Being the first one in line at the Camp 4 Kiosk is not proud. Stealing coffee is not proud either. Climbing the Shield solo is. Nice job.

Brings back memories of climbing it in '91. Thanks for sharing.

You and hard work are no stranger. I was pretty maxed after doing it with a partner. Well done.

Yo,
I have a few answers:
1. I did not win Acopa shoes, but many thanks for mentioning W. A. name.
2. Always, I invite everybody to the Tatras. We have there our Camp 4, which we call Tabor - awesome place. All Polish climbers were born in the Tatras.
3. The kiosk shot - 1/2.5/F3.4/ISO200/-0.7EV
4. I do not use a tripod enough, but also I have my secret tricks when I take photos...
5. Tom? As I wrote, sometimes I asked myself "Where is Tom?", because you are like a team member for most of parties on the Big Stone.
6. Nobody steal the coffee!!! When you buy a first coffee, than you can fill your cup for free - this is official Cafeteria policy (offer). After some time, I realised that always my second coffee taste much better than the first. Because I am Euro, I always buy the first one, but locals do not waste a time and they just start a day from the second coffee. They are smart!!!!When I dreamt about a free coffee, that was the dream about the second one.

Thanks for all response, congrats and warm comments

Marek,

I love how you point out that you buy the first coffee and the next one is free, but some others merely choose to start with the second coffee. Funny, no? :)

Hope to see you sometime again in the valley.
Congrats again.

Cheers,

Doug

So, we cool Yolanda? We ain't
gonna do anything stupid, are we?

YOLANDA
(crying)
Don't you hurt him.

JULES
Nobody's gonna hurt anybody. We're
gonna be like three Fonzies. And
what' Fonzie like?

No answer,

JULES
C'mon Yolanda, what's Fonzie like?

YOLANDA
(through tears, unsure)
He's cool?

JULES
Correct-amundo! And that's what
we're gonna be, we're gonna be
cool.
(to Pumpkin)
Now Ringo, I'm gonna count to three
and I want you to let go your gun
and lay your palms flat on the
table. But when you do it, do it
cool. Ready?
