I dig Ron. He freely shares stories that illuminate a fellow human's travels on the rock 'round these parts, nothing to be scoffed at. Always gives me a sense of the soul of Nevada too, something I'll probably dance around my whole life and never have.

Cheers, Ron!

I appreciate the fact that Ron is really quite good at stuffing animals.

From the pictures he posted, he appears very talented at his line of work.

Ron's one of the coolest people on ST I think. The climbing history content he contributes is entertaining and I admire his conviction, it cracks me up how he hangs in there on those politard threads.

Ronís from the heart:

My "side effects of Christmas include:

Being loving thoughtful and kind. Learning the excitement that giving is just as good as getting, being mesmerized by colorful lights, learning crafts by making decorations, learning to appreciate, singing songs of folks mythical or real but always with a warmth to fellow man.

i just want world peas..

Ron as an expert:

I do know the EXACT best angle for bullet penetration into the critical parts of the brain and spine though...

Ron fighting for our environment:

I know the district is hurting like all others,, HOWEVER,,ripping out granite from THE most pristine canyon around is fuggn ridiculous.

Ron philosopher:

Walk a mile in the other moccasins

one mans cam is another mans colt.

Ron IS sane:

Wilbeer, i pass with flying colors and BKGRND checks. My Finger prints on file were for LEO status in the USFS via the USDA. 100% squeaky clean record. My Civil defense status used to show up as well. My Civil defense card, technically has NO expiration. In times of " strife" i could more than likely be accepted at the local Natl Guard facility. Thats they way it once was anyhow. I used to use the radio systems underground there during practice missions for the NV CD group. St/Fed, just like the Natl guards are.

Because i own guns and stand firm on that right means im a "nut" by your standards, but according to the state of NV and the FEDS im fine and dandy..A federal fire arms cert isnt given out randomly. I had them in both BLM and USFS.

Ron the Entertainer:

UPDATE from SOE Base camp 2:

Several injuries have happened to some of the porters and sherpas. They seem to be getting to much air in the hoover-round chairs, and several have had bad wrecks. We have ordered governors for the motors and pray they arrive before all our sherpas are out of commission! F8ckin Krakauer finally got released from the commie jail- and hes back tending the YAKS and llamas - and NO one had shoveled the pens since he was arrested. You can imagine the mt everest of poop awaiting him!

We will be issuing summit bid tickets anytime now- as the ropes are strung to camp 24 in da dead zone. We have only to stock the upper camps with lobster, corn and tequilla..

Weve been examining the possibility of getting a bigfoot or two from Canada, as the sled pulling potential seems out of this world.. Un- fortunately NONE have answered flyers dropped by planes in the woods. We made very generous offers and double rations of lobster and corn and such.

If any one has contact info for any bigfeets, please respond here at the official SOE- the OFFICIAL conquest continues thread. This is time critical as the summit must be gained before the regular route zoos show up for the season..We need our own summit for all the FIRSTS to be properly photographed. ( we will have the first ever bikini summit shots - you wont wanna miss !)

And perhaps a yeti will volunteer as an exchange program to expand bigfeets cultures - a noble effort NO DOUBT! The Yetis could go to Canada while the Canadain bigfeets were pulling sleds on Everest. This could go a long ways in improving the relationship between them and us.

We ARE accepting donations for the exchange to transpire- air fares and motels etc etc will be needed while they are in transit. ;-)

Ronís from some other part of his body:

Every Military Oath i know of includes "enemies both foreign AND domestic"..

Why do you think that is?

Many of you wish for guns to go away completely, and so does just about ANY govt, like in N Korea, for instance. And how did that work out for them?

Why did Obama continue the decimation of the Constitution like he did- worse then even GWB.

ANY of you not shocked and dismayed by that new law should really think on 20 years down the road, and what we let loose.

Very pleasing echoes on this thread...

Feeling a little glum about the recent carping at Ron, I'm inspired by the good-humored regard toward him, here. Forum life can be sweet!

You have to have some admiration for someone who obviously has passion in his beliefs, will stand up and argue for them, and put his name to his statements.

Whenever anybody tells me to get stuffed I give them Ron's contact info.
They don't seem to know what to make of it.

Why come I didn't see this?

Here's Chocolate-Covered Katie, Ron. Enjoy her Mounds.

Or you might prefer Lynne's cooking.

It's like choosing Peter or Paul.

Yes Ron cheers to you. Now lets sharpen the runners, load the sled with crates of lobster and cognac (a few non alchohol bottles for me) and set out for the desert and mini-Everest sized adventure.

The dude is committed... even when he is dead wrong, he's all in. I suppose that's an admirable trait. And I like looking at his old pictures.
