That was very interesting, Pat. I especially enjoyed the donut collection. Ten year old donuts? Ya' gotta luv it.

Great stuff in there, Pat!
The comments about fibreglass and carbon fibre virtually exploding at their failure point was an eyeopener.

10 year old donuts?

That would never happen in a police station. LOL

Just kidding, couldn't resist.

Beautiful ladders, and they seem to hold up very well.
