Apologies if I already reported this shameless, self promotional news from last year: after several months of delay due to the Thomas fire and the subsequently disastrous debris flows in Montecito & Carpinteria, my Americana Cats band based here in Carpinteria was finally able to lay down 11 tracks of our debut CD of Americana […]
It was wonderful to spend a week up at Golden Trout this summer with classmates Carolyn and Doug Kirkpatrick. I loved taking my sons Pierce (12) and Ronan (10) on their first camping trip with an amazing group of Thacher Alumni and their families. The hikes, delicious food and the spectacular setting were a magnificent […]
Hiked the John Muir Trail in August with Redgie Collins CdeP ’07 and Kathryn Padgett CdeP ’07, culminating in a celebration at the Golden Trout Camp with Kit Collins CdeP ’66, Will Muir CdeP ’13 and Daniel Kruth CdeP ’13. Max Pillsbury CdeP 2008
Had a blast with my family (including Katie Ballou ’83) at Golden Trout. Cam Spaulding ’92 and company did a great job supporting our adventures! Photo One has Katie, Cam, Walker and Natalie Calhoun charging Langley. Photo Two is what it is all about. Alex Calhoun CdeP 1981
Hiked the John Muir Trail, finally, after first seeing the sign on an Extra Day Trip in 1967. Started from Golden Trout. In the photo are Harvey Kaslow, Deneys Purcell, and me, all class of 1967, at the top of Forester Pass on the fourth day after leaving Golden Trout. Robert Kendig CdeP 1967
How great is this picture?! Brooke LeVasseur ’96 was cleaning out her photos and stumbled upon it. It’s Peter Marlantes ’96 (at Golden Trout? Circa 1996?).
Last May, Carolyn Reed Kirkpatrick ’86, Morgan Smith ’85 and Sarah Lavender Smith ’86 bought an item at the Thacher Parents’ Auction for three nights in August at Golden Trout Camp. We recruited Rebecca (Bucky) Clyde Tennant ’86, Eric Gross ’85 and his wife Carmen, and several of our kids to join us. We enjoyed […]
As he noted, I had a great visit from Parker MacCready ’78 not too long ago. Otherwise, I’ve been too out-of-touch with Thacher friends for far too long. As Parker noted, we’re still living in Berkeley. (“We” now being wife Jennie and son Ben, with daughter Sarah off at college; Parker’s daughter is going to […]
Marielle and her dad, Chuck Warren, hiked 170 miles of the John Muir Trail over 12 days and finished by greeting the class of 2016 at Golden Trout.
At the beginning of August, I revisited the Eastern Sierras for the first time since working a summer at Golden Trout Camp after my junior year at Thacher. Evolution Valley and the Ionian Basin in Kings Canyon National Park. Memories of freshman year Homer as I was surrounded by Charybdis Mountain, Scylla, and the Three […]
