  1. Don't you just hate complainers?

    Not to complain or anything but... What I love is when partners complain about the SAME DAMN THING from trip to trip. Like there's some big mysterious "reason" why their skins still won't stick, or their boots still don't fit. Or why they absolutely, positively, hand-to-God HAD to be a half hour late on a powder day... AGAIN!!!
  2. Learning to Lead in the Portland Area

    If Measure 30 doesn't pass, will these classes be canceled? Basket weavers beware... you're next!
  3. telemark boot recommendation?

    Is anyone even making leather tele boots anymore?
  4. Return of the Freshies

    There are several ways in, but my current fav is just to cross Clark creek and take a hard left heading up the spine of the ridge. Thread up thru the trees until you start seeing shots to your right or continue going up until you reach the bowls just above treeline. I've always been surprised how relatively hordeless this area has been in the past. All things must change, tho.
  5. Return of the Freshies

    Thanks and a shout out to all the nice skiers who left the few steep tree shots near Tilly Jane un-touched for me this afternoon. Mighty neighborly of you! -- yo, dag?
  6. Return of the Freshies

    BRING IT!!!
  7. where do you get your news and info?

    Another vote for Google News. We also get the NYT daily, and watch the BBC World News Friday nights on PBS if we're not already out of town.
  8. Iowa Sez...

    We Iowans don't trust anyone who rolls up their sleeves before they loosen their tie.
  9. How F'd up is this?

    I wanna know how so many people get Hawking to record the outgoing message on their phone machines...
  10. Your Definition of 'Patriotism'

    "Canadian patriotism?" Ask an ex-pat American...
  11. Your Definition of 'Patriotism'

    "Dr. Johnson says that patriotism is 'the last refuge of a scoundrel' . With all respect to that enlightened but inferior lexicographer, it is the first!" - "The Devil's Dictionary", Ambrose Bierce(sp?) I think the gov't is almost completely fucked up right now, but I still get chills during the National Anthem. Anybody saying I’m not patriotic can eat my star spangled shorts.
  12. Lunch of the Day

    A bowl of last Saturday's chicken/squash soup wiht a toasted poppy seed bun. Then a friend just dropped off some home made cinnamon rolls that don't look like they'll see tomorrow!
  13. Offensive Content

    I saw a similar discussion on another forum. The general consensus there was that "the Offended" would be the final judge of what would be deemed offensive. That was about it for me...
  14. Trimming Posts

    I've seen two jumpers. One in a parking lot under the St John's bridge and another who landed on the lower Marquam deck. Almost ran over his thoughtless dead ass too, motherfucker. Another time I had a friend go psycho and jump off the Vista bridge. I went looking for his put-in spot and found the butts from six Salems he musta smoked before leaping. Maybe I'll psot a TR about it sometime, I feel better already!
  15. What are you?

    All those deep questions and they never asked for my sign?
  16. Silver Star Mt.

    I've skied Silver Star several times, but always in the Spring. The East facing slopes off the South summit are where it's at. The approach around the S. side of Pyramid Rock is easier than the N. side road, imo. Dodge's book lists a ski tour that goes out the Skamania Mines road past Chimney Rock (also a great ski destination. take gear!) Then it crosses over to Bald Mtn and the Silver Star group, closing the loop on that road S. from Grouse Vista. That tour always sounded like fun to me. Have to be a great snow year 'tho... (???) In "Snow Trails", Gene Prater mentions night touring up to Silver Star to view the lights of Portland.
  17. Da kaPOW weekend TR

    We were at Skihowl Sunday too! Outback was insane but where was everybody??? Gunsite and the tree shots East of Willow were amazing. Snow conditions there were as good as I've ever seen 'em. We skied the trees North of Scottys late in the day and there were still freshiez galore. Was that you in the yellow jacket, Shred?
  18. Smoking Shovels

    There was a Maglite bong in the Rae Lks. bear box one summer. One of those monster four D cell models with a bowl glued into the switch hole. Always wish I'd hauled that out but it weighed a ton!
  19. Muffy owns skis

    (All third-class and half wit ) To Muffin's shining hour and Lamo Freshie Luvers everywhere!
  20. Muffy owns skis

    Not yet, Homeslice. But I'm workin' on it! A'bunadh!
  21. Muffy owns skis

    "You may say I'm a Lamo Freshie Lover... (da da dum dah) But I'm not the only one. (da da dum dah) I hope one da-ay-ay-ay you'll join us. (da da dum dah) And the whole world will ski as one.
  22. Aluminum Crampons = Cheap

    Love my Kongs. IMO, anyone falling in a slot on borrowed crampons is automatically a suspect for operator error. Even dull, mine'll stick in ice harder than the back o' Gods head. As they say...
  23. Muffy owns skis

    The volume in my heart just went to eleven! It isn't climbing, but skiing really is something.
  24. LOTR return of the king

    Things to do while watching LOTR* *(Return of the King) Stand up halfway through the movie and yell loudly, "Wait... where the hell is Harry Potter?" Block the entrance to the theater while screaming: "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!" After the movie, say "Lucas could have done it better." At some point during the movie, stand up and shout: "I must go! Middle Earth needs me!" and run and try to jump into the screen. After bouncing off, return quietly to your seat. Play a drinking game where you have to take a sip every time someone says: "The Ring." Point and laugh whenever someone dies. Ask the nearest ring-nut if he thinks Gandalf went to Hogwarts. Finish off every one of Elrond's lines with "Mr. Anderson." When Aragorn is crowned king, stand up and at the top of your lungs sing, "And I did it.... MY way...!" At the end, complain that Gollum was offensive to Ethiopians. -Talk like Gollum all through the movie. At the end, bite off someone's finger and fall down the stairs. When Shelob appears, pinch the guy in front of you on the back of the neck. Dress up as old ladies and reenact "The Battle of Helms Deep" Monty Python style. -When Denethor lights the fire, shout "Barbecue!" Ask people around you who they think is the next "Terminator" sent from the Middle Earth of the future to assassinate Frodo Baggins. In TTT when the Ents decide to march to war, stand up and shout "RUN FOREST, RUN!" Every time someone kills an Orc, yell: "That's what I'm Tolkien about!" See how long it takes before you get kicked out of the theatre. During a wide shot of a battle, inquire, "Where's Waldo?" Talk loudly about how you heard that there is a single frame of a nude Elf hidden somewhere in the movie. -Start an Orc sing-a-long. Come to the premiere dressed as Frankenfurter and wander around looking terribly confused. Remove the top off your drink, then proceed to light the straw on fire and tell people in the seats around you about a great battle that took place in your cup long ago. When they go in the paths of the dead, wait for tense moment and shout, "I see dead people!" -Imitate what you think a conversation between Gollum, Dobby and Yoda would be like. -Release a jar of daddy-long-legs into the theater during the Shelob scene. Wonder out loud if Aragorn is going to run for governor of California. When Sam holds Frodo's hand (or otherwise), start singing, "The Ambiguously Gay Duo!" When Shelob comes on, exclaim, "Man! Charlotte's really let herself go!" (If this has been posted before, call my attorney.)
  25. funny movies

    Try Freaky Friday. It wasn't as good (or as bad) as it could've been, but it's certainly a family friendly film. I really liked Stuart Saves his Family "You'll laugh because it's not your family. You'll cry because it is." The Guru Also, pretty hokey, but gets a B from me for the effort. The very little sexual content might disqualify it for the kiddies, tho'... Too bad Intolerable Cruelty isn't out yet... I thought that was hilarious! But again, definately a NOT for all families.
