    Great seeing the additional pics Erich. Was waiting each day this week for the new FB posts after the first Half Dome summit shot. Can't wait to see the rest. Sure wish I'd been there - but to the comments above:

    On the Visor - would have keeled over from fright, fallen off the edge and died.

    On descending the cables in rain and hail - see above.

    Glad you made it back in one piece and that you, the fleece and your little blue friend had such an apparently awesome time!

    I've got tons of stuff to edit, but as soon as I do I'll let everyone know. I started trying to do a little podcast type video that I'll need to edit together.

    I knew I've always been somewhat afraid of height and I really had to focus to get that far out on the Visor. My buddy's went out to the end. I ended up finding out that's I'm actually VERY MUCH afraid of heights. After stepping out on the Visor we started getting some rain and needed to get on the cables quickly, or have to sit on top until the rain passed. But... more on all that later.

    It's all yours Brad! You just have to join the SAR team to come out and get it!

    Incredible pictures Erich. I was just showing my wife the pics. on F/B and told her some day I would love to go there and try the cable climb. well she laughed @ me and said I got scared just trying to shinle the roof on my shed (but thats another embarising story) so how the heck woud I do that. As for the visor HELL NO. I also probably would have died there if not on the cables.
    As for the fleece Brad you already have one so I want to claim it.
    Gald you had a great time Erich and came back safe with your buddies and look forward to your report and pics.

    Speaking of fleece, mine went waterskiing this morning. A bit of a chill in the air - add a nice warm fleece in between ski runs - and I was nice and warm.

    Way to go Blue Dog!

    I climbed the Matterhorn last Saturday! At least that's what we call Chocorua.

    Very cool KD!

    Pic reminds me... there's a chance the 'original Blue Dog' might make it up to STP this year. Might need Emma to show her the ropes! (Or is that rocks?)

    My fleece has been missing in action for prolonged periods....two teenagers in the house. I am not entirely clear where it has been, but it seems to have survived. I guess I'll have to get another one this year, not that I'll get to wear it; maybe threes a charm

    Mine will at at the dinner after STP09. I am hoping we can get a red one this year. But, this has been an awesome thing. Rain, sleet, snow, wind - it works in all of them. I have even worn it on pretty hot days when taking pictures to give me extra pockets to hold things as I am shooting. I have never seen it get "wet". A wonderful jacket!
