That's what drew me here. Ambled by 3-4 years ago, a lurker with no expectations except maybe spray. Some of that for sure, but...what's this? I know these guys! This is my campfire. Squat in the dirt, crack a cold one and listen up! And more. People I've met, or never quite met. Climbers I revere, climbers I'm in awe of. They're here too.

Yep, it's amazing. History that breathes, is offhanded, overstates, drifts into spray, gets called down, reconsiders, recants, surprises, moves on to other topics.

And not just history but ongoing hot questions. Like, how should you climb a mountain?

And the thread remains. On a server somewhere, the itty-bitty digital tracks of our hopes and dreams.

Gratitude is one of those virtues that seems to be in large part lost in our modern world. It's good to see it in a few of the finer spirits of climbing. Thanks, Bob.

I believe it was Roger Breedlove who coined the term Virtual
Campfire to describe this forum. For a while he seemed to be one of the main voices of "reason" and politeness here.
He is often first to spot and welcome a newly arrived personage
from the past.

Thanks, All
Apologies to Melissa, probably rolling her eyes.

Scuf and I had this conversation a couple of nights ago,@8k', while batting back smoke from a real campfire, nursing wounds from FA attempts, with background music provided by automatic weapons fire, no place quite like this. Amazing, all in all.

Thanks, weak wrist, for providing some punctuation and helping to make the point!
