The late Charlie Fowler on our way up the Compressor Route. RIP. Interestingly enough, it was a tip from Charlie that set me on the trail of the book project I've just finished... wish he were around to enjoy the final fruits of his lead...

Greg,
Enduring Patagonia inspires me to keep writing about my futile struggles in the low end alpine arena. When I get writer's block I often dust off the cover and dig in for for a dose of literary inspiration. Thanks for sharing your adventures with all of us hacks and scardeycats who may never get to gaze upon the patagonian icecap but have been there with you a time or two.

Welcome to the Supertango, land of hardmen, wierdos, heroes, never weres, deadbeats, misfits, hasbeens and may someday bes. Most of us are somewhere in between. Enjoy the show. Glad to have you on board.

Here's a taste of the kind of low budge writing you inpire:

See you around the Taco,

Well, I will cop to being excited out of my mind for China's Wings upcoming release...

Here's a little blurb that explains how an off the cuff remark of Charlie's helped launch the entire project http://gregcrouch.com/2010/fall-in-love-with-it

Plus, it's absolutely fabulous to learn that EP still has legs, and is still reaching people. For years I thought that book was a failure, as all I heard was silence, overwhelming silence, but once I joined facebook, all kinds of people have connected with me to share how much they've enjoyed it and been inspired by it... which actually ended up pulling me through when morale was pretty low...

Micronut, that's a pretty unique adventure, a winter Snake Dike. My friends Tom Lambert and Theresa Ho did that recently, too... a definite coup.

And Fattrad, I've been here for a decade. If you drew a line between Lunardi's and Larkey Park, I'd be sitting pretty close to the exact midpoint of that line right now.

Holy beJesus, TIM D? Theo and I were just talking about you the other day...


That was a great party, but it'll be eight years in May.

Hope you and yours are doing well... there's a rumor you're leaving CA... confirm or deny...

Denied for now, though things have been highly unsettled I'll e-mail you.

Here's a picture to atone for my thread drift:

No apology needed, Tim D. Psyched to hear from you. I don't even have a functioning email for you any more, so definitely check in. Theo and I would love to see you... been getting some screaming good surf lately.

Well, I've always said that taking pictures of Patagonia is a lot like taking pictures of Cindy Crawford: even when she looks bad, she looks pretty good.
