Chris:

I don't mind guys saying "Mr." as much as when some attractive woman says it; it makes me feel really old.

I recently had a young stud attempt to cut into a conversation I was having with an attractive lady who was way to young for me (Hey, I can still fantisize!) by saying "Excuse me grandpa" as he butted in. I looked at him and asked him his mothers maiden name. He asked why. I told him if I looked like his grandfather, it was possible that I knew his mother and was in fact his father even if I personally did not believe I could sire someone as ugly as him. I may be 59 years old and walk with a cane, but I still look bad enough to not mess with for unimportant things like verbal sparing, and besides the lady we were both interested in giggled at my response, ignored him and resumed talking to me. When women are attractive, even talk is better than nothing, and I can still fantisize.

Oh . . . I'm sorry bountyhunter. . . are you claiming to be the ONLY good-looking fellow here or what?!!
<img src="/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

By the way . . . Did you genuinely invent that put-down yourself Bounty, or is it from a film/book . . . Because it's Ace!

Anyway, just reading the latest EPIC accounts of the individuals pulling through the latest 'global' earthquake plus the recent cave rescue story posted by Frenchy in our Campfire forum, you've got to admit ATTITUDE is numero uno!

And I pray that I too will have a fraction of the courage that we've read/seen recently on the TV, news, and newspapers and read about here too.

Arde:

Other than in my bio., I don't recall pushing my good-looking aspect more than 5 or 6 hundred times, and it was nowhere in the previous post.

The bit about being the guys daddy probably came out of some old movie I saw, but his lead-in "grandpa" remark made it real easy to use. The bit about my not being able to sire someone as ugly as him was original to the best of my recollection.

For the record, if he had pushed the issue to a physical confrontation, he would probably have beat me to a puddle, but with the pains I have, getting new pains would only end up relocating my pain, and not increasing it, which makes it easier for me to be obstinate.

I'd like to add some shelter stuff to your list, just for extra convenience. So that brings me to...

1. Knife
2. MFS
3. Poncho
4. Pot
5. Cord

I know somebody already posted this combo, because I recorded it long ago. In its original form:

ka-bar
MFS
pot
550 paracord

With a good knife, you can make shelter (at least in most places) <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

While I think having shelter is convinent too, he said bare essentials. My list (near the bottom) is pretty much the same as Brians; knife, fire, water

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, some day, I wanna buy you a cold one... great comeback, and the cane's a pretty good equalizer with a little bit of practice <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />.
