Looks like it would be a nice relaxing climb if you tossed a rope down for a leisurely rappell and chance to find one of those "spots" Don Juan was talking about on the way back up.
don't forget to pack some Ramen noddles and some heat if you want to stay for dinner.

Was a time i used to crash into that devil's crap full bore on a bicycle all the time on my off time, it sucks in the summertime it'd wreck your behind.


Just so you know I beefed up my climbing saddle "Alaska Style" so I might rent a moped and drive out to see you. I will post the pictures soon in your forum.
I looked all over but didn't see any birds in the cottonwoods. Anybody else see any birds?

One more thing, just a tidbit about D.J.; Do you know that Don Juan claimed to be able to climb that waterfall in one step? He was right.

no idea. i was thinking of dennis johnson.
yeah dennis johnson.
Don Juan was kinda like a mythical man( there are some beer commercials about guys like him) He was a ladies man, soothsayer, philosopher of magic and wizard or something like that. i think he ate a lot of peyote.
carlos castenada wrote about him. I think HE ate to much peyote.
Anyway, I took the one step over the mountain thing to mean that it only takes one step to step over a mountain, the first step.
The " spots" thing is that you can find places where you feel the energy of the earth or universe. The thought being that if you could find these " spots" easily you were doing well.
I have never eaten peyote but I think Don juan was pretty cool. Like dude man its like cosmic awareness man... or some B S like that.
Truth is shut up and get back to work! Want to see my saddle? You have to wait. Want to see my last job? I'll bet you do, its coming.
I'm a gonna hit the shops and kit up with a banging new spool of rope with all the greenery I just made. Might even get me one of those new fangled saddles they got out now for 400. But I don't know, I need boots, hockey pads and a chiropractor too.

I have read the stories of your time working for Tall Trees with amusment.I even believe I know the tree that was pictured in post #424,was it across from the "Artists Center" down a little dirt alley in Spenard?

One thing you can say about Anchorage is that a reputation,good or bad will stay around alot longer than what you might.

Best regards and stay safe.

Great good to hear you got to chase a dream and not lose
a possible soulmate and I must say ya do look happier and
that is what counts:clap:
I guess I would look pretty happy if I was in OD's situation right now. Truth is - I don't have to go 4000 miles to not get some lovin, I can do that right from home. Besides the 16 hour a day 4 day slog-a- thon that this last storm brought on has left me little tirert. I have to pull yet another one off a house in the morning and its been like that for at least 3 days... I think.

Yeah at some point a married man finds out who the prize truly
is! Everyone especially single blokes thinks the woman is the prize
but usually it is opposite. I would love to cook, clean house and
watch the tube and let her worry about the bills but it don't work
that way ya know!
