« on: April 28, 2013, 01:21:59 PM »
Two (signed!) copies of Pat Ament's Everything That Matters and a copy of Mountaineer's series Climbing Self-Rescue free* to a good home.
Send me an addy and they're your's (yours?, urs?, yewers - no, those are folks who fell trees, maybe).

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.

Dale, I'm interested in the Self-Rescue book.  Been thinking about getting one.  You still have my addy?

Ah, that's a negative, danf; it appears I purged my mailbox fairly completely.
PM it again and I'll drop the book in the mail ASAP.

'Course there is; there's a book for anything.  Doesn't mean you have to read it, but I learn best by reading, visualizing, then doing.  "Self-rescue", M2HB takedown (Jesus pin in left chest pocket for safekeeping), intestinal resection and anastomosis - all things I picked up from reading first.

Now it turns out that when you top out at 5.6, like me, and shit goes pear-shaped, instead of trying to remember all those fancy rope tricks, all you gotta do is turn around and walk back down the cliff.  So I'm passing the book on.

Danf, it went out today, book rate.  Maybe sometime next week?  Enjoy.
