  1. REI appreciation thread:

    You live in Chicago, what do you expect?
  2. the climber's death

    I wonder if people knew they where going to die in a car accident if they would stop driving? If they knew they where going to die in a plane crash they would stop flying......... I could go on and on..... I suppose if you knew you where going to die doing "something" you would choose not to do it. Life is what you make it, choose your path wellworn or less travled and get on with it. You don't get a second chance. I enjoyed the thought, thanks,

  4. Camp Muir - first timer

    Don't go until you have some hiking and backpacking experience. No sence in upsetting your family because you went down hill and fell into the nisqually or over compensated and fell in the paradise. No sence in wasting the time of climbing rangers on hikers who have no idea what they are doing. Please, don't go until you are able to make the trip without asking for "pointers" here on the internet. HIRE A GUIDE! Save us all the headache of watching another news report of experienced climbers dying on MOUNT RAINER! Go to Snow Lake with the rest of the newbies. Put in your time, learn something before you go and put your rescuers and risk. Leave Mike alone, he has awesome spring snow conditions and you would be just taking away his turns! My $2 bucks worth.
