Bump for the 4 year anniversary of the loss of one of the good ones.

Missed and still remembered.

Time flies. I think of him often.

Found this in the garage just yesterday.

My wife and I were camping in Yosemite in 1986 at either the Pines or Rivers campground.
Two guys pull up in a VW van and say "We just got down from the Nose and can we stay here for the night?"
We say sure and spent a pleasant evening around the fire with these guys.
I remembered that one of them was named Richard Harrison.
Fast forward to 2000 and I was climbing at Red Rocks with my friend Carl.
We stayed with Carl's friend Wendell Broussard. One evening Wendell was talking about his friend Richard Harrison. I told the story about camping with Richard and Wendell said "That was me with Richard and that is MY van"

He then took me to his garage and showed me the van.

Condolences to family and friends. I knew him from Camp 4 but never climbed with him.

Thanks Tarbuster

Sad to remember indeed.

Anyone know how to get a hold of Lisa? The email I have for her no longer works. Maybe pass mine along to her?

Are you on Facebook. Lisa is active and posts there.

Thanks CB! But no, I don't do FB. However, my wife does. I'll have her reach out to Lisa at some point. I have most of her dad's BITD kit so don't want to loose track of her.
