  5. Looking for something like Sunshine on hood, W Ridge Forbidden, or Eldorado. Rock or snow, doesn't matter, just not difficult. Weekend is best, but during the week might work too.

    Climb'n'swat'n mozzies at Broughton? OK, though I'll get there more like around 6 than 3. Kinda startin to like climbin at the Butte, though. Where else can you use a Honda firewall to backup your toprope anchor?

  17. Kegger for the Hell of It

  18. Sounds like you were the party we ran into late Sat. afternoon as we were pulling into Beaver Pass. Did you find the flies any nicer down at Luna camp? I think we pulled a compass out twice on the bushwhack. We just started out a little S. of the shelter and moved directly upslope as much as possible, avoiding the heaviest brush. Brings you right up to the flat at 5700'. Did your map use NAD27? I believe the Mt Challenger quad is based on NAD83.
  19. Need more Galloway!!!

    From j_b: and from the US Senate report he linked: And Bayoil seems to be the exception as the only US company to pay a surcharge. So we basically have one rogue US company, and no evidence that the US government knew what that company was up to. I implied j_b thinks it's fine for anti-war players to be on-the-take since this thread is called "Need more Galloway!!!" and he seems to be quite a cheerleader for him.
  20. Need more Galloway!!!

    Actually, your source seems to be a bit of a leftwing shill... Your link to the Guardian says that US oil purchases accounted for over half of the kickbacks paid to Saddam. The Washington Post <link>("Oil-for-Food Benefited Russians, Report Says") makes it clear that there were no US "purchases" and that Bayoil's involvement was to facilitate the Russian's participation in the Oil-for-Food scam. It's true that they made profits on the deal, but they are now under federal indictment (that would be under Bush's Justice Dept.) I'd like to see just what the accusation is that the US Treasury failed to take action against Bayoil at the time. ... So you think it's fine that the key anti-war players were all "on the take" from Saddam before the war, just because one US company found it's way in as a middleman?
  21. Hood W. Side

    Anybody up for Leuthold's or the Reid? Maybe something else if there's much new snow. Most anytime before Tuesday is open for me.
  22. Cross Country skiing from PDX

    Yes and no... I've been hoping to get my kids out in the snow soon too. There are several snoparks near Government Camp (closest are just past the road to Timberline), but the current conditions aren't too promising: GovtCamp WebCam
  23. Cycling vs Running

    I'd give cycling a thumbs up too. The most important thing is to pay attention to your cadence and keep it at least 80rpm - and more is better. I've found that many people who don't like training on a bike are'nt spinning nearly fast enough. "I can't push a hard enough gear without going up a big hill, and there aren't any good hills around here" is the wrong way to go about training on a bike. The flats are considered boring in road races because drafting allows a group to easily chase down breakaways--not because you can't get a good workout on them!
  24. Giant PDX pub-climb send fest
