HAHA! I remember working at the Roseville shop. Safety rule required us to cut the hammer loop off. For good reason, as a mechanic you really NEVER use that thing, but now I dont work there and here I am building a house, and I cant put my hammer there!
It’s o.k. for you to splurge on a new pr. of pants now.

I always just roll up my straps and put electrical tape to hold it, gets all glue-y but it doesn't bother me

Ya, I run into alot of people who just cut that excess strap off to save 'weight' or because they are annoying. But I have run into to many situations where I have needed to make my pack stap to bigger objects, like a bike, MC, or need to stuff more stuff on the outside or something. So I say keep the straps, roll em up and tape em like you said, or tuck them in somewhere safe.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
