I heard. back in the day, via the grapevine rumor factory, that you soloed the NW face of Clouds' Rest (Yos), In winter. If true and If inclined I'd love to hear about it, here or via email.
Sorry, I can't afford the book (I'm a teacher).

As 'they' say here in Cyberspace,

Dude, WTF?

Thanks,

Wade

Wade-

To borrow a line from Ken Kesey: "It's the truth, even if it didn't happen."

Happy New Year!

Hey Wade, just because his answer was terse and nebulous there's no need to insult the guy. lol

(Along those lines; my favorite Lowe quote is, "I can neither confirm nor deny the vagueness of my comments." but it was a different Lowe.)

If you are poor because of being a teacher, use that to your advantage. The book could be assigned reading for your students. I remember doing numerous book reports in school. You got to think outside of the box.

Wade-

If you must know the REAL truth (if there is such a thing) - I'm not guilty. Furthermore, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of Ron-O.

Tar-

It's about old rumors. Some are true, some are hard to deny and with some it doesn't matter. I'll be toasting to all you old farts tomorrow. May we all remain legends in our minds.

Merry Happy to you all.

-Jeff

edit: Roy, if I drink too much tomorrow night, will I be obfuscated?

So if it got rimed up real thick and things stayed cold that thing must've been a cool solo.

Poor because you are a teacher. Lame-assed excuse. 180 day work year on average compared to normal 235. And teachers on average have 5% absenteeism compared to industry average 1.7%.

On top of that they usually have a defined benefit retirement plan that is far better than industry. Get a summer job, or don't complain.

wow TG- you're making a lot of assumptions. Not the least of which is that I give a f*#k about what you think about anything.

Happy New Year.

Oh my gosh, I can't believe I would ever defend a schoolteacher like my ex, however I would have to say she was one of the hardest-working professionals I have ever met. She was always at home doing lesson plans and marking grades into the late hours, and even on weekends.

During the summer "holidays" she would take courses to better herself professionally. That woman put in way more hours than most anyone else I knew.

As for pension plans, the teachers up here have Superannuation, which is a money-purchase type plan, where you get your bucks to invest as you see fit. It is hugely superior to a defined benefit plan, where you get a certain amount per month.

No doubt she will need a financial advisor at retirement to help her invest her scads of dollars. I am doubtless the last one on her list.

Jello states: Furthermore, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of Ron-O.

Though the truth is not obfuscated in this case, according to urban legend (well, I read it in a comic book), Ron-O does exist and this is what he looks like:

I don't know about this claim.


BVB knows Ron-O and he says that guy is an imposter!
