Brian, I remember a fine day on Mastadon Roof.

I don't know if I am a Supertopian but I have read the Ascent article, an intriguing piece of writing.

Todd, a great story and illustrated!

dee ee and Brian both come to the party....whoa.

WE GOT ALL THREE FIRST ASCENTIONISTS ON THIS THREAD PEOPLE!!!!

See what a curious old school dog out in NM can do with a little probing???

Todd, thanks again for bringing your photos and your insight to the story.

Brian, Can you scan and post the story you wrote for us?

I am willing to try it with your permission, but I've not scanned big text pages before.....

Thanks a million guys.

Indeed Todd, indeed.

When I get together with the old gang, it is very much like that. We always have a gas reviewing some stuff from BITD, but there's a lot going on in the present too. Have to cover all those bases as well, gray hair, less forearm/more ass, kids, ex-wives, aches and pains, bills, etc.

Luckily, we all like to look forward as much as back, so there's always a good dose of planning the next adventure too!!

I hope Brian and Dave are going to return...

When I arrived at Todd's Hogan with my dog Washoe Todd warned me about "Mr. X." X was a local dog, fierce, brazen and a known puppy eater (that's what survival means to a dog on the res, after all they don't get any dogfood). He dominated the local canine population by rule of terror. I didn't know what to expect but I wanted Washoe to steer clear of the monster.
The morning after my arrival (seen in above snowy photo) here comes the beast to check out Washoe. He is mid sized (same as Washoe), a dirty yellow color, scruffy, mangy, ribs showing, he looks pretty badass. He comes over like he owns the place because, well, he does. They instantly go at it, barking, growling, snow flying, a 30 second tornado of dog fur. Washoe kicks his ass! Mr. X is forced to bow down before the city boy. After that they got along pretty well!

All hail Washoe the bad*ss!!

It is really wonderful when the stories (histories and herstories) and pictures get shared like this. It must be a lot of effort but keep it up.

I'm so glad you all are enjoying this. Me too!!

I was stoked to see an older story about a desert cliff, and then the first name I saw that I recognized was Todd's. Plus the coolest name!

That's all it took to get me started. And to get all three of those guys to pitch in, is all gravy.

Brian in his heyday;.......climbing rocks and drilling teeth...
