I guess it does look a little old fashioned now... I was just born in 1969...

Re: wow...

That is what bites sometimes. How'd I get so old so fast. Dang. When I see a USGS benchmark on a peak that says 1940 on it, I feel a strange kinship. Note the wooden iceaxe and the homemade harness. We'd make diaper slings and use them for our harnesses. Yeah, the good old days.

Re: wow...

Re: wow...

Actually, TIME flies whether you're having fun
or not, so you ought to be having fun.

Won't be long before the old man in the red
suit slides down the chimney ...

Re: wow...

I won't complain. Its funny that time hasn't slowed me down like most the guys I know at my same age. So far I don't take any med's of any kind, something I am very thankful for and attribute to my outdoor hiking/climbing efforts. Stay active, that is the key.

But, chestnuts roasting on an open fire never
tasted so good, especially when eaten with a
large batch of greasy french fries...

We know what you're talking about, Dean.
You DO look very fit and lean in this picture.

You look like a stud in this picture, Dean! :-)

Re: Stud!

I was serving in the U.S. Army as a captain in the dental corp when this pic was taken. I had a week of vacation and used it for my climb of Mt. Rainier. Definitely a poser shot however, but studly, I don't know. Thanks though. : )

Definitely posin'

I was in college at the time so I would vote "Studly"! Great shot and no doubt full of memories!

Re: Dean

And right now I have your name. Don't make me come into your store and kick you around it. Some might call me badass or some might call me candyass, which ever fits. Thanks Jim, have a great Christmas.
