You bet... I'm getting sick of having so many ties laying around. But the RLPL went for $53 (paid 99 cents!), so I can't complain too much!

I don't know much about the quality of technical gear but if it worked for overnight in the wild, then surely you picked up some great quality itmes. And this is surely almost the grandest setting for a thrift fit ever on this thread (I'm guessing Spoo's picture of himself at the Versace manion was not a thrift fit). happy.gif

Not this time, but I've been there a bunch of times. I proposed at the top of Lembert Dome and we were married below Yosemite Falls.
