Just when I thought this was the friendliest forum around, the insults come thick and fast :evil: I'll have you know that 1970 was a good year(at least for wine) although in two months I'm 37(not sure if that's a good or bad thing?) :lol:

Good to see you back on the forum Loz, and happy birthday :cheers:

Where abouts in Ireland are you going?

We're off to the Burren.

And I'm sorry to disappoint Alienator but both grandmothers are dead. I think you're getting us Brits mixed up with rednecks from Louisiana :x

Brent, have you ever thought of making carbon Friends? Then we can have climbing weight weenies.

I'm sure Robin or Nicolai will pop up to say that cf is unsuitable due to multidirectional loading :lol:

tis not true. You can design carbon layups for different loadings.

Hmmmmm.....I think I'll let someone else fall-test them first. So, Ripley, you want a full CF Friend? Cams and all? I'm thinkin' you could maybe do somethin' with maybe Boron and winter toys, like ice screws, deadmen, pickets. Could shed some serious weight on technical ice.....could be dangerous. Sounds fun.

Dunno, me mind is still perturbed by a nudist climber I saw on a local wall a month ago. Talking about fiber, he'd ought to do some bush trimming, before setting him over some, eh inspective view of a bedazzled crowd. :shock:

Wow, I'm starting to reminisce (is that how you spell it?) of good times past. Ripley451 and Alienator in the same thread 8-) Looks like a great start to 2009 is on the cards :twisted:
