We all have a lot to learn from this guy. He shows us happiness and grace in the face of real challenges. Barbara and I were out visiting with him a few days ago, and like Happie says, he has a totally positive attitude.

About two weeks ago a fellow at the pit named Max and Clark and I went up and did Sail Away and some of those face climbs near there on Wailing Wall. It was a great day.

Strong vibes of goodness your way Clark, keep on climbing and may your essential kindness and karmic high standing translate to a positive outcome.

I will contribute to any fundraising effort for Clark's benefit.

Can't wait to get back down to that neck of the woods and get some more of that old fashioned salty dog's advice on love, life and climbing.

I've spoken with the folks at FOJT and they are on it. It will likely take the weekend to get things up and running, but as soon as it is ready, I'll post up.

As far as fundraising parties go, I'm going to leave that to people and powers far greater than myself.

I would like to make my intentions very clear on this fundraiser for Clark. After what happened to the John Long effort, I want things to be very clear.

I purposely chose the Friends Of Joshua Tree because it's a known entity. I know the members of the board, and there should be no issues of where the funds are going.

They are going to Clark.

For those that choose to donate through the site, there will be a small processing fee. Other than that, all moneys donated will go directly to him.

If you wish to avoid the online transaction fees and wish to send him a check, that information will be available.

There is an additional benefit to this process that will come to light in a few days. We are almost there. I just spoke with one of the board members and a few tweaks need to be made.

I promise to keep everyone up to date.

Additional benefit?

You mean they are going to do a little fine tuning to the face on the Old Woman so the visage bears a resemblance to Clarks? (bump)
