An unexpected sighting of an Alpinist’s Alphabet in the flagship #Seattle @REI made my afternoon—right up there with #Nirvana and @amesbros. Stoked. (Available over at @myoutdooralphabet, BTW)

0140 Robin Hood probably rode a Raleigh. Also, I think those screws are aftermarket.

Playing hooky before the snow shows up? Totally worth it.

#FredBeckey passed away today in his sleep at the age of 94. I was fortunate enough to cross paths with him a few times—never in the mountains, but always in a memorable, quintessentially Fred kind of way.
...
The first time was in the North Bend Denny’s back in the early 2000’s. I had my son in my arms and recognized him right away, with his notebooks and papers all over the table. Like a total fanboy, I walked up and said “Mr. Beckey?”, about 5 times.
...
He never even looked up. I looked over at my wife and kind of laughed and kept walking, having just been snubbed by my first mountain hero. I laughed out loud as we walked to the car, passing the obvious Subaru, filled with papers and gear and packs and other essential dirtbag detritus. I knew he was hard of hearing, so I didn’t feel too badly as it just made for a better story and I was still a little giddy from just seeing this guy whose life’s work had made such an impact on mine.
...
The other times were at various slideshows and in Seattle gear shops, always with Fred in the middle of the action. He signed a few of my guide books and smiled, even more deaf than our first meeting, but still such a presence.
...
Rest In Peace, Fred. Thanks for the routes and the ubiquitous #obviousgully...

Be careful handing your son a camera—you never know what you’ll get back. Happy weekend.

Fast and loose. Just trying to avoid letting perfection prevent progress.
