Re: What do you want to see in the future?

... I am having trouble keeping the design simple. The spare air thing would definitely be a specialty item. Not all people that downhill ski carry avalanche beacons/air bags. Could be looked at similarly.

Re: DIY breakdown paddle

... to keep it from being jiggly and from me accidently "opening" my paddle. if REI or somewhere like that has a repair/rental desk that deals with avalanche shovels, they may sell 'em or just give you one of of those springy buttons.

Re: An HQ series of videos for everyone worth watching.

Well done everyone.Thanks so much.To me it's similar to avalanche awareness and preparedness, take a course then practice and review prior to each season and this enables the helpful tips,reminders and review everyone can utilize.

Thanks.

... to spend big bucks. Pat. p.s. Those push-button things were easy to find at any decent place that sells paddling or skiing gear (they use them in avalanche shovels). I got mine from Mountain Equipment Co-op. If they don't just give 'em too you, they cost $1-2.

I have similar thinking sometimes when I'm assessing a river situation or avalanche terrain etc. - if I died and made headlines, would it be an embarassment to me (not that it matters to me at that point), and would my friends say "he knew better" or would my ...
