The cables are still not up. June 13. Last year it was June 16. And still we wait. Sorry to all who had permits for before this date. Like me. You willget a refund. So I’ve been up to Glacier Point and Yosemite Falls instead. Nice – very nice. As seen in yesterday’s blog pix, there is just too much snow to get up Sub Dome safely. Believe me, the park does not like to delay the season. It will be a major headache off them once the cables are up and running.
To show you that the blog exchange thread is worth trying…this came in from Donald A. and the permits were snapped up quickly. It pays to check frequently:
We have 4 permits for July 4 and would like someone to use them. Thank you for making this possible!
If you have not gotten your motivational talisman yet – consider ordering one of my custom “I made it to the top” TShirts. Pin it up on your wall to keep you training towards your goal. Go to my website STORE. Heads up though. I will be on another Carpe Diem quest soon. Leaving Wednesday for the other “Y” park – Yellowstone. This time with 5 other Hardy Boys on Harleys. The weather up north is even worse than here in San Jose-by-the-sea. Below freezing overnight. Yikes. I’m packing my long johns. Because I’ll be out for 2 weeks the blog will be done at night at Motel 7. Hang with me if I am late. But also if you DO want a TShirt – and why not – I need your orders by COB Tuesday so I can get them into priority US Mail. Check the website for sizes and styles. See front and back side by side.
I have a lot of “Laffing Mr Bones” in Small and plain in XL. All shirts are 4-color and have the Josiah Whitney quote on back. Yes we are trodding all over the top of Half Dome.
And still we wait
