I have a site in Hidden Valley for the next 9 days and I cant use it. I was so psyched to get out for the annual Thanksgiving week, but the wife is OTR and my stupid kid has some sort of tooth problem. My loss is your gain. 9 days starting on Tuesday. $450 or best offer. PM me.

I give you an overall C- and a B+ for effort on the Stuportaco Troll Scale. You would have got a higher overall grade if you didn't set the price so high.

But we might get some good entertainment out of this yet.

I would rather take my $450 and tweak out at the pit for a few days. You know, late-night lurking, filling trash-bins, and hauling in random yard-sale furniture for others to deal with later.

Hey guys,

I bought the permit, but it turns out I can't use it either.

But I figure it's appreciated a little since I bought it.

I'll let the first one who offers me $750 have it.

Checking with a reliable source (and using the poster's IP address as a cross-check), I was able to confirm that there is a corresponding reservation over the Thanksgiving week. But, since transferring reservations for profit is violative of the Reservation site's policies, my source cancelled it.

That should serve as a valuable lesson.

first off dude it isn't your site. if you can't be there chalk it up as a donation to the NPS...you get more than you pay out of enjoying the park anyway. what happens when people who know you are going to be leaving come over and take over your site and the poor sap who buys it off of you is left without a site?

It's illegal to oversell the site. It's caused some problems for legit groups in Yosemite as well as in Jtree. Fun read but some of you are members of those groups who've had to deal with this and it's caused grief from the NPS due to scalping of sites. Now we have to deal with more regs because of jerks like this. Even trolling to scalp just exacerbates the problem. This a-hole is causing more problems then Fatty ever did.....

i'll bet ya can't do SB & i can. if so, i get the site for free!

if ya can do SB, and i can't, i pay double fer the site! ($900)

if we both do it, we break even! (and you get away from the wifie & the kids and get to go bouldering for a day)!!

you just said on the 'Woodson 2012' thread that you cud do it off the couch and you rated it "V3+ tops"!!

and you say you know some "trick" .. then go ahead and feel free to use it!!

i will do it as a straight undercling no "tricks" (& no knees)!!

yer just a hop, skip & a jump from mt. woodson!

Methinks Scetchy is co-trolling there since there's no reservation system for HVC.

If this is for real.. Anyone who wants the site can just lurk and take it for regular NPS rates today. If the OP's "stupid kid" really has a tooth-thing to take care of he's hardly going to hang around trying to patrol the perimeter of a camp-sight indefinitely to extort money. The scalp-e would probably have to pony up an extra $90 on top of the scalp-rate to get the paperwork to match BTW.

Yeesh.. for that kinda dough I'd just get a hotel.

A better troll would be someone scalping sites at the Pit.

I have a site at the Climbers Ranch for the next 9 days and I cant use it. I was so psyched to get out for the annual Thanksgiving week, but the dude wants to stay home and watch that stupid football game and my kid has some sort of hormone problem and can't stand to go more than half a day without seeing his girlfriend.

Ammenities include: Spacious, wide open vistas. Close to fine dining, Near the park - but avoid the fighting over sites in Hidden Valley campground and people asking if they can park their car in your site. Exemplary custodial manager on call; just post on this forum and he'll come running with his trash tweetzers!

My loss is your gain. 9 days starting on Tuesday. $4,500 or best offer. PM me.

Jon B,

I haven't been out to Josh in years. I don't recall ever paying anything for a site. i recall paying to get into the park (at times)!! maybe we paid something for a site, it wudda been minimal (like c4 was, bitd) i was shocked to see "$450", but i am pretty clueless as to what's going on out there these days. 9 days at $450 wud be about $45-$50 a day. It does sound absurd. Especially for a single family. But, I thought maybe they are sites for multiple famlies/cars/people or whatever?? Dunno!!

Anyway, I didn't know if it was (or is) a "troll" or a "scalping" or not.

I thought he (PerlonHex) was legit.

