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....

Uh oh gnome,
You just clued me in to the idea that you are hiding your identity? Is that what's going on here? By commenting here you also reconnected me with my old buddy Gill(if he checks his mail.). Do I win a pot of gold if I guess your name you little leprechaun? Because I really need a pot of gold. Thanks for flushing gilly.
The ski er Man in the red pajamas, mentor of Hula girl to knowS Gill James? Wow! That is a trip! Now here a sad fact thirty five years!?? So say hey I'm sure you know Gilly way better than I.
Your name? of one or two possibilities ? D. G.? If you were in Mo-Beard? You gnome Too.
Your reading comprehension is perfect and as I say every other month or so, please keep calling me Gnome or some variation of the name, I am well known to many and have had a checkerd past.
No great crimes or babies abandoned,my hart was broken more than harts I broke but still,
Something's that are dead should stay that way, the old me is the gnome, fun and free,
As the Daddy-O, I want to keep the old me from messing up my kids school daze,
But say high to Gill he will know my name I think ?
Now I am a father of two and conservative in my presentation. The family, the white picket fence the whole picture. My fear is that we're, the gnome and I, not well received or much liked by the who's who of climbers. Why this is I don't care I was climbing in the gunks,and else where before many and lasted until the bolts wrecked the place . . .ho comments like that, might be a reason. I am an opinionated SOB, often angry at the world, if only I would not
