Bump for new and improved. Any of us should be so lucky.

Roy, I cannot express in words what it meant to get your call today. Recent events have me pretty down on myself. To say I was flabbergasted hearing from you is an understatement. I knew who you were when you first identified yourself; I was just dumbfounded.

You are truly a stellar person. Tar, my hat is off to you. Talk to you soon.

A number of years ago I was losing my mind over some health and financial issues and Roy's kindness and calm here on the forum helped me a lot. I will always be grateful for that. Thanks again Roy. You da best!

Eh ... lemme think about it ... OK, I know (if undistracted) I can make a half-way decent sandwich, when pressed to perform.

Although greatly appreciative of Tarbuster, I seem to have missed this thread the first few times it went 'round. His Rambles in the Rockies threads are some of my all-time favorites on ST, not just for the mountain air but all the soul he put into building the narrative. Most recently:

Static Peak, July 1: Springtime tries for the Never Summers!

I learned a lot watching Roy on ST, and enjoyed his company IRL. We've kept up with occasional correspondence, and said hello briefly in Boulder last month.

Roy and I along with others have also shared some great climbing days together, many of them well documented here such as

Climbing at Cathedral & Whitehorse +Flying Kites at Cape Cod

Three Old Coots & Crimpie nab the notorious Ruper in Eldo !

Two Walks with Tarbuster

So you've all seen those photos. Here's one more I think you haven't.

I'm not sure I ever chimed in on any of the past threads,
but I paid special attention to your threads Tarbuster.
I never had the good fortune to know you in real life,
but your contributions here are foundational pillars
that make this site great. It definitely caught my attention
when I saw new posts from you.

Roy is the real thing.

A true piece of gold from the way back machine.

A positive and respected member of the tribe.

Thanks for the call back in December man, I really enjoyed that nice long chat!

It was a sad day when I saw the Stetson had expired, though it had a good run.

Pretty near anything else, amazement.


God bless the effort.
