The boulders in front of Wheeler Crest and above Swall Meadows are neat.
Not all-that earth shattering, but alot of virgin rock splayed out before those that are willing to hike.

Met RottingJohnny at High Country Lumber Monday, let me know if you need side-work!

Working two remodels right now, I climbed more in LA...

Glad to be here, found a house-sitting gig for a month, then Skip and I move into our new place on the first. She follows for the final move by the 15th.

One month to go before MrE & Maidy are fully settled!

Great people here - thanks to Fishfinder, Tom Grundy, Karine, Tim & Krista Maloney, Tai, Marty, Tony & Nan, Julie & Tim, Ryan, Paul and everyone at The Zoo, EE, Em, In-laws Ed and Gloria, Kevin Daniels and everyone else who has made us feel at home.

I have fond memories of Bishop. Although I haven't been there for a number of years. There's climbing, skiing, backpacking, tuolumne, many good places to go from there...
a great place to base out of....
... I'm kind of partial to the grand Teton area....but this is my last summer here...

Real nice morning at the sads & after a long hot days work in the yard a splendid evening at the Buttermilks. Didn't see nor have I seen anyone at the sad for the last two months & only four people at the milks.

You didn't see Mr. E at the milks because he was working his ass off to survive in Shangrila...Probably...?

LOL - RJ. So true!

We were actually at Windy Wall this morning - it's our closest crag, I think...

Some good memories. Drive around the back roads and look for big globs of now cooled molten glass.

I wonder if they could be incorporated into stained glass. Probably too much work.

Something like this guys stuff?

Bishop is the only place I want to live in the USA. Thankfully I got a good job here, one that keeps me from having to struggle really hard and allows me to rest between weekends & week nights. This place is chock full of the nicest people I have ever met, guess it takes a certain type to try and make a go here.

There are still a lot, I'd actually have to say the majority of people, that believe that climbers don't add anything to the economy here. It would be interesting to see what would happen if for just one year climbers didn't come to bishop.

Had dinner with some older friends tonight...The husband was a Cal Tech graduate and former head of NASA...I asked him if he had ever heard of a Chuck Wilts ...He was a little suprised but said " yes , Chuck was my control systems professor "...I told him Wilts was a famous climber and my friend told a quick story about Chuck climbing up the classroom wall to pull down the chalk board that was suspended on vertical tracks...

I love June Lake
I had a couple stints there.
For the Eastern slope, it's remenisce of living in the valley, cuz it's enclosed, and only thing going on is up on the trails and peaks - nothing else, so you got after it.

I am pretty sure Bishop is the last move we will ever make.

Saying that is a lot for me, I have previously lived in Seattle WA, Bend OR, Bellingham WA, Juneau AK, LA CA, Flagstaff AZ, Ferndale WA, Anancortes WA, Kobe Japan, Port Alexander AK, Rhododendron OR, Dillon CO and Hillsboro WV...and a lot of time homeless-living-out-of-the-van.

I feel settled, maybe for the first time ever.

In Bishop looking at living options.... Girl has the interview for a great job tomorrow while my friend Jose says "Bishop is where good men go to die".... Tons of unclimbed beautiful rock.
Beautiful spot. But can I make a living? Stayed with some great people and looked at all the rock driving up 168.... Having a beer at Black Sheep wishing it was open mic night....maybe drunkin' karoake at Rusty's? We will be here through Tuesday. Does anyone want to take me climbing tomorrow (Monday)?
