Sorry I was short on details, just looking for thoughts. We're out here for an extended trip. Going to head up to Squamish this week and I was just looking for WA insight in case we wanted to do more climbing on the way back into the States. We'll probably pass back through Washington at the end of ...

As to the future of photojournalism it depends on what the views want. I've seen some great video on a newspaper's websites and I've seen some pure crap. Stephenson's Turtleman story is really nice. The CJ got a former TV news photographer (Scott Utterback) to shoot stories for them. Good video can ...

I'd move back if someone opened a gym off Leestown road with 90's splatter paint walls and red floors.

Hope you bring some warm DRY weather with you. Unseasonably wet and cool in the Sierras the past couple of weeks. I think I saw some stuff about sport lines in the Granite Chief area (wilderness?) but my vision could have been clouded by rain, hail and snow.

Jill and I will be glad to be the people who have the unleashed dog and are top roping through the anchors. Though I doubt those items will be hard to find on the hunt.

Ya'll have fun, sorry to miss out on a good ole scavenging.

Don't pay a dime to sleep in Texas. The rest areas are sweet places to overnight and they have free WI-FI to boot. The welcome center in Texarkana is super sweet. The welcome center just north of Laredo is looks like a gigantic hacienda. There is one just outside of Austin and San Antonio. One east ...

From PMI:

What you witnessed is a rare but not unheard of "over-twisting" issue that can happen to anyone processing yarns. From the pictures you provided it is perfectly clear that one strand of the 3-strand core cable is grossly over-twisted and "hockles" out of the correct lay of the cable.

I wonder if you even know yourself?
Word is that you and SCINy were telling people at IC a few years ago that you are from Kentucky.

I've seen the same thing in yarn production. Lack of tension That is what it looked like to me too. Never seen anything like that in a rope. Strange stuff. Why does PMI suck? Don't they make most of the ropes on the market? I thought there were like two or three manufacturers and then other compani...

I'd avoid the Brock book, per the old pissing match over Johhny's old guides. The Handren guide is the one I keep leafing through at stores. We're using Swain's old guide, after the Vogel guide to J-Tree its top notch!
