Doug has been caught trying to plant evidence up on Temple Crag this weekend as proof for his Atomic Broom theory that the Sierras were cleaned by A-blasts in Nevada for about 25 years. Itís a bitter moment for American Climbing as we all love him but to apprehend him fabricating proof for his unique conjecture is beyond the capacity of most to forgive and does call into question the veracity of all previous of his suppositions.

sorry, just posting out loud.

just because the evidence was planted, doesn't mean that it's not true!

No sweeping this one under the relative "rug"!

Another good one, Peter!

Ding, it's all because I haven't had any construction projects for six months so I am home a lot doing Creative Suite 4 / Photoshop tutorials, and so I do these kooky images for a break, you know. It is incredibly fun. thanks btw. The Donini ones were incredibly fun to do.

Well, I bet he can't prove it isn't true - so doesn't that mean it's true? No need for junk science or conspiracy theories or anything.

And about those ferocious giant bloodthirsty Canadian wolves in Idaho... Note that there aren't any in the Sierra, which right by itself is proof that someone in California is out to get RokJox.

Very funny story, Peter! And cool artwork! I almost fell for it thinking we'd all be throwing in for Doug's bail! LOL! He's more stealth than that though.

Missed the original thread last year. Thanks for posting it. An interesting concept with an especially fun dialogue around it.

Thank you Rokjox - I enjoy your stories very much and read all of them. Some are quite imaginative and entertaining.

Any proof that your friend's dog was killed by a wolf? Might it not have been coyotes, a cougar, or a bear - all of which, unlike wolves, are found throughout Idaho? Have any wolves been reliably sighted in the area where the dog was killed?

Simply finding the dog's head seems scant 'proof' that wolves were involved.

Did I mention that my mother, a school librarian, was a huge fan of Little Red Riding Hood? She had a giant collection of related books and memorabilia, which will eventually form a display at UBC. Wolves make good stories, whatever the truth.

Maybe Doug Robinson ate your dog.
Or Dingoes.

I vote for dingo's. Silent but deadly. My old dog was part Dingo, and he was the best hunting dog you've ever seen and smarter then most humans.

Seems testing in Nevada had a more insidious effect on the Sierra- the climbing population anyway. Hmmmm... radiation and the development, or deformity, of the cerebral cortex.
