I could have put off digging sprinkler ditches another day, I should have gone climbing. Looks like a great time. Next time for sure.

Batrock, I'm working on that too. From an old English meditation......

"The remorse of memory is the pain of having failed to enjoy yourself. Live in present Thanksgiving. Count thy sunbeams now!"

Cheers, lynnie


Edit: But I do realize the sprinklers have to be dealt with eventually....or

I gave the chalk bag to Cosmic because he thought he would see you before me and it had a mini biner on the outside but no ring that I felt.

1st time visit to Big Rock. Cool place for those of us (me) who are overaged and overweight.

It was great to see Lynne, Mr E, Skip and Cos again.

Also great that Cynthia and I got to meet Jon Beck, TGT, Baja Andy, Rudder, Sheri and Dave Kos, Spider S and Jlnclimbs.

Looking forward to doing it again at New Jack, Texas Canyon or some other uber-destination crag.

That video of Bonzo chasing Rusty was hilarious! That's a good still shot of Rusty too.

Bonzo had a great time! I hope Rusty isn't too traumatized! :)

To the whole gang out there yesterday: It was great hanging with each one of you! Good peeps, one and all! Glad my daughter and her dog Bonzo were able to spend time with us!

Looks like a fine time. Lynne's culinary artistry makes for a great party.

Haven't been to that place in a long time. Nice touch that they put picnic tables at the base!

Thanks, E! lol She did good especially considering her last climbing day resulted in a broken foot. :O She's a gamer, though! And, you and the Cosmic Brothers were climbing solid. :) The standouts to me were Skip, who has that exemplary footwork!, and ol' "15" (aka, Tripod, aka, Cosmic), well barely 15... he had 10 working, five bolted together, and five benched. haha

Driving home after such a great day led to much reflection. First climb Dan ever took me on was the Trough so lots of memories to process.

That morning, driving to the Rock with Dan, I was scared sless. I read a book about how to deal with fear the entire way to the Rock. Ok, I'm fortified, I can do this....got @ 20 feet up and freaked but Dan made me finish it, and I was glad. Not glad then, but glad eventually. :D

Haven't climbed in over a year but because of Sunday I hope to make climbing a primary goal along with kayaking. I loved Sunday and discovered I missed the rock.

Thought of so many of you in the community that have helped me on my way....:D

But two Dudes were with me on the rock Sunday. Todd Gordon telling me to "just keep moving" and Locker saying, "if you can do the climb then work it, do laps on it to improve."

Thanks to the Taco Community for helping me create a new life.

Love, lynnie

Well, Dude, at this moment packing up to go to JTree. After a year plus off the rock the Perris get together showed me I really like the rock and need to figure out ways to climb on. So, I'm Leaving at 5:30 am to hook up with the "Woody Memorial". Wish you were here too .

We did have a fine old time at Perris Lake, didn't we? The Taco Express carries with it so many great Dudettes and Dudes. Cheers to yo all.

Edit: Great pic of the maid on egyptian and you the best one armed bandit ever seen....Peace
