    JB flow is up!

    Back in the late 90's JB was a kicker. Like Gennie, you have to learn to read the cave or you are not going far. Of course far shouldn't be the goal anyway. Just enjoy what nature has done.

    FS: Faber LP 95's and LP 131's

    I’m interested in those double 95s, is there any chance I can try them out in cave country before I buy? Happy to pay for your fees + fills + lunch regardless.

    Fs: UV-18 DPV

    This is a great deal. It could be converted to Lithium, or just replace the original battery.
