Happy Birthday Eric! | High Sierra Topix  

Happy Birthday Eric!

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.

Thanks, guys. Yes, the wife and I are going skydiving on Saturday and then spending some time in and around Stanislaus NF.

Another year Mark and I'll have crossed to that side of the hill. Hard to believe I started this website when I was fresh out of college, penniless and splitting time between backpacking the Sierra and chasing girls around Europe.

Happy Birthday Eric! No such thing as a hill, life gets only as good as we make it and allow it to be, it ain't
all about the mighty greenback either, IMO.

"Can you read, Pooh?" Owl asked a little anxiously. So Owl wrote, and this is what he wrote:
HIPY PAPY BTHUTHDTH THUTHDA BTHUTHDY.
Pooh looked on admiringly.
"I'm just saying `A Happy Birthday'," said Owl carelessly.
"It's a nice long one," said Pooh, very much impressed.
"Well, actually, of course, I'm saying `A Very Happy Birthday with Love from Pooh'. Naturally it takes a good deal of pencil to say a long thing like that."

I'm hoping you and your wife actually landed back on Earth and didn't mysteriously end up missing the target. :)

Happy Bday!

Happy Birthday, Eric. One may have to redefine where the crest of the hill is, in fact.

John,

"Over the hill" is at the point when you no longer consider doing some of the things you didn't think twice about doing when you were younger. For me it was realizing that hiking from Tuolume meadows to Virginia Canyon in a day was not something I would do any more. Though in 1980 I did it starting about noon and carrying 65 lbs because I was beginning a 3 week trip with no resupply. Last summer when in Mammoth I gazed up at the Bloody Mountain Couloir and the chutes on Dragontail and realized that they were now beyond my current skiing prowess. I don't think there is a particular age and we all age differently.
