Nix the Pass/Garmin device . . . I'll send you some mitten clip keepers like I am sending to Hiram for Christmas. ;):D
Oh, oh - a custom Colorado or Oregon leash - like I fashioned for Team2Hunts' PDA And just so you know - as you have more birthday's it doesn't get any better LOL
So I have the Oregon. Did a quick cache with it on the way home and I'm impressed with the stability of the compass, an issue with the Colorado.
I'm glad I'm not the only beer drinker that looses things. So 2 garmins, Aaron? Wait until you're 58 and have trouble remembering how to get to work!
And FFJ.... Box 42, 13 Pearl Street, Waterville, Engine 1, Engine 2, Engine 3, Rescue 1 and Ladder 1 responding to a structure fire about 2 blocks from where I lived at the time on October 22,1984, my B-day. So after an initial search, Capt. Dana Rossignol and myself get pinned when the roof decides to collapse. We were both so tangled that it was the PASS devices that led the calvary to us. Could have been different. I have the Pull-Box on the wall in our downstairs lounge here. Know what you mean about those things, but thinking back 24 years, I was happy to have it. But I'll pass on an invention right now. Prevention month coming huh? Hope you still get out to cache!
Went back and checked for the Colorado today. If any of you have a metal detector, the grass is quite thick and high near the cache. Could still be there, but I think it now in the hands of some fisfit that has no idea what the thing does! Life goes on, thankfully.:)
geesh - aaron's may have been in a box at Goodwill or Salvation Army - wonder who got that buy at the Thrift store?
And yes, things are starting to heat up for FPW . . . darn kids . . . gotta play dress up something like a bazillion times next month so the little tykes don't get scared when we gear up. The last time I did this at a pre-school some little punk said to me, "You're fat." No kidding, Sherlock . . . now shut up and stop eating those crayons I gave you with your coloring book. ;):D
We had a group at Central one October and I was explaining to them how the Plectron system works. So one of the little "rocket scientists" hits the tone alert switch, I grabbed the mike to announce that this "is not a fire" but actually I had the mike in my hand as I told the little guy " Keep you hands off that stuff!" Well everybody with a radio started checking in "What stuff, Unit 6?" Who's in charge down there? Does the Chief know you're doing drills?" Be a long time before I live that one down.
After a month of that you might apreeciate Woody Allen's comment "Now you know why tigers eat their young!":) Still an important effort so good luck and keep a stiff upper lip!
