    I guess it was "up" and all over the place.
    I mean Heaps in winter.
    The decision to do Telephone on December 25th instead of Heaps
    Then writing the story about it.
    That led the linking of my stories on that thread.
    Kuenn writes me to say he read my "Escape from Heaps" story
    He enjoyed it he said
    Enjoy that is, if you like nightmares.
    I realize that that trip had its 20h anniversary last spring
    Where has the time gone?
    I link the new story and send it to the old partners from that "20 year ago" misadventure
    And a few pictures come in this AM, from "way back when."


    First the story
    http://www.math.utah.edu/~sfolias/canyontales/ram/?i=heaps

    These first comments and all the pictures are from the "Vladman."


    "Failing is fun. Unless it isn’t.
    The first pic is the “I’d rather die than move” spot."

    Picture is in lower Gunsight. Jonny B in the back. The sprinkles came soon and the big tarp put up

    This picture is from Crossroads the next AM. It was incredibly slippery....But....I can't help but wonder what a dozen years of Freezefest experience would shift perspective, and how much. My recall was of conditions like I have not experienced afterward. But who knows? RUN AWAY, RUN AWAY

    The tangled "Pig." Note the PFD's lashed to the packs for floatation? makin it up as we went along

    Upper Phantom Valley after the 9F degree morning. When we got into Rt. Fork, we found icy conditions again.

    Ram, It appears that the pics are linked (URL) to your AOL account. You could save the pics (not the link) to your desktop and then reattach. Or, we could all just look at Jenny's repost...thanks Jenny.

    That's okay buddy, we're just thrilled you don't write in cuneiform. ;)

    Dynamic rope and lots of it. 10mm if i recall. No specialized gear. No sticky rubber. No idea what was in there. Mostly no idea what we were doing. BIG! Way too BIG packs. We planned it as a 3 day trip.
