great things are happening here on supertopo.
phylp is proper and spicy ingredients in the stew.

i might even consider abandoning my make believe existence,

for a righteous calling unto hell beckons me.

Hurray for Phyl.
She's always positive and has something to
offer to the taco!

Phyl is one of the first climbers I met in California - buildering at Stanford back in the mid-80s!
We had many a good trip to the Valley, Meadows, Pinnacles, Tahoe, JTree, Red Rocks.
She can climb circles around me on slab and is way solid on cracks, too.
Still here and still crankin' - yay!

What a sweet gift from you all! Murcy, what a nice way to thank me for doing the whole 8 hour drive from SF with the 42 foot cushy bivy!

And the wonderful thing is, ST is such a nice way to keep in touch with old friends like Clint and Wayne, to make such good, new "real life" friends and partners, and to make new friends here around the virtual campfire that I will surely meet up with in the years to come!

Thanks, Phyl

Phlyp's posts grace this forum. Kind, thoughtful and incisive.....she could serve as a template for many here, myself included.

She seems cool and probably doesn't bring a dog to the crag!

Appreciate your positive, honest-to-goodness bearing on ST forum...always constructive and optimistic. You inspire thread posters toward the affirmative and away from the contrary and competitive.

Best wishes!

There's definitely no reason to believe Phyl is anything but a great individual. Come grace the haunts of SoYo sometime!

Phyl and I emailed a few times a while back about mid-week climbing, but never arranged anything.

It never dawned on me (until just now) that Phyl is actually a woman - I assumed I was most likely emailing with the "Phil" that I had climbed with at Planet Granite SF one day last year...LOL!!

Supertopo has always been pretty gender-nuetral to me, but this has me cracking up big-time.

This "appreciation thread" thing is pretty cool - like opening presents Christmas morning!

Hardman! Yes we still should try to get together sometime soon. I broke down and got a PG membership for the next 2 months, so I'm good to go. I have your contact info - will get in touch.

This is who you should look for:

Phyl not only drove all the way down to AH with an RV towing a car, and most of the way back in the car, but also had prepared awesome dinners. Her climbing stoke is off the charts, and she is a terrific partner, and person, in all the big and little ways that add up to YAY. If you think about it, it's a little suspicious. Possible terrorist, here, is what I'm saying.
