I wish more pics...no one could afford photography back then. The few photos I have probably cost a buck each in those days. Beer and dope was WAY more important.

Mouse, those early skateboard pics and the whole cruising thing brought back a lot of memories for me. I made my first skateboard in '59 that way. I jacked one of my sister's roller skate and nailed it onto a 2X4. I lost a lot of skin in the next bunch of years when those steel wheels and later, the clay composite ones, would instantly stop when they hit the smallest pebble or what have you.

I spent most of my high school years hanging out here

Were Randy and I ever at the Pinnacles that you remember, Gypsy? This thing with Clint bothers me, still. I can't sleep at night. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghFBvBmXv4E

Some boss shorts in that video, amigos. Where were you in '72?

Mouse and Millis ran up this face with one bivvy and ran down the Cathedral Gully in the dark so I could get to work next morning.

The most obvious, to me, line is the right-facing corner, which is why it is called the Chouindard?/Pratt Route, V, whatever.

MFM and the Rev (before he was the Rev but after he was "ordained") had been on the C/R with Jerry Anderson. we bailed.

This old derelict in Camp 4 said we should go do it again, and we never did, but Millis and I did.

I love this old derelict. Here he is at play. His idea for the Pet roach failed. Unmarketable. So like him.

The derelict in better times.

Thanks for the advice, man.

Anyone recognize the truck in back of the Bird?

Is it a bread truck?

By the way Throwpie, Dick didn't think that the photos of people having sex were pornographic; he thought the ones of war and people killing each other were the pornographic images.

After receiving his PHD, Mark McPherran lived in this cabin in the Santa Cruz mountains. He called it his Cold Mountain cabin. I believe it didn't have heat or electricity. He was working as a dishwasher, such are the benefits of a college education.
