Y'all got some 'core old ladies!



I report to her:


She kicks my ass on free moves, burns me on endurance and still has energy for b/c homemaking. I'm eternally humbled by [and grateful for] the Weasel.



Nice series revival, TB!

Yup Quartz,
Racing flats for events on trails that go primarily up, up, up & finish on a summit.

Oh wow. TarB has done it again. A fine thread!
Wanda Rutkiewicz was one of my all time heros. What an amazing person who happened to also be quite a woman.

Here is my spousal unit at the crux of Green Spur in Eldo

And at the top of the West Buttress in Eldo

It was a hauling accident involving a Protraxion.

Yes she is!!!

It was simply a momentary lapse of reason.

While I was space hauling the bags they became stuck. Juli being the go getter that she is started pulling on the loaded side of the haul system in an effort to free the bags. Bags came suddenly free and with my weight on the other end it pulled the rope through the Protraxion and her hand with it. She was very close to losing the next finger in line.

This summer I finally got all the blood out of the Protraxion, took 2 years.
