Snow clinic: Day 1 photos

Day 1 - Looking back
Snow camping pics!

I'll be posting these in batches along with each day's write-up. Below the fold is a selection of thumbnails/links of Day 1 photos from the snow camping photo gallery. (There are even more of them there, so make with the clicky.)

As a special bonus, included in this post is a panoramic view of Lake Tahoe from the ridge above our base camp. (The gallery has much larger versions if you're interested in downloading one as wallpaper or such.)

What's my line? (pic by Kinkyturtle)

Another band I'll have to someday start

kadyg and I were joking around at the ice cream parlor last night about lutefisk (LOO-tə-fisk) -- its possible utility as a baby food due to its jelly-like texture and protein content; its contraindications as a baby food due to the fact that, oh, it's made with lye; and what this might do to the baby's digestive system.

So now we need to name a band the Lutefisk Diapers.

Their debut album can be titled "Look What Just Came Out." I suggested an album cover of plain crinkly white with a waistband barely visible at the top and a biohazard symbol prominently in the middle.

Perhaps they can start out as an eclectic cover band. If so, may I modestly suggest starting with bands such as Mannheim Steamroller and Sweet Lizard Illtet to bring to life a postironic retro-technopunk aesthetic? Plus, who could fail to appreciate such catchy song titles as "Toota Lute(fisk)" and "Throw Your (Lute)fisk In The Air"?
