    I expect there will be pictures, Shawn. You don't do too shabby on your camping and hiking outings either, my friend.

    I hear you, Jim...and you too, Butch. I have thought a lot about a carry firearm these last few years. So far, I'm more of a blade packing sort. Here's my everyday defense knife... https://www.gerbergear.com/Knives/Folding/EVO-Titanium-Coated-Knife_22-41432. A flick blade is a fearsome weapon in knowledgeable hands. That will be the case there too, as it is here every day. I can go almost anywhere with this beast clipped in my pocket. I'm not happy about the idea of using it to hurt another human being, but I have no qualms about doing so to keep my love M, or my friends, or myself, or even some innocent bystander, from harm should some one wish anyone in that group harm. Frankly, my aluminum walking pole is a deadly weapon in the hands of a trained person...and I am both equipped with the same, and trained by a father who never would tell me how he learned the skills with a stick that he passed on to me when I was a teenager.

    I actually wonder what that might need to be, camping within a stone's throw of the US/Mex. border, these days. Any advice from recent experience...love to hear it.

    M and I are cooking, drying, packing our camp grub for a trip down to southernmost Arizona, expect to leave in 10 days. So I'm a little shy on time for full engagement here. Just checking in :).

    No doubt. And to be honest, it takes turn with my regular SRT kit. But when we need it...

    Deva, I should get a picture of the bollard on my Wraptor. I believe it is at least an 09 demo model. I believe I got to fly it at the WCGTG. Have to belay the rope now like adding weight to an SRT line. It will run up 9/16-5/8ths fine. It's on it's third clutch spring set and second set of clutches. 2nd fuel tank and clutch housing from a 60 foot fall. 2nd on off switch. 3rd set of fuel lines, filters and primer. Takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Nice score buddy. :thumbup:

    Stoopid...only explanation. Or died while it was in shipment. That would exempt one from the Burnham stoopid decree. ;)

    Agreed. Brian, I think you're maybe a little off the reservation this time. Maybe again, my old and much respected friend :).

    You cannot go wrong with Paul's ascender. I use mine only a few times a year, being retired...but it makes me laugh out loud every stinkin' ascent. The Wraptor rules.
