Can you confirm that BVB knows anything, much less exists?

The Ron-O photo looks suspiciously like an OUCH product. *snicker*

Notice how Nature always seizes the opportunity to make exagerated claims about his, ..uh,..er,.. equipment.

I was going to start a thread to ask Jello the following question but perhaps this thread is appropriate.

Hey Jeff, are you still an owner of Lowe Alpine or involved in the company? Several months back the Lowe Alpine store in Dublin closed and was replaced by a North Face outlet.

Were outlets such as the Dublin one owned by the company or were they franchises/independents that were licensed to use the Lowe Alpine brand?

Just curious.

Nature, yours are the most appetising posts on the Taco!

Patrick-

My brothers, Mike and Greg sold Lowe Alpine to an English company back in 1988. No Lowe has been involved since then. I only had about a 3% interest, so no real say in things. We set up Lowe Alpine International, with the help of an IDA grant in the early '80's in Tullamore. All the packs for European distribution were produced, there, until the end of the decade, when competitive pressures forced additional sourcing from eastern bloc countries and Asia.

Lowe Alpine is currently owned by the Italian family that also ownes Asolo. I've been trying to convince them for a couple of years that they need a real Lowe involved to help revive the brand.

Wow... Jeff, thanks for the compliment. Fow what it's worth, Deuce may very well get to sample the goods very soon and not just have to be teased by photos.

We need to organize a large climbers SushiFest.

Since Jello can't come up with a picture of his own here's a picture of the burn that the paddles left on me:



Eat well and exercise every day.
