I've shot, skinned out and made clothes from a bunch of polartechs. They're pretty common around here and make warm clothes. Also trapped and skinned a few polyesters for longies. Both of 'em are lousy eatin' so I feed 'em to the dogs, but they make warm and fuzzies.

Pete, this is what we're waiting for. I'll use it as my main, checked, bag on this trip and also use it for some of our cold-weather gear (it was -24F up there this morning, with a wind chill of -54F). We have, of course, rented the really heavy-duty stuff: parkas, boots, pants. Ain't cheap to rent, but the parka we rent costs USD 650.00 and we'd have to get it home/up there. Renting is lots cheaper, and we already have outerwear sufficient for where we live.

The alternative is to use our "great gray whale" duffle, which has backpack straps and no wheels. It's nice, but not for lugging through airports and onto buses and things.

Also, we have both sent to our friend Mary a box containing about 20 pounds each of our heavier cold gear -- and we'll ship them back before we fly home. This includes expedition weight base layers, balaclavas, gauntlet gloves, boots, and so forth.

Thanks, Rap, it was the wheels that threw me. I used to have a small duffle bag which I used to carry my books, etc., when I was at secondary school. Had a shoulder strap and a drawstring around the opening and very handy it was too as I recall.

"ugly green in color"? Grunt! Airmen, Canuck Airmen at least, RCAF, had blue duffle bags.

Shorthand for "duffle bag", which is or was a heavy canvas bag, ugly green in color, in which soldiers carried all their worldly possessions, or at least the crap they didn't immediately need. Also known to the Navy and Marines as a "sea bag." The top folded over in quarters onto a loop of metal and the strap clipped to the loop (that was also where you put a padlock). There was also a carrying handle. Your name and serial number were stenciled on the side. Newer models also had/have a back-pack straps arrangement. If you see a picture of GIs "shipping out" who are carrying heavy bags on their shoulders, those are duffle bags.

One of the nastier things Those In Charge could do as punishment would be to give an offending squad or platoon 30 minutes to pack up their duffle bags and fall out for inspection in fatigue clothing. Then you give them another 30 minutes to unpack and be ready for an inspection in the barracks in Class A uniform. Then you change it to an inspection of their full field kit 30 minutes later. Because nobody can get themselves, their equipment, and their barracks ready for inspection in 30 minutes you could find "good reasons" to put the entire group on restriction and extra cleaning duty until they passed your inspection. As a Platoon Sergeant and Acting Platoon Leader (no officer available) I would NEVER have even thought of doing such a thing, much less doing it.

What we have coming is made of heavy-duty nylon, with wheels, and is about 30 inches long with a side-opening zipper. The entire unit weighs about a quarter or less of the ol' original duffle bag. Briefly, it's a big bag with a set of wheels.

What's a duffle, precisely? US Dictionary just says "sporting or camping equipment".

I found a good quality name-brand duffle with robust wheels at Target years ago. I'd loan you mine if you were nearby. You could go to Target to see if they still carry them - I'd pay with cash if I were you.

No, I guess I only have the stamina I had at 25 years old. I can barely run a 6-minute-mile anymore without sweating and panting. As for parachute jumping, well, that was well behind me even at 25. No longer can I hump an M-60 machine gun and 250 rounds and four grenades and a .45 with 3 magazines of ammo and some claymore mines and TNT up and down mountains, for a) I don't have any of the foregoing and b) I don't want any and c) running around with all that crap would get me arrested toot sweet. I cannot stay up all night boozing and playing Crazy Eights until Dawn gives me the rosy finger anymore.

Alas, for lost youth!!!

Now I even drink whiskey from a glass instead of the bottle! Alack! I shall sit on the porch of the Old Farts' Home, gumming my gum as I rock in the ol' rocking chair, occasionally making a lewd comments at the passing young ladies until those nice folks in white uniforms take me back inside for beddy-byes.

No more shall I rappel down cliffs using clothesline and no harness! No more will I allow firecrackers to explode in my fingers! No more will I throw a hatchet at a tree and have it bounce back! No more 100 proof vodka drank from the bottle while driving 100+ miles per hour! No more stolen, unprotected, kisses in the backseat of a 1932 Pontiac! No more for me the dangers of getting VD from toilet seats and doorknobs!

Alas and alack!!

I'm working on what to have for dinner and the laundry while trying to figure out the packing for the Aurora-watching trip without the Big Wheeled Duffle we ordered and which hasn't arrived yet...and I'm still lacking in stamina after the surgery 11 days ago. Some people have time to watch television! I wish I had time to watch television. Here I am newly arisen from my sick bed, working and slaving away, just trying to keep things going.

In the last six months I have dug out photos for five different individuals with significant relationships with my employer (the library). I had to do that again today.

ELEGY WRITTEN IN A TEXAS JUNKYARD

The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,

The weary pickup on the black-top rolls,

The weary driver glances once away,

And drives the pickup straight into a pole..


Now bends the chromium bumper on the front,

And all the air a solemn stillness holds,

Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight,

And tinkling headlights crumble in the cold.


The parking stanchion now is bowed and bent

Unto the lingering sunset does complain

This truck, mis-guided and mis-spent,

Has sadly marred her solitary reign.



Beneath the engine-hood, now creased and bended

The engine beats its fitful, faithful tune

But faith, once broken, is not quickly mended

And new wheels will replace the old truck soon.


For all its loyal service now is ended

And trust to rust will run, however hard

Farewell, first truck she e'er befriended!

