or rather... tall storytellers.... name names, who is the climber most likely to embelish their climbing adventures for the sake of a good story and recount some of those stories. It would be nice to read...

If only I did have some stories about hooters. It is lonely living up here in Natimuk.

As for tall stories... I think Glenn Tempest is your man. His stories are probably 70% truth and 30% embelishment.

?
... you could rename your establishment the Hooter Cafe and encourage patrons to read books while partaking of gourmet scoff?

>It is lonely living up here in Natimuk.
Sounds like you need to recruit at The Pines ?

... maybe PreferKnitting can help out?

Heh, heh, heh.

Glenn T has previously volunteered to recount stories for the cost of beers. More beers=more stories. The possibility of adversely impacting Simey's rule regarding the embellishment ratio needs to be considered.

Ah, no hooters here mate. Just knitting sticks. If you're into them, I might oblige and showyou my knitting sticks.

I seem to recall in an earlier thread about washing ropes Mr Box recomended "Stick your rope in a lingerie bag...".
Still not sure if that was a tall one about the biggest pair of knickers hes ever seen or just meant to scare people.
