It's pretty apropo really. Backwoods is based in Austin. Austin has long been known as "Baja Boulder."

Austin sucks.

Hey Tami, you've got to stop channeling Phil. It's freakin' me out.

hey phil,
thanks for all the cool memories. Thanks to Pam, CG, as well. It was awesome working with you all- great crew in the late '90s- Clark, Scheibler, Sutton, Luke, Ro, Pierre, TC. Gary's positive influence on the climbing community far outweighs any blog negativity people can drum up. I remember him taking cash out of the register to fill the jar at slideshows that weren't so popular, and awesome christmas parties with the Neptune fam (and many other dinners and parties) for all of us who gave up proximity to our families to climb and ski. Not to mention 4 day work weeks, snowbird, bonuses for climbing (how cool is that?), testing skis, camping, travelling, 14ers... From what I witnessed employees were psyched to work there and generally psyched to help out customers (ie pam's comments earlier) Hope everyone is still psyched- cranking, shredding, and generally getting after it outdoors!

Howdy Cary and Pete!
Thanks for you posts, much appreciated and good to hear from you guys.

I've been digging through boxes I haven't been through in well over ten years and I keep finding more memories.

I'm still looking for my photo with Pam and Jack in their Hawaiian shirts...
