  1. This is a large volume (5200 cubic inch) backpack. It works well for both overnight and multi-day trips. I used it for 3 years, mostly for winter trips.

    This pack is comfortable to carry and has a broad range of load, and suspension adjustability.

    It is in like new condition... there are no rips, holes, stains or smells. All of the zippers, straps and buckles are intact and functional.


    Asking $80


    Here is a description of the pack and its features:







  2. Just an update for all you hippies--e.g. just FYI, I'm not trying to sound like dickhead--MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian have all abandoned underlining for book titles. Italics for titles; quotes for essays & chapters. :)


    You're being a dickhead. :grin:

    (I do it to make this lame forum text more readable.)

  3. The Worst Hard Times A telling of the cause and effect of a decades long suffer-fest in the dust bowl of middle America.


    great book, nice n' short too - read that right around the time my daughter nearly died of complications of hte swine-flu, sorta set my shit in its proper perspective - i never knew the dust bowl was so lethal to babies - the account of starved horses eating fenceposts protruding from dust mounds was memorable as well :)


    I grew up just uphill (foothills of the Temblor Range) from the southern San Joaquin valley of CA. As a kid I endured two, maybe three serious dust storms. Friends and family of mine experienced valley fever, which is pretty obnoxious and tenacious. I seem to have developed a tendency toward bronchitis resulting from a cold that my doc says may be attributed to growing up where I did.

    Mother Tongue Bryson's book about the curiosity and complexity of the english language.


    and I am currently working on A Splintered History of Wood. I'm on the chapter dedicated to half a dozen master woodworkers who happen to be blind.

    I went with a friend to climb a route he put up on a sandstone crag near the Swauk Campground off of 97. From the top of the crag, we could see another crag, so we took a short walk and came upon this. We circumnavigated the crag and found good quality rock and aesthetic lines on every aspect.

    There was a deep, tunnel-like cave to lookers left of this view that hissed at us.

    We left immediately.

  6. i thought it was prohibited to post about climbers that aren't northwest based on this website :noway:


    The size of Charlie Porter's balls cast a shadow wide enough to cover the entirety of the northwest.
