My flames still burn, if I fan them enough.

Life is still good,

Even though I still can't breathe right

Cheers Mouse!

Nice deck Tim.

Hidden hardware and clear wood.

Stay on it!

Perhaps I'll show a photo of what old age will do to it along with Mr. Sun and Purple Rain

Wow, the deck looks great Tim!

Sounds like it's heating up down there also,
hit 103 here yesterday.

Mouse quit being a punter;

take some morning walks and pics along the way. ;)

Hope you both are doin well.

I wish I had a picture,
Years ago, after climbing my route on the right side of the chasm opening,
Romano pointed at the top of a blocky formation that forms the left side, of the start of the Pinnacle, below the Bowl,
saying that after the near chimney sized crack peter'd out, was the easy part of
Swamp Beast.
He was right; The crux was 20 feet lower, still near the crack, so near gear.

At a point where having been forced out of the rare, granite like Gunks crack, onto a classic all white set of ever so climb-able but un-protectable tips sized edges.
You are forced to choose, continue, run-out diagonally 15 to 20 feet, in either direction away from gear, to an edge, & up,
or place gear (back) in the crack & head up into the 60 foot blocky top; an overhanging series of 4 stacked blocks, forming a roof/face to a horizontal to the next overhanging face.

it devastating, really, for the 1st 15 years it was all film. The only way it was worth it was to have, at least quality glass. (Lens). That, with my old school hammer & pin carryng ways, were ill suited for each other. As things went on in the 80s, lots of well tooled photographers were locking down the outdoor sports paying gigs.
It wasn't until I'd found balance and chosen a coast that I tried to play catch up. In the 90s, I was stable enough to collect pictures & notebooks from a few places my travels had taken me. Mostly a trove from a Santa Monica apartment that was 4 blocks from the ocean. I'd left the stuff there as much to have a west coast kit ready to grab and go as it was a way to stake my claim to a comer of a closet & couch/floor space when I was in the neighborhood.

There was an old North Face pack, a red Scramber, in it a full rack, draws, JRat harness + chalk bag, . .

I have to Admit it - I've been sucked in
I have avoided this - never clicking,

( A thread about a egg head?)
Oh how wrong I was!

& this is where Tooths been hangin'? whatz up dood?

The wife has some opinions,
That is the main reason to have not joined in.
She forbids any non-real conversation about no one we will ever meet,
that I assume are real people, that I talk at on the Internet.
You get what she's dealing with so you really can't blame her.

I 'll ask if she has a position? it wouldnt surprise me. . .
come to think about it . . . . ?

6/19/18, "Considering a change (ot)::a thread by happiegrrl2

oh happie,!

Stop lionizing the Preserve!
They, use people, and cast them aside. Are they extending you any opportunities, anything for all your loyalty?(beyond "the deal")

I may be wrong, but I know what this sounds like, and it is not new.

There are 3-5 private residences on the Mnt House property. At least 2 of which have had Care Takers positions over the years.

I'm glad to hear that a thing is at least on the horizon. Do not pick you loyalty/love for the Preserve, over your own interests.

Don't let, - "Paradise lost"- 'or feeling as if it is slipping away & things changing, cloud your thinking, and lead you to miss a one time opportunity.

Also Along The Hudson on both sides are aging mansions with In holdings The one(s) I'm intimately familiar with, I'll see if are vacant- has had some unpleasant issues or did? with Sovereign Citizen types, hunting all year long on the grounds, from barns in the the ignored orchards; poaching. So they do not come recommended, but it is a place to ask after, run by a big wig in the Methodist Church Hierarchy,
seems an un-likely fit/ so maybe never mind.
