I'm always up for killing GOD and going to Kaputar. Was thinking of a November holiday..... Mick are you lurking?

At Kaputar when you walk pointlessly in circles at least you know when you are going down hill. Oh, the Bungles was meant to be like that to ?

Have you seen how silly you look in the mirror? Platypus look quite sensible. At least they have tails,

Pot is only illegal because of the cotton industry lobby. Ever wondered where hemp rope came from? As
far as a plant grown for fibre, it's probably the best.

Yup, American cotton plantation owners stirred up stories about crazed Mexican immigrants abusing hemp and how it should be banned - which it was. And the best varieties for hemp can't even be smoked (well they can, but all you get is a headache).

As an aside, Nutella and Cocoa-pop sandwiches are not nearly as delicious as you might think.

Yes I've looked in a mirror but it wasn't silly looking enough so I ran up some stairs naked.

I usually use peanut butter in place of the cocoa-pops.

And did you know that a spoonful of peanut butter in 2 minute noodles makes them satay? Gourmet!

Awesome! Do you make your own dough? Would I need to modify my usual dough recipe (1 cup flour, 1/3 cup warm water, yeast, salt, pinch of sugar, oregano) for the Trangia?

Like your style too!

>Personally I've abused the hell out of my body with most things they have a name for & it has been a huge factor in my crap climbing performance (along with my injuries) over the last few years. Fun times, don't regret them, but glad that I'm living a lot healthier now & feeling a lot fitter. I'm not convinced that it made me a dangerous climber, it just made me physically weak and lethargic. I have done dangerous things, sometimes dumb things, but I don't attribute that to drugs. I've climbed, including multipitch soloing, under the influence of different things and felt totally in control. Not in a spaced out 'it'll be fine' way, in a positive & genuinely aware of myself way.


Hmmm.
Not climbing but similar flavour.
Back in the 70's (and no, I am not stroking my beard at the moment), I used to regularly surf a particularly gnarly reef break. An acquaintance whose surfing ability I admired at that location became a regular user of 'pot'. I watched the detrimental effect it had on his surfing over a period of time and was not surprised when he eventually hurt himself surfing that break due not being on top of his game, as the nature of the wave gave little leeway for error.
I know he felt in full control because he stated this to me when I had conversations with him on various occasions while waiting for the next set ...
I also noted some of his 'pot' using friends go the same track of deteriorating surfing performance.
Consequently I chose (and continue to do so), not to go down that path; whether it be surfing, climbing or whatever.

He (and his friends), may have been

... however from my bystanders perspective they appeared to me to be a lot more spaced out than they thought they were.

They may not have been courting danger by some peoples standards, but in my experience gravity is no respecter of ‘ability’, ... and for that matter water is no respecter of a surfers need to breath air!

I dont need drugs, I already have enough voices inside my head.
seriously though I used to have a friend who should of being playing AFL footy but instead started smoking dope with all his new cool friends, stopped training started playing like the rest of us instead of the gun he was and dropped off the radar, no idea where he is now.

how many times have you heard someone say "its ok, im not drunk" when clearly they are wasted. Hell just look at the drink driving figures, everyone of those people thought they could drive, that it would be ok.

people addicted to substances of all types are most likely going to get worse at the regular things they do. people who like to use a little pot before/during climbing dont necessarily use a great amount, use it everyday, or are addicted and hence wouldnt have any noticable effect on climbing. if they were had a cold one before/during climbing nobody would say a thing

Pizza de Barbizon

I invented this recipe in the Barbizon bivouac site in Font. You need flour, water, herbs, tomato paste, toppings of your choice, and one of those really cheap brie or camembert cheeses that you get in France.

Make a dough then form it into a patty that can fit inside the big bowl in your Trangia. Cook one side of the patty on the fry pan, then cover the cooked side with tomato paste, toppings and the brie. Put it back on the fry pan to cook the other side but put the up turned bowl over the pizza so as to melt the brie. Depending on what toppings you want, you may wish to pre-cook these. Then walk around to other dirt bags camp sites casually eating pizza whilst they eat boiled lentils or what ever crap they have at hand.

Excellent style ES.

You ought to submit the recipe to Crux Mag (and get a free copy as a contributor?).
