That would be an excellent theme for an album named so, where eveyone should put vintage pictures with faded colours, where we all looked so unprepared for our first mountain expeditions :)

Why are you guys talking about Rick’s pee pee and being nude? Aren’t there like a gazillion sexy SP girls on this site we could be talking about?

No. They are unattractive and uninteresting.

Can't say that I am that old to begin with, but you wouldn't think that with the gear I had back when I first started!

I hate to see such a fun topic fade away...

Here's an old pic of me during a trip up George Creek in 1976:

As you can see, I was really into the latest gear. I'm a little embarrassed to point out the jug of Red Mountain hanging from the tree and my hash oil pipe on the ground near my (other) hat. No wonder I couldn't find my way back to the trailhead...

Okay, here's a real picture of me demonstrating a very newly acquired ice ax technique near Kaweah Gap, 1977:

Winter trip to the Cairngorms. My first "expedition". A tough trip, for tough kids. Snowed in, -12C and a sick teacher. Two weeks through the mountains, where my weight dropped from 7 stone to 6 1/2.

I have some B & W photos hanging on my wall of myself that were taken by Colin Haley for a high school photography class. The assignment was to take photos in the style of a favorite photographer - he chose Gordon Whiltse. He took photos of me leading various cracks while he hung on rappel. The photos are rough as he developed them himself, but his talent as a photographer was evident even then. Sometime I'll get around to taking them out of the frame, scanning them, and posting them here.
