      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Vulturing Food at Yosemite!

Recommended Posts

Who's done it, and what did ya get?

 

I got a pitcher of beer and most of a pizza when some guys realized they had left food in their car just after a bear announcement. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

 

One of the guys I was with would finish partially eaten portions. I drew the line at that. hellno3d.gif

Aside from the occasional piece of fruit, I was never much on scarfing in the Valley, though we made the most of berry season outside.

 

One time with a small horde in a restaurant in Kanab, UT enroute to Paria Canyon, we eagerly eyed the plentiful leftovers at the next table. The owners noticed, and cooked us up a dozen trout they had caught that day, since they (accurately) figured we were hungry but underfunded. Mormons are funny bunch, but I've been on the receiving end of charitable urges several times, and very much appreciated it.

Breakfast every morning for 3 months in 2000. For 6 weeks in 2002. Usually half pieces of toast, half eaten order eggs, half bowl oatmeal, half of a half-stack pancakes. Occasionally a full piece of fruit. Usually took about 30 minutes to get enough grub for a meal. Best time to show up was right after the morning rush when the busboys couldn't keep up. The plop down at dirty table with grub you want and dig in. Always free coffee (bring a mug) .

 

Didn't scark much lunch/dinner but smoked out a Degnan's worker summer 2000 and kept getting "whoops I made an extra" sandwiches for free when he was working. Scored a whole pizza at the deli when some lady's kid fell and busted his noggin open. She grabbed the kids, grabbed the sodas, and ran off leaving the pie on the table....better for us to eat it than the snaf.gif

My biggest score wasn't making the vulture rounds. We found an box of Hostess hohos at the base of the cliff, buried under some rotten leaves. They were probably about 10 years old. We ate all of them, and they were just as bad as if they were new.

OMFG...you pedophile! I scored with a hostess from the Mountain Room restaurant and she was kind of a ho-ho, but I didn't eat her and she was at least 19.....Oh shit, my bad, you were talking about food blush.gif

Snuck into the buffet 12 nights in a row.

 

Much higher risk. Get caught scarfing, and odds are you'll just be asked to leave, I don't know that there is anything actually illegal about it. Get caught sneaking into a buffet, and they'll call it theft. Do something like it in the Valley, and it's a federal offense. hellno3d.gif

i never really had to vulture food. my measly yet weekly unemployment checks and trips to the grocery outlet kept me from having to do that. although ... i did get a lot of free hot chocolate, brown sugar (at the oatmeal bar), and milk for my cereal (from the coffee "creamer" jug).
