Tad, how is it going? He's not here, he's there.

We'll be there soon enough. They'll be waiting.

Look ahead, not too much, just enough.

Take your mind and shove it.

I would say, having seen to Boomer, we have some things to share, but it's up to you. I'm in the directory. BJBerningham.

Sorry to hear Tad's sad news, and thinking of both you and Brian. You both had outstanding fathers, so cherish the memories!

Brian's dad was born on the Norwegian national day, too. Syttende mai. Although darned if I know what a concrete vibrator is/does.

The Moonlight Vibrator:

It only brings you back to normal.

It makes you cry for those who miss it.

PPlease pay attention, Taco, I love you...

I want to immerse myself in music,

To know it made you feel like I did.

I want to climb some choss pile

To make you feel like I did.

I'd rather I'd climbed a clean route,

No iron to be found there,

Than to know I'd left you hanging

In a dark and dank-ass chimney.

Brrr...

Gee, I liked your rhyming.

Well, I liked your timing, big boy.

Mouse and Nature, together.

Daddies Make You Cry.
WTF.

Hi all,
I got some much needed sleep the past 2 nights so I'm feeling better
physically, emotionally is another story but will come around with time.

Thanks all for the kind sympathetic condolences.

Bump for recently departed Fathers.

Mouse,
How ya doin my new friend?

Hope Boomer and Rog play a round of golf up there, Dad played a little
BITD and pretty much stopped after he scored a hole in one. I played golf for 30 years and never had an ace.

Look forward to climbing with you this spring, I'd like to take you to Toms Thumb and do a few climbs. That place holds special memories for me
as do the memories of our Fathers. Before Dad passed and while he was still lucid I e-mailed him photos of my return to the place and climbing.
As soon as he saw them he phoned me to tell me how excited and proud he was that I was climbing again. I told him how proud I was of him and thanked him for amoung other things, taking me and climbing partner Jim Wilson to J-Tree, Tahquitz/Suicide and Yosemite Valley before we could drive ourselves.

Back home in Redding now, life goes on.

Three blind mice, see how they climb.

They all chased after the ranger's wife,

She cut their rope with a belaying knife.

So never chase after a ranger's wife.

It could have gone far worse.


Ho for Shasta County!

Late, but better than knott, to the party I would add that Moon Unit is a
really nice lady. If you met her at a party these days you'd think her just
another charming and well-grounded soccer mom, with a gud sense of humor. ;-)

Ron, Mouse,
3 blind mice/march of dimes climbing team. LOL

I can hardly wait, this will be great!

I envision a new route,
possible names include:
Sons of Fathers 5.?
Dads Delight 5.?

Add your route name ideas to the list.

Is it spring yet?

Good ones Ron.

If we get it done before Paul Bernard publishes his upcoming guidebook, I'll
e-mail him the beta for inclusion in the N.E. California climbing guidebook.

He had given me a proof print of the cover of one of the Masters of Stone series- and i looked at it and said,, ya know,, Eric should really name these "masters of STONED" - thought Dano was gonna fall he was laughing so hard..

Forefathers, three sons.

Dads' Jam.

Family Tree Climb.

I'm schediuled to meet with Ron Golcman in January for Royal Arches.

"Royal Arches in January." Last words we said to one another at Facelift. This is gonna be an interesting winter-spring. Nice.

You two buffoons think we got enough skill? I only have a couple of hundreds of climbs and repeats I can claim. I want a complete dossier of each climb you've ever done, a recent doctor's report on your physical state, and financial statement. Or is that a deal-breaker?

I mean, I always say you climb better when you trust the ones on the other end. You need to vett your new climbing buds or you could be hurtin', so you'd best be certain.

I get up from my nap and find the expedition's already left!
