I think a lot of the historical material on Supertopo if it hasn't been erased already, should be in a book.

I agree Jan.

I remember one ambitious Supertopo-an user put together a few threads that had links to the best of supertopo. I think I could find these summary posts, but even that takes some digging.

But that is the irony of a completely unorganized forum...the good stuff is hiding in plain sight.

It would be a nice project for someone to put some of the very best material into a book. I think it is getting easier to self-publish these days.

I started a new thread with the link to Nahoo's Supper Topo Gold .

Did not want to distract from Dons great stories..

Hope he has a few more tales to tell.

Thanks again

I'm editing this as well to stay on topic.

Thanks to Mr. Lauria for the great tales.

This is a marvelous thread. Reminds me of rgold's thread on the triple lever. Great moments in personal histories about colorful characters and feats that should have homes here. Not suitable for Wikipedia.

But what of Steve's North American archives? He has an enormous task. Should there be a strong fund raiser here? Is that appropriate? What do you think, Steve?

So Mr. Gill......I figure you have some wonderful stories to share! I remember talking with Bachar and how much he admired your skills and John had a story or two of his visits with you. Please help this GOLDEN thread going, it is wonderful for those of us who appreciate history and the wonderful first person stories that go with that.
Peace

Thanks, Don, for wonderful reminiscences and climbing history. Seems like you've got much of the material for a good book already written!
