    That had to have been a sight Brian. Love stuff like that when working around nature. Snow day today. My client cancelled and I had another lined up for my guys, also cancelled. Temps dropped last night below 20*. So it snowed on tepid ground getting it wet, then covered it with snow and a sheet of ice formed under crusty snow. Accidents everywhere, sheriffs asking folks to stay home, school cancelled. Was able to leave our driveway about 10ish and go pick up baby goats at a lower elevation. Accident on one of the grades (roll over and trapped) caused us to take a long detour but I made a good decision. Road was only icy in the shady spots while the highway we were on was an ice sheet. More accidents that way happened while we drove the sunny side of the mountain on clear roads. Came back to better roads after 1 pm. And safe and sound baby goats.

    Agreed, so risk mitigation. Train and prepare. Much easier to mitigate risk by just being trained and prepared. Enables you to recognise the risk and avoid it or mitigate. You are trained, your training probably gives you insight to trouble. Again, the risk is small. My kids are more at risk to a kidnapping than a shooting. SO we prepare and educate more to that. But my kids are also being trained in gun handling. In my eyes, there biggest risk with a firearm is an accidental shooting when at a friends etc.. If they know gun handling and safety, they have a better chance avoiding the risk or stopping the event. I wish I could afford martial arts as well. And they will never starve.

    If you can't stop terror, you defend against it. Metal detectors, locked steel doors, surveillance, guards. But evil will always find a work around. Hell, load up your van with some fert., park next to the barriers. My favorite was the flame thrower guy.....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cologne_school_massacre

    certainly the problem is mental health, but honestly that seems a much more difficult a problem to control than a physical product on for sale in a regulated marketplace. its not comparable to drugs which literally grow from trees.

    he could probably hear it. either way he shouldn't jave been a cop. thats why I'm not one. I am going to run the opposite direction from gunfire every time. you could also say it blows a huge hole in the idea of arming teachers. if a cop is going to hide, what's the social studies teacher going to do?

    he chose the wrong job to be in. I dont think that I would be very excited about going against a AR15 with a handgun either.

    Seen something like it at hotels in Mexico. I think they actually harvest the fronds there for the little cabana roofs on the beach. But they trimmed some like that around the hotel.

    Jeez Peter, almost sounds like our year last winter. Washed out roads, bridges and parts of town. Less the ice flows.

    Really cool Gary. I wish we had better places to fly kites here where we live. Too many trees and not much room for take offs. Not even at the park.

    just wanted to chat with you about the RI ITCC. is it possible to get your phone number?

  9. Hey Gerry- 2 quick questions for you...

    1- I'm on the verge of buying a video camera to make hd quality splicing vids (some to sell, some to youtube). I'm looking at the canon HG-10. any thoughts? What's the secret to getting HD vids up on youtube?

    2- I'm getting inquiries from people wanting to climb the redwoods. I think you saw a thread from a trip where i took some people up...but these are up in the state parks where, as you know, climbing is prohibited, Any suggestions for some private land where the owner would let me earn money on their property? I'd be glad to pay, of course...

    Hope all is well...

    love
    nick
  10. Aloha Jerry!

    I wanted to write and thank you again for setting the whole rec climb up. I'm really looking forward to meeting you.

    I know you closed the number of people several weeks ago so I feel bad for asking - a very close friend who lives in Portland is thinking about driving down to see me while I'm in humboldt and I told her I would have to check with you first to make sure it is okay. I am camping nearby but I would want to hang out with her so I was writing to ask permission if she could tag along with us.

    If that doesn't work, no problems at all Jerry. See you soon~!

    ~~~ Jon
