    I will work on a better option for the Metolius connection than what I currently use and have discussed in the thread. I need to bone up on the latest and greatest, but I will get back to you shortly. I knew what I was aiming for in terms of an upgrade a year or so ago, but I've lost track, LOL. I haven't gotten around to upgrading my own gear the way I want to. You can use what I use between the harness and the tree, but it is not the absolutely best and safest option anymore. Please do note that I think I've said somewhere that it is not what most people call a daisy chain, even though I think I've probably called it a daisy chain a couple of times. When I use the term "daisy chain" I was probably being a little looser than I should have been in these threads. DON'T go somewhere and ask for a daisy chain and use it in this system. You need something like what I have highlighted as a minimum.

    Victory! Found it, but only because I remembered I mentioned Mr. Pounce and did a search for him. I'm not sure it came up under an earlier search for "rock harness" but I could be wrong. I could have ignored a thread named "Pro Tips"... LOL. I think this is the first thread where we discuss it. http://forums.huntingcountry.com/forums/showthread.php?1388-Pro-Tips/page3&highlight=pounce Start at Post 26 if you're only interested in harnesses, and want to ignore all the other wisdom. :wink

    Here's the second thread in what I think of as three threads on this, Crookedeye's above being Part III. I'm having trouble finding the original thread, but I'll keep at it. http://forums.huntingcountry.com/forums/showthread.php?1485-How-they-hangin-part-tree&highlight=point+harness

    Here you go, WB. Should be able to save some money and IMO get a better system than a traditional behind-the-shoulders harness. Can't help you with an integrated auto descent system, but I have more faith in self-rescue with a rock harness than hanging from between my shoulders. If you use some type of lifeline like what HS sells, you should be golden. I think there are some links to further discussion in this thread here. I'll have more time to look for you later. I think Bluecat and I both have supplemental threads on this. Start here: http://forums.huntingcountry.com/forums/showthread.php?2017-rock-climbing-harness&highlight=rock+harness

    Oooh! Smoked burgers! That sounds good. Actually, all sorts of possibilities open up with this brisket idea. I like to put some Italian sausage in burgers, in something like 1/4 or 1/3 proportion. It would be better if the grinds of the two meats were the same, but my hand grinder is long gone to parts unknown. Keep us posted!

    These are really good, and I thought some of you might be interested. Here's the 3rd Place winner in the Rescue Dog category, which comes with a great story. The woman who took the pic is a young professional pet photographer, and really good. If you like pics of dogs, her website is above and here, and well worth a visit: http://www.dogbreathphoto.com More Kennel Club contest winners, including past years: http://www.dogphotographeroftheyear.org.uk/2016-Winners-Gallery

    I watched American Sniper again last night, mostly 'cause I have to clear space on my VCR but also because it's a pretty good movie. I got a chuckle--in light of this thread--out of the scene where the black Seal says the 2100 yard shot on "Mustafa" is going to be "impossible." Kyle later said the shot depicted (his longest) was "a total luck shot." I don't know how you even see someone who's hiding 2100 yards out, at least not the way the movie shows it. I'd think you'd be using spotting scopes and that kind of sh...stuff. The movie kinda fell down on the job showing the role of spotters, if you ask me. Wish they'd done a little bit better job on that.

    I agree. Part of why I put that/those particular chart(s) up there. You (I) could say the same thing or at least similar things about several other items there, such as universal background checks for private sales of personal property and creating a federal data base. I would love to see the actual questions asked, because we all know that how you word a question means so much in these cases. For instance, who isn't for keeping guns out of the hands of "the mentally ill"? Now define "mentally ill." As far as the no-fly and watch lists go, I just don't think very many people understand the due process angle, the bureaucracy, the incompetence, etc. Same goes for anything under the surface, really. If only there were a way that people could get and absorb facts and ideas...LOL

    Amazon might have some competition elsewhere as well. Share price has risen above the "discussion price" last time I was paying attention. Walmart rumored to be in the mix.

    LOL...The green in those is a lot brighter than mine. Mine are more like an OD. There's nothing like calling a gobbler up over a rise and flashing your big honkin' black or cream soles at him... Don't laugh. I spent a whole morning sweating that once.

    I only came to that conclusion late in life. Back in the day I wasn't that impressed, probably mostly just because I was listening to so much other stuff, and not really in that genre. I did get a full dose of Cheap Trick summers, though. I ran a Ferris wheel and had a big FAST horse ride (like a carousel) next to me. They had a big sound system and Cheap Trick was a favorite. Spent many an hour catching rays or chatting up chicks who wanted to "stop at the top" while listening to I Want You To Want Me and Surrender blasting from next door...LOL...Might have put me off them a bit, actually. :-) I don't think I was there past 1978 or 9, so my Cheap Trick connection dried up and I had to pick them up again on my own much later in my musical journey...LOL <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/m7pJLEwc8Ro" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> You can thank me later: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/0J8pL5JL9u8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    LOL...I didn't have Caribou, but I did have GBYBR. I'm not 100% sure, but I think I got GBYBR after Captain Fantastic. Elton John was a little bit of joke in my circle, but most of us were smart enough to know he was making good music.---LOL My first album in my collection was Robin Trower's Bridge of Sighs, so I guess you could say I like almost all kinds of music...:-)

    Ha! Good catch. I'd forgotten about that song. It always reminded me of this one: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Sw2Lptf7K0E" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> BTW---I wore that album out (Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy). Seeing the cover art again after all these years gives me goosebumps. I remember exactly when and where I got it, and who was there. July 1975.
