    Miss both you guys and the beautiful country up there! Be Well!
    Yup, those were poles you saw. My PCL finally went on me about two months ago and with two big trips coming up I though I should give them a second try. I found they did help a lot with my stability and giving me that extra little something on accents and descents. But what I liked the most was the options they gave me when it came to pitching my tarp.

    Looking forward to the next time we share the trail !

    I hesitate to ask, because I know it has been discussed before, but I'm curious about the Sector 7 references. Is there a link on this forum that explains it? I'm relatively new to the forum, and it just seems like more of the fun. Probably with my usual state of mind, I should be assigned "Section" (not Sector) 8! Think Uniform Code of Military Justice - Mental Discharge!

    Thanks again for taking us with you. The snow around here just up country a little ways is still buttocks deep to a tall Indian! I'm needin' me some gettin' out and GONE!!!

    I'm still youtube deprived, but I loaded up keepvid.com. I started the download this morning, and with any luck I'll be able to watch these vids in about five more hours.

    WHHHOOOOOO BUDDY!

    can't wait!
