John,
It was great to meet you. Thanks for coming all the way out there to visit.

Thanks for the kind words too. It was a blast being out there. The stories around the fire were fantastic. Excellent camaraderie. Steck told a story about that hat. It was left behind at a lodge in the alps and given to him by a friend. It was of excellent quality. While they were all sleeping, a dog got a hold of it and chewed on all night. That was like 40 years ago and its still intact. It had to have been well made.

It was a blast watching Dick, Eric, Allen and Ken Boche climbing at the the Hall of Horrors and elsewhere. They still have it. I hope I can still climb like Allen when I am 87!

Roger sprained his ankle and was hoping someone could drive his truck home. Seeings how the kids were leaving (Mo's son, girlfriend, and friend) and it was getting windier, we all convoyed back to Petaluma, the 6 of us in 4 cars. Chris Jones, Tom Kimbrough, and Beverly Boynton had just arrived so we did not get a chance to hang out on the rocks with them.

John there aren't any stories about me. I have not done enough to tell stories about. I was just lucky enough to be invited to this thing. I think they needed someone younger to pick on, thats all.

I'll bet they just wanted a ride that had good eyes. That and to mess with you. Those buzzards were still bright as a full moon.

Thanks to Harrison, I got an invitation to the annual "Golden Gathering," the first one I've been able to attend. Here are a few pix of some of the participants tho I've got more that I intend to put in an upcoming thread...

The setting:



The sitting:




Harrison told snippets of, and alluded to, escapades on mountains from Alaska to Mexico and beyond, but I cannot do them justice..






As you can see from their clothes, the weather was a bit chilly!


There is more to show and tell about the time there, but it'll have to wait till a bit later...
