Arapiles Accident 8/6/08

Now that someone has successfully already jacked this thread.

I wish the injured climber a speedy and complete recovery.

Radios. I wish I could find a link to it now but on the one day sales from Torpedo 7 there was a pair of wrist watch 2way radios. Very Dick Tracey and, I suspect, much more usable then the hand held units I currently have, so long as you have a spare hand.

I'll try searching again later but they were about $ 60 for the pair. Not that much more than the cheap hand units.

The radios I use have been fitted with a string to wear around your neck, so you only need one hand to
use it, tucked into the top of whatever jacket or shirt you've got on, just simply squeeze the talk button
and your wired for sound, very convenient so far, with no break downs of communication, and also very
reliable, 5km radius, and cheap as chips.... well ....$40 chips.

Got my two ways on ebay, $69 for a pair compared to $160 in the shops. They attach very nicely to the sholder strap of a camel back with the use of some gaffa tape, works quite well.

Excerpts from that link ...

All the best for a full and quick recovery Joshua, and thanks for sharing enough of your incident so that others can learn from it.

Ouch. Ouch a lot. Hope he recovers quickly. Lucky it wasn't at the top of The Bard. Holding onto rock is definitely the best way to stop gravity sucking (I still hate abseiling).

Hope you heal quickly Josh, and same goes for me about sharing the info, if any body can learn from
this accident then it might save others from doing the same thing...... BP

Get your hand of it n00b, you help carry a stretcher or 2 of a hill and all of a sudden you're some gun rescue guru? Gues you can portray yourself to be anything on the interweb.

Yeah, like a complete prickle troll... Does anyone get the feeling that Hexy is back? Hey Rod, you still got that photo of him?

Hey guys, do what most other forum members do and just hit the ignore post button, like I do.
there has never been anything even slightly informative or interesting with any of this persons posts.
They are all negative slandering bitch sessions, typical of somebody without a life, do yourself a favour
and all you will ever see of this particular DH is a grey box stating that his post has been barred for your
viewing pleasure :) I've gotta say since doing this with his posts, I've gained particular pleasure whenever
he tries to have a whine about whatever, soon enough he might realise that nobody gives a shit what he
thinks, except the moderators who have actually deleted his posts in the past and will probably be doing
so again, as all his posts are complete whining drivel. BP

Would like to select the Ignore function BP, but as a mod I still have to read it...

When I have time, I might do a search and see if I find even just one post from N00b hasn't been a troll!

Click the profile button at the top of this thread.
Then you should see the following at the bottom of your profile page:

Interaction: 3035 users have voted that you be removed from the forum.
3035 users are ignoring your messages.

Looks like you have the record Ed! hehe.

But you say that without seeing his posts. That last one is as important to climbing as the communist manifesto was to world politics. (Though your probably not reading this either as your remarkably thin skin prevents you reading anything vaguely challenging.)

Many users have moved on, and a quick peruse of user ID's will confirm this when you see last log in with dates in 2003/4/5 etc. If your persecutors failed to update that ignore/vote off function before fading away, then it will remain locked in cybertime until they return!
... Then again they could be lurking and chuckling right now!!

Too restrained to be hex.
PM'd you.

?
I doubt it.
n00bpwn3r post did not seem to me as being important. More like a personal issue instead, that that user seems to have with another Natimuk local.
Strange that user feels the need to air their own dirty laundry (attitude), for all the world to see.

Part or all off the post was reprinted as a quote Andrea, so I got to see the gist of what was said on
the original post, the same old shit that got the button pushed in the first place.
what exactly was the part that was mind altering for you????

>That last one is as important to climbing as the communist manifesto was to world politics.

Doesn't take much to excite you does it, maybe you fit into the "no life "category?
