. I wandered up the Biafo and under the Ogre in 1887

Wow, you must be nearly as old as the OP.

"probably", has to be repeated.

Also, not my business. Respect to all those that make these things happen.

One last bump to get the word out. Neptunes’s now has a bar in the store. Let’s belly up there around 6:00 pm.

Was that really 8 years ago?

Jeff is up to his old tricks. Just texted me "Who's Mike?"


A bar at Neptunes? Do they sell time-shares?

Definitely worthwhile! I drove 1.5 hours to see this show in Seattle at Feathered Friends a while back. Donini's entertaining aura is guaranteed to improve your onsight lead ability by several decimal points.

Ron, thanks for coming to the show and getting that picture put together. Jeff’s laugh makes it really special.

Thanks for the fun last night, Jim, and best of luck on the upcoming trek and climbing in Pakistan.

Here are a few photos for those who weren't there. Apologies for the quality- zooming in on a mobile phone in the dark.

Thanks everyone for coming. We raised over $1,500 for the Balti Children’s Fund. It was great seeing Jeff woffing down pizza at the Southern Sun after the show.

Back home already. Direct flights from St. George make it a quick hop, and I scoped some approach trails near Capitol Reef.
