    I called them today because this post reminded me that I need to let them know that we will be leaving a vehicle there. A real person speaking English answered on the first ring, can't beat that.

    Deacon, I think you just got lucky. I wouldn't follow this advice unless you had cheap walmart poles and you would be fine if you had to throw them away. It would kill me to have to toss my Leki's....
