personally, ~75% of what i read here brings me to tears, this post included....

ed e
Don't weep, Ed. It will be all right. Just breath.
I've been at vigil at my mother's death bed the last few days thinking everyone is the last, but she is hanging in there even though she hasn't really eaten in weeks and only sips a little water. Since I weaned her off the morphine the doctors had her on (she hated it and wanted off) she is back to 100% lucid. Last night she wanted and got an espresso,  a margarita and icecream and listened to Janis Joplin and Handel. Just to put things in perspective before we argue over silly things...

Wow,

I don't know you from a hole in the wall Mark but i have to second the "you are a good man and a good son" comment. General aging and health complications can turn into a theme for families as we get older. The affects are not just the obvious but often very complex and quite diverse. My family has been dealing in one way or another with a elderly sick parent or grandparent for many years now. Crazy as it sounds for about 1.5 years now we realistically have been able to say today could be his last. It changes everything when someone someones health deteriorates to this point they may or may not be with us tomorrow and need round the clock care and don't want outside help. It becomes a true family affair.

Off Morphine and out for a espresso is a major major achievement, you should feel very very good about yourself and be very very proud. Not everyone has doing something "caring for someone" like that in them. Plus Morphine is a bitch i am amazed she was able to tough that one out!! Just that stuff will make you sick at a point regardless of your other problems. Don't forget at least some time to climb if you can as i will keep you sane through this i am sure tough time...

Best wishes

Thanks, guys. Now back to Band M before the thread gets completely hijacked, though I probably pretty much killed it,  :-[.

Since they are quarying, I wonder if they could make a nice cave for us before it gets taken by imminent domain.

Brilliant, Love it. Lets have the colemans make us another cathedral cave! I just know that the world needs another "the devil made me dog it". In all actuality above the left side of the "butcher block wall" there are some very steep facey climbs that could be considered for sport routes. Sorry about your mom mark, your a good guy, I did the same for my grand mother last year and my lady helped her mom pass from cancer a couple years back, all the best to you.

Word Iíve heard is the property owners lawyers have said not to allow access to anyone despite the recent legislation, so I donít think itís going to change unless the Access Fund gets involved.

Hey Dave et. al.,
I did note this winter that there's a widely used snowmobile trail that crosses Coleman's property, and they didn't seem to have any problems with those guys on their land -- it might be worth asking the ownership for a clarification there.

thanks for the info Freddie. I'm not sure how this whole thing got started. I'm going to go over there in a few days and see if I can talk to someone. I suppose I could possibly understand shutting down access to Band M THROUGH the gravel area because of all the trucks. however, closing access to Albany Slabs makes no sense to me.
