my last post got lost - mousie - are you not telling us something?

the bad news is, I cannot remember exactly what I said, so rather than distort history - I'm just gonna let it slide

Becky is the owner of Pacifica. She's a busy lady. Runs the show here in Merced for all these out-of-towners. There's a shot of her and her grandson earlier on with some fabric I bought there.

Generally, the approved protocol when posting photos of trees, unless of course it's just one tree as in Gypsy's post, is to post a count of the number of trees and and identification of the species being documented.

Unless of course they are undocumented and appear in the photo illegally.

Photos of apes are exempt from the protocol, since most do not have a camera and therefore only a passing knowledge of the rules.

Tree huggers!

Thanks, Ron.

Ron Kauk, ladies and gentlemen.

I was lamely wondering and wandering on Main ST. in search of whatever came and I got shots of the moon.

Credit: mouse from merced
They weren't great, but I didn't know my best shots were waiting just in the same block. While I was wandering, ROK was in the MCAC discussing the sacred.


Just what I was saying, right, neebee?


In nature's way
everything is
talking, and
we just need to
remember how
to listen and
respect.


This is going to take some time to digest, settle, and be absorbed as spirit food. It was a fact I missed the presentation, the slides, the lecture. Spare me o christ. I made it to the after-party and started asking questions, dumber than snot, but found Ron and put it to him, WTH, Bro? We'd never met. We seemed to be in agreement. Kids need mountains and hills and seashores and trees and rocks and sand to expand and grow grand. That's basically it.

I've done my part by giving. I suggest you find the opportunity to help ROK the planet, the moon, and the stars.

You can't afford to ignore opportunity.

In mysterious ways, he muses, the universe expands to incorporate. Why souldn't you?

It's all over now, BABY BLUE.

Here. Have a think about how you got where you were ready.

I have many fond memories of my all day excursions, which involved leaving my tent well before sunrise and sitting out in front of the old gas station next to C4, and hitching a ride to Merced with the high hopes of making it there before my 8:00 AM appointment. They always scheduled me for one of the earliest slots, on purpose, I am certain of that.

My address was general delivery Merced, but I was living in C4. I traveled there every two weeks for the $32.00 check, which was my sole form of support. That was the Spring of '74, and I, like Royal Robbins before me, had determined to totally commit my life to climbing (lol).

It was an all day trip, and I would generally arrive back to the Valley just as the sun was nearing the western horizon. But it would usually include a dip in the Merced, which one time included a VW bus full of hippie chicks (4-5) from somewhere, who were on their way to some preset destination / campground partway up to TM (forget the name of it). They all shed their cloths without the slightest discussion nor hesitation and I followed suit...or, I should say, I followed suitless. ;)

That is one of my fonder memories, although I was a little disapointed when they didn't respond in the slightest to my hints about how I wouldn't mind joining them.

Another time, I recall this one dude followed me in his car for a block or two as I walked along the sidewalk early on morning. All the while trying to convince me that the gold watch he was wearing was just that, solid gold, and how I could be the proud owner of it for X amount of dollars, which I didn't have and had absolutely no in interest in anyway. But, I must admit, he was pretty damn convincing of how he really didn't want to part with it, but was in dire need of money. I think he was asking something like $30 bucks, and always wondered if I had passed up the deal of a lifetime.

Then there was this one guy, around my age (24) whom linked up with me while I was hitching back to Yose at the edge of town that talked nonstop about Jefferson Airplanes new lineup and band Jefferson Starship. Which, he was convinced, was here from outer space and was going to take all the fans (& hip peeps in general i think) back to some planet and it would be an extended Woodstock type celebration. About all I contributed to the conversation was an occasional "Cool" or a "Far out, man".

I put up with a lot of crap from those peeps at the Employment Office. They would spring all kinds of trick questions, etc! One lady simply asked, "Have your ears popped yet." with a smug look on her face, and she didn't even bother to wait for an answer.

She was saying, in other words, "We know you are coming down here from Yosemite, you damn bum. And have made an absolutely zilch effort to find a job."

But it was always a fun journey, with interesting people and beautiful country which followed along the same path that Muir once took (i believe) when he herded the sheep that he was tending to higher and higher ground.

Perhaps we crossed paths, Mouse.

edit: I believe $32 would probably buy about the same amount of goods that $150 would today (if you take into account inflation). But, that is only generally speaking. Because I recall that the Mountain Shop in Yose, where I eventually went to work (once my unemployment ran out) was selling Edelrid ropes for $100. That would have been equivalent to around $500 today! Yikes!
