"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way."

PeaceOut!

hey there say...

i am remembering 'doug' (of alaska alpine) and how he showed up here,
suddenly, one day, and:


STIRRED THE TACO WATERS...
:)


no one knew what to think, at first...

he was really something, and, turned out-- someone very special...
NOW-- from all that:

his wife, feralfae, joined in... i am so very thankful to say,
she is a wonderful dear friend...



and, then-- we learned about jeff batten and his
earthquake machine...

:( and, sadly, of his death, too early...



and, NEAR the time, when i first got on (just after?)--
bobby model, his life in the 'balance' was 'top' on the forum...
the love for him, from SO many, made the
supertopo FAMOUS in the news, SOMEWHERE in some article...


so much happened here...


and, i remember woody-- he wanted to read my books...
he died, though, soon after, and i never knew if he did...

however, a gal that found him (with his broken foot) well:
she has become one of my best and dear friends...

she never knew him-- but, her trail happened to lead to him, and
she was able to help him get help...



she, just 'somehow' found the supertopo... and shared her story...
(unless she used to visit her?, on her on-- and recognized the story
and, thus, shared how she found him) ...



there was-- MAGIC here and a 'river of life' ...


i found a whole wonderful world, here, one night, when i was very lonely, after moving from south texas-- and needed some company...
and-- saw my brothers name ON LINE, and it was connected to
some place called:

SUPERTOPO...
and, it all just fell into place...
a huge thank you to 'chicken skinner' and werner, for
when i first stepped into this 'river' ...


oh, there is just SO MUCH!!

johntp, and his work, and with jody, and others to
'save my robin shed'...

and, the oil paints, from a gracious johntp...

and, so much, from all of you!


thank you all!
too many to list, right now... you are all dear and important...
thank you, for every stone and rock, that build so many 'new climbs' in my life...

:)





edit:
ahhahaha, say, ekat-- have not had a chance to sample 'nature's fish'
yet...

but-- i have a jacket from him, and one of his old pocket cameras!
i treasure them! though-- they are NOT fishy, ;)
