Update: Thread merged.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Going up the Half Dome cables, three gentlemen were traveling above, very slowly, hogging the cables, making it impossible for anyone to pass.
A Ranger somehow got by them, coming down, and we asked him if he could do anything about the clog above.
He said, "They are all blind!"
One guy waiting patiently with us said, "Amazing, they should make a TV show about them." Another said, "Impressive - maybe someone could use them as an example, a magnet for collecting contributions for all other blind individuals."

I added, "Why don't they do the cables at night?"

I don't recall the brand, but the extra dark photo grey I had sucked. After 2 years, they became crackly like somebody did a lousy do it yourself window tint film over them. La Caveat Emptor.

I had the lasik procedure in 2001 and my results were fantastic, no complications, etc. However, after about 9-10 years my nearsightedness began creeping back, but not to the original extent. Alas, I now need reading glasses, too. These days on the trail I take two pairs of glasses, both lightweight wire-rim with progressive lens. No problems other than I hate wearing glasses. I'd love to have a lasik procedure touch-up. The taste of freedom it provided was terrific, especially if you are a sports and outdoors type person.

I think you should get a monocle! Half the weight and going back in style!
