Uh, why not just publish what you have now and do a sequel or addendum?

Are you accounting for diminishing returns?

If after all this time, you don't have 98% of the story, then I'm
gonna have to question your research strategy.

I gotta say that getting closer to the ten year mark on this thread that will not die is a high/low water line for this forum. I sincerely hope Itchy and Scratchy work it out and stop all the fightin' and fussin'. Theirs could be a love supreme if they just let it happen.

Timidity, you're back! Cool! You talk to him, he always listens to you. Ask Licky if he really wants to publish . . . or not?

see, that's the problem

Licky wants you to care, to wait patiently as he toils away - he wants you to help without thanks, to confess without benefit, to betray without penalty

and to kiss his ace the whole time

everybody ask Licky if he's planning to publish

Every August I reread what I've written. Each time I am confronted by new information that either contradicts what I have been told or opens new doors for me to explore. Did a Park Ranger descover the plane and it's cargo before anyone else made it up to the lake? How is it that the DEA Agent In Charge lost all of the evidence and ended up as beat cop in a California town and eventually got busted for shop lifting and had to leave the state? Sure, these stories don't seem to interest sidmo, but they do me. And I hate to say it sidmo, its not about you....its about me and my research. So take your f*#king rant and sit on it...I have way too much other information to work on that a piss ant like you. Enough said...no more sidmo for me

What a crappy event to become obsessed with.

Of note, I only read the last 3 posts.

Homie, if you don't know by now that two rangers discovered the plane while on winter backcountry patrol...well, sure, whatever.

And you misspelled "discover."

Why is this thread called the 1977 plane crash?

The plane was discovered by the Rangers in December 1976.

The only thing related to the plane in 1977 was a lot of pot smoking.

While we're waiting for Licky's book, I'll mention a work of fiction based on the plane wreck. First recommended by Hossjulia here on ST, it's called High Country and written by Nevada Barr, part of a series about a woman park ranger who has adventures and solves crimes in various national parks around the country.

Camp 4 and the climbers have a cameo appearance as the real action takes place among park employees and a drug cartel. The rangers are clueless until the end, when the whole scene is resolved. Of course one is left wondering if the author had some inside information or just made most of it up, based on a minimum of real information. Entertaining for the what ifs and the descriptions of life in the park for rangers and concession employees.

Let's hope the book is as entertaining and educational as this thread is, eh?

I've read a number of books yhat were based on similarly mundane events yet worked well
aas a carrier, if you will, for intriguing voyages on tangents. As I discovered in Tuscany tripe
by itself isn't particularly noteworthy but it also serves as a gret carrier for memorable sauces.

Hey climberdudes, it'd the old pissant sidmo here, taking a break from pissing on fire ant mounds to respond to our leader

ARE YOU FOOLING YOURSELF LICKY? 'CAUSE WE'VE ALL HEARD YOUR JIVE FOR TOO PHUCKIN MANY YEARS NOW - SO YOU'RE "THROUGH" WITH ME? OUCH THAT HURTS!!! YOU WERE NEVER INTO ANYONE WHO EITHER WASN'T YOU, OR SAID CRAP YOU AGREED WITH - IF YOU ARE SO KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE PLANE, LIKE FROM ALL YOUR NARC BUDDIES, WHAT THE HECK DID YOU NEED US TO CHIME IN FOR?

YOU PHUCKIN PHONY - YOU CAN'T WRITE YOUR WAY OUT OF A WET PAPER BAG WITH A HOLE IN IT - YOU'RE STUCK, ADMIT IT


SOMEBODY ASK LICKY IF HE CAN PUBLISH, OR IF HE CAN'T - SEEMS LIKE ALL HE DOES IS RANT
AND RANT RHYMES WITH CAN'T - HE CAN'T WRITE AND CAN'T PUBLISH AND MY GUESS IS CAN'T, AND NEVER COULD CLIMB
