  1. French Free

    Trad climbing is newsworthy in France?
  2. Newbie looking for first rope

    Bluewater is a fine choice. Don't pay attention to anyone who suggests you scrimp on safety equipment quality.
  3. Gun Control

    Um, yeah. You can. Just can't be drinking.
  4. Lance

    I heard Lance will be a judge on next season's American Idol AND compete on Dancing with the Stars. Which is AWESOME!
  5. Had Your Flu Shots Yet?

    Isn't this flu vaccine another leftist ploy to take away our guns?
  6. house buying in Bend

    Been looking and making offers on midtown houses (<$200K) for the last 6 months, but no joy. Any clever ideas for buying a home or property in Bend?
  7. house buying in Bend

    Score one for persistence. And luck. Got a place near Pilot Butte.
  8. Easy San Diego cragging?

  9. Long tents?

    Stephenson custom built for your freaky height.
  10. house buying in Bend

    Thanks all for advice. Family is what's driving the search.
  11. greg mortensen, bs artist

    Turns out the 3 cups of tea is a story? Does this minimize the value of education in developing countries? Is krakauer full of it?
  12. Hand/forearm/finger strength

    Captain of Crush. If you can close a #3, you're there.
  13. undecided?

    Still? If a voter hasn't decided by now, their vote value should be diminished. IMO.
  14. Leather or Plastic Boots?

    Get the boots that fit.
  15. Hey Joe

    It is hard to resist political debates. Especially with ill-informed coworkers. Mouth breathing idiots! So, IMHO, the one candidate wants to give my job away, increase my tax liability, and make education more expensive. It's not even a choice for me at that point on where my vote goes. I voted a couple weeks ago (another perk of the job ). Course, my voting district is completely mail in now. Do it. Do it now.
  16. Fast N Lite Packs

    I'm coming out of a phase of trying to go as cheap as I can... what I found was that spending $75 instead of $200 very frequently results in spending $275. Not to mention the hassles when your cheap gear fails you miles from nowhere... Whatever. mec makes stuff that lasts. Simple but effective. But you can spend your money how you see fit.
  17. Fast N Lite Packs

    2ยข: spend less money. The one pocket homemade wonder of 25 years keeps going strong whereas the trick arc'tryx disco fever shredded first trip. Just sayin. mec.ca has some cheapos ready made. Course, my go to bike messenger bag is three grocery sacks strung together.
  18. pop up camper

    Ksl.com classifieds has a lot to choose from. How far you willing to drive ia the question.
  19. What pants for alpine climbing?

    Definitely not white: it's after Labor day. MEC has some decent cheapos.
  20. Great Seasonal Brew

    Uintah's pumpkin ale is good. My slc favorite is espresso stout at squatters. But I ain't done with summer: dame michelada (maggi tabasco lime into modelo), carnal!
  21. "gear to slow you down"

    Son, you're lacking perspective. You asked a question regarding work, then limit your vocabulary to force. The answer to your question is probably no (the scenario you describe is too incomplete to say no definitively). The explanation can be found in previous posts.
  22. "gear to slow you down"

    Why do you assume you didn't get the "qualified" response you sought?
  23. "gear to slow you down"

    The extra friction of an additional gear placement whether it fails or not will lessen the load on everything.
  24. Reality check Musilm

    Fukin irony that this post is on a bb with moderators.
