Up front ain't in it, I guess.

For what it's worth, the only sled I have had in my life is one called Citizen Kanebud. Kinda took me into another dimension, know what I mean? And I don't mean Vancouver.

Tad, you have two ancient ropeboys capable of doing 5.6 and She is watching over us. What's to worry about except we forget a few of our scrips or fall asleep at the belay? We can have two of us at the stations, so that shouldn't be a big deal. Or we just do single-pitch routes. NOT!

Ron, I think I can still get some more of that CK bud. It is the ticket to contentment for at least six hours! You will nod off, though. Guaranteed.

i may have to get my other sponsors involved here-- SLEDS OVER EVEREST could be a major boon to the scene.. Fresh steamed lobsters, corn,, and other consumables, not to mention the party girls supplied by Hoff and companies.

But then again,, the remaining BIG GAL would surely want in,, and im skeert to belay her -- Not an ounce of fat, but shes six nine and 300 lbs. We better leave them at base camp 2...

I think I can trust you now.

The sled thing is negotiable, obviously, since approaches suck.

I've not kept up since the mass suicides on EVE-rest, so am interested (sic) in the niceties of powering these sleds. We gotta pull them dudes or can we hire some dirties?

Would you like to try some Castle Craggin'? That and the Thundering Thumb, and Tom's Stone, who came home, to his wife and family...

The Thundering Thumb is just as fickle as any finger, moreso in some cases.

I'm workin' out. Getting the scrips renewed. Vitamins. Walking. No beers.

The Mouse does not reserve any rights to his background and likes to brag, too. So, given my missing thumb, I had ACL surgery on the right leg in 1979, a resounding success. My left knee needs to be braced when strained by such as climbing.

My right lens is now plastic, but I see well at a distance, need reading correction.

I have all of my teeth, Ron.

I'm retired, still smoke, still drink--but not to excess, except for the other night at Boomer's wake, and haven't got a cannabis card.

I climbed in Yosemite starting in Fall of '70, living there full-time till March of 1972. Worked at the Mtn. Shop guarding the rurps from Werner and folding Go Climb A Rock Tshirts. Great skill set developed at getting xc wood skiis prepped, mounted, etc.

Spent lot of time in the weekenders' camp, until the year 1983, when my climbing activity ceased, with the exception of the odd vacations to YV in 1986 and 1988, when I climbed the sh#t out of everything with several different guys from all over, esp. Kelly Laakso, who returned in 1990 to attempt Lurking Fear. Courtwright Reservoir trip in 1995 was my last official roped climb. I have been up Sunnyside Bench Regular halfway with my then 68-year old father-in-law to enjoy that view.

Major climbs: EBMCR, many times; The Flakes, same; HC spire, same; Braille Book & Sequel; Chouinard-Pratt; CPFMCR; Leaning Tower; S & E Faces of Wahington Column; NWF Half Dome, regular route; Salathe Wall; 5.4 plus, JT and many routes there and at Tahquitz & Suicide & Pinnacles; Mt. Shasta; Mt. Lyell; Mt. Winchell; Memorial Stadium, UCB; and Mt. Elizabeth Bermingham. RIP.

Mentors include the Rev, Lloyd Price, Roy Naasz, the Bird, Millis, neebee Gonzales and Steve Grossman not in any particular order

I liked golf, but it's stupidly wasteful.
I liked fishing, but it's not satisfying.
I liked racquetball, but it's way homo.

I just want to write and climb and write about climbing now.

I've found a couple of good men, one of whom happens to be a Flame.

My pleasure to await developments.

We are at war with our ages, gents. Let's kick some butt.

For the Fathers, lads!

Had me fooled there for a few minutes, Ron.

I said to myself, that looks like a SM-62 Snark, the ICBM. But then I clicked to enlarge and it's the Reg II.

Dad liked my array of US rocketry, with all the makes and models in plastic that I had to put together. They weren't to scale with each other, but this wasn't a biggie. I had the hots to go to Vandenburgh and watch the range tests, but never got the chance. The Aerojet-General rocket-testing facility was out east of Sacramento by Mather AFB/RIP.

We got a tour of both places as Cub Scouts. Haven't seen anything like the rocket test we saw ever since, except maybe at the base of Nevada Fall, where it's almost as loud!

The ex is just arriving here with the child, so I'm out of here till tonite.

Yep Mouse,, thats the Reg 11 at Edwards. Dad worked edwards ,Pt Magoo ,, etc.. They tried launching the reg 1 off a sub, and it burned the conning tower off of it lol! Shyt was barnstormin back then! Then he went to Nebraska and worked at the SAC hq for a short time, then back to the apollo series and then to sparks for the LM project. He worked early on for Grumman, Chance-vought, Convair aeronautics- from planes to the bel X-1, x-15 etc..

FTF it is, then, and the oldest belays first.

My hat's off to my ex whom we can now call by her REAL name, Dolores.

I wasn't sure she did it, but I asked her, "Did you ever get your PhD at Mills College?" She told me she did, in 2005. Just what we need. A doctor in the ex-family.

Her hand on my head, well, it did not happen, but Valerie was thrilled. Bevin, too. Kind of how I thought it would go. Val wanted me to tell her future. I told her she's on her fourth or fifth husband. what's to tell? It's probably a given...

It turns out thay made the drive to Merced from Castro Valley and then they're going right back. They mainly came to see Merced, because Val is visiting and hasn't been back to Merced for forty years. She told me she has some Woodstock film footage, too, which she may send to me on CD. I was basically along for the "guide," as I see it, except Bevin would not cop to that. We two had a great time picking "arguments" and she liked my attitude about standing up for my opinions. I told her, "If you have an opinion, give it. No one has to agree, and if they do, they are being foolish." "You're right." [Plus one, Dad.]

The visit included In 'n Out, Mig Bike, and they treated me to a DD and shake. I counted ten taco wagons out on tour. You need to come through Merced, the next trip out west to climb them Yosemite cracks.

When we were at In 'n Out, I had the gall to ask for a photo of myself and Dolores standing by the In 'n Out painting showing the original drive-in so I can have a matched set of me and my wives in front of a fast food joint. Some un-romantic bastards (thank you, Lolli) might never think to do that.
