Gawd, I feel like I entered an alternate Universe in these long "Mussy Nebula" threads - wow! Weird stuff man. What the hell are you guys smoking, drinking, or dropping?

Here is someone I got to meet through rather unusual circumstances at the Mountain Room bar in YV -- Earl Redfern. I met him through a mutual friend Joe Yaggi.

Joe, a friend, climbing partner and fellow "SDSU Leisure Connection" outdoor leader and I, lead a trip to Yosemite with a van full of European and Asian foreign exchange students who were learning English at the American Language Institute at SDSU in the Fall of 1988(?) It was bitter cold on that trip and snowing in the Valley, so we inevitably did short day hikes all over the place, visitng the museum, van tours etc. and spent the evenings in the Mountain Room Bar dancing late into the night before crashing in large group tents in the reserved campground each night.

Joe knew Earl, and one evening we all met-up at the MRB and Earl immediately hit it off with some of the girls on the trip (and definately ending up sleeping with one of them later that night). On the same trip, I met a very pretty (and rich) participant, a Chinese woman named Theresa. We ended up dating for awhile afterwards back in SD (all I can say is wow!)

Anyway, after a nice evening of group dancing he invited a van full of us to his place in El Portal, and we witnessed a private slide showing of some of his latest Baffin Island multi-element big-wall ascents. We all ended up crashing at his place afterwards and drove back to the valley in the morning.

Earl's team intented to Skydive into basecamp, do a 1st Ascent route on Thor(?), and paraglide off the summit. The static line jump ended up getting cancelled at the very last minute, the climb was successful, and they didn't end up paragliding off the summit due to inclement weather but rapped instead. Still an amazing adventure. Earl was way out-there combining incredible sports together into one amazing multi-element adventure. He left a very big impression on me. He was a visionary.

He was also really into designing great outdoor adventure clothing, with the trade name "Thor" and everyone on the team wore his climbing garments. I hear they were and are pretty coveted garments. He even designed a multi-level "condo like" bigwall bivy-ledge the team slept in together. He was into everything, even BASE jumping, and had one of the coveted BASE patches for jumping off The Captain. He was also a private pilot. He did so many things and very well. Very inspirational individual and very cutting edge.

Saw Earl again in San Diego, and we talked for awhile when he came down to give a slideshow at the Sports Chalet. We shared good memories of that night in Yosemite and El Portal. Like I said, he was way ahead of his time in my opinion. I still feel that is the future -- doing all these activities in one grand multi-element adventure and pushing the envelope in many different directions all at the same time. You have to be good at many different things not just one. A Will Gadd kinda climber. What an absolute grand adventure.

I miss him.

Wow, those are some good guesses!

Werner you are correct but not specific enough.

Tardy - tape is aid and you know that he won't run it unless he's got a goby (I mean "humidity-slide") the size of a silver dollar.

Offwhite - true we need a new guidebook but what will we ever do with the 4 copies of the '92 guide we run now?

Steelmonkey - is correct but should be disqualified as he was there that day.

Scuffy B- took it a bit further for the correct answer.

On this particular day, Russ was all jazzed to get up in some off-width. At which time he started to prep by taping his right hand and cutting off the sleeve to his Megalith shirt to make a knee guard. It was at least another 2 weeks before he cut off the other sleeve to match.
