Need a bunk?
Thanks, but we're okay in that department.

Hey Bruce! I meant to say hi to you in the grocery store last night...

The grocery store is the new meeting place. Always seem to run into someone there. We went shopping when we arrived in town and ran into Kevin McLane. Who said he was working on a new comprehensive guidebook with Andrew Boyd.

Anyway, while I was talking to him, a young guy (young compared to KM and me, anyway) walked up and said "Excuse me, but you're Kevin McLane, aren't you?" Kevin said he was. "I'm Rob Lane, Dave Lane's son..."

Not sure what our plans are for today. I've have to do a couple of hours work, and then I think Mari wants to hit Area 44. That'll probably be around 10:30 or so.

Well have fun up there David, i don't think i'll be able to stop by there. My phone went for a swim yesterday so i'm gonna try & deal with that & some honey-dos then hopefully go climb something in the afternoon.

Where you going Bruce?? How nice & dry was the pet?


edit- lol Dave L should have strapped a grigri to the kids if it was already anchored down!

second edit- I heard a rumour that the OP might be up on wrist twister today so be sure to stop by & cheer him on if you are near the Chief.

Then there's that other story, involving cops, child services and the apron parking lot.

I think that it was a tree in the old backside trail parking lot which is now, of course, near the campsite. IN that case, the child tied to the tree became quite the circus artist....

Wow. Too much good stuff to reply to right now! The monkey's have been sending, but this one's been too tired to post lately. All in good time.

Here's a sneak peak at today's objective.

Tooth, that chopper is a sightseeing chopper out of van who likes to buzz climbers on the chief and sometimes land illegally up there. He buzzed us twice.

Choppers that buzz need to be full mooned. A chopper from Grouse Mtn used to buzz the top of the Lions. Maybe they still do that. Definitely something that needs to be assed :-)

Well they didn't see the moon today. I think that would be very difficult in a body harness at a hanging belay... Lol

I made sure to wave a certain finger at em!!

Two full moons made an appearance on the Camel many years ago that scared the Grouse copter into shutting down completely for four hours.

A brand new bit, three holes, new 10+ route, sunny Fraser Valley granite, what's not to like?

I have a broken rib is what's not to like. So after scrubbing and working the moves on this line pre-break, I ended up handing it over, gift wrapped, yesterday to a good friend of mine for the send. Despite having seven kids and consequently getting to climb about twice per year, he sent. Good times.

Well dude, A lot of us subsidized your education Drew and still toil to make our tax deadlines and dream of a retirement. It regards time passing and the rewards of capitalizing VS, being an employee ...
