Hey, DMT...

If you go out in the woods that way...

You could be in for a big surprise...

But then, so could she, I suppose.

Why not clothes?

Know one knows.

Only D. Milktoes.

Nice fall,

Color and all.

?!!?!!!

my Goodness...!

Damn, that's a pretty warm day...I didn't know that was possible on T-giving.

Is this like a polar bear swim, but with rock instead of ice?

Crazy climbers!

Looks like a nice day fer sure...

Part 2

Shower, shave and redress complete, Kaity and I hit the road only slightly off schedule.


Kaity looking like a million bucks, someone out of a 50s film :-)


I like this one


Cerviche, and plenty for everyone. OMG it was SO... GOOD!


Fresh tortas, baked ham and stuffing, a clash of cultures!


Tellin ya I hit the Thanksgiving Jackpot


What more could a man ask for?


A kitchen full of women and food, carving up meat!


Sometimes I blurt out ill-advised things and get 'the look' from Joann. When she's holding a meat cutting knife this is not the best course of action, not a recommended best practice.


The turkey got sliced and I didn't have to do it. Score!


Kate steps back in time


Great time had by all. 3, no maybe 4 generations of family.


All my girls were smiling in my direction, all at once. Musta been the kick me sign.


Oh yeah!



THis is my family.


And yes they're as weird as I am. They thought I was a stray cat, not realizing I was a spider.


Good times. Some friends from Mexico hadn't seen them in neigh on ten years. We had to pass the tequila around to celebrate.


A great meal


Cept for Lexi's Condition, but we were all braced for that.


La famalia


Then I noticed Brittney's shoes... ut oh


Mmmmm, mice little piggies there Britt.


Secrets exchanged


And Carlie granted me ONE picture, and only one (Carlie always says what she means, and doesn't tolerate misunderstandings or obtuse uncles)


Turned out to be a pretty danged nice Thanksgiving

Looks like a fun day. Did ya drive through that strange fog belt at the base of the foothills? from just east of 99 to about the Ione level. Then it crept up the hills and then dissipated in the early afternoon. Very warm above the fog.

LS - not polar bear at all, more like Far Side warm :)

leggs - yes, AGAIN, lol. Don't think I got caught this time harhar

Mrtrophy - Yes it had me questioning my choices - I started off toward Vacaville as a result of it, then changed my mind and turned round. Glad I did. The fog lasted only 5 miles around Rancho Marietta then dissipated.

Yep window down, t shirt warm... could feel the inversion effect as I descended.

Headed out again, the Sirens are calling me.

Great family photos, Dingus! Kaity looks dreamy in her vintage inspired wear. ;)

"THIS time". Ha! I look forward to you getting caught again. (har... har)

I will be bouldering today... completely clothed. PERHAPS when I hit 50+ I'll have the confidence to be DMT.

Follow the sirens, Dingus... ~peace

Yes luggi, that orange bag is a TOE for sure. Chalk bag as well, which is the 2nd of 2 'man hand size' bags he made for me some 15 or no more like 20 years ago. Seriously, and still have the first chalk bag too.

Get up there Mrtrophy, I heard it calling your name, wondering where you been.

I had one of those bags. It was stolen.

I drove through that way on Friday. Someone else was at the parking spot.

How much is on that hillside. I've only done the stop and pee walk around. It looked good for a stop and climb. We went to Cooks for a burger instead on this trip.

Found Ourselves Back in the Hood

Official Weird Juju Bouldering Reprise. Almost same time of day too.


I love the way this boulder just grabs your attention


Its not hard but it is a rock climbing and falling would be disasterous


So I guess I better not fall?


It is ways off the deck


My partner didn't need much coaxing


Got into the crux and worked through the thinness.


Flip or fly, do or die


It really got our attention


YOu gotta involke some crankology


Flow like the water


It just keeps coming at you


Attitude is everything!


Partners like this keep me smiling too.


Just another November day in Norcal


Quien sabe, perhaps the last crank of the season.

What a pretty place, and it really is special.

that hi-ball is a classic. and genuinely tall-- at jtree it'd have four bolts.



tall enough that i'd want a tr on that cool looking overhanging side.

It's a very cherry boulder in the last vid. Is it climbable on the sunny side? By you, in full splendor, from the same camera angle, if you dare...
