Back on topic, adding in a little Jane Fonda...

What should wagga get? Some plastic??? smile

Maybe about 20 years ago, Jane Fonda went hiking with a group out of Lodgepole or Wolverton in Sequoia N.P. They went out to Pear Lake and then up to the Table Lands. Only somehow Jane got separated from her companions, and wandered farther east and north. I think she spent the night out without camping gear.

...And I think Max over on that other board is a troll. Has a diff IP from Yosemite Sam, but hails from the same "IrvnCa" Stay tuned, he's probably not done over there.

Hmmmmm - for me that was the Too-Bad-So-Sad notice in Saturday's mail. Four TBNTs in the past 5 years - I'm just not living right or something. We're still coming in July, but it's a lot easier on the mind travelling 4000 miles RT with your family to climb a mountain when you know you actually have a ticket to the dance. Appears I'll be watching the Inyo website like a hawk the next 3 months and, failing that, making my presence felt at the InterAgency Center.

But Gary, regardless - we will HAVE FUN!



There are a lot of other things to do...

One never knows what can happen...

We will be there at Lone Pine Campground July 16 through 18 site 17. Plenty of room for another family! And it's shaded!

The mini-skirt in Oz became so abbreviated we called them pelmets.

And all is not lost - I noticed a compact fluorescent UV light bulb in the store.

Thumbs up. That brings back memories. Back in elementary school days, our folks allowed 30 minutes of TV per kid per evening. My brother and I pooled ours every Tuesday so that we could tune in to KABC-TV at 7:30-8:30 PM.

Did anyone mention The Avengers? Great Brit show. I had a big crush on Emma Peel (Diana Rigg).

Good one John - I loved Emma too! Back in the late 60s she was the bomb, especially with that silky Brit accent.

How'd the river trip go - kayaking wasn't it? We need to get together and haul some weight up a mountain soon. The clock is ticking - nine weeks for me and - what? Twelve for you?

Hi Gary. Yes, the Okefenokee is a river. The head waters of the Suwannee River. Spent two good nights out in the swamp. The bull alligators were just giddy with the warm days and their rising testosterone levels. Lots of bellowing for lady alligators going on. Not too much unlike my college days. And yes, a leg workout is in order. I'm up for anything from KM dayhike to one or two nighter. Let me know. If you get a hankering to hike on exposed gneiss (granite like rock) we should head down to Arabia Mountain in Lithonia. It's Panola Mountains twin. It's a nice park and you can spend an entire day there. Some parts were quarried back in the day which left these nice ledge like features to scamper about.

Wolfman Jack! Not THAT strikes a chord. I loved to listen on the radio to his voice, and that howl was cool.

Did he really broadcast out of Mexico? Wasn't the station "XERB"?

American Graffiti was one of the best movies ever! The Wolfman playing himself, albeit in some small burg in Wisconsin. I think that movie defined the term "retro".

Gumby and Pokey - I forgot about them. Good 'ole clay animation pioneers!
