I need one of these. How hard would it be to fabricate? I don't actually need the hook I need to shoot a weight over something and hoist a flag.

Wow I really thought grappling hook technology would have advanced. What do you guys think about a bow and with a washer instead of a point?

Or maybe a slingshot and a nut?

That was my first thought as well. Tie a washer to a length of fishing line, tie the fishing line to a length of string, tie the string to a length of rope, etc. etc. so you just have to fling the washer over your target then pull the line until you get to the rope.

Holy crap STP already had a thread with a diy grappling hook tech. That's why I love this site.

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
