  1. personal safety for female and males

    I appreciate the reminder, sisu. If one woman OR man reads this and avoids danger at some point in the future, you performed a valuable service. I perceive very few men understand what it is like to feel vulnerable so frequently as the women with whom I have had this discussion.
  2. Trip Photos

    Great photos, Carolyn! What a neat trip. Makes me wish I was there. Thanks for sharing. Hope we get to meet next time. jules
  3. Rainier conditions...

Rich But if you get there on Wednesday and say you're going up right away, and you're going to be there all weekend, you will get a permit that goes thru the weekend. And well, that means no spots at camp 24 hours before Saturday morning. That is exactly what happened to me 2 years ago. I think the 1st ranger I spoke to actually laughed in the phone when I called and said I was on my way down, how many spots are open at Schurman &/or Emmons Flats. "They've been full for the weekend since last night!" (I was calling on a Thursday).

  5. Rainier conditions...

    Get there on Wednesday night to snag permits for the weekends in the summer, they're usually all gone by Thursday morning (in my humble experience). Even then be prepared to camp on the Muir snowfield or Ingraham Flats on the DC route, or at Camp Curtis or Emmons Flats on the Emmons. Caveat: if someone is actually nice to inform the ranger station of the cancellation of their climb, they might re-sell those permits.... not sure though, just speculation. Mike, if you're out there, I defer to you.

  10. ANWR drilling

    quote: Originally posted by shuksan: So, j_b and AlpineK, I say show me the SCIENCE! (journal cites, please). shuksan, Who cares.... medicine is an art, somewhat a science... climbing is an art, somewhat a sport.... recent question I had in an interview: describe a recent situation in which your intuition combined with your expertise solved a problem. Gosh, why would anyone want to bother knowing if my intuition was functioning???? I just have a FEELING... don't drill in ANWR. As a matter of fact, everyone should get the f**k out of there and stop destroying the tundra and taiga by traipsing around doing these g-damned studies. EVERY footstep undoes thousands of years of development. I don't give a crap about fuel, it's the RIGHT THING TO DO. Oh, yeah, it was the topic of my team term paper in Environmental Management at UW. Don't touch it. Period. Go with your intuition and trust me. [ 07-22-2002, 09:34 PM: Message edited by: jules ]

  18. Basecamp Cuisine

    Hey, Jim, Kind of depends on how much weight you want to carry. Canned stuff? Freeze-ahead and pack it up inside your cookpot? Clam spaghetti freezes well and reheats quickly. Phad Thai requires a couple of canned items (bamboo shoots, baby corn, water chestnuts). Email me if you'd like recipes. Julie

  21. First Peak

    First learned the "rest step" in Camp Fire Girls a long, long time ago, but I'll be darned if I can remember the names of anything we went up (heck, ending a sentence with a preposition again).
  22. ANWR drilling

    Do not drill it. Little gain for a price that can NEVER be repaid.

  24. Fred, I believe that packs, tents, bags, etc are actually considered hard goods in the industry. Soft goods = stuff you wear. That aside, I love Arc'teryx apparel and packs - excellent quality, no superfluous crap, some nicely specialized pieces (packs). No extra fabric flapping around my arms with their outerwear, no bulky storm flaps, or pockets that I can't figure out what to do with (damn, I hate ending a sentence with a preposition). TNF, Marmot, Mtn Hardwear, Sierra Designs all seem to be headed in a similar direction, going for some of the trimmed-down ultra-light pieces with which Arc'teryx led. Mammut does some great Schoeller pieces, but I love my Arc'teryx Gamma LT just fine. I have used and since replaced: TNF Kichatna parka (I could have put a pole in it and used it as a bivy sack); Jagged Edge - WAY too bulky Primaloft jkt Moonstone - fleece jkt with cuffs that nearly cut off my circulation... and I don't have thick wrists; Mountainsmith pack - I should have run the other way when I heard "all the bells & whistles" come out of the salesperson's mouth. Still like my Marmot Driclime and Vindi windshirts. Love my REI Downtime and Sub-kilo bags. If I think of any more opinions, I'll send you a PM. jules
