And finally...for all of those who weren't at the dinner Saturday night...T (nikegirl) asked me to marry her!!! (Of course I said YES!!!)

Thanks again for another great gathering...catch you all on the flip side!

RB

I CAN'T BELIEVE I missed that! Congratulations to you both!! If you couldn't tell, I was exhausted...

I'm really glad everyone had a nice time. What a great bunch of people. I only wish I had been able to spend more time with you all.

For the next one, I promise to get a group site in Jumbo or Sheep's Pass in the main park well in advance. I'll book it in like, December or January...

And, if any of you come out to Josh in the interim, please drop me a pm. It would be great to see you again.

Monica: Many thanks for all the assistance with dinner Saturday. I was a little disorganized. My car looked like a bomb exploded inside!

Are any of you from the Valley? Darryl and I are planning a road trip in late June to Yosemite and surrounding areas, then we're climbing Mt. Whitney July 6/7. If you'll be in that area, drop me a pm too and we'll see if we can meet up...

Take care everyone!

Darcy

Yeah, that was a great weekend!

HIGHLIGHTS:

-Seeing Robert and Nikegirl for the first time in ages. Robert asked what I missed most about climbing with him; I told him it was his farts but it is actually the way he cracks me up, and he didn't disappoint. The one about being unable to fold the viagra chair back up (you had to be there) was worth the trip alone.

-Meeting Steve, Curt and Curt from Alabama, John, Monica, Darci, Nolagkc and Alex and Chase, Josh, G, Phugganut, and remeeting/seeing Jay, David, and Addiroids. My apologies to whomever I left out, but Alzheimer's came on early--I think around my 2nd birthday.

-The birth of a prodigy--nolagkc. Keep your eyes on this guy--I'm anticipating great things. And he's a great guy. AND HE BROUGHT A KEG OF NEWCASTLE. Wow.

-Seeing Robert get engaged to a woman he is crazy about and is obviously crazy about him.

-kegger in the desert. Brought back fond memories of wasted youth (I grew up in yucca valley and palm springs)

-watching a gentleman of a certain age tooling through the parking lot getting a lot of apparently crucial driving beta from his seatmate, only to find out it was the GREAT FRED BECKY.

-the climbing

-the weather

LOWLIGHTS:

-waking up Sunday morning. Ouch. (see "kegger in the desert" under Highlights)

-Robert announcing to me that I was the ropegun for our group of climbers. I told him it was a sad climbing party that has me as ropegun. But I was wrong--it was an awesome climbing party (see "climbing" under Highlights

Can't wait until the next one! Thanks to everyone who put it together.

Bob

Here are some more pics. Monica (monkmiller510) sent me these tonight.


The picnic table Saturday morning:

I thought you said you brought Fruit Loops!
http://img250.exs.cx/...uitloopssmall6tl.jpg



Asleep at the wheel???
Monica came up the second pitch of Bird On A Wire to find me lounging in the sun. I could have belayed like that for hours on that fine Saturday afternoon.
http://img249.exs.cx/...thewheelsmall4ur.jpg

It was nice finally meeting so many of you. It was a great time and I enjoyed your company. I had never met anyone online before and must admit that it was quite painless.

Thanks to fire_eyes & rendog and everyone else who contributed, especially nolagkc for bringing that keg. Now I'm looking forward to the next one.
-Mike

Has a trip report thread been started or should i post here?

Anyway, I had a great time, it was good to meet new people and hook up with old friends. I'll post more later when i get settled in better but I have to give a Huge "Thank you" to rendog and skibabeage. I came out without a partner and stumbled (thanks to jtme and fire-eyes) across these two free spirits dirt-bagging in Ryan, they took me in, fed me, made me laugh till i couldnt breath and wore me out on some great J-tree .....moderates?

ren and scabage, I look forward to doing some more of those 3rd class scrambles with with you again someday.

Anyway, sorry I didnt hang out with more of you at Black rock, staying in Ryan right in the middle of everything was just too good to give up, it would have been cool if we could have taken over that whole half of the campground.

Les

Hey there Mike! It was funny meeting you and Monica in the parking lot at Lost Horse, then only finding out at Thin Wall later in the day that you guys were also rc.com posters.

I had a great time and I'm sorry I didn't get to spend more time with and/or meet more of the group. I was a little shy so didn't introduce myself early on. I'm glad I made it out to the Black Rock camp site though... those chocolate marshmallows were yummy! The keg and conversation were also appreciated :)

Thanks again to fire_eyes & rendog, you guys really pulled this one off :)

Yes, this was an absolutly great trip.
I had intention.
I was to propose to hangerlessbolt.

I'd been planning with rendog and marshall84 for a good couple of months.
I was determined to get Robert down there...
we'd not climbed in 3 mos.
got our "happy" weight on, for the time we had been inactive.

I was glad to see familiar faces going to this gathering f_od,climbs4fun, artm, ffaallliinng,addroids,marshall84, and jt512, as well as get to finally put a face to the cyber voices.

I planned it for our dinner to edchadas.
as nervous as I was, and fumbled thru the start of dinner...
steve(marshall84)said he had an anouncement...got everyones attention, and I slipped my chair out from under me...
said...I don't know what...and got to my knee.
opened my little trinket box....and asked Robert to marry me.

He said yes.!!!!!
giggle.
I am blessed...as I have stated many of times...in this rc.com life...
this is proof.
friends
family
community
happiness
rock
love
life....

Thank you all who were there to cheer us on.
Amazing trip!!

~T

I have some photos of myself, Curt(dirtineye) and Kirra(Pheenix) that I will put up in with my profile photos in the next couple of days, but I also wanted to show you guys some of the nature photos Curt and I took while we were out and about. These photos were all taken within Joshua Tree, or in the Mojave, on the roads between JTree and Las Vegas.

Part of the reason we came out was to see the beautiful desert in springtime, and we were not disappointed! Even so, it was really nice to meet so many of you guys. Interestingly enough - everyone who I met in reality matched up very well with what I had thought they were like on this site!

Now it's Gunks season - anyone heading up this way, drop me a PM!

hey all had a great time last weekend, I got out to the campsite on friday night to say hi to everyone that was there. so great to meet many of you.

I just have one question.....How was G feeling on sat morning? and did anyone take him up on the "roomy" tent offer?

didn't get out there on sat as I was bagged and just wanted sleep. I'll look into setting something up in the rockies for later in the summer maybe...


as far as the cost of the site goes...meh whatever, the money was spent quite a while ago, so don't worry about it yall. just don'\t forget this little canuck the next time he comes into your home state to do some climbing.


have fun out there

I feel so important! I felt like crap, and no one stayed in the tent that night, but I did share it with Nathaniel the next night.

I had a good weekend, even if i did little worth speaking of in the climbing arena. Nice meeting all of you!
