EITHER WAY, THERE AIN’T NO BOOK COMING FROM THIS JOKE OF A PROJECT
This seems to only cover two choices. Are there others?Let me be the first to volunteer to finish and publish the book if Ric perishes before it is done.I will of course be represented by the Arellano-Felix lawyer of choice (lives right across the bay, we used to cliff jump together).867-5309

Gillsburg, Tenerife, Lower Merced Pass Lake.

Something's happening here - No?

Reports are that various thrillseekers and memorabilia hunters scoured the site for guitar picks.

Did the plane come close to going down in the Mississippi River? Was the water freezing?






It's get murkier & murkier, or clearer & clearer, depending on how you view it.

On the 27th of March, 1977, a KLM passenger plane was taxiing along the runway at the Tenerife airport in the Canary Islands of Spain, and it collided with a Pan Am jet. It was said that the pilots of the KLM plane were confused over departure instructions, and they took to the runway without permission. A total of 583 people were killed in the crash.

No marijuana was recovered. [removed - out of kindness I suppose].






Draw your own conclusions. Where was the mouse of merced during all these happenings?

Zman, you're often quite funny but I think it is, at the least , bad form to imply the Tenerife tragedy was in any way influenced by the evil weed. It was simply poor communications on
both the controllers' and pilots' part.

Reilly -

I defer to your greater knowledge of aviation history and have withdrawn any comments besmirching the reputations of the pilots.

Of note is that the plane crashed in 1976!

My god...

We are less than a year and a half from the 10 year anniversary of the first post.

Yosemite Gold is due to come out this year. I think you should do every thing you can to have your book available within a month of Yosemite Gold's release.

Most everybody knew who Amelia Earhart was, nobody knows where she was (is?).

huh? Amelia whats-her-name? and this thread is about what again? some weirdly segmented view of popular culture, aero history and juvenile drug references - no wonder licky's such a no-show on his own site, even he must be embarrassed by the digression

mo sid, mo sid (what no applause?)

a little tunnel vision there, eh sid?

you better free your mind instead

but keep on truckin'



Anyway, the only thing interesting about this thread is the digressions, you on the other hand, as has been pointed out repeatedly, are not.

c'mon Z-pac - you're smarter than this . . . wasting your intellect and obvious talent on a silly Licky-stained internet thread seems beneath you somehow - why don't you join the lickster for the oft-mentioned "cup of coffee" he's always offering me and help him finish his chore . . . since he's clearly not up to the task - if you have the time to post mr. magoo maybe you could lead the blind licky to water

Well sidmo, you're right. This is clearly escapism. Better than TV though.

Maybe I should jump ship about here.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ – no, no, don’t go - say it ain’t so – just because licky bailed out is no reason to quit - Yer right about one thing, this thread beats TV, or basic cable at least – but think about helping licky – lawd knows he needs it, and you could be the stimulus to prod him on to his fifteen minutes of glory – imagine just sitting on all that data so painstakingly accumulated over these many years . . . YEARS!!!!

Help the fella out – you’re good with photos, at least you could edit them – if he’d just post his top-secret manuscript I’m sure we could tighten it up for publication – maybe he doesn’t want to share his royalties – could there be a divorce or student loan debt or some reason like that he doesn’t want to be paid for anything just yet? Maybe he’s worried about getting into a higher tax bracket or losing his obamacare subsidy but we need to get our boots up his ass or this thing will be ancient history

Ya know what cracks me up about sidmo? This is all about me telling him that one I don't need his help to write the book, and two I don't think he was there. From that point on his rant became a rage. Ya think I might have struck a cord?

There were a few “bottom feeders” in the Valley in 1977. They failed, they were too late, or they were too lazy to make it to the lake to score. But, there was still “opportunity.” Anyone here fit that category? A few were bitter over their own bad luck, laziness, or poor timing to the events.

No, I was 14. But I do remember climbers talking about it back then.

Hence my interest.

Randisi, commendable. Not you by any measure. It is an interesting story. And, there were scumbags wandering around the Valley after the events settled in 1977 and 1978 scamming everyone. That's what I mean.

Hey TMJ is it snowing there? In 87 we uncorked some airplane from a test tube in Fresno. Remember that? Tasted like the dust under my dryer.

Swirling snowflakes, but nothing else for now. As for the test-tube, I'm still coughing.
