Timm, I follow your employer on Instagram and it looks like your VW is “Instagram Famous”!

Now we can all say we knew you before you got big.

Howdy!

It's great being a mid-size fish in a small puddle.

There used to be a lot of folks who called me "Timmy". You don't see them around anymore.

Our internet was down for a bit over three days, so I had a mandatory break from my internet addiction. The shakes are now under control and it looks like I'll make a full recovery.

Andy: How the hell do you find that viddy? When I search for it on Vimeo (horrible search feature), all I get is a dozen hits for a rap artist named Timmy T.

As for what's in the Coleman picnic jug, well.... I'll just leave that up to your imaginations!

Hey! I wanted to go to Woodstock--more than willin' to hitchhike from Oregon to NY--but mom wouldn't let me. Felt pretty mature for 9 years old.

BTW: The Gunhippie tag was given me by others hereabouts. Anyone with hair long enough to cover one's ears--and visible facial hair--in Eastern Oregon--or anywhere in the Inland Empire--was tagged a Hippie regardless. Or we were just called "Jesus". All in good humor, like the bar fights. I had guns, and was declared a Hippie, so why fight it?

I happened to be in that area of upstate NY on a Boy scout camping trip the weekend of Woodstock. Took forever to get home.

Woodstock was either a wonderful gathering of young people trying to change the world, or a bunch of soggy kids living in squalid conditions at an outdoor rock concert. Take your pick. Remember that big picture on the album jacket that showed a guy and his girlfriend standing in a sea of people with a blanket wrapped around them? I saw a documentary a while back that reported they're still married.

Hi Timm.  Found this on YouTube

Yep, Martin, that was the pub about ten years ago. We now have fewer trees due to a little breeze a few years back that took out 24 aspens and willows, and the back bar now has 13 taps.

I have some history with the tram, too. Many years ago (mid '90s) while unemployed, I was forced into a job (ever been on unemployment? Unscrupulous employers have you over a barrelhead.) painting the towers that support the tramline. I was working en rappel, carrying a 5 gallon backpack sprayer full of battleship gray paint. We lugged a big gasoline generator all the way up that mountain to power the airless sprayer I used. I did this for $7/hr! That, plus a promise of a lifetime pass to the tram. Three years later, the "lifetime pass" was revoked. I'm pretty sure that was the last time the towers were painted.

But myself and friends had many a great spring/early summer ski trip from the top of Mt. Howard! There are two good runs and sometimes several short ones. East Pk (1,200 vert) is about a one-and-a-half hour hard hike from the tram terminal:

[1762937328_81c1001b08_o]

Charlie in the pics, my tracks on the left.

Easy (600 vert) is only about a half-hour hike, but we also hit it on the way back from East:

[1762088559_f247225d14_o]

It's called Easy because it's easy to get to, not easy to ski. This run is easily visible from one of the popular overlooks near the tram terminal, and we could often hear folks cheering us on.

The red/brown color is from a dust storm in MONGOLIA that pretty much coated all the late snow in the US West. I returned and skied these two runs a week later, and our tracks--which were clear of dust--stood a foot above the dirty snow. Hard to see in the pictures, but we were coated in mud up to the waist. The snow melted fast and early that year ('06), causing summer water shortages throughout the West.

Here's my old buddy Ken setting the pace up the mountain on another trip, sans dust:

 RIP, old friend!

Anyway, add up the $35 ticket for the tram, the full day of hiking, and it's about the most expensive lift ticket per run in the US!

Beers are available at the tram terminal, as is food, but both are astronomically expensive, so bring your own if you go. It's also 8,400' ASML at the top of the tram, so be ready for less air than at sea level--you can really hear the flatland videographer gasping for breath in that viddy!

If you enjoy alpine wildflowers, June is the month to go up the tram. Plenty of wildflower meadows within a few minute easy hike of the terminal.

Some good pictures Timm.   The ones of the trees down kinda reminds me of the Fourth of July of 1985.  Dad pulled the old boat (1965 Glastron tri-hull) to my uncle's place so we could go on the river (The Mississippi).  I drove my 69 Mustang (Darn I miss that car!) and mom rode with dad in his 72 Dodge camper special (with a topper on it).  Late that evening on the way home, dad pulled over and he and mom got in the Mustang with me...the truck was being blown up on 2 wheels by some very strong winds.  When we got back to town, power was out everywhere, and what usually would have been a 10 minute drive to the house took over an hour due to downed trees everywhere.  There had been a tornado and winds over 85mph.

The boat was 16 feet and rated for up to a 65HP outboard.  Some idiot had put a 110HP on it, hit a log, and pulled the transom out about 6 inches on one side, so it sank.  Dad bought the boat and trailer for $25, and we fixed the boat.  Dad found a 50HP Mercury, and we were off to the races.  That old tri-hull with 50 HP would easily walk away from a 16 foot v-hull with 65HP.

Have you seen the price of a lift ticket these days?  $35 per run is probably pretty standard.

$35, six hours hiking for about 2 minutes of skiing. Most resorts sell tickets for much more, but you can expect get at least a few hours of solid skiing in.

Summer back-country skiing is one of the silliest sports in the world--but I really enjoyed coming up with snappy replies to all the folks I'd pass on the trail who inevitably took in the skis on my backpack and asked "Are you going skiing?" "Well, no, but I got these at a yard sale and figured they'd look great on my pack."

Strangely, no one ever asked the far more sensible question: "Where are you going skiing?"

Timm, your pictures sure brought back some wonderful memories for me.  No late-season skiing for me but we used to do a lot of hiking and as you well know, there are not a whole lot of things in this world that are better than springtime in the mountains!
