in the last 36 hours,
i've worked 26.

i'm turning in shop drawings
for a parking garage forming system
3 days early.

i'm climbing in the morning with a good friend.

i've only had drinks twice in the past two months.
i'm getting a stronghold on my relation with booze.

i'm gonna pour me a 1/2 shot
of bourbon and sit in my outdoor rocker
and listen to the wind that i've earned.

i was laying in a warm bath,
listening to the doors,
"sunday trucker christian mother f*#ker!"

and due to a mild state of exhaustion,
i imagined that i was laying in the same
water in which the old lizard king took his final bath.

and too, spiritually we are similar to parking garages,
in that both channel stress to a concrete location,
a structural centroid, if you will.

this stress needs to find an escape,
so we introduce isolation joints
in the load path
to unbind the garage.

good night.

Really awful Verdicchio.

But to get something else, I'd need to leave the house and I so don't want to leave the house.

Wish I was having some of the white Phyl and I had last weekend, and for that matter, that I was back in the meadows this weekend instead of doing homework for school next weekend. <sigh>

At the SLC Outdoor Retailer show I enjoyed a few minutes with Jeff Lowe & Connier Self. They were in town for a screening of a final cut of Jeff's film project: Metanoia!

I missed the screening and I have to work, and it so good to see those folks!

Best wishes to Jeff Lowe & Connie Self!

Happy Hour at the crag. Who loves 90 foot wall? Who loves it on a Friday after work with a good buddy, a 12 of Sierra Cans, a flask of bullit rye, some PDQ deli sandwiches, the best dog, bivy gear andthe biggest moon in history? Me. I do. Gnite from the crag.

I just emailed Jebus and asked if I could borrow his rape whistle.

Brava pussy beers for me, and Muskoka Double IPA for the REAL beer drinker.

We got rained out of the Sawtooths at 9:00 AM this morning, actually the Stanley motel we retreated to, after getting rained out of our camp two days ago.

Hey, Fritz, is the Waldorf Hysteria still in Stanley? There really was one
there BITD, right in the middle of town. Prolly something far more prosaic
there now. I think I had a pic of it at one time.

Reilly? Re your question?

Hey, Fritz, is the Waldorf Hysteria still in Stanley?


My direct knowledge of Stanley only goes back to the early 1960's, although my mother's most adventurous sister lived on a "starvation-ranch" up-river from Stanley in the late 1930's. She had some great adventure & adversity stories.

I think what you are referring to was: Reno hotel king Bill Harrah's Mountain Village resort, which included a decent motel, eatery, grocery store, & service station in Upper Stanley pop. 66. Bill owned a wilderness "getaway" 60 miles north on the Middle Fork Salmon, and apparently decided to improve Stanley's infrastructure for his trips to wilderness.

It and much of Stanley is now up for sale, but Stanley still is a darn fun slice of Idaho.

There are now better motels & eateries than at Mountain Village, but their service station saved my ass this morning.

Here's a link to an article on Stanley:
