Go Team Me!


Nice job Squatch! I understand how good that feels when things seem to go like they should. We all have those days where we just have to laugh at ourselves, but it sure is nice to have an event take place where we can pat ourselves on the back!

By the way, it's nice to see you in here!

Always a cool moment when I see my little girl's eyes light up when I get home.

Sunset out in the middle-of-nowhere near the TX-NM border; stood on top of my tanker/trailer to get these...

Those are great sunset pictures, Pete! No photos, but yesterday in southern California, I watched a crow peck at and generally harass a rattlesnake as it crawled across an exit ramp asphalt. Today, also in California, I've seen several tom turkeys out in the fields, gobbling and strutting for the turkey hens.

This isn’t even close to the beauty I saw today driving through The Rockies in southern Colorado, but it’ll do for my 10hr break. Chama, NM.

I'm all for sunrises and sunsets. I like to think that's when God gets out His lawn chair and watches.

My favorite sights, no matter where I am.

Sunrise and all the promise it brings... And sunsets for gratitude of all that the day has brought me.

I really like this conversation so I thought I'd revive it with something of my own. I spent last week in Washington State on a big rock climbing trip to Washington Pass and I've included a few photos here. They look hazy because it was really smoky from the forest fires they're having out West.

In these pics I'm about 450 feet off the base of the cliff, which is about 1,800 feet above the roadside where we parked. The summit of this particular climb is at about 7,000 feet. For anyone who understands climbing this is a 6 pitch, 600 foot climb rated at 5.11-

All total, if you include the approach hikes up to the base of the rock climbing, I did almost 15,000 feet of climbing over 6 consecutive days. That's over 12 Empire State Buildings!

Here is more information and more pictures about this particular climb:

Wow! I tip my hat to you, Brett. I love to climb stuff, or did in my youth anyway, but I never had the cojones to climb like that.

Some great pictures here, I saved the thread till I have time to see them all.
