All the Eastside locals know that the RCLR Pies are far better and half the price of those found at the TPR .

Made by locals for the Locals and not the Tourist Buses passing through 120.

The Local Ass.

Except for the fact that you are in repose at nearly 10,000 feet, which is great for the acclimitization at night.

And as far as "bang for the buck" goes, TPR isn't a charity. I have too many sentimental attachments to the place, especially the older cabins, to object. Lee Vining may have other, cheaper, rooms for the evening, but I don't think there's much comparison.

Julia and her team have always done a tremendous job of making me and my family feel welcome. I hadn't heard that they were having a tough time getting set up this season, but I hope they can open soon.

Maybe the downtime will give them an opportunity to modernize the website.

I, too, have great memories of coming out of the backcountry for days with my father and eating the meat loaf (not on the menu anymore, I think) and the pie, and I never presumed that they were a charity.

I just have a very different sense of the worth of things now that I'm in my early 40s, my father doesn't backpack/climb anymore and I've seen the other options available.

Don't forget that DROID now. Gotta have the constant connection to all them business contacts and people back in the city.

Folks call it a vacation I believe....

It's not a vacation if I don't sleep outside? Not sure how well that goes over, next time I try to take the family skiing...

And what's a droid?
