Hey Fish Finder. Thanks for the nice compliment. I like mixing up the jams and like a lot of ham with my cheese. Thanks for providing some delicious candy to stimulate my mental sweet tooth! Your friends from Malibu and Chicago are super nice too..............group hug...

Jingy! I was the 6'7 bushy guy walking around yellow pines with an opiate stare, thanks to my broken back, and soliciting people to walk the meadows with me. Next time we will have to make aquaintaince.

Andy rips it up! I quite enjoyed his tunes all week!! Thanks buddy!

Here's another view of half dome. Thanks to Doug Robinson for the beta on the location.





Edit: LL thanks for the marshmallows!! They made tioga lake camping, that much better.

Special thanks to Graham, who we met early and ended up giving a ride to Merced. This was in our car when we got home:

It was a joy to make friends with you Big Mike along with your wife and the rest of the Canadian team at Yellow Pines. Glad the marsh mellows were a hit.

Another reason why this forum is so awesome...... I read about Mike's accident snowboarding last year and prayed much for him. So super great to meet him in the real.

Have to say Canadians are super fun to hang with. Cheers, lynnie

Good to see Fattrad again (if only in photo-form). What the hell did he do to be banned for life?

It brought back bitter/sweet memories of "The Peoples" Bachar Memorial we held at Columbia Boulder. Ran into quite a few that made that happen including Trundlebum and an English friend.

Thanks 10b4me!

I'll be there Dr.F :)

It's an odd feeling being back in civilization.

I'll be spending the next couple days catching up on all the emails and phone messages I've missed over the past few months. When I drove over the Bay Bridge into Peopleville yesterday, it was a bit of a shock. I've always wondered why people cram themselves into stress filled big cities. lynnie
