Who's brave enough to post a recent picture of themselves? Not a hero shot of you on some sick route from 60 feet away either. Post something that would allow people to recognize you at the crag/sushi bar. (no crotch shots Ouch!)

I'll even go first... (this is from my bachelor party... we rented a bus to cart our drunk asses around)

The Cancer Society here has a program called "Balding for Dollars". The idea is that you get friends and colleagues and relatives to pledge money, then you get scalped. So for a while you look a bit like the popular stereotype of someone with cancer. And the Cancer Society raises a bunch of money.

They're quite good at getting people to volunteer, particularly attractive young women.

Another is "Jail and Bail", where they get the police to come and drag you away from work (with the connivance of your employer), and you're held until your friends ransom you. If they do. They usually do this to prominent figures, and it's broadcast on the CBC, for the amusement of all.

I hardly have any pictures of me climbing but I'll scan the couple I do have and put them up (someone please remind me, what's the best way to post a pic).

I have one of myself and another of Claude Fiddler bouldering in the Arboretum at Columbia College (Tuolumne County) in 1975. Some of me bouldering on Mt Diablo, and one or two of me on the Mexican volcanoes, along with a group shot taken on Orizaba, or is it Popo? (Ed, take note, Rob Grandfield will be in the pic, say hello to him for me and tell him I will look him up in July/August after I move back home).

In the meantime, this will have to do I guess.

There's a sweet story about the Sergeant Pepper's album cover. The legal department told the Beatles that they had to get permission from all those who were living, to print their picture. (Most were famous, or infamous.)

So they wrote a nice letter to all the people in the collage, asking if it was ok. One of the people was Mae West - I think she's the blonde on the right. She wrote back, saying "What would I be doing in a lonely heart's club?"

But in the end she agreed.

Wow, I'm thinking this is the best thread I've ever been part of. What shines through all the remarkable diversity is the passion climbers seem to take with them along the way. Hair thins, faces wrinkle, minds fog over but the heart still longs for the Big Experience, the Big Love, the feeling of being alive and sharing it too.

Mighty fine . . .

Me after having climbed "Only Blueberries" (5.8) in the Lofoten Islands in Norway in 2004. The route is mentioned in this article by Ed Webster http://www.americanalpineclub.org/AAJO/pdfs/1994/webste_lofoten1994_90-95.pdf The hand jams were a bit hard on my soft skin but I was happy anyways.

The second picture (my photo and camera) is from a climbing competition in Gothenburg, Sweden in 2005. I had the pleasure
of being the driver for those people from Stockholm. The guy in the middle is Simon Brismo who managed a repeat of Dreamtime
(8b+) at Cresciano, Switzerland last summer.

The third picture shows the family of my brother. All of them are climbers, his wife being from China.

i was wondering and i thought you might be, but i wasn't sure, i keep meaning to email you and ask.

YES that's my family!!! i didn't start going till my grandma brought me when i was ten, cuz my parents didn't go.

sometimes in the meadows, my grandma still asks, sometimes, "remember nita and andy i wonder whatever happened to them?"

DOOOD!!!!


at my grandma's house, there is a picture of you with us, bringing my tenth birthday cake! my first double digit!!! you put m&m's on it! i never ever forgot. next time i go over there i'll borrow the pics and find a scanner.


oh my gosh! my cousin and i thought you were the coolest EVER - remember when you showed us your tent cabin and read us that story? we were SO flattered by your attention and wanted to be just like you. You TOTALLY inspired us and both of us worked in yosemite when we were older - me in the valley and my cuz @ white wolf.

she loves you too! i will call her a little later today and pass on your message - should i pass on your email address too? my grandma is totally savvy and hip! she totally uses the internet.


and as for those pics - well i think you look pretty! but how about if i email them to you FIRST and then if you like, YOU can post? i will be there for easter in a couple of weeks - she loves for us to come to her church (episcopal! none of that conservative evangelical stuff for our fam!) and i will borrow them and find a scanner.

so i'll be at g.ma's in a couple of weeks - expect them around easter, 'kay?

do you ever go to the meadows? i forget what dates we're goin' next summer but if you're there at the same time you guys should come hang with us!!!

i'll give my g-ma your email addy - is that okay? i'm sure she'd LOVE to hear from you. we love you too! seriously i wanted to be just like you! i havn't worked in the meadows, it has never worked with my schedule - i almost got a job there when i worked in yos but i had to leave before they closed so they gave me a job cashiering in the valley... i still kinda wanna do time in the meadows but i am think i'm doing other stuff this summer... and i don't really fit in with the climber/stoner crowd at all, i'm too dorky for them!

I think if we all got together, as some of us will at the Sushifest, for the most part, excepting those of us who've been acquainted for 30 years, for the most part we'd lots of us never really have the time to put it all together per our Supertopo names, real names, and personalities.

You know, what with the medium somewhat dictating the flavor of the interaction, the whole cyberspace thing creates an ambience unlikely to be reflected quite the same way on the "outside". This forum is a fantastically mercurial environment with lots of folks chiming in on the same thought stream sometimes simultaneously and often in kaleidoscopic fashion.

Were we all to get together at once, we'd therefore meet on fresh terms and it would flow just fine in that sense because this is such a diverse yet cohesively bonded group here, with a common set of experiences and natural values, but it would be different.

Like me fer instance, in real time I'm actually rather sedate, staid, even...

I agree, this is the best thread. I didn't climb with many of you people, though I hung with several of you and shared beers and joints at Camp 4, but it is great to see all of you people looking healthy.

Could someone please get Vern to get Fiddler involved in this, and what about Jim Keating? About a year ago Roy McClenahan sent me contact details for Claude and we e-mailed each other once, and now I have to get off my proverbial asssss and get ahold of him and Jimbo. What about Tom Carter?

Cybele- you should post the one of you from the patagucci catalog a few seasons back!

Stzzo- I did the via ferrata @ Nelson before I started climbing... and thought it was kinda fun. It can be a fun thing for non-climbers. It allows you ro see climbers from a vantage point that's not a butt shot & not a Yosemite/touron/binocular view- which of course instantly made me think "why am I doing the VFwhen I could be doing what that dude over there is doing" (having never climbed also never exposed me to the joys of flailing either)

Unfortunately there was a fatality on it last year...one of the contributing factors to it being on the market.

I hear there's a VF in KY w/a roof. Sounds like it could be worth trying. Apparently VF's are all over Europe, leftover from ww1?2? when they had to move soldiers over mtns en mass.

Supposedly quite docile unless provoked. The word is the bites hurt like hell, but aren't really dangerous. Among the various things in Oz that can bite you, a huntsman is apparently a better choice than many others.

[edit to James Colburn, who said "Some of my fondest memories of Chico are the pot lucks with all the fantastic food and Andy rockin on the acoustic with Mark Wilpolt and Dan Mcglaulphlin. sp?"] -

James, Dan McLaughlin was a buddy of mine from LA, and the only time I spent in Chico was with him after we drove him up there in his old Mustang. Maybe we met at a party or two, 1983/84? What ever happened to Dan? We used to say that the wind would blow a gentle breeze, then when you turned around, Dan would be sitting there with his guitar, looking VERY relaxed, with that sly smile of his.
