Great writeup! I particularly loved your description of the gear bazaar at Namche, that "come dance with me" peak, that spot-on description of Ms. Hawley, the permit meeting....

Brings back great memories. Sad to hear there is so much trash these days. When I was there a decade ago the only trash on the route was the toilet area at camp 2 - which some guys wound up bivying on with space blankets, to our amusement/consternation - and some old fixed rope, some of which we were able to chop and remove.

I am sorry you didn't give climbing the Yellow Tower a try on your first day. It can be climbed in boots with a pack by at least one Gunks 5.8 climber.... It's probably just as well, though, that you weren't higher in that storm.

We need to send you on more trips so you can write more trip reports. I'll make my first contribution to the RR TR Expedition Fund in beers.

Not only is that Posterous page a good write-up, but I'm amazed at the difference in quality between that and Rob's posts here.

You can also use search and replace in your word processor.

My experience with Microsoft Word is that the truncation problem yet persists.

Look at the original post and note where the truncation takes place. From the Posterous post, we see that the next character after fa is a c with a sedilla underneath it, which, for obvious reason, I won't illustrate here. Apparently this along with the hyphen and apostrophe tells UBB that the message is at an end. Boo to UBB!

How do you know all of this? All I know is that I type, and words appear on the screen. Hey I'm all for the RR trip fund!

How do you know all of this?

Just by &@(*^% trial and error with lots of the latter. Isn't it good to know why sometimes your words don't appear?

Thank you Rob. Memories awakened for me as well, from another time, another peak.

That's because there are, for example, two different kinds of dashes in MS Word. You have to search and, especially, replace with the right kind. Look up the difference in the en dash vs the em dash in MS Word.
For starters: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/msoffice/four-ways-to-insert-an-em-dash-in-a-word-document/2721
