  1. I'm an emt and had to use epi in the field on a few people. If I saw you and your eye like that I would consider shooting you up. But really there has to be some sort of a breathing problem before I can really give you epi. From the looks of your eye you should always have an epi pen handy. If you had multiple strike it could have been much worse. From what my medical director tells us epi is pretty harmless. I know some would disagree and im not saying go crazy with the shit. But if your on the fence I lean more towards taking the shot. The pen also is not as hardcore as it appears. It injects the epi super fast so itS more like a needle prick. It just looks painful because people overreact.


    Meani is right though Benadryl is the key to suppressing the long term affects. You should carry both in your first aid kit.


  2. I suspect the homeless who refuse services are a mix of both proud and challenged folks. Hard to blame them, particularly in these times.


    Mostly challenged. Hell I'll blame them. It's hard times for all of us and that's why we don't need to be picking up peoples shit. They should have thrown those bums away with the garbage and saved us tax payers some settlement money.

  3. How many jamboxes do you see at Smith?


    Not alot I do admit. But they have ruined my experience a time or two over the years of climbing.


    In the early 90s I walked all the way from the parking lot to the dihedrals with a full size ghetto blaster on my shoulder playing public enemy, then my D cells ran out before the sendage. true story.



  4. Is this a respect issue to the other locals or is it really about the bolts? A bad injury happened and a couple people had a knee jerk reaction to it. Let's say Ian waited a week or so and talk to more people about this. Maybe held a meeting of some sort. Do you think this would still be such a bitch fest? Is the about the way it went down or the fact you can't swing on some bolts that can be replaced?
