Hey all!

Christina and I just got back to the home place, after some great climbing in the Alabama Hills today. I wanted to jot down a couple lines here real quick, before I go back to cleaning up the junk show that is our Jeep at the moment.

First off, thank you SO much for putting on a stellar event. Shawn and Dan, thanks for the time you spent cooking and the time you have spent developing a wonderful area. Kenny T, this area is magical - keep up the great work.

It was so awesome to finally meet Ron in person, and was a huge surprise to see Mouse make an appearance - happy bday Mouse, sorry we didn't have time to talk more.

I'm really glad to hear that Jim is going to be OK - please pass on my best wishes. Jim took a huge hit, and as he was dropping, he gripped that rope as hard as he could and fell onto it. That man can belay for me anytime - he is the definition of a world class belayer.
Tyler, thanks for your assistance. Tyler took over the belay, got Jim's partner lowered, and helped get Jim stabilized. When I asked Tyler to run and get my big med kit, I swear he was back in 5 minutes. Everyone there did an amazing job making sure Jim was well taken care of.

It was a great time, in an amazing area, with great people both on and off the Taco. Can't wait for the guide book, and I really hope we can do this again next year - Christina and I will be there!

Edit to add; I brought a couple special guests with us. I had my "Paul's Ball" with me, and left Paul with an awesome view of the canyon on top of a great new 5.7. On Saturday, I also took along Ian's Sticht plate, and it worked as well as new.

That was fun!!!

So great to meet you all. I wish we raised more money, but I guess people are poor these days ;)

IF YOU FORGOT TO PAY FOR THE FOOD YOU ATE, PLEASE SEND SOME MONEY TO SHAWN. HE PUT A LOT OF EFFORT AND MONEY INTO THE FEST.

Now, the pictures. I have too many to post them all in one post.

Now go back and put a caption on every pic
Thanks

I wish I remembered 30% of the names of the people. If I missed somebody, or misspelled a name people may get offended and ban me from this wonderful site ;-)
