I haven't been on this board in a long time, but in a slow moment and on a whim, I hopped on this morning to have a look around. The first thing I saw was this thread about Bob R.
I only met Bob in person briefly once - at the Portal Store following a hike here.
Bob was an amazing guy with a kind heart and a lot of stories to tell, and was always a wealth of information for those of us who were far less experienced than he was (which was most of us).
I know I'm a couple of months late to this, but the hiking/climbing/BP community has lost an icon, and Bob will be greatly missed.
