    ... that's the bit I don't get, with the Tojo there why did'nt y'all just hook a drag chain up onto the Numpty that was injured and just drive away, you would have had him at the top in about 2mins and been off for beers..... ;);):D:D

    It looks like a lot but when you are working as a team and you bring everyone's personal gear into the fold, then it gives you a lot of options. Except for the Terradaptor tripod, everything else is personal gear that each team member carries into the woods for an operation. Each team member with a few carabiners, a couple of pulleys, a few prussic cords and a rope or set of 4s adds up to a lot of gear to use when you finally get to the scene.

    Point is, DO NOT donate that sked to Hugh because he doesn't need it. WE NEED IT here for our rope classes. That damn Hugh Coffee has stolen enough gear from fire departments already!

    I tried a terradaptor tripod once in Morocco. Took 3 weeks of antibiotics to clear that up.

    I need to send Trey a Bahco folding saw. He missed his calling as a logger.

    I was afraid he was going to slip and cut a tensioned rope.
