    Kinda like when both power tubes go bad on the same gig. What are the odds?

    Dang,
    Stuff just don't last like it used to.
    I tore my favorite pair in Titusville Fla a few weeks ago climbing in a B-52 bomber cockpit at the Warbird museum. At least they went out doing something noble.
    You ought burn them , sorta Viking funeral send off.

    Just a little natural relicing.
    Plenty of years left in them.

    I had that happen, late last year.

    I forgot to use a belt and the shorts legs each slid down another half inch over the last time I wore them - I had lost some weight. I squatted to pick up a piece of wood off the ground and both tore out.

    In fairness, the area in the front was close to threadbare anyway.

    I cut off all the cloth and still use them as before. Actually, I cut those "cargo" pockets off of there while I was at it. Don't need them and don't use them.
