Robs is guy on the left? (or maybe its Tobin -- bowl haircut). The big one on right reminds me of a guy named Doyne Pedorski (sp?).

You're either on the Bus or off the Bus.


Escapin' through the lily fields
I came across an empty space
It trembled and exploded
Left a bus stop in its place
The bus came by and I got on
That's when it all began
There was cowboy Neal
At the wheel
Of a bus to never-ever land
-- "That's It For The Other One", lyrics by Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, and Bill Kreutzmann.

The old guys are too easy, but my guess as to where that shot is taken is along the road near Frustration Creek? Or Tioga Pass Road?

Hey Randy, that might be the road to the Whitney Portal? Too small for the tioga.

There's a 1955 USGS Bench Mark behind those piñon pines in the background. Someone should go check that out. That should settle it...

from right to left....R. Muir, Matt Cox, Sybelle, Phil Gleason. Tobin....Great stuff Rob.

How about this story. Humbler Park. One am while killing time, burning pipeloads, coffie etc.....Bacher gets Bullwinkle to ride on the top of his car, a Corvar, by hanging on to the roof rack. JB starts off sort of slowly but pretty soon he is really getting the car to slide sideways and he is probly getting it up to 50 or 60 on the straightaway....Bull is SCREAMING, PLEADING with JB to stop cause the rack is slowley starting to come unhinged!!!!! John sort of slows down and Bull gives out a great big..."oh thank you.. oh thank you ..thank you"...John almost comes to a stop where we are sitting, eating, smoking etc but before Bullwinkle can dismount...John flashes US that grin of his and floors it.....

Matt never sported a beard, and wasn't tall.

Ummm, let's see, now hold on a minute, geez, I oughta know this... I think I live near it... Maybe it's... Hey wait... Whitney Portal, yeah. Yeah, that's it...

Great grandpa Muir and grandpa Waugh. And I think the bus has already come and gone. Maybe they fell off of it?

Old guys??? What, Bolton, like you're a spring chicken or something? Hey, wait a minute, that's what I am! OK, like you're some kind of babe in the woods or something?

More pictures of old people.
How 'bout some stories about the gentleman pictured below
in a recent beach photo op.




and Henny, do we have the photo of you. Just waiting for the prime
time to spring it. Dude, Lazarus looked better! And...Lazarus
was younger.

Not quite, Henny. The Steers photo is at the true center of the universe, Tenaya beach. The photo of Granpa Robs and Grandma Mike
IS at the Portal. Is your medication adjusted ok? I'm worried.

Damn! I hate it when that happens. Thought it was by the fishing pond. Oh, well.

Don't do it Bolton, I'd be forced to kill ya. And anyway, Vogel is older than me.

No way, chicken. Nobody is older than you. Fred Beckey told me
about how he used to look up to you when he was a kid. I guess his
mom also told him to stay the hell away from you.

"from right to left....R. Muir, Matt Cox, Sybelle, Phil Gleason. Tobin."

So from left to right we have Tobin, Phil, Sibylle, Matt and Rob.

Neither of these is correct.

I think so far it is: (1)Robs, (2) Unknown (certainly not Matt), (3)Sybelle, (4) Gleason? and (5) Bachar or Gramicci
