    We perhaps need to be watching his logs - who knows where he may drop one!

    Read my lips . . . no new taxes . . . I mean no purple ladders . . . it's just not natural.

    Well it's like this . . . I've seen natural wooden ladders, aluminum (silver) ladders, black painted ladders, white painted ladders, roof ladders and safety orange ladders, but I have yet to see a purple ladder (a real ladder incidentally) so I just can't bring myself to make a batch of purple ladders . . . or blue ladders . . . green ladders . . . etc. Besides if I did that I would end up starting a whole new collecting frenzy by you and I would end up with a rainbow assortment of ladders which I am sure would make DuPont very happy.

    Admittedly that would be one point in favor of adding a bevy of colored ladders . . . watching you attempt to find each and every color.

I still feel bad about the Thomas Luce cache . . . and the Multi in a Mile and a Half . . . and . . . . well you get the idea.


    But they are always fun, even if they are not originally where you tell me they are...LOL

    Of COURSE they will be valued collector items! Now if you're talking about the Smithsonian, then you're probably right ...but in the hearts of your fellow geocachers, they are extremely valuable!
    A cache by any other name is still a cache

    Talking Now Jake...

    I know for a fact that there are green ladders. We have one in our basement. As far as purple goes, I'm not sure. I thank they are more like eggplant.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Hmmm . . . I may have to consider doing a green door . . . I mean ladder in my collection. What shade of green is it?
