Old shots

Postby Rambler » Apr Mon 06, 2020 11:38 am

As I mentioned on another thread I've been spending my virus time finishing up the digitization of my slide library.

Thought I'd share a few starting with these.

You had some great adventures back in the 70s. I did too but mine were all because my mind was altered.

Indeed. There wasn't one time when, upon reaching the bottom I didn't look up & think, "Well shit. Now I have to climb all the way back out of here".

Pack up that new truck & take your family out there as soon as you can.

Here's another. Escalante Rapids. If memory serves this is where you pick up the Hance Trail back to the rim. Oct. 1975

And another. This is from the Wilmore Wilderness in the Canadian Rockies north of Jasper Nat.l Park. Aug. 1974. That place kicked our asses - way too many bears for comfort.

You've took tons of cool photos of badass places back in the day. Can I ask why you don't travel as much anymore? and don't tell me age, that's not a reason lol

Keep the beaches and 5 star hotels, this is my idea of a vacation.

Dave - age certainly plays a role. Being at a different place in life (age, relative wealth, etc) comes into play. Back in the day I could travel in comfort on almost no $$. 'Comfort' equaled a good tent, decent sleeping bag, sleeping pad, etc. One year I traveled for around 7 months on $400 and that included gas.

These days while I still love camping I find that when I travel (especially with my wife) I prefer good B&Bs, nice restaurants, etc. Still love hiking, camping, fishing but it's just different.

Yeah - never was big on beaches (got my fill life guarding for the Chicago Park District) or cruises. We went on one to the Bahamas years ago. We both hated it. But my rambles back in the day weren't really a vacation. More like 2 - 3 years of bumming once the government told me they wouldn't need my services and I got done with school. I figured I had plenty of time to get serious and managed to put it off until after turning 30.

Thanks Badger. Mostly K 64 but some 25. Some Ektachrome too.

And here are a few more...

Postcard quality locations from when we could roam free before the lock down.
