This is really cool. Jp and the kid recently took a trip to Portland and found this bag for me in their travels:
It's extra cool for me as my dad was a lineman for the railway in his late teens/early twenties. When we were kids, every now and again he'd bust out his spurs and climb a tree or pole - either to show us his skills or to do some major tree trimming. You'd think our dad walked on water - we were all in awe at how fast and easily he could shimmy up and down. In fact I remember one time when a neighbour watched him for a bit and wanted to try. My dad suited him up and up he went. He only got about 10' up before he was quivering and came back down. I guess my dad made it look pretty easy.
I bet if my mom saw this bag she'd want one too. Check out this catalog for other products.
