Bouldering in Pine Creek Canyon
1:31 pm pdt
I got a little too busy playin' secret-agent mad scientist this weekend, so I didn't get as
much exercise as I should. It is really time to get up in the mountains, but there have been some afternoon storm
patterns lately. Hopefully, I'll motivate next week! Milo was ready for a break from song writing and cactus farming,
so we went bouldering up canyon at the same spot we went last Wednesday. It is a nice spot
close to the road, good for lazy minimalist climbing daze....
We took a few photos, here is one Milo took of Rey takin' a picture of me.....

Boulderin' With the Band
9:25 pm pdt
Milo and Casey rousted me after work today and we went up canyon and scrambled around and
looked at a few boulder problems just up from the Pratt's Crack Area. Good thing, I have been too much work and not
enough goofin' off lately.
Here is 2/3 of the Tungsten City Band in Pine Creek Canyon bouldering this evening:
This is your beloved hero posing like the shamless spectacle he is...
800+ hits at wormspew last week, thanks for the attention!

Thistles and Huecos
1:47 pm pdt This morning, Milo and Rey and I went 4-wheelin' up on
the Coyote Warp to look at some virgin crag. We found some nice huecos to play with, and some owls and big bugs to marvel
at. I got hungry, so I stopped to eat some thistle buds [taste like artichokes!].......

Fresh New UFO Photo!
6:12 pm pdt
A trusted aquaintence of mine sent me these pics. They were taken at 12:28 pm,
Sunday June 13, near the summit of Funk Mountain, north of the town of Conconully, WA. The object was not noticed untill
the photos were examined later. The skyline is Starvation, Little Granite, and Muckamuck mountains.
The photos were taken only a few seconds apart. The Seattle UFO center and me think it is probably a bird [iyam sayin'
redtailed hawk]. But I got to play with my photoshop program!
photo #1. The Object Approaches!
photo #2: The Object has dropped below the skyline....
....and take a look when we enlarge it 100x!
Comments? Anyone care to go to my Forum on the Links page and post an opinion?

It is so nice out today, but my truck needs fixing, so iyam hangin' out.
Any day now I outta get a jones on to get into the high country and climb an arete. I know a couple pretty girls
up in Toulumne, too.....
In my forum, McCall and I are working on some current manifestations of the hyperdimensional
scaffolding, ya know, the invisible self devouring serpent that that holds the dimensions apart. Or whatever....
Really, we are examing the interplay between truth and myth, in the manifestations of anomalous experience
[if you want this to make any sense at all, it is up to the reader to keep up to speed.....]
This morning I crept around in the sticks up on Gable Creek, spying on inscects and
talking quietly with birds. I took this pretty picture of some beavertail cactus with Pine Creek Pass in the background.......

Tuff Rock Festival Kicks Ass...
12:54 pm pdt
The 2004 Tuff Rock Music Festival at Mill Creek Station was a huge sucess! An
official final count of 550 + makes it the largest event of it's nature in this area. A variety of funky grooves were
displayed this year, from Celtic-Hawaian "Y'all "ternative" of Chasin' the Train, to the Tribal New-Grass of Blue Turtle Seduction.
The Lymbic System layed down a funky dance groove with attitude, while our own Tungsten City Band tried out a furious batch
of new brewed material. The Techno Carnival Ska of Delta Novae kept us all dancin into the night. See if you can
spot me in this pic-

with your body and mind, or if you are not sure, or if you are unwilling to provide the commitment, then you should probably
stick with sport climbing and such. To the mountain ecosystem, you are only a rich supply of nutrients, so step carefully!
