The time has come...

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.

The time has come...

Postby Randonnee » Tue Jul 24, 2007 2:09 pm

To let you all know that I am moving on to explore other mountains. :eek:

My employer says I must leave our beautiful Sierra Nevada. :crybaby:

My position will be located in the Denver area, a majority of my free time will be spent becoming reaquainted with the Rockies. These are the mountains where I learned my mountaineering skills so there is some feeling of returning to a former home. However the Sierra has become my home and it will be missed. :(

I am not going to say good-bye as I plan to check in with my friends here on Topix from time to time, and return to the High Sierra when time permits.

Thank you all for sharing good times and happy trails with me :D

Harry,

You’ll be going to another nice area. Mooses (used to post here) left for CO and has been on some cool trips. He sends trip links once in awhile. It was nice seeing you in the Sierra, and I‘m sure we’ll see you around. Or maybe we’ll look you up if we go your way. I haven’t climbed any mountains in the area. But I climbed something at A-Basin and snowboarded down. Good luck with your new job, and hiking/skiing in CO!

Let us know how it is there!

Harry, good luck in Denver! You've got a lot of terrain to explore over there in the Rockies. You must check out a mountain range I hear a lot about and supposedly very similar to the Sierra - the Wind River Range in Wyoming - a place I've been dying to visit for years (I'm guessing this isn't too far from Denver ;) ). You be sure to report back to us here and there.

As snowy mentioned, Mooses now live in Colorado. I think EricJLee Also relocated to there as well.

Thanks for the support!

Mike -- I am looking forward to the day I return to make a trip with you. There is spring I would like to find :D

Shawn -- I'm not sure I would call my job great, but I have been analyzing rockets for so long I can't do anything else. :crybaby:

Cori -- What can I say, it has been great. Let me know when you are coming my way and we will plan something. :)

trailblazer -- The WRR is a fair distance from Denver, but I do agree with you I would love to spend some time there. :cool:

Mooses and EricJ -- If you are out there let me know, I will be looking for partners in crime. :evil:

Hey, more connections in Colorado. I have a brother and sis-in-law, nephew and his recently expanded family. Nephew is in the Denver area, my brother recently from Denver. They do stuff on 4 wheels not 2 feet.

Enjoy the mountains, on my list to go to someday.
Piece of cake.

Best wishes in Colorado. Thanks for contributing to the board here. I am glad you weren't transferred to a flatland area--that would have really been a bummer.

Cheers,

John
