Re: The Dead at Destitute Mountain

Using the rifle as a crutch , he stood unsteadily on one foot and lifted the other to inspect the hole the .45 Colt slug had made in the toe of his boot. Anyone else read this as the rifle jammed barrel down in the dirt with Redhouse leaning heavily on it? I'm thinking this problem resolves itself ...

Re: Attaching a sheath to a pack

Eat broccoli. Seriously. The thick 1/2" wide blue "rubber bands" that hold the stalks together in the supermarket are strong enough to hold a Ka-Bar knife and sheath on an ALICE or backpack strap. You'll have to undo the bottom of the strap to slide them up, but it works well. Or the inner tube idea...

I agree with James Cannon; I'd share with kids, pregnant or nursing mothers, and my hypoglycemic wife. That's about it. Anyone else can "Nut up or Shut up" in Stranded on Tarmac Land.

Thanks for the tips. I think the Tibetan place is still there, at least I found it on the web.

We may have time for Nashville, what's there?

So the missus, more than a few friends, and I will be traveling to Bloomington, IN in May to hear the Dalai Lama speak at UI. We've already booked a B&B. What I want are recommendations for good places to eat. Anyone know Bloomington well enough to advise?

A stout oak or hickory walking stick, wrapped paracord handle with a compass attached. Non-threatening looking, but very effective. Can also be used on two legged animals in a pinch.
