I am going to contribute a signed Half Dome 50th anniversary piton to the fund raising effort for Clark. Royal Robbins, Jerry Gallwas and Mike Sherrick graciously signed 23 of these for me back in 2008 and about half of them are still left to help folks in need.





Buy one for $250 and the proceeds will go directly to Clark. I will cover the shipping costs in North America. Your choice of the remaining numbers available.

Send me an email if you would like to buy one. The first email gets the piton. I will announce the sale once it happens.

You guys are awesome! Thank you! I'm not sure how to go about selling this stuff. Maybe just do it here and work off the honor system and have the money sent through the Friends Of Josh.

Thoughts?

"It seems those chemo sessions kick the hell out of his blood cells. This is the second transfusion since he started this round of chemo.

Nonetheless, he was spry and upbeat, talking with enthusiasm as usual. It is amazing how that cancer can jabbing at him and he just scoffs in the face of it and keeps going."

The chemo is horrible. I've been through this with my wife. First the white cells drop, then the red. I had oh so much fun giving her daily injections of Nupegen to boost the white blood cells. Since they stimulate the bone marrow, it causes very deep bone pain in the hips, legs, and shoulders.

A positive attitude is what get's people through this battle. Clark has what it takes!

Thank you all again.

We can still host in Idyllwild if that works, I can arrange a group camping site at the County Park, Let me know if this option is viable. Clark has two Chemo sessions this week, I will be hanging out with him for one on wednesday.. I will pass along all the kind words

Hung out with Clark at the Chemo Lounge today.. he was a little tired as some of the drugs make him a little groggy, other then that he is in high spirits. He lead Double Cross over the weekend and said it felt good to be on the rock! He has another round of Chemo tomorrow and a injection of some sort on Friday, then he has a month off from Chemo before the next cycle starts!
I hope we can pull this get together off, it would be nice to meet all of Clarks other friends that I only hear about!

hey there say, all...

not sure who would be the one to USE this?
or HOW you could use it?

raffle at a get-together if you have one, auction it here etc, or what???
OR--some one can send the money, whatever we set as best-price, to
clark, and then i can just mail this to the one that wants it,
after we know he has the money... :)

*i can not mail it 'til may, though, when i get my funds for the month...

AND IT IS ALMOST DONE:
yep, just touch-ups, 'til done...
it is oil, canvas, 16 by 20
AND AM JUST 'feeling this out' if this will do any good for clark...


however, :(

sadly, it IS flawed--i had bad brushes (usual for me, sorry):
and on one of the coatings, one eve, the brush left many hairs
on parts of it, mainly in side-areas, and, i saw them too
late to fix and get them off.. :(

not many are on the face, you will have to go by our gut-feelings,
if you like it, etc...

We should put together a HUGE gig and call it "the Cancer Fest", staring Clark and Blitzo...

This is "chemo week" for Clark - Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Spoke with him by phone a few days ago. He had to go in for some session on Tuesday as well, but I cannot recall what that was for.

This is round 4 for him, and if the previous rounds are any indication, he will probably be pretty wiped out by it.

Edit: I figured I may as well give him a call, so just did that. As usual, the guy is positive and minimized the impact. He said "Yeah, I'll probably be really tired for about a week." Still he did say that at times there are dark moments, but he just tries to keep his chin up. An impressive attitude and resolve, he has.

hey there say, all...


well, here this is, and not sure how to go about getting this painting to
raise money...

but--i have it... i may post a new thread just so others can see it for
separate auctions or something??? not sure yet...

trouble is... the brushes were bad, i only have a few good ones, and those are large, and i used a smaller new brush on this, and it is now
a 'not perfect quality painting' :(

(just pretend, if you are UP really close, that clark was holding a cat, or something) ;))

but--if you really enjoy helping clark, by art work, and would love
the painting--from about a foot away--it CAN be yours...




let's see if it can bring him something nice... to highest
bidder, etc...

I am looking of a Travel Trailer to buy or barrow this summer for Clark to live in Idyllwild.
We have a place to put it.
Anybody know of anything?
Thanks Karen

What's going on with Clark right now? I heard he's in Colorado, and has taken a bad turn recently, compounded by Lucas's death. Anybody been in touch with him in the last few days?

Clark is recuperating in Joshua Tree after a trip to Teluride with his friend Kojack to visit Steve Sutton got cut short because he came down with pneumonia and had to be hospitalized.

He will resume chemo as soon as he is well enough to do so.
He is also very upset about Lucas.
He is currently staying in a trailer Wally Barker is letting him use in Josh.
Very shortly it will be too hot to stay in a trailer in Josh.
He really needs a place to stay where he does not have to break down camp every day.
He has a place he can keep the trailer parked in Idyllwild.

It would be great if someone that has a trailer they are not using for a few months would let him use it.
If not I will buy one but I would love to have some help with that if people are willing to.
Thanks Karen
