it doesn't matter, but how much time on average would you say you spend online.

Later,

Geo
