I would like to think that there is nobody stupid enough to pay 450 bucks for a site at HVCG, and then be stupid enough to pay the money over in town without a clue as to whether the site even exists.

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.

Just so I'm clear here;
1) HVCG is first come first served.
2) You had a site reserved that you could not used
3) That means you had a buddy SAVE THE SITE for you

If this is all true, then;

THAT IS BULLSH#T AND YOU SIR ARE AN ASSHOLE

It is also illegal.

So, if this is all true, I say we turn the wanker in to the NPS

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.

You're not clear Little Joe. I paid for the site and put my money in the iron ranger, on site, and then had to leave because of flow and brat problems. Go back and read the thread before getting all ignorant and calling names and looking dumb with your Bonanza avatard.

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.

Cosmic, this guy can't possibly be for real.

If by some bizarre circumstance he does exist, he got exactly what he deserves.

And he's a bully to boot. I re-read yer OP, said nothin bout you ponyin up on site. AND you call your kid stupid? Jerk off. Also said your money was in the iron ranger, didn't say YOU put it there. Not my first rodeo with this bs.
What's up with the scalpin anyway? Hope you did get robbed.








































Trust me, I'm laughin my a*# off over this troll, but in case he's serious, so am I.

Do you drink a lot? Who do you think put it in there for the site? The site fairy?

I have another site coming up for Easter break in Sheep Pass group site. The extras will be sold off there too to help cover gas from the OC to Josh. Bet you all cry then too.
