Yeh, thanks from me too...fun to keep the thread alive.

Here's my guess on the date. John M, aka Deucie, went to TMS twice. I'm guessing this is the second time. He's the the first one, the blonde, standing in the second row down and right from Greg Davis in the beard. When I met John in the fall of '76, he'd been there twice already, in '74 & '76. I went '77 and John and I visited just for climbing school in '78 and worked as guides '79. The '74 pic is above, so I'm guessing this is '76?

Dave Farny, as I recall, was a USAF vet. There were pictures of a B-47 taking off in one of his brochures for TMS, and I think the caption said he was in the depicted plane as the pilot. This SKI Mag profile also notes in service record....

Hi all,

I was 15 when I was there in 1979. It was the last year and the time of Kevin and Dan's accident. I remember all of these names and faces. Thanks for posting. I used to wear a cap with ears on it:)
