    How'd it go today?

    Sounds like an avenue to not leave untended, Stig. I am old, and as deeply experienced at finding a sweet place within a big organization operative that I am, I can see a potentially nice path there. As I have shared here, by skill, luck, and gumption, I've always somehow been able to carve an...

    The Official Random Video Thread!

    If I was richer than all the many gods, I'd be all in :D. But just to play devil's advocate...there is a rarer than hen's teeth early 2000's Jaguar XKR coupe on offer here in the PNW. There were less than 1400 of these built, ever. I am again seriously tempted :)...

    Spur Climb - Second Lanyard?

    Both approaches have their benefits. Every competitive tree climber, in my experience, came out of a serious background in production tree climbing work. So the stuff they are doing re tree access, are top drawer skills based on real world experience. But for the rigging work especially, and...

    Spur Climb - Second Lanyard?

    If you ever get the chance to attend a regional or national tree climbing competition, and pay attention to the details of how the competitors are doing things, you can learn a ton. My first one...I was humbled, and then inspired, and then got waaaay better in short order. That was near 30...

    What Did Ya'll Have For Dinner Tonight?

    M's better than one can imagine scratch made split pea soup; and our regular house salad of cuke, tomato, romaine, sweet red pepper, and crimini mushrooms. The avocados from Mexico are not quite ripe yet, so we had to do without that :).

    You are right, Butch :). I know I am more easily confused than some, most especially when popular culture is part of the equation :D.

    Cold showers

    I've done the true sweat lodge super overheated body, straight to a plunge into a hole cut through 10 inches of ice, on a frozen-over lake in the Oregon Cascades high country, deep winter...a 12 mile XC ski in to spend several days in a simple woodstove heated cabin. That was mind...

    500 mph??? That's crazy off the charts. Twice as fast as a peregrine falcon in attack dive. Little wonder it's hard to see.

    New climber

    Well done. Best wished to the pop, unending kudos to the mom. The former almost always has the easy path, the latter no doubt has the battle :D. Happy for you both, sir.
