I don't think SP is dying, just a little low profile right now.

Well, I just did a new TR to get things going on for us, at least a good reading I can give you.
And I still have dozens of mountain pages to do, but not for now...

Seriously though, thanks for sharing an adventure. Josh posted some fun ones the past few weeks as well. For the sake of my wife and kids, I try to keep my adventures on the tame side lately, but sometime I really ought to do more than make quick mention of unexpected excitement in summit logs and forum posts. Whether making much noise about it, or not, the audience here relates to and appreciates situations in the mountains more than the average person. Maybe first up should be my recent daytrip to the summit of Shasta. I've got mint condition ice axe and crampons for sale 'cus I decided to just run to the top barefoot and shirtless and glissade down. 3 hours round trip in December! If I can do that, I figure I won't need them anywhere else I plan to go. I was considering going for this guys record, but once was enough and I didn't want to miss Christmas dinner: http://pweb.jps.net/~prichins/shastarw.htm

The scary part is that's actually Joe Biden's brain, which explains a lot. :wink:

Scary? You could at least thank him. He was offering it to you so you can save SP. We need more blowhards lately. :wink:

Here are a couple more nice predictions:

Here's to SP and any of its members facing tough circumstances surviving as tenaciously as the honey badger!

"Seems to be such sadness in each place I go ..

The people laugh and still I just wouldn't know ..
Never stop to see who's there,
Once I used to care,
But the sun don't shine anymore ..."



Does not this dude look a-lot like Justin Bieber ?

The lyrics combined with a Bieber reference remind me of this:

Geez, I was starting to worry about you until I got to the end of your post.

Just in case, here's some Biebster to cheer you up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcTLJ692F70

I'll throw in some Gaga for good measure. I think she's trying to save the California wolf from pop star politicians. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhTd4_Ids80

I don't know how anyone can be sad with Marmaduke annoying the elitists and all.

Marmaduke, you are one of the honey badgers of the forums. Keeping threads that are of little or no value, besides entertainment, alive, even when faced with ongoing criticism, is what matters most to the ongoing success of SP. Therefore, you are indeed one of its greatest saviors. :wink:

As for me, if I'm in the forums too much, regardless of quality of discussions, I start to feel like the honey badger in the part at the end when he's recovering from the snake venom...then I know it is time to give the computer more rest again for awhile and devote more time to chores, parenting, necessary reading, hiking, etc.

Sean, the latter part of your post is why I'm staying away from "off-route". Spending too much time there............amongst a bunch of hypocrits. I can come over here to the front page and get beat up and be rediculed from the real climbers. It's a much more enjoyable experience.

Seems wise, but rather than looking to any SP forums for daily sustenance, one might consider looking to Adam Lambert's American Idol run for life's most important lessons. Every song had such deep meaning and entertainment, but alas it was not his time to win yet. If "Tracks of My Tears," isn't a perfect metaphor for depressed entertainers out there, perhaps one of his many other performances will speak volumes on this day or some other:

Early on he was singing this.



Later it was this.



In the end it was this, with the help of many friends, including the popular straight guy who beat him out for the coveted crown:
