OK ladies, here's your chance to hang with The (one and only) Hardman™.

But please take it easy. Since I'm kind of old, I can only handle the company of two or three at a time...

I will be making an appearance at The Spaceship area from around the 19th Dec
till a few days after New Years. Yes, we will be hogging all the fuçking best spots, as usual...

I shudder to think

Hmmm. That was a tightly cropped part of a 5382 X 3672 image @ 300 DPI.

Should I e-mail him the original 56 MB scan to work with?

Hey Locker, where's the cheapest place to get PBR in cans these days?

I thought the pic was rather flattering...

I just got a twelver of PBR at Albertson's in Sac for 3.99. Haven't seen good beer that cheap in years, heh heh.

Don't worry about the welcoming committee, we will deploy locker to your campsite Dec. 19.

It is some species of bird with a real high voice, possibly a parakeet. :)

See that rack? That was HK getting ready for a nasty two-pitch route on a dome in the Courtright area. Climb was so vicious he used about two pieces off that rack and then we free-soloed the last pitch. LOL!

Thanks for the laugh and the nice photoshop job shack!

I've saved the original as after, and the pot bellied little arm version as before to show to design students what you can really do with Photoshop!

Damn. Wish I'd be there. I'd give you a !@#$% J-Tree welcome. Where will you be staying - just in case?

Oh, and the artwork above - - priceless!!!

And, I thought your photo was flattering too Hardman. Thank God Locker doesn't like it or he'd try to do ya!

I can't believe I missed out on this thread last night....Ouch! - That was your best effort yet(though prolly HK doesn't agree....).

PBR is *not* good beer, no matter how cool it was in Billyburg about 5 years ago... Believe me, as a child growing up in Wisconsin, supposed beer capitol of the U.S., home of the infamous Budweiser Clydesdales(which are the only good thing about Bud), I can tell you I tasted them all. Hamm's, Bud, Pabst Blue Ribbon, People's.......They were all barely drinkable, and even as a burgeoning alcoholic, I knew better. Now....Pete's Wicked Ale, on the other hand, which is of course not brewed in that sorry excuse for a brewing state - talk about things that make you go hmmmmmm.....

Knott - looks like your Welcome to JTree thread is the best of them yet!

18 packs of PBR bottles at Albertson's on Sierra Madre Blvd going for $6.99. Beat that!

Not to mention PBR on tap at Joe Jost's.

Gary –– thanks for the tip! And I thought 12-pack cans for $6.00 was a good deal...

I will be hanging with the usual suspects in HV very near The Spaceship.
I have a friend who cut down a small hard-wood tree in his yard, and most of it will
be shipped down there in 2 to 3 vehicles. The last time I was there I had over 300 lbs of split
eucalyptus in my little Hyundai––nice to have wood that actually burns for more than a few minutes!

Nice work guys! LOL. Ouch, you will burn in the Islamic Hell for that depiction!
Shack, I thought I was fat at 6' tall and 163 lbs, but that's just mean!!
Crimpergirl, get down there ASAP. We need to get some shots of you leading something
(even if it's Locker on a leash).
