Thanks for bumping, Steve. Hope it gets enough traction to stay on page 1 for awhile. Lists, meh.
Here is a pair of Bridwell's jumars that Mike and I had in our possession. We have passed them on to a worthy climber that is a legend in his own right. Not exactly a Bridwell "story" but those jumars are visible in one of the books showing him on El Cap. They are back in use creating more memories.

I hung out with the Bird one typical night in the Lodge Parking lot, late 70s

we had some mean PLs after many beers, and his advice to me was...
and I will never forget these words

"Pee on the side of tires, it's a silencer"

as we took a pee on someone's car's tires

now, it's always on the side of tires if I'm in a parking lot and need to be extra inconspicuous.
