These arrived in the mail yesterday. They're great! I have no idea when or if I'll get to Jtree, but that's a huge amount of info. Smith, now? Definitely a trip in the future!! Thanks, guys, keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to City of Rocks, my "localish" crag!

To the guy who creates these: Please stop soliciting sales in campgrounds on public land.  Not everyone wants you to barge into their campsite and try to sell beta- and I suspect you don't have a permit to vend these in a BLM campground where you hit me up.  

Thanks

 Haha.. wow. Too afraid to say this to the guys face so you write it here? Classic MP!

 Friends and I were having post day beers around the tailgate of my truck one day when a guy walks up and pitches us on the dog leashes he made. We pass him a beer and get the $20 together for the dog leash. He discussed how he made a bunch from a brand new 60M rope and where he was from. He started telling us about adopting his service dog and his PTSD. I was happy to help out someone who fought in a war and was fucked up from it.
What’s Price say? Everyone’s fighting a battle you know nothing about? Lighten up!

I told him I was not interested in his product- at all- and questioned his method.  So I am sitting around enjoying a late evening meal with friends in a campground on public land and I am solicited to purchase something- somewhat intensely- and I did not appreciate the experience. I don't think your comments are justified or constructive- my interest in commenting was out of enjoying a place and an experience on public lands without being aggressively solicited. Classic MP Bill.  I don't have anything else to say about the thread just some feedback for the owner of the business-

I’ve met Rick and Stefani a few times and they are great people. Kinda surprised to hear such a story. Assuming it was Rick you talked to and not some other random guy pedaling climb-on maps as a side hustle something.
