    It's not a man cave. It's a den.

    This right here. I'm not sure if I ever posted this here but meant to... I was skiing out west, alone but following some people, kind of sidecountry, kind of stupid but calculated risk... but I miscalculated, zigged when they had zagged and found myself on an open, sketchy (AV) face and just straighlined it.

    Now I'm at the bottom, day getting long, snowmobiled in the distance, looking down a long power line route that was too flat to ski and to deep to walk.... In the end I hiked around and back out, very thirsty and kicking myself for my stupidity.

    Since then a little flat plastic whistle is permanently in my ski jacket. Even just a place like Slide Brook or woods at Magic... something goes wrong I think a whistle is the minimum, just something so you don't scream yourself hoarse and it's an obvious distress signal (as opposed to just shouting in the woods).

    You never know......

    Even moreso with these probiotic vitamins I started taking. Very little warning, great for weight loss though.

    I have something like this my brother gave me. I thought it would be good to bring to Colorado in case I fell in a tree well. It hurts your ears if blown indoors. You'd be glad you had it if you needed to attract attention.
