When your shower in the parking lot outside your rig.

When you helpferry food from the dumpster to the waiting volvo, while local kids look on in horror. "Stay in school!"

When your idea of dining out is eating random peoples leftovers at the Woe Nelly.

You've spent more than 250 nights in a year in your rig, tent or some other bivouac.....

You consider a 40 of King Cobra and a couple of cans of beanie-weenies a date dinner.

When you have to dig through your haul bag to find
your cleanest dirty shirt to go out for dinner after the big wall.

...your climbing food leftovers are the same stuff you eat on non-climbing days at home.

...you live out of the same ditty bag at home that you do on the wall.

...you feel more comfy on the floor in a sleeping bag than in a "real" bed.

You're totally stoked to find an unopened pack of frosted Pop Tarts under the drivers seat. Loose change is the bonus.
Cheers, Michael

Glad to see I'm checking off most of these :) In fact, all but the Taco Stand thing... but hey, it's a new era.

The TP comment is reassuring... I thought I was a deviant there, since I haven't paid for TP in over four years.

Edit: I'd never eat pop tarts. But I did find a unopened Cliff Bar on a route once. I ate it, of course!

You're a slacker if you believe #1 is correct.

Or you're not drinking enuff. . .
You should be legally drunk when you wake up, if you've been
drinking. . .




LOL!

You wake up one morning and notice there's moss growing in your hair.

[What famous climber said this motivated him to move?]


Your version of an uncomfortable bed is a pair of aiders and a harness.

Your version of a comfortable bed is pine needles.

You need money only for:
- Chalk
- Resoles

Your "super market" is the campground dumpsters on Monday morning.

Olde E is a once a week luxury treat after 6 days of CamoXXXX tall cans.

Sleeping in the (slightly heated) camp4 handicapped shitter is a real option during extended periods of cold or rain.

You hold your best cord up to the light and can see through it.

You have shellac'd the paper cups from every major fast food and coffee joint keep them in your rig to get lifetime free re-fills.

You pick cigarette butts out of ashtrays, extract the tobacco remnants and then roll it into a whole cig, using the blank pages out of the back of a pocket sized Gideon's bible because rolling papers are way too spendy.
