BVB at Joshua Tree Trip Report
Sunday October 30, 2011 12:35am
It had been ages since bob had joined us on a climbing trip, but he wasnt available when Rick and I went to Joshua Tree recently. But instead of being disappointed and moping, we made our own bob! It had been awhile, so first we needed to get reacquainted.

After that it was time for a little one on one time.

Rick and bob went for a nice walk

Then it was my turn

oops! lilbob has to go to the bathroom
Credit: gonamok
he needed a little help going tinkle
Credit: gonamok
but he managed number two just fine. We were very proud.

Next it was time for some hackeysack. Bob was rusty but did ok

Bob had been behaving himself but as soon as we turned our back he got in trouble and somebody called the rangers. Rick tried to help, but bob was out of control

and quickly in custody

Rick managed to smooth things over, and got bob released with the promise that he would be properly punished.

I talked to bob

and changed his underwear, for he had peed his pants
Credit: gonamok
Then a little playtime and bob was back in the pink
Credit: gonamok
We were all ready for a little bouldering, and bob got off the deck right away
Credit: gonamok
Credit: gonamok
and he was soon cranking the rads
Credit: gonamok
We decided it was time to teach lilbob how to pee like a climber, so we wouldnt have to keep taking him to the bathroom
Credit: gonamok
quick learner that he is, bob pikced it up in no time
Credit: gonamok
It was a time of friendship and discovery
Credit: gonamok
Bob has a way of always picking upour spirits
Credit: gonamok
Credit: gonamok
Credit: gonamok
We all had a great time So long from Joshua Tree!

This TR would be better if there were some political & religious rants we could sink our teeth into and spin the comments out of control.

As it stands, these shenanigans are exactly what makes ST a place worth visiting. Thanks!

well, Ive known bob-o since we were both knee high, and his suspenders phase is pretty recent, relatively speaking. The bvb in my mind is a long haired, counter culture scumbag cragrat who spent his meager stipend on chalk, beers and wired stoppers. He didnt start wearing suspenders till he got a job.

Still, it would have been a nice touch, wish i would have thought of that

Stalker bump.

I loved your Nose TR so much I snooped to see if you had posted any other gold, and sure enough, paydirt! The icing on the cake is that you got a ranger to play along and let you take pics.

Oh and alleyehave, i neglected to answer your concerns the first time around. That was a dummy that we made to look like a miniature bvb, just a dummy. Bvb was not exposed to alcohol or in any way harmed by the making of this trip report. As for the dummy, he cant drink thus was unaffected by our empty beer cans. Rick and I drank like the aging, lifelong climbers we are, so you should be flabbergasted that there arent dozens of empty beer cans in every frame. I guess were slowing down.... Thank you for your concern, sir.
