People still want you and need you around. I, for one, would like to see some new photos.

Keep the fight going

Donation info:

To send a card, check, or something else:

Blitzo
c/o Russ Walling
HC1 Box 696
Joshua Tree, Ca. 92252

To send a check, make it out to Russ Walling as his bank account is still not quite set up, send it to the address above, and I'll cash it and hand him the money since he lives here at our house.

PayPal is still probably best:
RevBlitzo@hotmail.com is his personal address to send it to. Or, if that one makes you nervous, you can send it to me at "paypal@FishProducts.com" and I'll transfer it to Blitzo.

Thanks!

Dudes the Mack!

Saw Blitzo on Friday with Paul. He was pretty out of it due to the calcium business. I've been out of state for almost a month and it was hard seeing the changes that have taken place. I spoke with Susan about it, how shocking it is to see him so thin and weak. The erratic conversation was particularly hard, as he didn't really even seem to know we were there until just before we left.

I had a nice little meeting with the nurses after I found milk and ensure on his lunch tray. Susan has been in touch with them daily and reinforced this concern.

I will be heading back to see him on Friday and I will take any postcards and well wishes sent to Susan and Russ.

He loved the postcard Chelsea!

Site is coming along. The flower portfolio is up and Amanda and I will be loading more portfolios this weekend as well as a special member section so that those of you who donated can pick out your print.

We love you Blitzo. Wish you were home more than ever!

Thought of the Bloot most of last night. You can hardly find an article, guide, or site that doesnt have the BLOOTS stellar photography in it. Iconic shots that when seen are instantly recognized. Much of the Tahoe area was documented by the BLOOT and ALL those that were an influence in the area. This is a MARVELOUS Legacy of the BLOOT. Hes cut himself out a LARGE place in climbing history and THAT is going to LAST FOREVER. His works, his dedication and ARTISTRY - imprinted in us one and all..

THANKS MR BILL SERNIUK!!!!!!

Ron,

I loved reading your post and it made me think of something. If anyone has any copies at all of Blitzo's photos being featured in print, i.e magazines and newspapers...PLEASE PLEASE scan them for me and send them to my email at leighann.sulli@gmail.com

I can't get a word out of him right now on where he was published. What magazines...nothing. I would love to have it documented and featured on the website.

It will also help me preserve his collection so much better and get the right images out there. The climbing portfolio alone is a huge beast of images and I'm only tackling the film stuff right now. I haven't even begun to deal with the digital work.

Couple of things off the top of my head where his work is in print:

Southern Nevada bouldering guide.
The newer Joshua Tree guide (the wolverine press one, by Robert Miramontes)
California Climber magazine.
California Road Trip (by Slater, climbing guide to Norcal areas)

Not positive but I think Alpinist magazine has printed some too. Almost certainly Climbing mag and Rock and Ice mag at some point. We have copies of most of these that have his work in them at Blitzo's "house".

Pretty sure Susan has a giant collection of Climbing and R&I that would cover any work he'd had printed there (finding out where/which issues will be a different challenge, the old stuff isn't very search friendly).
