re: that National geographic. My sister got that addition, ya know, back when it came out, and called me and said the climber looked like me, was it me and I told her no. Then a niece called, "Mom says you're on the cover of National Geo climbing half dome," and I told her "no". Well every time I've denied things in general people then believe I'm lying. So now my whole family believes and tell stories about their Uncle Jim who was the first person to climb Half Dome. It wasn't me.
These are my own opinions based on wisdom earned through many wrong decisions. Your mileage may vary.
