Saturday night the 26th is also the night of the El Portal autumn dance/fundraiser, which is quite a big event. Those interested could go to meatfest, and then to El Portal later for music and dancing.

"Yes, MeatFest is scary, but you know I'm evil."

And Republican. So MeatFest fits. Actually the Republicans would call it BoobFest, but behind closed doors it would actually be MeatFest. ;-)

Thanks for offering up your meat Jeff, you're a good guy. My schedule is up in the air these days, but I sure would like to be there. If I can I'll RSVP, but if I can't thanks for offering anyways.

Jim, the FaceLift runs from the 23rd - 27th this year. Ken and the YCA have some campsites available for people helping, at Yellow Pine and Camp 4. The last two years many have arrived by the Tuesday evening (22nd this year), and we've had a SushiFest (courtesy nature et al) that night, before the FaceLift officially starts. No sushi this year, but possibly a group activity that evening. Not everyone will be there - many can't arrive before Thursday or Friday. But there's a good bunch.

There were some noise and other issues last year, which is why the BBQ, and perhaps other Yellow Pine based social events, will be at Sentinel Beach rather than YP itself.

Sort of OT, but there is information about camping and other arrangements for the FL this year at:
http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.html?topic_id=887411
http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.html?topic_id=816593

The threads include some discussion of how others (i.e. the NPS and camp hosts) viewed some behaviour at Yellow Pine last year. See particularly Ken's report and comments at http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.html?topic_id=816593&msg=830716#msg830716

We can help Ken and the YCA by being on our best behaviour in camp. There's lots of opportunity to be louder at the various FaceLift evening events, to some extent at Sentinel Beach, and perhaps at Crane or Tamarack if some camp there. No need to bring such behaviour back to camp.

If necessary, I will distribute milk and cookies and read bedtime stories, to ensure that everyone is safely and quietly tucked in by a suitable time each night.

So I'm working on ideas for the FaceLift BootCamp™. Reveille with bagpipes at 06:00, followed by a refreshing jog around the loop road and a dip in the river. Other ideas? Yoga?

Naturally people will be fairly tired by 21:00, and so milk and cookies followed by a story seem like an excellent idea. Quiet, peaceful, soothing... So we'll need to decide on some stories, and characters to play the various parts. Thoughts so far:

Lynne brings up a question I often wonder about... Is it actually legal to walk around in Yos with a beer in your hand? I do it all the time, we all do. Everyone does. However, when the tool is around, out of habit, more than anything I hide/ditch it. Anyone know the real story here?

And as far as a toast/drinking in your campsite (Camp4) yes, it is legal. Your campsite is your home.

edit: Just found this while doing some googling. Apparently, we're not the only ones who have tool issues!

In Yosemite, you can drink anywhere but a moving vehicle. When I lived there, I got in the habit of popping open a can of beer to walk to the store. The store which thoughtfully provided a bottle opener screwed to the front wall. I spent most of my tenure in the park in an alcoholic haze. Good times.

On the other hand, the rangers were fond of walking up to people's tents, demanding they take their empties to the recycling now, and then arresting the hapless park employee for drunk in public. And on special occaisions kicking the sh#t out of them. F*#kers.

I'm picturing Mr. Cheney ON THE SPIT and OVER THE GRILL..







with a crabapple in his mouth...






with a bumper sticker on his butt that reads "Palin For President 2012 to 2014 1/2"!!!

I'm really going to try to bring some snapper or cod, tortillas, and TACO condiments.

I'm thinking 2 or 3 tomatoes (diced), 2 yellow onions (diced), salsa, and some kinda green sh#t too (maybe Spinach leaves) to add to the veggie intake.

Guacamole ain't gonna keep, although it may go with chips too!



Bluey's SuperTacos!!!!!111!!! (I'm open to suggestions on other SuperTaco condiments. Sour cream? Also won't keep, won't serve any other purpose).


Oh sh#t, I gotta bring fresh avocados!!!!!

Yeah, Ricky, it is pretty 'rich' in calories. I usually only make it on camping trips these days where it can rejuvenate a calorie depleted body.

Tastes really good, but ya gotta be careful with the frequency of consumption!


I'm hitting Shuteye this weekend, may be a good time to bust out the Carbonara on Friday night there. I hear some of the approaches can be somewhat long.

