Made reservations at the Hostel. Thank you, Doug!

Figured this would be the better solution since Wifey-Pooh will be assisting Steve transporting all of the computers. I believe there are 20 CPUS plus other peripherals. And we have to split that between two vehicles. Then there are the tools, too. There won't be enough room for the camping gear. So, we will be "roughing it" in Lone Pine not BEFORE but definitely AFTER Thor.

Anyhoo...we will be sure to look you up. I always want to meet people on this site. Already met Steve, wagga, MooseTracks, ynottony...and if I forgot any of you kindly give me a swift e-kick on this forum! Thank-you-very-much!

Now, back to our regularly scheduled program...

If you need to blow a "gasket" will probably assuage you with a cold libation of your choice! grin

Have fun

The only thing holding me back right now is my dad is seriously ill in the hospital with cogestive heart failure and pneumonia. He has lost most cognitive function and the neurologist wanted to do a lumbar puncture on him today to determine if he has a blockage of cerebral spinal fluid on his brain causing some of his problems.I had to inform the neuro that my dad is on blood thinners and can't have a lumbar puncture untill he is off of them for a while.I am afraid to leave him right now so we are on a wait and see basis.

Spend time with your dad, Rod.
Anything else can wait.

Steve just headed out to get some lumber for the project.

A couple of blonde men in a ute drove into a lumberyard. One of the blonde men walked in the office and said, "We need some four-by-twos."

The clerk said, "You mean two-by-fours, don't you?"

The man said, "I'll go check," and went back to the truck and talked to the driver. He returned a minute later and said, "Yeah, I meant two-by-fours."

"Alright. How long do you need them?"

The customer paused for a minute and said, "I'd better go check." After awhile, the customer returned to the office and said, "A long time. We're gonna build a house."

Groan!!!!

Here's one of the cam pictures running now -- over my backyard fence. ....Edit: now from lone pine!



Had a blurry picture issue earlier. Experimentation helped show that a polarizer lens was causing the trouble.

Still need to run the second camera test.

In the original shot, now replaced, you can almost see our footprints in the snow on Thor's summit plateau.

Thor Peak, 12 June

Jay's pictures

And, I know Steve took a bunch, and Pam and Gary.

That looks like a fun group Bob! I bet Gary had you guys either cracking up or pumped up (or both) the entire way - although it seems wifey-pooh is a more than a match for him in the class 3 stuff. Appears you went up the MR/North Fork to Thor, then looped back to the MT on the descent?

Great album, great time - thanks for sharing!

I just kept my mouth shut and listened everytime Bob spoke. I only asked one question.

Wifey-pooh had foot issues before the hike and I had concerns for her safety...she hung in there like a trooper...never complained...I got me one very tough wifey-pooh...

I am very proud of her!grin

More to follow...

Oh, and one more thing...

We all...

Had fun! grin grin grin grin grin

I sure want to thank Gary and Pam and Dave for ALL their help. This project would not have been possible with out the participation from each and every one! Pam was able to donate 23 computers and a server to Lone Pine High School. In turn, the high school is allowing us use of two of the computers to serve the web cam process.

Dave and the LPHS IT guy worked hard to get the computers up and running (they had been wiped squeaky clean... would not even boot!) Gary and Dave did all sorts of handyman work getting wiring installed and camera brackets installed.

The second web cam in Independence needs a little work -- internet connection and firewall tweaking -- and it will be on line as well.

And we should be getting a daily video of the prior day's pictures soon!

Bob R and Jay came up and accompanied/guided us on a hike up Thor via the "Secret" route, and down via the Mirror Lake breaks. (At the end, my feet were killing me, since I haven't hiked in months.) It was a Thor first for three of us, and even my first north side North Fork ascent to LBSL, too.

I have lots of pictures to post, from the camera installations AND the hike. So much to do, so little time.

Oh, and wagga and I enjoyed pizza at the WND (Whoah Nellie Deli) in Lee Vining. The live band was a great final touch.
