camped next to hippie drummers the night before a big route. I guess if you come to the valley to

smoke weed, slack line, boulder and play drums and "bluegrass" then it doesn't matter if you

keep everyone up all night in the "climbers" campground. When we got up at 3:30am I left a corn-

backed rattler in there cook pot, smoke that jerry!

Also talking to Mt shop lifers who haven't climbed in a decade is pretty lame.

bump-you know who you are,

how many hippies own drums?

and they all take them EVERYWHERE ALL THE TIME, so why do they play that same lame-ass beat all day and all night and all day and all night and all day.....

.... ba-ba-BA-ba Really?

Your fore fathers were busy stopping the Vietnam war!

you could at least take a drum class.

Slept illegally, in the wrong spot. Got semi-tooled.

What's the world coming too?




I sure miss Rokjox. Chris Mac, please let him back into the ST community. Thank you.

I put those cameras in the Curry Village showers back in 2001. Got nothing good, just a bunch of dirty climbers poaching showers.

I'll name names!

I've always had a thing for taking baths, even living as a dirt bag for many seasons in Camp IV in the eighties. I don't mean the kind of bath available at the Devil's Bathtubs; I mean long, luxurious, hot soaks--bubble bath and all. For several seasons, I was a regular at the Annex dorms women's bathtub, especially after long climbs. I don't think any of the residents even used it. Perhaps they came to fear the tub because of the condition in which I'd leave it as I hurried off after my soak to meet fiends for beers at the Mtn. room. The thick and gritty ring of filth I'd deposit as my calling card was always proud.

i got tooled trying to ride a bicycle past the pizza deck while a beer fight was going on amongst a bunch of curry employees. apparently a sober bicyclist w/out a headlamp is more dangerous than a bunch of drunken employees flinging beers and annoying the tourons.

1999. last summer i spent in the ditch. miss the rock but not the scene. at all.

I'm such a Polyanna.
Had a habit of sleeping under the rocks and hidden depressions up above C4. Got a better night's sleep that way. Oh yea, saved a few $$ as well.
Spent many nights under the stars in the meadow behind the old employee residences.
Scammed showers in the Curry employees area.

Fed a bear. Paid the price
At the old Tenaya Lake campground. Awoke in the night to the sound of breaking glass. Chuckled to my g/f that some dyamned fool had left food in his car. A few minutes later, breaking glass again.
In the morning I went out to the parking area to get something from my old Toyota Land Cruiser. After a climb, had accidentally left my daypack in the back. Driver's door peeled open, glass broken, the seats and rear of the LC full of dirt and sticks and leaves and my daypack gone. OH Yeah......I'd forgotten there were the day's orange peels still in that pack. Fortunately nothing else in the pack.

Quiet, muffled sex in Ahwahnee meadow in the moonlight 100 yards from the path within earshot of the residences, loudly on the top of Unnamed Dome on a quiet autumn evening.

Took more rest days than needed.
oh yeah

<< sort of a variation of Sharsmith being asked what he would do if he only had a day to see Yosemite. "I'd sit by the river and cry." lol

Some folks might now think it's a bad thing, but to me one of the worst places to hang out when the weather turns bad is Yosemite. In the spring of 83 (one of the wettest on record) it rained almost every freakin day. What I did wrong was to not bail and come back when the weather was better. I stuck it out, day after rainy f*#kin day. IMO the Valley, when it rains and the tent's all mildewy after weeks of unrelenting rain and the only recourse is either the Mtn. Room Bar is THE worst place to be. But that's me.
