    * I don't mean one or two beers - I mean as much beer as your capacity and judgement dictates. There is a fresh growler in the fridge. Great great photos.

    Jumars and ascenders are the same thing and I typically only use my etrier's if I have to aid around which looks like this:
    P7080004-L.jpg
    Moving across fixed points using your cowstails of which you have 3 so you can stay connected to 2 at all times. In this case he is positioned on 3 hooks which are a modification of a Petzl fife hook. He's also on belay on 2 ropes.

    As for beer I'd love to get a spin in to Michigan, maybe I'll be able to try for Montana next year. I make no promises for judgement when unlimited beer is on hand but I do knowhow to show restraint seeing as I have over 1000 bottles in my cellar.

    Thank you very much for the invite. when are you coming to Newfoundland for a visit?

    I think we are a little alike in promoting our respective home areas.

    I have wanted to get out your way ever since some BMW OA friends from Prince George B.C. sent me a postcard showing the Confederation Bridge. Wow.

    I was trying to do the Prudhoe Bay to Key West trip again this year but it appears that family medical issues and the coronavirus situation may make that not possible.

    If you do get out this way stop for a night and I will take you around to the three places we have. They do an excellent job and get good reviews from visitors.

    The area used to have a good barber shop too. Hope it is still there!

    It still is.

    It is closed right now and I am not sure about its near future as that the barber, Aubry (story teller extraordinaire) is 79 years old and he needs to have a safe environment.

    He once convinced a visiting Army Colonel that one of the aviators was giving helicopter rides out to a remote lake to fish and had just raised the shuttle price and the locals were pretty upset. The Colonel hurriedly reported it to the base commander who asked, with a chuckle, if he had been in to get his haircut from Aubry.

    I will pass your comment on to him. It will make his day.

    I also wanted to see if BMW riders listen. I am guessing no.

    Rapid Roy inspired me to start my own thread about nothing; the Mid-South Ride Eat and Meet thread. It started as a thread about nothing and evolved into a thread about everything. How disappointing is that? Thx Rapid Roy!

    Roy, take a second and tell us what you've been up to during your hiatus. Nothing I assume.
