  1. And don't forget to write your name on your helmet.

    And write your blood type on it as well. Seriously, it could be very helpful one day. And tape an emergency "space" blanket to the inside. You may need it someday.

     

    Don't put stuff on the inside of your helmet. The gap between the shell and your head is meant to compress when you smack something. No gap, no protection.


  2. Dom Portwood: Hi, Peter. What's happening? We need to talk about your TPS reports.

     

    Peter Gibbons: Yeah. The coversheet. I know, I know. Uh, Bill talked to me about it.

     

    Dom Portwood: Yeah. Did you get that memo?

     

    Peter Gibbons: Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy. And the problem is just that I forgot the one time. And I've already taken care of it so it's not even really a problem anymore.

     

    Dom Portwood: Ah! Yeah. It's just we're putting new coversheets on all the TPS reports before they go out now. So if you could go ahead and try to remember to do that from now on, that'd be great. All right!

     


  3. Mr. Phil say:

    Oh, wait. Half ass. Dwayner.

     

    Who's the fool?

     

    Save your insults for spray.

     

    Hypocrite. Where did you go to school? Reading comprehension and critical thinking must not have been on the curriculum.


  4. How about some "leave little trace" ethic?

     

    I'd be tempted to take the quick draws down and post a message where they could be retrieved or just throw them in the garbage as abandoned litter.

     

    If you pulled the draws but not the bolts and hangers, then you're only doing a half-assed job at "Leave little trace."

     

    Oh, wait. Half ass. Dwayner.

     

    Who's the fool?


  5. I'll disagree with Gene and say take the down jacket. I've froze my ass off on big mountains in June wearing a softshell and jacket. There's really not much insulation in a softshell because there is no loft. On one July climb of Rainier, I was wearing my Volant jacket on the way up because the wind was howling.

     

    Clothing systems are a personal decision. What works for one person may not work for you. As a newbie, I'd suggest bringing a little too much until you decide what works for you. Being warm and dry is being happy.

     

    YMMV.
