I accidentally bought a duplicate, and since have somehow found an orphan in my bin. Tried to locate his owner, but nobody sunk low enough to claim him unjustly, and for the life of me, I can't find the rightful owner.

Heaven knows I don't need 3.....So I would like to offer up the one who's been placed maybe 3or 4 times, tops. Never fallen on, stored in plastic bin, kept dry. He's been a happy cam-per....

Email Happiegrrrl@ol.com
Manhattan location, or can bring him to the Gunks.

do not worry. you will (you have to ) climb 5.10 it is not too bad. and keep him. cause the best way to climb in the creeek is to meet a party of climbers and ask if you can join. they will almost always ask if you "GOT ANY CAMS"

Alas it is too late...#.75 has been spoken for.

It's a matter of adjusting that Cost per Use* ratio, you know.... A cam at $60, placed 5 times, costs $12 per use! Now, my life is worth way more than $12, but.....that's not how the game is played. Place that same cam 20 times, and the CPU goes down to $3.00. Still abysmal, wouldn't you say? 100 placements and it's 60 cents per use.... A thousand and it's 6 cents. THAT'S more like it!

Believe me, by the time I get to Indian Creek to climb, there will be ample opportunity for me to purchase more gear..... besides, I still have cams to offer in the mix. Does a woman with 3 .75's seem more appealing that one with less????



* The Cost per Use ratio, so far as I understand, was developed based on the concept of Calories per Cost ratio, as explained to me by Joe Frankel, when he compared my Cliff Bar to his Halvah bar. Perhaps others have known this way before I thought of it....but I don't care. The idea is mine. All mine.

Sorry, just got to say it after your post - it might depend on cost per use!

Terrie, some men look for women who climb 5.11, some for women who are 5.11, and some who have curves that are as dangerous as a 5.11 . I guess it all depends on what you wish to measure.

Joe was last seen eating a store-brand margarine stick for lunch.

Maybe Joe knows something we don't know... After all, he won the pull-up competition at the film festival at 29 pull-ups!
