this happened in about 95 or 96

my truck got stuck in the San Bernardino mountains around September

had a 20 plus mile hike to get to where I could get some help

weather conditions there go from baking hot to freeze your balls off cold pretty quick

used a lot of the gear I had in my kit then for the hike out, including the change of clothes and the poncho/jacket I had was a godsend since it started pouring halfway through.



but first I took out my pistol and shot nine holes in the bed of my truck for letting me down

if I didn't have a pistol in my bag I could never have done that

it is all about being prepared dude

He just keeps getting sexier by the minute in my book.

Any truck worth shooting once, is worth shooting 9 times.

The classic bit would have been if it was a revolver....means he would have had to reload and still be mad enough to shoot it 3 more times!

he does a great job of reminding me that despite our shared heritage, culturally the Brits and the Yanks have diverged a little.

Kinda lookin' back through the thread, what's the problem with owning military gear?

The shit works and work more often than not, works well. At least, the shit I had to use did.

Should I buy a The North Face daypack to keep from being all "tacticool"?

yep says I

"dude, that is a lot of them, how did they get there"

says I
