Well, next thing I need to do is inventory my mountain gear

And make sure we get a new rope...a twenty year old line is not something I'd trust my life to.

We will be covering the back country in winter as well. Having good rope and all that is a good idea.

Funny thing, we have the capacity to get to the back country, which our competitors really do not.

1. The pro rule of thumb is replace every five years, or sooner.

Replace at the first sign of wear or damage, or five years, whichever comes first.

Even kept in a bag on a shelf in closet, the shelf life for nylon is said to be ten years.

Twenty years, I'm glad you're replacing your old line!

Be safe!

4. Good luck and stay safe!

I'm aware that you have climbed most of the mountains in the world on your many adventures(including that time you rescued that class of 6th graders from Mt. McKinley), but Mt. Everest can be a tough one! Many have perished.
So, please take care!

6. hella yeah

you're going to do this, you'd better have the top gear for your own sake. Snowmobiles? They ARE fun but go slow and steady out on those rocks . . .

8. I just want to have a full kit

In the jeep. No snowmobile here. I used to do rescue, why I got the gear, and know how to use it.

It has not been used in a long time. So time to inventory and replace what needs replacing. (Which is most of it...I need a helmet too)

Are you a survivalist?

9. Nope...but read the OP

We're reporters. So at times, when you go away from the storm, we go towards it.

I used to do rescue for real... And as we inventoried the basic stuff you need to carry when driving in winter weather, we both went...time to inventory the mountain rescue gear (and most likely) replace most of it.

If in the course of a story I come across a major accident, I can actually help...many moons ago I got to rappel down one of them hills and start care before local VFD got there. Used to carry a full trauma kit in the car. Need to actually increase the size of the first aid kit.
