    Sobo and Freeman - thanks for the tips good reading on the TT forum too - searches turned up lots of good info (careful sifting required) - next time: search first, post after. DH
  3. RFI: Avalanche Transceivers

    Sobo, Thanks for the suggestion - frankly the reason I didn't search first was because I never thought of it - stupid me (note the avitar). Thanks too for your rant retract - kept me from replying something along the lines of having a life of work, family, skiing, climbing, etc. that detracts me from making 1,100 posts on a bb. - just flippin' ya shit - I do appreciate your tip!

  8. Kit Lewis is my hero

    >Is Kit the man so many years ago that would use his 357 Python to shoot slings off of the Lower Town Wall? < I don't believe that he owned a python at the time that story originated - I think it was an M-1, a better option given the choice.

    Is anyone participating in a local organized effort to oppose/terminate this "trial" - or, if not, aware of such a effort? Any national groups? Glen - Anything more From Cantwell? has anyone contacted P. Murray's office? DH
