Would someone please give GU a joint and a hug? He really needs it.

More like psychotherapy.

I'd give Jstan a pat on the back, a beer, a meal or what ever else I could help him out with. Would REALLY like to get out there and help him, Fonda and the rest of the crew trying to help the place out.
Peace


Hey Fonda, the place in any need of LABOR help, the fields are tended to, so I am freed up, so to speak.
Peace

Something about the high- desert air up there. It turns people into crusty, angry curmudgeons holed up in their compounds. If they're not clawing their way up some crumbling, ball-bearing-coated dummy-dome they got nothing else to do but troll on the internet. I doubt there's a qualified therapist within 100 miles. Give em a break. ;)

Picking on on our boy JStan does not earn brownie points though. The man is a living saint and an inspiration IMHO. Wish I didn't have stupid obligations keeping me elsewhere.

Ron:
You gave Robert, Dave, and myself a real hand when we badly needed it. Without your help we were stuck.

Thank you.

I figured out who G-U is before today's posts. Should have known right away. I must be getting slow.

Edit:
JTM:
G-U is not a curmudgeon. He is an original.

Never have I seen a guy who just wanted to clean up some garbage take so much crap from people.

JStan thanks for your efforts.

GU a joint is not what you need. You need a hug the one your mom never gave you.

When some anonymous poster who calls himself "ground up" is lecturing John Stannard, it just doesn't get much funnier than that.

John, give me a call when you guys are gonna be out there, I'll make my best to come out and help get it done. What I did, was nothing, what I can do might amount to something.

Being a curmudgeon and being an original are not mutually exclusive. :)

I'm not picking on any one and I'm not looking for brownie points and CURT IS STILL A DICK!
I also think any one trying to clean up the planet is cool and doing a great thing
Sounds like jstan is trying to do good things and I think that's great
He sounds like a good dude
Just got tired of hearing about Pit
I do believe The Pit is not giving climbers a good name with the people that live in Joshua Tree
TAKE IT or LEAVE IT

O ya LOCKER IS STILL A DICK !

This will be my last post on this subject

Ron:
Right now we are mainly pointing toward the AAC's Spring Clean in the Park. I have been volunteering with George Land's group on the NPS which is now responding, just as did Facelift, to the Cultural Resource Protection Act. With the JT Clean Team/off the Park we run into debris I estimate to be as much as 100 years old. A story I ran into in the Park.

On a walk I saw some interesting stones and picked up a couple as souvenirs. Then PT said, "John! Look!" The stones formed a rectangle 2 1/2 feet wide by 6 feet long. I put them back and when we later showed the site to a knowledgeable friend he knew exactly where in Nevada the stones originated. Stream worn sandstone. Someone's mother is buried there.

Life here can be really raw and I see both old and recent evidence of that. You can be in just a desperate area with broken glass everywhere and come on women's underwear thrown onto the ground. Or find piles of badly rusted cans, with no house anywhere nearby, many of them the old soldered cans used for a baby's milk. A family was living there in a tent taking care of a baby.


You see two lines of stones forming a right angle? Someone was living there in a tent.

The frontier.


There is one thing I am not clear on however. If someone over 50 years old falls off the rocks in the Park. Do we have to leave him where he lies?

I don't know you either LOCKER But you sound like a real dick
Are you asking someone to hurt me ,it sounds like you are
Better watch your step
If you have a problem with me you should deal with it yourself (PUSSY) not ask others to hurt me

Maybe You, Dick ,Tucker and Mayville should all get together and Put up a Poser Rap Route
You could call it ( we wish we were real climbers not posers)
O Well I'm over it
I've wasted enough time on poser climbers
Peace"

^^^

LOL!!!...

What a load of crap...

ALL BIG AND TOUGH here on the site...

Dude, one thing I am NOT!!!...

and that is intimidated by your sorry ass...





One more for the road...

That Mayville line REALLY got to you, didn't it!!!...

ROFL!!!...



And YEAH!!!...

You have in FACT been picking on Jstan...

Someone that has been doing a great job...

So you're pretty FUKED UP dude...



;-)





EDITED:

Point out please where I ASKED anyone to hurt you...

I did however suggest that a "GUD neck sqeezing" might be in order however...

But don't worry!!!...

It's not that bad...

Dave's choked me before too...(Edited: and punched me, sending me FLYING... But that's a different story ;-)

I lived!!!...

This thread proves that one mans chick magnet is another mans garbage dump.

Good people doing good stuff is all it takes to dilute the bad stuff, or even motivate change. School is out for us Thanksgiving week, we are looking for a project, so if the clean team needs help we are on it.

"As to Ground-up???...

Someone like Mayville should find him walking on a dirt road, and give him a GUD neck SQUEEZING...

LOL!!!...


EDITED:

I wonder if Dave really was speeding or if someone in particular was just being a total DICK like he is being here with John???..."
...









So Paul...


was Dave REALLY speeding that day???...

Or were you just being a total dick like you have been here, towards John aka Jstan???...



EDITED:


HOw long before you do what's simply refered to as "the COZ move" and just CLAIM that you've been joking all along???...





I for one think that Jstan is one hell of a GOOD example of CLIMBERS doing the RIGHT thing...

and maybe Coz and Paul B (Ground up) don't consider Jstan a "REAL CLIMBER" (Do they know who he is???), but I do...

Because REAL CLIMBERS are nothing more, than people that LIKE to climb...

Anything beyond that and yer JUST dreaming
...







RON EDIT:

"I'd give Jstan a pat on the back, a beer, a meal or what ever else I could help him out with. Would REALLY like to get out there and help him, Fonda and the rest of the crew trying to help the place out."...

Ron...

just so you KNOW...

IF you do get out there and HELP clean up the mess...

COZ and Ground-up will no longer consider you a "REAL CLIMBER"...

and we all know we DON'T want, THAT...



RIGHT!!!...

Like who gives a fuk what either of them think...

Here it is in a nutshell...

"Never have I seen a guy who just wanted to clean up some garbage take so much crap from people....

Exactly!!!...

Seriously...

What the fuk???...

Someone does a good deed for the community, and two pricks get on this thread and start tearing into him like it's going out of style...

Both have shown SOME backpeddling...

But we ALL know their true feelings...

they're BETTER than the rest of us...

Why???...

Because they're REAL climbers...

and WE are NOT!!!...

Well, I have joined the ranks of the perplexed. G-U is not who I thought he was.

Edit:
You can never tell about chick magnets. A fellow built a house near me with a 50' lap pool and a sauna in hopes of keeping his wife here. She left and he ended up following her. You may be right. But I tend to doubt spreading broken glass around would have done the trick.
