Roger, you've been hanging around the toddlers too long, man. Kool-aid is like, so yesterday.

Eat the pudding, man, eat the pudding!

Didja know that the original Kool-Aid was labelled "Fruit Smack"? Makes you think.

Can't speak as to the kool aid though the purple flavor wasn't bad, but I think this time around it was "eat the biscuits and gravy!"

Back on topic, I do recall one trip where the rope bag was handy. Didn't want to leave the rope in the hole as I climbed, so stuffed it in the rope bag as I went.

Now, I do have one rope bag, and I use that rope mostly for practice (use my friends rope IN the caves) and have a knot on the inside and outside of the bag. (inside so the bag can't fall off when dropped down a hole and the other inside otherwise I've seen a bunch of the rope outside the wrong end of the bag; which sort of negates the point. :-)

Rope bags have their place, top of pits, big open passages and such.
But if you need to get rope thru tight passage, a coiled rope is much easier to maneuver.
