Adopt Weavers Needle page?

While cleaning out some really bad pages, I came across the page for Weavers Needle: http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock/150850/weavers-needle.html.

It is not the worst page ever, but it is a real disappointment for one of Arizona's most spectacular peaks. If you have climbed the peak and think you could do a nice job taking care of the page, let me know. The owner has been inactive for a long time. After you revamp the page, I can erase ...

Charleston or not...

I will be meeting my girl friend in Vegas this Friday and I've set aside Monday to get out and do something (solo). I was planing on Mount Charleston. The round trip milage is pretty high but in reading the SP page and the summit logs I get a lot of conflicting info. People are posting round trip times of like 6 hours and others seem to take 6 days. I assume it's a well ...

Spent nearly the entire evening splittin' wood out back behind the woodpile.

Sat down a spell with my corncob pipe, and spied this evil critter slithering directly towards me.
