Seen lots of hookah smoking that didn't involve illegal substances. Heck in STL, there was a hookah bar!


edit: I see it coming - I said Hookah, not hooker. :)

yosguns: So, they were off route?
SH: Yes, waaaaaay off route!
yosguns: So, you're telling me I'm going to have a boyfriend home with 1/2 a rack and some wounds to lick?
SH: Yes, 1/2 a rack...
...OR LESS!!! Bwah ha ha ha ha.


How much of the rack did he lose?

Once my friends and I were overdue coming home from the high country. Leslie phoned another climber, Mike Gilbert, and asked whether she should worry or call out a search.

"Oh, they're probably just benighted," he told her. That word had a reassuring sound.

Hmm...what did he lose? I know he lost a BD cam 3 + 4...lots of hexes and stoppers. More than that cause it seems to me, all he had left was the yellow alien. I haven't yet surveyed the damage. I've been assured new gear is on the way and he and his partner are splitting the cost (nice of them). DRC...wanna help me out here?

EDIT: Why? I can see the glitter in your eye from here. ;-)

Um granted this was him mumbling after drinking more beer than pieces of lost gear but I know he lost a full set of nuts (oops), those hexes I sold him years ago and a #3 and a #4. He brought a 1,2,3,4 a set of nuts, and those hexes.

Funny how those aliens are always there for you...God bless the yellow alien.

How much beer would it take to bribe YOSAR to lower me off the top on one of their long ropes? Werner?

I'm with GC on repeating this part....

SH: Yes, waaaaaay off route!
yosguns: So, you're telling me I'm going to have a boyfriend home with 1/2 a rack and some wounds to lick?
SH: Yes, 1/2 a rack...
...OR LESS!!! Bwah ha ha ha ha.



the fact that there is that much booty out there isn't worth much to me. The laugh I got outta that commentary is worth the read :-)
