John Long wrote an amazing story long time ago about letting go. Maybe he can post it.

Thanks for sharing that story, Dingus. A roller coaster ride I haven't gotten off in a while.

I'm not especially good with words but lately some of the ST postings have been astoundingly moving and I fail in many ways to express how they have touched me. Anyway, they have! This one included. I think as we move into winter, Christmas season, end of year, shorter days, longer nights, whatever, it stirs a type of self reflection...thank you brave folks that can share it....it resonates tremendously with many of us that can't quite figure out the words.

"walking along in the mission in in the rain"
we walk a beautiful life between the mountains and the sea, the highs being so high and the
and the wipe outs so deep. but when you stare out at the ocean and it stares back so mad and
confused, build a fire wait out the storm and watch the ocean turn that chaos into clean
pealing lines, spitting barrels and long glassy walls.

My friend Nick had a monkey... Fred I think... made one of the climbing mags way back... wouldn't recommend it.

Chicks are crazy and next to impossible to deal with on a daily basis. Problem is, they have all the pussy and way better tits than dudes. Stay cool, do what you love, be open, and someone will come along... but just remember, they are ALL crazy... just make sure it is nice crazy, not psycho bitch crazy. Remember, if they climb 5.12, they are most likely psycho bitch bat sh#t crazy... although the standards have changed, so the cut off could be 5.14 these days.

Yeah, my comments ruined this thread. Sorry Greg. I should have stuck with posting photos of used blow up dolls or bitching about being married or posting videos of lame ass love songs.

On that note... best love song ever:

There's a terrible, bullshit song about paving a paradise for a parking lot. You know, you usually hear it in elevators and at Albertsons.

G Davis..... you should really go get that girls first 3 records and listen to what she has to say about life and things. A lot of wisdom in
her songs.

Go climbing.... get over it, it's part of life and one day you might just look back and think: "The best day of my life was the day she split town"

good luck 2 you

Is it just me or are stupid people who cannot use English grammar dominating the web?

This is why I'm largely a hermit. People are stupid!

He might, if he had a laptop. Some caves get WiFi.

Crimpergirl is absolutely correct. The "pet" monkey is a way more serious threat than the night. At least the Night just lays there. Mostly.
