View Full Version : A decade on LHC...

So...a decade and small change ago, I joined LHC (with a somewhat problematic introductory post) and never looked back.

The image I meant to post back then was this:
http://www.trolleypup.info/lhc/10-LHC-Anniv-03-WhiteMtn-lg.jpg
what I actually posted also had me sitting on something with the same mountain in the background and might be called artistic by charitable eyes. Anyway.

Around my anniversary date I took a midweek minivacation and did a bit of trailwork, and had a very leisurely time in camp.
http://www.trolleypup.info/lhc/10-LHC-Anniv-16-LimePtOverlook1-lg.jpg
Yes, I found a flat sand patch among the giant boulders!

Looking one way from camp:

and the other way, the next morning:
http://www.trolleypup.info/lhc/10-LHC-Anniv-16-LimePtOverlook3-lg.jpg

A sample of my hair in the sun. (http://www.trolleypup.info/lhc/10-LHC-Anniv-16-LimePtOverlook5-lg.jpg)

The obligatory length shot (head is tilted slightly downward, looking at my phone which is the remote for my camera)
http://www.trolleypup.info/lhc/10-LHC-Anniv-16-LimePtOverlook6-lg.jpg
This is a few dozen shots in, and the ends are getting piecey already.

Sitting on a rock, so you can see the background better:

A couple memories:

Kleis...

...and Dianayla

and food as hair adornment:

Wow, Trolleypup ! So many amazing pictures ! :thud:

I particularly love the very first one (with these wild flying strands), and the one with the bi-color rope braid (so beautiful !!). You definitely have an aesthetic eye ! :crush: I have seen your video too, and I have to add that I like the manly way you wear your hair and move with it. And yeah... this goaty is just the perfect finishing touch !! :p

Oh, and congrats on your 10th annivhairsary, of course !! :cheer: :cheer:

What are you sitting on in the first picture? The grommets/rivets are throwing me. Is it the top of a metal bus? (Your trolley?)

Happy 10th! :)

So are the boulder photos in the San Rafael Wilderness or environs? Maybe Pine Mountain in Ventura County?
Ventana Wilderness, there is a layered sandstone formation that runs for 20 miles SE/NW with variously spectacular formations like this all along it. The most accessible is the excitingly named "The Rocks" near Indians, west of Fort Hunter Liggett.

10 years, already? I remember that first post too. :silly:

Thanks...maybe I'll be able to get some pictures with Dianyla down at Tassajara this spring. Tassajara is in the bottom of the valley behind my dusk bun picture.

A trident would be too heavy to carry into camp, but I'll have a fiery marshmallow for you some time.

Coincidentally, I think of Dianyla as a Lorelei. Her photo album once had a picture to that effect.

We still try to do mermaid/merman poses whenever we meet near a body of water and find a suitable rock.
With long enough hair, those are poses that just cry out!

Congratulations!

May I ask, what's the story behind your custom title?
"Evil, not Bad" comes from my busdriver days. A Bad driver runs into stuff out of ignorance or lack of skill, an Evil driver does it on purpose to achieve an end, skillfully.
"(SB)" is Snugglebunnies, referring to Dianayla and me.

Hats off, trolleypup!!

Your mytical mane is an icon, and your sense of humour is always appreciated ;)

When did you start growing you hair -or has it always been legendariously long? Happy decaversary!! :toast:
Probably when I was 16 or so I noticed that longer hair pissed off my mom, so my teenage rebellion was growing my hair...then I figured out that I liked it long...it got trimmed from time to time until 1990 when I had my last major haircut (caused by chewing on a mouthful of pizza and hair). I was already past classic when I joined LHC.

Wow, Trolleypup ! So many amazing pictures ! :thud:

I particularly love the very first one (with these wild flying strands), and the one with the bi-color rope braid (so beautiful !!). You definitely have an aesthetic eye ! :crush: I have seen your video too, and I have to add that I like the manly way you wear your hair and move with it. And yeah... this goatee is just the perfect finishing touch !! :p

Oh, and congrats on your 10th annivhairsary, of course !! :cheer: :cheer:
The rope braid is the 2nd frame of a sequence of Dianayla and me walking away from each other and the rope unravelling...One of the Seattle meets, I believe. Many thanks!

Thanks for sharing, Trolleypup. It's fun to see a man enjoying his long hair. The scenery is spectacular!

What are you sitting on in the first picture? The grommets/rivets are throwing me. Is it the top of a metal bus? (Your trolley?)

Happy 10th! :)
The first picture is one of the best of my hair pictures, thanks to a timer and a gust of wind...I got lucky! I am sitting on the roof of the White Mountain summit hut (part of the White Mountain Biological Station), so 14,252'/4344m (plus the height of the building). I don't think this was the time I went up there and there was 4" of snow plastered to the SIDE of the building.

Better hair care, although I already had benign neglect down. Not single, thanks Dianyla! Improved ability to not voice my snarkiness at everyone all the time.

I don't get that very often, but the response is some combination of snarky, hostile, condescending, and dismissive. I never gave that sentiment much credit starting with my teen years in the Deep South (read: living among barbarians). If they are actually capable of conversation, I can engage them and answer each of their points...in my favor...since most of their arguments are for them, not me: I get validation of long hair's attractiveness on a regular basis by (attractive to me) strangers; the only reason my income hasn't gone beyond 5 figures is concerted effort on my part in the last couple decades; and I do all the things I enjoy on a very regular basis. *dusts paws*
