Happi Bird-day Erin!

Frum ur buddee Chick-on!

Eyez guess spose to dooz like 2000 wurds. But dats alotta wurds from
dis bird. Someone said picture wurth 1000 so a video must be
like same or sumtin.

Here's our first trip in 2012. We been going pretty crazy since.




https://youtu.be/7KTXxhsNM8U

I did the math and since then... almost right at 200 trips with
700 days in the Sierra. Yes, we really are that crazy.
2019 was another stellar year. Another 100+ days easily... smiling smiley
It goes by fast. Let's continue to enjoy!

Truly enjoy the time we spend out in the mountains.
Thanks for helping and encouraging and willing to explore and
adventure and boat and watch TV and play games. And being so
easy going, even when your boat springs leak and you get upset.
And putting up with JKW and myself bickering somemost of the time.

Anywho. Yeah, no really, we go almost every weekend and more so here's
won from this year. It's pretty long.. so sorry if your doze off. smiling smiley

Was gonna make mashup of this year but so many trips it's hard ..
and there was puzzling to be done...

Really looking forward to the roaring 20s! Am hoping we can continue
the great progress we all made on SEKI Trail Quest this year and
get JKW the "been there" mug. tongue sticking out smiley
Dang, what did the lady say at Kern Ranger Station?
"O... you are red lining the park?" Something like that.
I liked the saying but I probably got it wrong.

Of course Yosemite is Better (tm). so there's always more to explore.

Here's to a great road trip and try not to eat too much pie.
Save me a slice!
Yum yum yum!

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday Basilpop!

Hope you guys are out enjoying the High Sierra! Hopefully you aren't having to deal with the bickering between ______ & ________!! (We still had a blast hanging with you folks even with those two bickering over the puzzle!)

Also thanks for all the trip planning assistance you have provided Ashley and I!

PS: Our definition of "shortcut" doesn't seem to match your guys definition...

Yes, we (I), really did carry the game in. It was a blast. Yeah, a bit crazy for sure.... but there's a lot of games that are
much smaller that are loads of fun for relaxing in the tent.
Blops favorite is Arboretum. Grinning Devil

Best Game Ever!

White gaiterz are Tyvek. They work just ok. Blop loves those too. tongue sticking out smiley

Enjoy your R2R2R2D2C3POnoUdidnt!

I apologize for the lateness of my post, but I’ve been running from one thing to the next these past few days!

What can I say that I haven’t said before...?

I cannot express my gratitude and love enough to you, Basilbop, for all the years of support, love and adventure we have shared! I’ve been through a lot and you have been there for me through it all! For that alone, I am forever thankful! Happy Birthday!!!

To you and Chick-On, so many thanks for helping me get through a litany of injuries and ailments, especially these past couple of years! I am so happy you two enjoy the wilderness so much in the way you do! It is an absolute joy to be around you two as we continue to experience and learn more about this gorgeous area!

To KevinD, so glad we were finally able to meet you and Ashley over Thanksgiving! I do hope we have more opportunities in the future!! Well, I know we will have President’s Day, at least!!! I hope!! Knock on wood!

Happy Birthday Basilbop
Thank you Chick-on for the videos. Especially love the Kern River-Shepards Pass video. Looks like a lot of fun has been had.
I've been working through a Washington State PCT obsession for the last few years- so
not much to post on this site. I still stop by from time to time to see what's up.
Thank you all!