I will be gravely disappointed if t*r can't make the FaceLift, to see old and new friends. Perhaps someone else is coming from her area and a car pool can be arranged, to reduce cost.

And grilling Cheney might be fun, but I doubt he's very tasty. I'd settle for branding.

If you need a ride or something, speak up, plenty of peeps out there that can prolly help.


I will be doing up some Carbonara on Friday night when I arrive, just talked to the 'ole lady. I think she said, "Sweet, I don't have to cook then?"

You're welcome to Carbonara and salad Lynne!

You know what, t*r, piss off! I have never claimed to be a 'sensitive' or 'politically correct' person. In fact, you should probably know by now that I'm the opposite.

I call sh#t the way I see it. No fluff, no bunnies, no butterfly kisses. I am, however, very nice to cool and polite people, paradoxically.

If you can't handle me here, you definately would dislike me in person. Maybe it's your loss, maybe mine, apparently we'll never know.

Whatever....

Oh for pete's sake! Enough of this already. We all know that SuperTopo isn't the most subtle form in which to communicate, and that it's easy to misunderstand others.

The FaceLift will be a great time, and everyone will have fun. And I still hope that t*r can make time to attend.

See Fattrad - This is the sort of stuff that happens when people eat MEAT! Even just opening a thread with the word "meat" in it can have the effect..... This never would have happened on a Sushi thread.....

Dr. F.....you will be so totally missing out. The Face Lift is an absolutely fantastic get together of people from all over the world and from many spectrums of belief. We have totally incredible fun.

I went there last year pretty much starting out by myself, alone for the first time in my life. The people made it happen. I was enriched. Awesome.

DUDE, let someone else H2O the Cacti (Yo, how much water do they need?) and come and have the time of yo life. Times ticking .... life's getting always shorter. You will miss out on an incredible Adventure.

Edit: No Craig, bluey is a stellar dude. He's different like the rest of yo Dudes, but he is stellar. You would like him if yo met him in the real. Peace, lynne

Jess, sayin' Dr. F....Peace and Love from lynnie

Must say I'm knot a repugnican fan, but I can vouch that Bluering is a great guy. Very fun and super chill. Politically, I thought the last eight republican years were some of the worst , mean, greedy and violent I've lived. I'm not sold on our current leadership either for what that's worth.

Anyways Bluering is not an @sshole in real life, just on supertopo. Right Bluey?

No, you must, please, put aside preconceived ideas. This is so very special. I could give you so many examples but yo pro don't want to hear. I know much of what you have done and accomplished. I so respect you. But there is so much more to feel and experience. DUDE, come to the lift.

Or don't. But come to the Valley early on the 20th for John's Toast ..... it would be so cool to have you there. You can have my site in C4....I can find housing ...no prob.

DUDE ...it's an era...it will never be the same. I think that's why I'm here in the moment at this time. To help pull it together. I want to do it and make it happen. Peace, Lynne

Blue,

I'm really kind of torn about the facelift THIS year. Like anyone who has been I would love to participate again. Looks like my crew will not be there:(.. but in a way that's an opportunity to have a different experience. I'm kind of bummed I have been relegated to Crane Flats for THE weekend (CANNOT DRINK AND DRIVE). I am slated in to Yellow Pines Tues-Thursday. Trying to reconcile this dilemma. I've been tooled in the park extraordinaire, i.e. anticipating cavity search as ALL C4 occupants watch.....and escaped!!! Trying to be responsible and realistic.

I'm presently surfing fitness singles to find a babe who has a spot in Yellow Pines :) or anythingsortoflikethat. If your a woman 28-50+ and have a place in El Portal or better please contact me. I would be willing to stay there with you if you will provide the wine.

Looks like I'm not going to make it. One of my co-workers will be traveling that week and I am her back up. Maybe I can come up the week before and spread some trash around so you guys can have something to do.

I'm trying to work out coming up the week before. Hopefully I can and Ken can find me some pre-work to help get things ready.
I'll send him an email to give up my choice Yellow Pines digs.

Fattrad needs to bring his buddy "Dick" to both camps so we can show and use it on him and fattrad on who really invented waterboarding. It was "climbers", we just used beer instead of water.

fattrad: Make sure he brings the black gloves and borrow from your other buddies the "eletric belt".
