    Cheap Access to the backcountry.

    I'd been trying to come up with a way to get out the gates by Gad II and hit some that Tiger Tail goodness, but you have to check in with patrol and they want you to have an avalanche bacon. I couldn't afford one, but after a little research I found way around it. All you need are some old backpack straps (an easy find at DI) then go to a home center (like Lowes or Home Depot) and buy one of those studfinders with the little lights if you push a button on the side and the clip for going on a belt. They're only like 10 bucks. Then you clip it onto the old packback straps and wear it under your coat. When someone asks if you have a beacon open your coat just enough for them to see something in there. It works everytime. I'll try to post some pics in the next couple of days to show the process, but it's really easy. It actually looks pretty real.

    Since then it's been a book you read in reverse, so you understand less as the pages turn.

    The things you find on the net.

    Yep, I bet every dumb troller (or partner) would check for beacons by looking under your coat, rather than use his beacon on receive / test mode.

    So you are saying that if I lost my previous piece of avalanche bacon I could find it if I had another avalanche bacon?

    Avalanche dogs are really good at smelling out avalanche bacon. They don't need to see it either! Most people carry avalanche bacon near their crotch. You can tell, cause thats where the dogs sniff. If you're not going to carry an avy beacon, definitely carry the bacon.

    I know of at least one Snowbird Patroller that checks these boards. Way to fuck it up for yourself, they'll probably be checking everyone closer now. If this is for real...

    Since you're in detroit I don't think that will be a problem. I'm sure you have a lot of wet slides of corn filled poo.

    When there's a room full of people with beacons they actually do.

    Wow, I hope this is a joke.

    I can't believe someone would really be this stupid. I mean seriously stupid.
