  1. How to deal with work

    Can I have your job? I'm looking for one right now.

This class will be their aid climbing one, so I don't think it will be as big as what was at Spire. (Not sure how big, though.)

    ...PUSH...
  5. Where is beer drinking next week?

    Yup. My vote's for North End too....Greenwood or Ballard. What about the 74th Street Ale House? Non-smoking, clean, good food...

  8. snowboarders?

    I've tried one alternative to carrying the board, and that's attaching it to my pack with a long sling and towing it up like a sleigh. Doesn't work that great in real sticky snow, though. (Tug, tug, tug, tug...) Good for straight-up shots but absolutely sucks if you have to traverse.

    I make everything I need out of grass.
  12. Conditions on Muir snowfield?

    Yeah, come to think of it I was up there last February with just snowshoes, and it was a bitch trying to use them as crampons on the last 800' of ice. I'll probably wind up taking both. Or staying home and drinking beer and eating cheeseburgers. Depends on the weather.

    No. Just overall averages. I'm not THAT obsessed (or bored with life).
  14. Conditions on Muir snowfield?

    I've boarded down from Muir before and the snow sucked. Don't know if I would do it again. (Now watch me go and do it agian this spring.) What I'm wondering is if I'm going to do a deathmarch conditioner up there this Saturday, should I bring snowshoes or crampons?

    Lessee....at 817 replies plus the original post, divided by number of days in the life of the thread, blah, blah, blah... At this rate this thread will reach 1000 posts on April 19. And I thought you top-of-the-page posters were pathetic.

    The Buckaroo sounds cool.

Here's what I will say: I try to buy goods that are made in places (not necessarily the USA) where workers are treated fairly. I can't say that I make 100% on this, but I do OK. My choice not to buy products made by Omega Pacific can be boiled down to one simple fact, for the sake of this discussion. The prison workers do not have the right to organize for the purpose of collective bargaining. In my mind, the discussion can stop right there, as the lack of right to such is for me a deal-breaker. I'll bet that half of the products in your home are made in China.
  18. dangerous gear setups I won't use

    If safety is a trend, then I'll be trendy.

    Why buy anything made by an inmate in the US when you could get something cheaper made by a kid chained to a table in a third-world sweatshop?
  21. de-mucking boots

    Do a couple of snow trips in them.

    I'd be proud.
  23. 800 Posts Degrades The Performance Of This Site

    Just like drugs - or Microsoft Hotmail....

    I used to work for the state and they encouraged us to buy our office supplies and furniture from Correctional Industries of Walla Walla, WA (i.e. the state pen). Turned out the prices were not that competitive and the quality was poor, so I stopped buying from them. If nothing else it gave them something to do. [ 03-20-2002: Message edited by: lizard brain ]
