FC: He brought us to this place...
1: We assembled a few components and a concept rapidly emerged | A few iterations and we were there! | The Gary Lorenz memorial plaque project and follow up Circa 2008-2010
2: Somewhere up there a hard rock waited for us!
3: The preparation began with practice... | Eventually the logistics would challenge | and more practice!
4: BUT, WE HAD OUR MAN!!
5: Oct 4th, 2008 we assemble at the Ranch | Parking is at a premium
6: A presentation, a few words, a few smiles and its off to work..
7: A brief ride to the staging area | A 'we can do this' pep talk | Rusty showed the way | And we're off!!
8: We head up.. | ...and up! | Hey, wait for me! | At last, now to find the perfect stone
9: The fun begins | I think we've got it | Whoa, who carried all this? | I think it comes out this end
10: Frank mans the epoxy gun | Easy does it! | Nice!! | Finishing touches
11: The looks of satisfaction!
12: The Hobbits are content | The 13th is proud! | We reminisced a while
13: An emotional departure | And down we went.. | Smiles all around!!
14: Back at the Ranch, a few last photos, a chili-fest and a vow to return
15: And return we did, but first things first | Beat Navy!!
16: Oct 3, 2010, the ride in | Coach class | Business class
17: People, we can do this! | Someone's no so sure
18: Somehow the summit seemed easier | Rusty again led the way
19: Most important, the plaque survives! | Down we go.. | Happiness abounded!
20: New friends are made | More looks of satisfaction
21: The now traditional chili-fest | A farewell photo
22: Y'all come back, y'hear me
