Anybody remember the good old days when the Camp 4 parking lot had the nice wood cookspots?


Then, a few years later:

Check out Werner's old van in the first photo from 1980.

Fixed the bottom photo a little John.


And the yellow antifreeze bottle next to you; was back when you drink anti freeze to toughen up your system for the future.

That yellow VW. I used to have one of those and I called it the "Turd" because it was blunt on one end and tapered on the other.

I was always partial to the Lodge lot as a home. Here's Galen sitting on the hood of his bug which he converted into a camper by yarding out the passenger seat and building a wooden locker that doubled as a bed. Too short shorts as a bonus for BVB.

Most of you probably do not remember me from off and on from 1974-1977, as I wasn't a top climber or anything and would only hang out for a month or so at a time, though I have partied with some of you, but I'd bet some of you will remember a 1948 Ford pickup with a home-made wooden camper and a psychedelic paint job (from sanding it down through all the paint jobs it had over the years and then painting it over with shellac). Bridwell said he loved that truck. It sure got me pulled over enough times going from the Valley to the East Bay, especially in Manteca, Escalon and Oakdale.

Sure wish I could find a photo of that truck.

"Here's Galen sitting on the hood of his bug" As in Rowell? Doesn't really look like him... Someone else?

Walleye-

Wot a memory! Yep, that's my old VW van probably before it ever had an engine. What a great bivy that was.

That's Mugs Stump, Lynn (Mug's girlfriend at the time)and Steve Quinlan on the sedan. Steve and I had just finished climbing Tribal Rite in full-on winter conditions.

The picture of the wooden "benches" jogged my memory a bit for sure; I lived across the street in the Annex lot when those were last there.

I previously posted these shots from the early 80's back in the Mussy Nebula threads:
