There's been entirely too much IT talk on the forum lately.
It's that time and the weather is looking good. Fri 66, Sat 75, Sun 84, lows in the 40s
Be there or be Square.

So glad I don't recognize seasons or carry an iphone while I am climbing.

There may never be another Summer of Mud but it's moss and choss for me Jack  :yesnod: :thumbup: :crazy: :out: :prrr:

And while we are on the subject of mud loyalty, just a reminder if you haven't already marked your calendars.
I reserved a prime group site last year for the MoM this April. Site 127.
We already talked about this last year but that is a long time - especially for those of us a bit long in the tooth.
It's the weekend of 4-20 Dude  :lol: :yesnod: :thumbup: :ihih: :crazy:

Well, if no one else is going to state the obvious, that was a great, great job by the PCAD committee.

The PCAD is meant to get things done. And that happened. It's supposed to have fun elements. That definitely happened. Just the right amount of each. Thanks to great planning and hard work.

Well done.

One man's dirty skivvies is another man's booty. 
The "best" climber is the one having the most fun.

I'll have to place some "easter eggs" for next year's clean-up.

Maybe an Abalone shell or two, fake Spanish doubloons and some other random items I can think of...like that can of peanut brittle that you open and snakes jump out at you....

I take it no oyster shells were found this year?
