Hello!

I used to, and still do in fact, hang out at that perpetually dying place called rec.climbing, and now I've seen the light*.
See some old faces here.

Anyway, hello, everybody, here I am. (Oh, this is for you - where do I put the bottle?) "Here" being Cambridge MA for now, but not for long. Flying to SFO next week. Will be at South Lake Tahoe somewhere with friends next weekend, and then going to Yosemite with big but unclear plans, and no partner.

Anyone want to play? I'll be leaving all kinds of messages at Camp 4, I imagine...

Cheers
Paulina

Hopefully you have at least rinsed the Zauman/Bubb/Slime/MadDog detritus off you before entering the 'Taco..... welcome! (it is only those 4 over there now, isn't it?)

Hi Russ,
I haven't seen any bilefest action from any of them in a while. Maybe I just killed all those threads, though. Nice people occasionally post a TR or ask a question, but it's pretty slow going.

To join this demented club my dear, you must have nerves of titanium, sharpened teeth, bad breath, a thick layer of dirt over the body and smell really bad. I hope you qualify. More of the distaff side can only help.

I have cooking pots of titanium, and the rest of the stuff I'm hoping to come by in the next few months via a natural process...

Jaybro: worry not, there is only here -- there or anywhere.

Yes, FaceLift. September 26th - 30th. If you want to meet a whole bunch of SuperTopians and their unindicted co-conspirators, in the flesh, come to Yellow Pines campground in the Valley on the evening of the 25th, for the BBQ. (Sushi available by arrangement with nature.) Some free camping (no triflers, please) may be available through Chicken Skinner, aka Ken.

See http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.html?topic_id=439745&msg=447226#msg447226 for much more about the FaceLift.

I'll be in the Valley from the evening of the 21st onward, and when not helping Ken, am available for belaying duty, and perhaps to follow the gentler 5.7s.

Anders

Edit: The Hotel SuperTopia - you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.

BTW (shameless), you like sushi?

I am totally losing it.
All my marbles just rolled onto the floor.
Between this and the neebee thread, we have ample proof that climbers, at least the variety present here, are fully insane.

I've been reading the punchlines of these threads to Lisa,
And she agrees with me: you ain't never going to get kicks like this on a runner's forum, or anywhere else on the planet for that matter.
