Dynamic or Static - doesn't matter. But I am looking to use it to secure the spare tire to the roof of my van. The tire holder on the back is rusted and cannot hold the tire, so until I get a replacement - up top it is.

I think 20 to 30 feet is good. It's up there now, being held by bungy and accessory cord, but something more substantial would feel a LOT more secure...

If you have an old length of rope you can get to me(local to New Paltz area) I will come pick it up or meet you somewhere. Heading off to the southwest probably on Tuesday - so....as soon as the snow clears, I'll be by!

Why do you ask for this kind of stuff for your trips right at the last possible moment? You knew about the tire holder, what, 2 months ago? Three? More? Same with trying to sell the heater.

I know someone who was there 3 weeks or so ago and would have been happy to give you an old rope or three....had he known. Just sayin' you could make some aspects of your life easier if you give people more notice.
Sorta like trying to find a ride partner for a cross country trip a mere month before you intend to depart.

Maybe you should ask every car that pulls into Coxing as you stand there talking to the preserve employee.
Or after you have grubbed a ride to the poughkeepsie train station you could do a quick stop off at Lowes for some bungee cords or rope, i doubt they will just give it to you though.

Crimpy - I paid a person to give me rides to/from Poughkeepsie train station to Camp Slime. Found her via placing an ad in Craigslist, and for 3 years we had that arrangement.

In that time, she and I became good friends. I taught her to climb.

As for talking to preserve employees - what is wrong with that? I am always very careful to halt conversation when anyone comes up, so they are not sitting there waiting. I have also helped out a little when things get backed up, by answering questions for people as a volunteer, when I am hanging around.


You've made 6 posts on this site, but I guess some must be from a while back, since there are only 2 in the log. Both posts directed at me. Why not do me a favor and identify yourself so I know who I am dealing with?

Likely, you won't - and that makes you a coward; one who hasn't got the strength of character to say things to a person to their face(even if it is via internet).

Geez... guess not. But I can help you, if you really want to get your knickers knotted up. Take a look at my most recent blog post, http://happiegrrrlclimbing.blogspot.com/2011/10/guess-where-swanky-will-break-downfirst.html , but I warn you.... you may need medications afterward.

Take a look at my most recent blog post

Wow; there's another potential screenplay.

Well, so far the van is running well, so the screenplay may need some embellishment. But I am sure there's got to be a breakdown to come SOME time between now and next May.

Let's hope that when it does happen, I get lucky like I did in Tucson, when the fuel pump died... Now that was a scene out of...somewhere.

Whoever travels with you might do well to take along a videocamera -- and at least one credit card!

And get a AAA membership - cheap compared to towing charges.

Teddy has no credit card... We are in Shartleville, PA right now, getting gas at $3.39 9/10.

Crimpy - still wears his cowardly shroud of anonymity. What kind of loser must one be, where the only way they dare make a peep is if they feel safe nobody will ever look them in the eye one day about it?

What a baby!

Got my fingers crossed for you, as it were, on your trip. (Forget about Crimpy.)
