My only negative impression from the whole affair was the behavior in the sushi line.


would you mind expanding on this comment? it seemed pretty civil to me from my perspective.


Maybe I just couldn't see over the huge piles of fish?!?!

the food was so good that it was hard to move away and make room for more fish eating freaks,

you need a cashier with a knife, that box looked light.

It was civil and darn polite and orderly, but there were a couple of folks that parked themselves at the periphery of the table munching down and then horning in again blocking the flow for everyone else. I guess you are always going to have one or two in every crowd. Everyone else was to polite to tell them to move on.

You were way to busy to notice. It was obvious from my perspective grillside.

You guys did a great job!

Lynne, Mimi and who was that that stepped in later to help? You all deserve a big,

THANK YOU!

That was an impossible amount of food to produce.

We need two grills and marinade next time.

It was great to talk with Jim and think of the timelessness of the things he accomplished and the ideals he stands for. To purchase one of his haulbags was an honor. I didn't realize there would be a slide show, when did he do that? Or did he do it? I had to go about 7:30.

His name is Nathan and I am sure he is pretty busy with all the photos he took plus he had to drive back to SLC

so if you see Jim Bridwell driving around in a beat up buick,

it is because i lost my keys and somebody mailed them in.

but these guys do make it easier to keep track of things,

Nathan Smith will more than likely post a link to his blog with the photo's. Give him about a week for this is what it took him to post 2010 Mt. Woodson Shindig photo's.

Bumped space for pics later. Off to burger night at The Deluxe.

Have to say that this was one of the funnest 4-day parties I've ever attended! I hadn't been to Josh since the late 80s and it was as glorious as I remembered it to be.

That Yosemite rescue dude, aka Mr. Midwest, powering up The Flake.


Steve pondering the missing bolts on the ghastly start of Double Cross.

Steve's first trip to Josh. We'll be back! Didn't even scratch the surface.

Here's Steve doing the 5.9+ dumbass variation on The Flue (5.8).


Anders doing it correctly. Because he is no dummy, that Anders.

BridwellFest sure was a great time.

Thanks Jim, for letting Wired Bliss be a part.

Todd, thanks for putting on the event to help Jim, the support and the table space.

Ron G, Thanks for the support. I am working on your own BFest cam.

Thanks to Tucker and Dick C. for some history and gear lessons.

Thanks to all the others for the great conversations on gear.



Here is a group pic from Todd's knee during his intro.
