what part of indiana are you from? im from noblesville

Originally from Richmond, living in Tell City (on the Ohio River between Evansville and Louisville).
I've been to quite a few good concerts in Noblesville.



Aaaahhh. I love Deer Creek. It was my favorite outdoor venue (until being blindsided by Red Rocks!! :shock: ). I saw the Dead many times there before (and on the eve of) the gate crashers - unfortunate (the gate crashers, that is).

I miss Jerry!! I'll listen to him before heading out on a 14er - lifts my spirits!!

Nah, no tunes for me on the trail. If I'm with somebody it's rude. If I'm solo, I absolutely prefer the solitude and quiet, at least as much as possible.

I also don't own an ipod but I do hike to a song (in my head) that suits my intended pace to help me keep a steady pace when hiking alone.

No iPod, but I once got a Fu-Shnickens song stuck in my head for the entire trip across the sawtooth and most of the way up Evans. I almost threw myself off the edge to make it stop.

Oh my. That kind of crap happens to me all the time. I make it stop by listening to hard core death metal all the way up. It drowns out all that nature crap and gets me in the mood for marmot punting.

I once had "March from the River Kwai" running through my head regularly for about 6 months. It would appear almost every hike, while driving, while working, you name it. It was amusing during the hikes, but damned frustrating other times.

- A mountain is not a checkbox to be ticked
- Alpinism and mountaineering are not restricted to 14,000 foot mountains
- Judgment and experience are the two most important pieces of gear you own
- Being honest to yourself and others about your abilities is a characteristic of experienced climbers
- Courage cannot be bought at REI or carried with you in your rucksack

One word = Boney M.

The most talented musical group out of England since the Beatles. THe guy's dance moves rival Michael Jackson, and his voice is Sinatra-esque. Check out the hilarious bell bottoms and white suit he has on about 50 secs into this vid:



And of course Brown Girl in the Ring, what Joe about died to:



You're not having a mountain, or near death, experience without Boney M. ;)

OH NO ! #-o Last time someone posted about Boney M, it took me two months to get that damn tune out of my head. Now I fear it's gonna be with me forever !!!

Yeah really!
I checked out a few of their numbers and I could not stop laughing at the dance moves all the way thru 'Daddy Cool' !! There should be laws against this :!:



And I now know where the Atlanta Braves got their trademark tomahawk chop from!
