Your comment seems a bit off color given the circumstances, Moose. But it's also easier to kick when they're down, I won't begrudge you that.

Well, thank you!

But, really???

'Hubris:í the country of no old men...

quite the ironic quote embedded in the initial post.

pretty sure that writing a public letter to another human telling him/er what s/he is or isn't capable of, is one of the defining examples of hubris...

so more correctly it should have been:

'Hubris:' the country of at least one old man...

when i was soloing a lot there was always this feeling of invincibility. i could do no wrong. there was also the deep down acceptance that i really didn't care, life or death.

yeah, that's the problem....if you are going to solo then make sure if you fall you are killed instantly

your relatives don't want to spend years gazing at you in a vegetative, brain-damaged condition, while you grow pus-filled bedsores, and eventually die of sepsis or double pneumonia