We'll meet again, beyond the wrecker's yard.

Borrowed, good Amos? I cited my source, my friend and fellow Idaho Legionaire Ford Rambler. He is quite learned and is often called upon to "say a few words" at funerals, for toasts, etc. and rarely does he make a mistake and say something like, "Here's to you...you got just what you deserved and we all agree that now the world's a better place for it!" at a funeral instead of a celebration honoring a promotion (as happened just last week). No, Legionaire Rambler's words fall trippingly off his tongue or pen, and are usually appropriate for the occasion.

Granted his vast repetoire of arcanity is less than my own, but I never, when in the military and given the order, "Dress right, DRESS!" reached inside my trousers to adjust my "dress" instead of straightening the line as Private Rambler once did. Nor did I respond to the question of a Drill Instructor, his face only a couple of inches from my own, "DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PUKE? with "Did you know that you have bad breath?"

Ford's verses have not yet been published, but several submissions have been made.

An Elegy and an Epithet for Stilly's Truck
             by Ford Rambler
Here rests its hood upon the lap of earth
A truck to fortune and to fame unknown.
Fair automotive science frowned not on its humble birth,
And nigh a Sesquidecade marked it for her own.

Large was its capacity, and its tranny sincere,
Heaven did a recompense as largely send:
It gave to Stilly all it had, a tear,
It gained from her ('twas all it wished), a friend.

No farther seek its merits to disclose,
Or draw its frailties from their dread abode,
(There they alike in trembling hope repose)
The bosom of the junkyard, and its end.

Someone must compose an elegy to my nearly departed pickup truck. I creased the front bumper, grill, and front of the hood yesterday in a parking lot at work. The signpost stanchion won. Slow moving, no airbag, just a plain silly accident that is the end for this 14-year-old pickup. I was looking to the left as I rolled into it straight in front of me. I know the insurance company will total it and offer low cash, so rather than have a claim I'll trade it in for a used car to drive in the meantime.

When Lil's husband got demobbed, I said,        
I didn't mince my words, I said to her myself,        
HURRY UP PLEASE ITS TIME        
Now Albert's coming back, make yourself a bit smart.        
He'll want to know what you done with that money he gave you        
To get yourself some teeth. He did, I was there.        
You have them all out, Lil, and get a nice set,        
He said, I swear, I can't bear to look at you.        
And no more can't I, I said, and think of poor Albert,        
He's been in the army four years, he wants a good time,        
And if you don't give it him, there's others will, I said.        
Oh is there, she said. Something o' that, I said.
Then I'll know who to thank, she said, and give me a straight look.        
HURRY UP PLEASE ITS TIME        
If you don't like it you can get on with it, I said,        
Others can pick and choose if you can't.        
But if Albert makes off, it won't be for lack of telling.
You ought to be ashamed, I said, to look so antique.        
(And her only thirty-one.)        
I can't help it, she said, pulling a long face,        
It's them pills I took, to bring it off, she said.        
(She's had five already, and nearly died of young George.)
The chemist said it would be alright, but I've never been the same.        
You are a proper fool, I said.        
Well, if Albert won't leave you alone, there it is, I said,        
What you get married for if you don't want children?        
HURRY UP PLEASE ITS TIME        
Well, that Sunday Albert was home, they had a hot gammon,        
And they asked me in to dinner, to get the beauty of it hot?        
HURRY UP PLEASE ITS TIME        
HURRY UP PLEASE ITS TIME        
Goonight Bill. Goonight Lou. Goonight May. Goonight.
Ta ta. Goonight. Goonight.        
Good night, ladies, good night, sweet ladies, good night, good night.

Two-twenty-nine posts, two-twenty-nine posts,
two-twenty-nine posts onward,
All in the valley of Fifty Kay
Rode the brave MOABites.
"Forward, the MOABites!
"Charge for the fifty kay!" he said:
Into the valley of BS
Rode the brave MOABites.

2.

"Forward, the MOABites!"
Was there anyone dismay'd?
Not tho' the MOABites knew
No one had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to post and fly:
Into the valley of Fifty Kay
Rode the brave MOABites.

3.

Politics to right of them,
Flame wars to left of them,
Incivility in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the brave MOABites.

4.

Flash'd all their wit laid bare,
Flash'd as they turn'd to air,
All the predictions there,
Charging an army, while
All Mudcat wonder'd:
Plunged in the BS smoke
Right thro' the record they broke;
GUEST and other trolls
Reel'd from the witty strokes
Shatter'd and sunder'd.

5.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild record they made!
All Mudcat wondered.
Honor the record they made,
Honor the MOABites,
Noble two-twenty-nine!

Two hundred thirty posts ahead,
A long and tortured way,
OF grumpy farts, and broken hearts,
And clever things to say,
Before the mighty MOAB stream
Achieves her Fifty Kay.

Two hundred thirty different posts!
It seems an awful task,
And we'll run out of answers glib
And questions sly to ask.
And scrape our brains for tattered thoughts
To sledge her on the way
Along the grinding, bumpy road
To reach her Fifty Kay.

But think on this, my MOAB friends,
The celebration roar!
We few--we valiant few--will do
What none have done before.
We'll set a record high as high
No other thread could sway
And glory will rain down on those
Who make the Fifty Kay.

So rub your skulls, and squeeze your brains,
And set your minds to working!
No Facebook 'til your work is done,
No Linked-In circle-jerking.
When duty calls, the dullest lout
Must hasten to the fray!
And duty 'tis that calls you out
To the Fiftieth of Kay!
