  • A long walking stick prefer wood was ash, lite yet hard, its a Englishman weapon of choice. I haven't found any exact measurements but it was about the height of the person and about 1 and 1/2 inch thick. Some were cladded with a metal end for more durability and less wear, the travelers weapon of choice.

  • Many many years ago, I carefully selected my 1st wooden dowel ....... available in a lumber yard or lumber department typically use in closets to hang clothes. Just cut the dowel down to the length that suites your frame and needs.

    Very useful and effective tool out on the trail and around the house.

    They didn't have schools at the time, period. Children were apprenticed, if they were lucky, and you were lucky to live past 40. I hardly think it was better then.

    I swear you're actually Roland. The literal explanation of any joke and/or satire is a dead give away.

    Roland is a grammar Nazi. I'm just a grammar benevolent dictator. Besides, he's way to obsessed with being considered the smartest guy in the room.
