Show yourself!

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

On web shots they have a time delay format/security for the pictues. They will show here for a little bit then they will stop.
Here is the pictures of everybody that was having a problem posting picture as well as a link to your pictures. If you would like them removed please let me know

Since some of you were having problems posting picture.

Here is a how too.
If the picture is stored somewhere on the web...

To find the properties of your picture on the web.
Once it is posted to the web you will Right click on the picture and go to Properties, click on properties and copy the full link. It should look something like this:
http://www.bishopweb.com/photos/data/50 ... _Bride.jpg (Make sure that it shows .jpg at the end of the link).
You can use the bbcodes [img]and[/img]. While editing your post, click on the 'Img' button and enter the URL (http...), then click the 'Img*'. The end result is your picture URL preceded by [img]and%20ending%20with[/img] bbcodes. i.e. Image

Likewise, you can simply type the bbcodes into your post (as above) without clicking the 'Img' button.

Or, your can type the URL into your post... then select (highlight) it with your mouse and then click the 'Img' button to surround it with the neccessary bbcodes.

You can test the display of the picture using the 'Preview' button.

Since webshots has a lock on there system here is 2 free places to post picture.
Hope this helps

However, even when following the directions given, the shot still reverts to the red x afterwards. Being that my photos are posted on a personal webpage, with free access from the public, it should work according to what is being said, yada yada yada, etc...anyway, no worries at this time.

If they do not post well, links are what all will see.

Thanks, Jon! We'll get this figured out eventually. Oh hey.. nice fish! :)

The didjuredoo, skibum? That is so cool! What a great intrument! It has such a hauting, other-world quality to the sound. I've watched people play them, but only tried a couple times... the breathing technique is a challenge. I also play the harmonica - way easier to carry in a backpack :D.

Glad HST is back up!

Here's me on the summit of Mt. Williamson via the North Arete.

When I'm not climbing, I'm fishing.

This was me last year at Paradise Valley. Nothing like sitting around the fire with a Bacardi and Crystal Light concoction after a day of backpacking.

Last year while a thunderstorm kept 3 of us in our bags a couple hours.
There were squeeters and could not find my usual safari hat to deal with them. Of course the bloodsuckers prefer ones ears or back of the neck where a critter can't see. So cut out a piece from some old briefs aka underwear needled on some velcro and attached it to the back of another cap.
