What's to imagine? People actually SAYING they are passing through, and not just dropping their ropes on your head! hahaha


MY beverage business idea(and I had 2, one of which was a pirate venture)was:

First - pirate one: Line a backpack with contractor bag, to create an ice bucket, fill with beers and other imbibables and make your way along the cliff base oh, say about 2pmish...

This one was several years ago and even then I knew it was just wishful thinking. I would never jeapordize my access to the preserve by doing such a thing.

The second one - is that the preserve could build out a wood deck at that section of the Uberfall area where the (now dried-up) water pipe is. This wood deck would have umbrella'd tables, and a cafe which served beer and other imbibables(in non-glass containers, of course) and ice cream. mmmmmm.....

Taking it to nth degree. Build Grand Canyon styled Skywalk http://www.grandcanyonskywalk.com/ projecting out from the top of Twilight Zone. The "summit lodge" could be designed along the lines of a traditional cedar gazebo. Add all the accoutrements described above and we've got it!

How many here used to participate in Maury's Saturday or Sunday afternoon wine tastings near the water pipe? Those were a touch of class (from an unlikely source)

I only was fortunate to stumble into the wine tasting once. Maury! A gentleman I have not seen in a long while. Does anyone know of him? He could be walking by me with his hair/beard trimmed and I doubt I would recognise him.

I found an old sticky pass that was for $5. It brought back memories of looking for parking on 44/55 and scrambling up the slope to Uberfall. A 340% increase in a little more than a decade. Not bad if your the preserve.

Its also "you're". I remember parking by the railing, $1.25 day passes and "Gunks buttons" (annual passes with a deadly pin). But once you start dwelling on the past...
