Welcome Obiwan Canoli | High Sierra Topix  

Welcome Obiwan Canoli

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.

Why Flip.. You make me blush.
Maybe we could do a Reunionaplooza - Geezer hike. Mind you not everyone is a geezer yet - just speaking for myself.

....Uh...... I forgot - We could do it like the "old days" when we did the Trail Talk hikes.
Even though we don't have as much completely flat space available in the yard as we used to, everybody could camp out in the yard the night before and have a Bar-bque. We still have loads of parking!

I like that idea, Mel. And thanks for the suggested venues... Gonna study my maps, and am excited to get something together, therapy permitting... or should I say recovery?

In any event, I did not post anything here, but if you think it would reel in some who've moved on from TT, then happy to do so...

You bet, Darlin"!
Hey, I heard you say you'd heard from OldTimer? Is he lurking around here, somewhere?
HEY, OLDTIMER! ARE YOU OUT THERE?!
Let's get this party started!!

As usual, Mel forgets to add:
See if anybody can scare up Solitary Hiker too. I hear he's been spotted around here on occasion.
We could also invite anyone else who we know from TOPIX by sight or reputation.
ERIC (you listening, ERIC ?), one of our friendly moderators has stayed here at the house in the past, and Snownympth who I just ran into recently, would be most welcome.
That is, if they were so inclined.
I'd be happy to have to have the gang around again.

Obi, Dear....
I found my way back into TT and saw all the posts. Good Work! I added one, very long one, of my own trying to give a "short" rundown of my disappearance, and suggesting a plan to EVERYone for our Reunion-geezer-Palooza, next summer.
It was SO nice to see so many people remember me in a - fond - way.
Boy, you and I have some planning to do. Break out your canning jars, I'm looking forward to some of your great blackberry jam!

I would love to join the group hike! I don't backpack anymore, but I could hike in for the day and hike out at night. :D

SN..
Didn't know you weren't backpacking anymore?
I had another idea for a base camp venue for the get together (other than Reds'). North Lake would always be nice. Good fishing lake (North Lake itself) near the campground, really nice campground at the trailhead (as I'm sure you've been there), and a relatively short hike to the lakes below Puite Pass.
Depending on Obi's condition next summer, and me with Joppa, I think even I could do that.

I do long day trips now. I carried a pack last week up Whitney, spent the night, and hiked out the next morning. My hips were swollen for 3 days. The pack was 26 lbs, and my back and hips reminded me why I don't do it anymore. But I can dayhike to wherever you all go. :D

Welcome Obi and Hello Flip,
Sol here. Just wanted to let you know that I do check in here periodically. Not so much at TT. It would be great to do a Sierra fishing trip. I have a not-so-new email address. PM me and let me know your email too. Obi have you talked to John of late?
