Steph must be a wreck...two husbands past an present lost to this pursuit.I wonder if she will rethink he own jumping  habits or if she will continue to push her own limits with nylon and string. Such a sad loss for everyone. Condolences to the friends and family and RIP, you lived it to the fullest!

I climbed with Dean a bunch of times for a couple of years 90-91. Many of the good 5.11's in the MWV I had climbed over the years and Dean wanted to lead every last one. He liked having me belay him because he mostly liked that I'd give him the beta on whatever we were doing with regard to protection. At the time I was actively paragliding and Dean thought that was the coolest thing ever. He left North Conway the following year and the rest is legend. Rest in peace Dean. You will be missed friend.

Can't hardly walk outside here at home in Effingham without getting swarmed by the little bastards....  I give it 3-4 days, tops, before you are ready to raise it all the way up!

strange... I was out the past couple of days in the woods and hardly got nibbled - even with no bug dope on. I will raise it to a 2, but I think it's definitely dependent on where you are.
