All I've got so far are-

A bee net
The phone number to Rock and Resole
Rescue Services on speed dial
Black Edition Go Pro

I looked at the latest Freedom of the Hills- no help, just the same old outdated map/compass, etc.

Help me out, it's dangerous out there and I need to be ready.

How did everyone forget the Gri Gri?

Don't we all NEED one of those to belay with?

I always bring a dog, and a boombox, I figure the dog can get help like Lassie if I am injured, and the boombox can guide SAR to my location. bobbin

Well Tim, now that you mention it, I can picture you in a Pink TuTu, fishnet stockings, and 6" spiked heels.

Hmmm...

Perhaps I did actually mean, YOU!

PS...

MAKE SURE AND BRING FOOD TOMORROW! We'll probably be out there for a while...

I understand there are no bad trees, just bad tree owners, but I'm still taking a chainsaw next time!
