SteveW - Just a reminder that on this thread, it's my husband Phil posting the pix. He worked for Gary from '91 to '00. He'll be back posting more and will answer your question then.

Hank got a confirmation on that?

He gave me 2 of those, cool idea and I fully rocked them, but the 88/12 cotton/lycra blend was to much fabric on the part that goes up your a*#crack to be actually wearable. Straight back to commando.

Hi Steve. I knew more folks by face than name, so it's possible I've met him,
but I don't remember the name.

I don't think Steve was there then. He'd been working there
1976-78 or so time period.
But thanks--sheesh, I wish I'd been checkin' in there
back then--I wuz shoppin' closer to Denver.

Steve,
I didn't move to Colorado until 1988. Was Steve Glenn a Neptune staffer?

Many old-timers will likely remember Stevie's Winter and Summer VW buses.
The Winter bus had propane heat, which ran out on our return trip from Snowbird this year. We nearly froze our testes off on I-90 coming back through Wyoming. I had never driven a vehicle while wearing a sleeping bag before that trip.

Steve was, back in 1976 to maybe 1978. I went to visit him
one day (this was when the store was on 28th st), leaned on
the counter and started chatting, looked down, and I was on
the cover of On Belay!
Now that was a surprise!

Phil. Thanks for the memories! You're gonna have to get your own account here sir ;)

That troll was masterful indeed. I recognized it right away but only becuase I had seen the letter posted before. (Greg@mountainproject, greg@widefetish) The way he re-worded it was hilarious!
