  • Where are the "vintage primals?" Pre-2009?

    What a difference 2 years makes. While I applaud the growth of the site and can find a gem here and there, I miss the good 'ole days when the website was slow, Mark used to actually respond to posts (because there were only 15 a day), and the focus was on the Primal Blueprint, research, exercise, and nutrition, and not just a primalized version of "low carb friends". So, onthebayou, serialsinner, acmebike, taratootie, tarlach and others...if you're still out there, please make yourself heard...or start your own thread or group so we can get back to business. Diana...you may be the last of us!

    I'm still hangin' out to make sure I'm not missing anything, but I don't post as much as I used to. There are only so many dozen times I feel like responding to questions about coconut oil, no matter how enthusiastic I am about it!

      Is it wrong that I just got crazy happy that you posted?! I was just feeling nostalgic today and was hoping for a "primal-reunion" of sorts. I agree, it's hard to see the same topics over and over. While everyone starts at the same place and I totally respect that, I just wish there was a separate forum for "experienced" primals.

          But I have been doing Primal for 37 hours and not lost a pound! HALP!

          Kinda gets old.

          Thank goodness for ChocoTaco or whatever.

            Crazy happy to see you, too!

              Paleohacks.com may be more to your liking. Probably you already know about it though. I don't go there anymore because the vibes are not right for me.

              I am very happy that the forum has turned into a primalized version of "low carb friends". It is tiring to answer the same questions over and over. But it feels like I am doing something worthwhile.

              Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

                I'm not one of the 'old crowd' ... but I wish I was because I'd hopefully be at my goal weight by now

                However, just about every forum I've ever been involved with goes through the same life cycle. It is what it is.

                  PJAP!!! LONG TIME NO SEE!

                  Sad to say, I almost skimmed right over this post.

                  I, like others, have "Forum Burnout" and sort of lay low most of the time. I keep in touch with Batty & 216 as best I can even if they're not on the boards anymore. Facebook helps.

                  How have you been!?

                    I'm good, Diana! Still trying to maintain the balance between power lifting and still looking like a girl I read the blog and skim (like you) through the forum everyday, but rarely post anymore. I've kept up with you via your blog. Holy shit, Boarfest looked AMAZING! That was quite a feat to pull off, congratulations!

                      Yo. I used to be Primalchild. You see what this site has done to me.

                        As a newbie looking at doing primal for the long haul, this is one cool thread. You "old"-timers rock!
                        I'm retraining and strengthening my taste buds, one primal meal at a time.

                          I'm here...not *as* old as Tarlach, SS and OTB although I miss them all! I agree its a cyclical thing, these online forums...

                          I think SS has a paleo blog out there though...may be written in Spanish? Sorry no link!

                            I was lurking then, and miss those old posters, and also Molecular Grokologist(even though he wasn't as old).

                              I think he's the one behind vidapaleo.com which is a very good site.

                              I joined in January 2010, so maybe not quite there. I do remember the forum being a lot more laid-back and more "focused" but that's the cycle of every forum ever. I've been on them since I was a wee lad, and it's very rare for a forum to remain the same for long periods of time, unless it's a very small community that isn't growing like ours is.
                              I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.
