Postcard from 1964! Wow! Way cool.

Fish... Chess.. lol We were convinced that the 'darker clientele' urinated endlessly in the pool and we weren't swimmin in that! I remember we used to play chess over the phone too. Upset the rents big time tying up the phone for hours. I also played some chess with Moonie but dayum!, that boy could play. Don't think I ever beat him.

I don't remember the first time I went to jt but we were big into weed at the time. I do remember dividing up kilos of the stuff on the Driver's kitchen table. Poker games in Dere's garage with that star pipe. Not sure if you did the poker scene much. Cislo did. Cislo and his mom, rofl. What a relationship those two had. He also made it out to the crags with Dere but it never caught on with them.
Too many afternoons/evenings in Driver's van doing pipeloads and brews. He set up a rope ladder in his neighbours tree that we all spent some time on.
Who was the big guy, maybe a friend Chris'. Pat Nay maybe? A quote you said to him has stuck in my brain all these years.. you told him "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life". Heh

Haha... yep

Was way into poker at Deres... and comic book collecting and then playing poker for the comics. Games all the time with Paul Claussen, the Vienna Sausage, Dermot Begley, Tom Czerney, Cislo (lol) and whoever we could lure in. Guys lost a lot of money in those games. I remember bikes and paychecks being signed over on the spot! We must have played like 4 or more times a week!

Haha yeah that was Pat Nay... too funny! He sorted it out after them early days.

Jeff, my father lives in Kentucky and I drove cross country one year to hang out with him. I may have purchased the guide book before or while driving through, I really don't recall. I do remember camping there one night, doing a little bouldering, but not much else. Vickie had given me a CSNY tape to take with me. I think it was titled So Far as she said I would be so far away from everyone. That year I sold my '78 Vette (Chevette) and bought the '66 Dodge van I mentioned earlier. I ever only spent a couple of months in Kentucky. I was born in Hawaii as father was in the Navy at the time but I grew up in so cal. La Crescenta, La CaŮada, Pasadena, Sierra Madre so you can put the Daniel Boone romanticism about my youth to rest once and for all, heh.

Kent!?! No way!
Wow, glad to see you live and prosper!

I'm having flashbacks from Pawnee when we all lived there together.You, me, Washoe, John (Frer-dog), Doug (Moonie) and Mike Casper, with frequent visits from brother John Casper, Cyndie and all the SD locals of the day.

TOO MUCH FUN!

Dave! Good to see you man! I think I may still have Schlitz Malt in my system from those days. And kamikazes were a thing too! Surprised any of us still have functioning livers after those days. I posted earlier about remembering Washoe, what a magnificent beast he was.

"actually fvvk a sheep?

The sheeple of white fluffy color community own the rights to those pics, and a settlement was reached to keep the identity of the offspring private. The national exquirer newspaper bought the rights to the story to keep it out of the mass tardia, though rumors and in-ewe-uendo continue of a new grotto location.

Stan Savino... high school chum of ours. Donít know if that is him in the pic though.

Edit: not Stan in the pic. He was way smaller than that. I donít know who it is. Fuzz, who is it?

Derrick's friend Pierre (can't remember his last name), lived up in Sierra Madre canyon, Derrick on guitar, Pierre on flute.
Here is a camp 4 photo from 1979, Manx supervising, while Russ hangs the food bag

Russ, do you remember the guy we called 'L' in camp 4 one summer? The guy was perpetually blazed, thus the name, and he used to chase squirrels everywhere. A quote from him has stuck with me over the years. "Go, go, go, dig, dig, dig. Acorns have pores!" LOL

Stan Savino I remember breaking stuff at his house. Specifically an old 12" black and white tv that we strung up over a street light and dropped it. Just before said destruction a neighbour of his came out and offered us money for the thing but we all agreed watching it smash would be much more fun and indeed, it was. Heh

That L dude was a tripper... lots of cases like that in the Valley back then. Now they are all living in Sprinters!

Pierre Swadowski (sp?j was the flute dude. Talked to him via email a year or so ago. I was sorta thinking that was him in the pic as it looked like the shadowy figure had a flute... good one!

Best thread on ST by far.

I remember the first time we ran into a group of SBs. We couldn't understand their unique argot. Then CF gave us the primer.

Bleating wasn't the only noise at jt bitd. At some point Russ became concerned about snakes so on our longer walks between formations we could sometimes be heard using his unique snake warning noise. IIRC it was something along the lines of ewwwwww eeeeeeee ewwwwwww with the thought that this noise would warn any snakes in our trajectory that we were coming and they best get out of the way. It must have worked because no one ever got bit!
