At times I have that same problem. And unfortunately it's usually just the worst times. :oops:

He's a petroleum engineer and doesn't hike much, so he just wore what he had available. She wears those pretty often; she has several pairs of socks with toes to go with them, too.
I thought that comment I made about your daughter was one of the cleanest lines I've made on this site.
True enough. I wouldn't dare post that picture on TGR.

I've been silently awaiting those trip reports myself! Maybe Bill could set up some kind of countdown icon on the Home Page?

Maybe something like the Twelve Days of Wuldier. A mountaineering carol of sorts.

On the first day of Wuldier...

"Technically" back on Page 4 Wuldier did say it would be late March/early April. So we may not see a trip report until mid-April.

As for myself, I was contemplating doing the diamond on Longs during the next good snowstorm, but I may just stick with my original plan of doing Yale in late-May.

So then, one possible adjustment to our mountaineering carol:

On the first day of springtime, Wuldier sent to me,

Boy am I glad the internet didn't exist when I was younger and foolisher! We would have never been able to learn from our mistakes.

I remember heading up Mt. Washington in NH in FEB 1978 equipped with a brand new ice axe and big red ball rubber boots with ice creepers. My hiking partner was using a small grub hoe as an ice axe. We made the summit by chopping steps up the summit cone. Luckily for us, we saw someone almost fall to their death by uncontrolled glassading. They let out a Death Scream just before they were about to slide over the 1000' near-vertical cliff above Tuckerman's Ravine but were saved by slamming into a small boulder protruding from the snow. We immediately recognized the importance of NOT falling.

Perryw, being a guy, I want you to know that I can easily forgive just about anything a fellow male does between the ages of 12 and 24...

But 30? There's just gotta be a limit to the foolishness of the Y-Chromosome. LOL

Naw, I still do stupid stuff at fifty. Like hiking up redcloud in a thunderstorm with my wife's hair sticking straight up from the static electricity

Or climbing a dry waterfall in death valley and almost couldn't make it back down.

Or having the tent blow away in the Hole in the wall at Death Valley the very same day.

I could go on...
