“I dunno, the way she was calling... no DEMANDING him to stand beside her...
she wanted to rub something!”
“face it you jealous bastards, chicks dig bald guys.”
“Yeah, thats it!”
well, they DO! (don't they?)
“and Bobo... I saw what you were talking about with the Slide group photo. PERV!! You must have been thinking about Miss Blowup when that was taken.”
My Little Friend, LOL!
“Wha??? That was just my water hose and bite-me valve!
“I think somebody said they wanted to drop a Blow-Up doll on Baghdad....
Beats the hell out of a suitcase bomb.”
is that a bite me valve in your pocket or.........
“Ummmm Bobo? Did you forget that you are now shooting digital? Where's your dang pics?”
“I'm uploading right now. What a PIA!!! I have all the pics saved in High-Res mode but I needed to "save as" all pics in lower res so they upload faster into webshots from my dial-up.
There's gotta be an easier way....”
“Yeah, it's called cable or DSL. ;o)
All my pics are high res, but for Webshots, I resize them to wallpaper size 1024 x 768, or vice versa for portraits. Generally, before they go to Webshots, they are between 300 and 600kb. After Webshots scrunches them, they are around 100-200kb.
Even with DSL, the uploading is sluggish. I hit the button and go do other things.”
Wow Bobo. You did a wonderful job of capturing the whole trip. You shot everything! Even the dang road walk. I didn't know you ran into a porc on Wittenburg. Cool!
The sunset pics were great. No wonder you took your time getting to camp. The "looking down" pic with your boots is very cool, and I cracked up over your "alone again" pic. Well done Mister Bobo!”
“Great photos Bobo. Glad to see you managed to get away from that attack chipmunk.”
“Fantastic pics Capn Bobo!
Loved the trip report. Looks like a great time was had by all. Glad ya'll didn't come home with info on what they did with that doll. This thread title was frightening enough, thank you. ;)”
“Great pictures and great trip reports! Sounds like you all had an awesome time! :)”
“A blow-up doll?! What the…?
This thread title isn’t among the genre I’d normally be curious about, and it took me a few days to discover it’s “other” content. What, are you people having some kind of competition like … Who can make the most skewed thread title and still somehow relate it to the topic?! :-)
That Pennsyhiker dude seems to have propensity for getting himself involved with search posies, eh?! (re. Old Loggers Path, 2002)
Enjoyed the trip reports …especially Fritz’s creative approach to telling us about those dramatic first six minutes. John Burroughs would be proud of you, Fritz! Oh… and that’s the Ashokan Reservoir (A-S-H-O-K-A-N). I figured that large black animal-like creature would end up being a BoboBeast!
LtHiker: next time you’re in the Cornell-Slide col, if you want water clearer than Pennsy’s mud puddle, drop down from the col about 1/8 mile to the south where the stream headwaters begin.
I’ll check out the pics, Day 2 of lumberzac’ report and other comments later. Glad everyone survived the steep, rough, blackfly-ridden terrain. John Burroughs himself would be proud of all youans!”
“Nice pictures, Mr. Bobo -- complete with your feet at the ledge. Looks like you hung around up there for quite a while on Sunday. I hope the rain didn't make the rocks too slick on the way back down...”
“Sorry about the thread title, Marion...it really is "un-Fritz-like."
Don't know what came over me...
“Great pics, Bobo! Same with all of yours. Brings back really awsome memories. I love that loop! Glad you guys had fun. Bastards.”
“Nice trip report and pictures. The weather looks like it was nice too.”
“what? this is a trip report? I didn't open it because I thought it was...well...NOT a trip report. Okay, i'll read it, but not now. Tomorrow. :(”
“I just realized something by looking at Bob's pictures. Did we forget to tell you about the short cut?”
“"I think somebody said they wanted to drop a Blow-Up doll on Baghdad....
Beats the hell out of a suitcase bomb."
yeah i think that could turn out to be a WMD...ever see any women over there?? i bet if you drop one in the street they would kill each other over the damn thing...”
“Hey....saw you on the bridge this morning on the way to work. The lady sitting in the passenger seat almost looked real. LMAO !!!!!!!
Great pics and reports. Funny stuff!!”
“Y'all know Roxy Music's song of a torured affair with a blow up doll?
In every dream home a heartache
And every step I take
Takes me further from heaven
Is there a heaven?
I`d like to think so
Standards of living
They´re rising daily
But home oh sweet home
It´s only a saying
From bell push to faucet
In smart town apartment
The cottage is pretty
The main house a palace
But what goes on
What to do there
Better pray there
Open plan living
Bungalow ranch style
All of it’s comforts
Seem so essential
I bought you mail order
My plain wrapper baby
Your skin is like vinyl
The perfect companion
You float my new pool
De luxe and delightful
My role is to serve you
Can´t throw you away now
Immortal and life size
My breath is inside you
I´ll dress you up daily
And keep you till death sighs
I blew up your body
But you blew my mind
Oh those heartaches”
“lol yeah it cut out all of those stone steps on the way down. Of Course you had to ignore the no treaspassing signs and the beware of dog signs. The Ranger at Woodland Vally told me that it is actually a conservation easment and that the property owner is just an a-hole.”
“LOL Ped! If those guys would have started singing that, it would have brought "freaky" to a whole new level.
LOL Jersey boy! Hey, you know I have that special passenger just so I can use the express commuter lane.
Even though we were told it was ok to take that easement trail, it was kinda spooky walking past all those signs. I think I'll take the scenic route next time.”
ya know the only reason I agreed to take the short cut was mom.”
“You guys bailed out on the quarter-mile rock ladder?!? That was what made the otherwise all-downhill hike interesting. Boooooo.....
I gotta tell ya though, it just started raining as I got there, and those rocks can get really treacherous when wet...”
“stone steps on the way down? The trail I took, they went UP! It seems even when you are heading down in the Catskills, you gotta go up!
LOL @ Pennsy! I hope your Mom had a great day! We know you retired early on Saturday night to finish your Mother's Day card in the privacy of your tent. Now I understand why you were picking dried macaroni out of Fritz's dinner pack, but did you actually hike in a container of Elmer's glue?”
“Lol didn't you have sopme to loan him? I thought you had everything in that pack.”

“It looks more like "four men in need of a blow up doll", lol!”
“buddha, come here, lemme he high five ya!!
“That is just wrong!”
“So, how many drinks did you guys have to buy her first?”
“i remember that thread too,.. classic”
“Looks like you need to use your Thermarest patch kit for other purposes !”
“that pic was cracking me up all day

“So that was Mother's Day weekend, eight years ago....good times. :-)
