Dug out some old stuff

Postby commando » Sat 01 Aug, 2020 1:28 pm

Received quite a few comments on the Overland Trail with my expedition pack which is good for a
2 week hike and made in the days when nobody weighed feathers.

The rockclimbing boots are EBs hand made in a little farm in France one pair at a time. No climbing
undertaken on the Overland.

You must be as old as the hills and almost as old as I am. I climbed in EBs and RDs purchased from Bushgear. Great service; equal amounts of information, advice and insults. :mrgreen: :D

Yes Moondog, back when the Blimp Grade 21 at Bundaleer was being besieged every weekend until
someone made it up the infamous bookcase climb. Inside the cave where you slept the guy who climbed
through the roof grade 25 and out was the owner of Mountain Designs.
