Who remembers when Pete got stuffed in a snowbank on the way back from dinner (at Snowbird) and left there?

Also, (another gud one)who had a discount there who was not an athlete or employee, and what was the reason given by Gary?

Yeppers, that was the night of the Tarzan yell if I remember correctly.
On the way to the Lodge, John Hannon, responding to everyone else's irritation, stuffed Pete headfirst into a snowbank outside the restaurant. As I recall Pete was a pretty dang good sport about it- even despite the scrapes on his face.

Great memories!

Cheers!

Soooo great to see those pictures!!! :-) Hossjulia, I think the reason was, "she fit well into my lap." But maybe that was someone else. :-)
Locker, glad to hear you are softening a bit....warms my heart. Or perhaps it's the wine? Whatever...........works for me!

This is sad news. We have been going every year to Boulder or Estes to climb (from WI). We often stop at Neptune's for this or that piece of forgotten gear or for beta on local climbs. We've always found the staff to be very patient and helpful, on more than one trip enduring someone from our party trying multiple pairs of rock shoes. I too have placed special orders with them and had them offer to ship them to my house.

I've never had a bad experience with Neptune's and always looked forward to my next visit. I find their merchandise to be fairly priced for the most part. I also appreciated that the people who were selling me climbing gear were expedienced climbers.

Lastly, I've been a big fan of both the consignment gear they sold and the climbing museum. They will be missed by me and my family and partners. In my opinion, one of the best climbing shops around.

If you never been to Neptune's you missed something great...end of an era. Gone!

I think some well-meaning people may be unintentionally making some misleading statements . . . as I understand it, the store's going to stay open, with museum in place. I'm sure the new owners (and Gary who will now work there as an employee) will appreciate everyone's continued patronage.

Locker you really should take Bent Gate up on their 25% offer.
They have the best selection of cod pieces on the Front Range.

I had them set aside a pink polka dotted Mini-Cod Dandy for you Doug...and your doubly-blackened dorkness!

Walk on in and say firmly "Yes, I am THE GUY. So fetch my Dandy, Cod Caddy."

Soon you too will breeze up Eldorado Canyon feeling the swell of Pioneer's Pride...in a new and novel sort of way.

The PrancerWear section has several fantasy enhancement mirrors so that you can be as BIG...or small as you like while you pose and work that Cod Caddy until the LOOK and FEEL is JUST RIGHT!

Pretty sure that some time around the early 90. Christian/ Verve was making a "Cod piece" type support called the "CG Sling" The idea was to be able to wear the Ghoast Pants without a panty line.

Hank got a confirmation on that?
