Positive Vibrations
The fifth bi-annual TuffRock Music Festival at the Warren Harding Memorial at Mill Creek Station was a huge success, thanx to Lars and Milo and everyone else that pitched in.  The crowd was a little smaller than expected, but the overall vibe was very positive, everyone seemed to notice the energy that grew as the night came. 
  All of the bands were top-notch,  but the headliner, Hamsa Lila [from the Bay Area] was a world class display of whirled world music, with an amazing blend of Indian and Islamic styles with latin carnival and regae beats, with the amazing female vocals- it was a powerful experience.  No one there was not dancing by the end of the night!
   The local Tungsten City Band whipped out a tight performance earlier that day.  Chris Canales got to finally play with his brand-new custom Quicksilver.  He had been waiting over a year for it, and it was finally delivered at the eleventh hour to his eager hands.  Check out this pic of the boys on stage at TuffRock.  This is a really novel venue, located in a historic tuff quarry, the stage is surrounded by little cliffs.

Disclaimer   The opinions offered here are mine.  I believe that sucsess on the peaks depends on trusting yourself.  If you do not have a trusting relationship 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!
