I did not know Brutus but EM that was some powerful and beautiful writing you posted.

Bump for the gone but not forgotten as I said before you know when you read things like what's written here you have missed meeting a person we all should have met and learned something from.

I was looking for a picture of my kids and happened across some road trip pictures from the year we gave Allen Steck a 75th birthday party at Red Rocks. This shot is of Bruce, Allen and Inez in our room at Bonnie Springs.

And here's another as Brutus talked about climbing Waddington with Em during his slide show that had folks dropping their jaws repeatedly.

Awesome slide show.

Yo Mad Dog! Nice pix, and great memories. How's the family, and all the blow-up doll harem?

Here's a link to Brutus's TR of the Waddington climb. It truly was a jaw-dropping trip.

Hi Em!

Our family is fighting it out in the trenches. Nolan is a freshman at CU, Logan a junior at Monarch High. Karen is hanging in there, keeping us sort of in line. Here's another from that party night...

And one more. That's Nolan that Bruce is talking to. Bruce was patient with our kids and treated them so good. That meant the world to us. Eric Coomer is loading up the projector and that tall guy in the back is Bob "Trango" Ternes. Logan is the little guy partially blocked. He's a bit over 6' and about 175 these days, pulling down harder than me.

How are you, Em? Hanging tough I hope!

Careful with the slides, there's Magic in them shots!

I still think of Brutus masterpieces like "The 11 grades of 5.11" (if memory serves, the easiest is 11a and the hardest is .10 OW)

Wow, just ran across that journal entry by Brutus. Incredibly beautiful. He continues to amaze. That's a saver, for sure.

Thanks for sharing it Em; I really enjoyed meeting you on that icy, icy night in Bishop last November!

Love the recent photos too.

How can you feel like you knew (in at least a small way) someone you never met? Brutus sure had the ability to project himself in that way.

Peace,

Thanks for posting those pictures Mr. Dog. That was a fun week, but somehow we missed the night of the slides. Our loss.

Just the day before had been looking at Brutus pics, and noticed this one in particular.

Note the swarshbucklin broad sword in his belt!

Yarrrrr, matey!

He brought a half gallon of Jack and that kept him busy. For one night. I have a picture of him with the big jug of whiskey in one hand and a beer in the other. It was the closest he could come to a Karate Kid kind of balance.
