FA: Michi Tresch, late 1999?

The name: Denton Calhoun, was a guy who probably at one time owned a beater car that Michi bought when he got to the States from Switzerland. Michi drove this car down to my house in Bishop, and it never moved again. The cool part is he found an envelope under the front seat, addressed to Denton Calhoun, and inside was a rambling love letter from full figured woman, complete with snapshots of her naked in the backyard... frolicking with a Pug dog!!! Oh man! Those pictures were on my refrigerator for the next two years or so.....

Just came to me edit: If I recall, Michi shows us the letter and pics in the bouldering video, West Coast Pimp, by Steve Montesanto.