I HAD (up until this thread) thought it was still free to camp & climb there. And i have (family has) a Golden Eagle Pass (FWTW). I would like to go out there. But, if I had won the "bet" I would have prollie gone out there for a few, but most lkely simply given it away to someone more worthy of spending a full 9 days at Jtree (most likely what i wudda done)!!

I didn't realize that he (PerlonHex) only has a few posts on ST!!!

SO, WudEvah!!!

edit: i guess i'm purdy lame, eh? one of the LAME, ones! lol

but, i am totally serious about SB, no matter how "lame" it may sound or actually be!!!

EDIT: justthemaid - "I think Randy was pulling our legs." -- Randy Levitt??

He use to (maybe still does) live in San Diego (i think he is a lawyer)! And SB prollie is V3+ for him, eh? And if anyone could do it "off the sofa" it would most assuredly be HIM!!

SO, if I was him, I would take me up on that bet!!!!!!!

Or do you mean Randy Vogel? I suspect you mean him (now that i think about it)!

WELL , the same goes for him (what i said about RL)! He is basically in the same league as RL and also use to live in the vicinity, etc (actually, he was the one who is a lawyer)! I would also recommend that he pony-up if he is interested in making some extra "$$$"!!

I am starting to feel like a dentist (this is getting to feel like pulling f'n teeth)!!!!!!!

I'm not aware of any type of internet confirmation on campsites up there so the business with mentioning the IP track made me think Randy was pulling our legs. He could certainly report the site and the internet post to the NPS and rat them out though. Pretty funny if he actually busted them LOL.

PerlonHex - SB is V3+ tops. MH was my old stomping grounds for 15 years. I can still do it right now, off the sofa, and is a trick.

I have NO idea who you are! And you are welcome to your opinion as to hard it is as far as you are concerned. If you have done it (like you claim) and call it "V3+ tops" kool! BUT, what I have trouble with, what bothers me, is your referring to it as a "trick" (or as Johannsolo called it "a parlor trick"). Are you simply parroting him, or what? He can't even do it (yet)!!

I have no idea what your talking about. I suspect you have watched the vid of the "Pullharder" guys. How can anyone turn that into a trick? It is a pure undercling. Feet on face, under-cling upper flake and grunt!

What bothers me is that it is extremely disrespectful to the FA & SA! (Rick Piggott & John Long)! Rick never said anything about a "trick". I talked to him about it on several occasions, bitd! He thought it was damn hard. Was very proud of getting the FA of it. For you (& Johannsolo) to write it off as some trick or parlor trick (whatever that is) is very insulting to the FA & SA!!!

You can call me a drunk "give up the bottle" or whatever. I could care less what you say, think or consider me (its irrelevant). But to either start, or to continue to perpetuate some asinine rumor, that SB is a simple trick, is bogus! Particularly under the pretense of feeding some preposterous troll!

So, whomever you are (famous or not) that IS lame!!! IMO!!!

Furthermore, I am NOT trolling anyone (fwiw)!

I'll leave it at that!

Did any of you happen to climb with a guy named Brian over the holiday out at Josh? Cool guy, from Santa Cruz or SLC, might have had some dreads and really dirty feet. Well, his check for the campsite I sold him bounced and I'm looking for him. Emails are not being returned. He was driving a Toyota TRD that was dark green with a bad shell and some Evolve stickers on the windows.
I think he was going to Canyonlands after Josh. Thanks for any insight you might have.

I shared a campsite with a guy that matches your description on Thur-Sun. He seemed like cool guy. I offered to pay him for my share of the site but he refused.

He told me he was heading Red Rocks next. He needed a break from camping and was getting a room at the Red Rock Inn Casino. Nice place, and very convenient to climbing. I looked into it once and it was out of my budget, but maybe someday. I usually just find some deal on Priceline when I go to Vegas, but this guy probably has a trust fund.

Isn't camping at HVCG only 10 or 15 dollars a day for camping?

If so, Perlon is making a profit of about 300 dollars for 9 days.

If he paid for a site for 9 days and couldn't use it, I could see him
giving the site to someone, for what he paid for the site.

Trying to make a profit off the camp site is something only an A$$HOLE would do.
