  3. Your other hobbies...

    Driving. passing up gems along I-15 such as Kolob/Zion, Red Rocks, J-Tree, Idyllwild, in order to sesh trestles, swami's, O-side. shit's been good this winter.
  4. wow. nothing short of spectacular right there. I know your busy smash-n-grabbin' n all, but you gotta take a few more pics next time. ~51 hours... pffft. next time how about sportin' a windshirt, shorts over polypro, sandals over socks... that way you wont leave your kid hangin' on the Monday morn walk to school. making him wait 'til Tuesday morn is straight up neglect. come on now...
  5. '13/'14 season stoke

    brain stem wall. nice.
  6. Workout music

    songs that benefited me in the past for hitting new PR's red fang - "prehistoric dog" melvins - "night goat" cephalic carnage - "repangaea" songs that strangely compelled me to wanna toss the oly plates, kick-over the airdyne, and cleave shit with a battle axe. electric wizard - "barbarian" [video:youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cKkdwAaljM electric wizard - "funeralopolis" [video:youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sO7VP34n2Ps&oq=electric%20wizard%20funeralop&gs_l=youtube..0.5j0l6.127175.133164.0.135640. electric wizard - "dopethrone" [video:youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWHplp10kQM
  7. Shot or Jail?

    nat sez hi. yeah even Kowboy cant deny the stoke found while strapped to a pair of the 21st century skis. so unlike the skinny ski days up on snoqualmie pass in flannel and levis. how can we help you. for gods sakes man, we cant have you being tortured. shot or jailed is not an option. plenty of pow to go around here in the sheeps pen. buy the ticket, take the ride. i got a extra room... in the basement.
  8. Shot or Jail?

    Shot or Jail? Neither. just send 'em over to Rob's house, he'll "Kill 'em with Kindness". :kisss:
  9. Shot or Jail?

    thats what i like and want to believe, but... the reality is is that they will become a protected class within the prison system by means of isolation from the general population, those that would deliver the ass rapin. having watched a couple of episodes of Locked Up Abroad, my opinion about the uselessness of the US incarceration system only builds. altruistic approach to their punishments, err rehabilitation, FAILS. its best to just spend the 38-cents.
  10. Shot or Jail?

    Who do you think you're kidding, T-man? I know you're a knuckle-dragger, and snowboarding will never wash away the filth. jezuz its been a long time E. ive been forgiven of that filthy sin many years ago. been rockin' the gospel of rando for a while now. the field is white and ready for harvest. where you been?
  11. Shot or Jail?

    goddamit... just when i recovered from watching this movie, An American Crime a coupla weeks ago, i gotta go and click the OP's link and open an old mental wound... hopefully skiing the wasatch pow this weekend will purify my mind.
  12. Where to stay for Hyalite trip?

    why not take advantage of both venues. sesh some big sky pow and tool top notch ice in hyalite. dont let a 2-hour commute detour you man. get your shit up early enough to where you pull into the parking lot a half hour before daylight. FWIW, my sis's cabin is ~130mi from the hyalite parking lot, we consistently knocked out daytrips in approx 2-hours plus change one-way, a handful of times. hell, we've even made a 3.5-hour drive plus 2-hour approach, oneway, to tag a rowdy piece of ice in the southeast corner of Glacier NP, all in a days work (not sprayin' just lettin' you know whats possible). start early, get juiced and stay juiced, finish late. if your not willing to smash-n-grab shit during your hard earned vacation, well, i dont know what to say... enjoy the free amenities?.
  13. +1 yep. with new standards, styles, and methods creeping into "american [pnw] mountaineering", the haters will haveto yet add another ueseless peice of equipment to their rack: cognitive dissonance.
  14. Ring Training?

    the young guns have pushed the envelope into F class these days... [video:youtube] "A still rings routine with a 7.7 d-score. Rodriguez F Azarian Maltese F Van Gelder E Balandin II E Layed out Yamawaki E Back uprise Maltese E Maltese press to inverted cross E Layed out Honma to Handstand D O'neill E Layed out double double F Difficulty: 5.2 Connection: N/A Element groups: 2.5 Start Value: 17.7" Note: the Uprise fwd. to inv. swallow with. supp. phase (2s) = Rodriguez = holy shit balls!

  15. Utah climbers?

    damn dude i thought you would've gotten the memo... Superbowl tail-gate party on the Great White Icicle balcony ledge went down in classic style... alpine debauchery at its finest... flipping the meat with Kyle Dempsters 2010 Piolets d'Or award...
  16. nice STH stoke... btw, you dont need tat... you just gotta know where to look for the hardware... some of it is kind of trivial... hit me up on your next go around on that thing, ive got an extra bike. and on a side note, the farmed ice of pitches 6-10 has seen its glory days back in Feb/Mar 06... since then nobody's been willing thrash-up the hate-filled bridalveil gulch and mountainside to asses the carnage done to the hoses during a massive bridevail bowl avi during the 07/08 season...
  17. yet another option... had great experiences holing up at the David Thompson Resort. although unofficially closed in the winter, they will accomodate the ice climber. they put you up in the the employee lodge, which is not a bad gig at all. you get your own room equipped with clean sheets and baseboard heating, showers, iron chef stadium size kitchen, huge lounge loaded with all the amenities to sastify you enterainment needs, washer/dryer... you get the idea. And while your out hacking away, the resort host is willing to drive into Nordegg to fetch supplies, groceries and your beverage(s) of choice at no charge. At the time (’99,’02,’04), the costs were amazingly low, 15-20 us dollars per person per group of 4. Across the road you have the Cline River Gallery... a day’s worth of ice cragging. A minute or two up the road you have the classics like Elliot's Left Hand, Nothing But the Breast, Kitty Hawk, Five Seven Zero... 30 miles up the road you have(Saskatchewan River Crossing) Oh Le Tabernac and enivorns. A couple of miles north of Oh Le you have the Lady Wilson – Polar Circus – Weeping Wall corridor. A couple of miles south of Oh Le you have Murchison – Bow Falls corridor. so, driving-wise from the resort, its not a bad gig for a week's worth of ice.
  18. Body Fat Testing

    the following method might be useful for the dirtbag not willing to shell out 49 bucks for a hydrostatic test- body fat calculator kimmo, if you have a second, plug in your recent bodyweight stats into the linked spreedsheet, and verify for us the +/- 3% accuracy claim. thanks
  19. recently read a couple accounts from through-hikers observing climbing anchors on a couple of formations in the Point of Arches area. i'm looking to spend some family time on shi shi beach in the near future and am needing to know if its worthwhile to hump in a rack along with my shoes. i plan on doing a little exploratory bouldering, but am wondering if these purported observations noted above are indeed established routes. climbing beta for the area would be greatly appreciated. ...unless the rock is complete choss i dont see how this stack does not contain a route or two: courtesy: mchl_hannam (flickr) thanks

  21. Economic News

    Through the years from 1913 to 1971 the System of capitalism was changed to the present socialist-type economy when America was taken off the Gold Standard and Richard Milhous Nixon proclaimed by Decree (not Amendment) "We are all Keynesian". Since then we have become a complete socialist-type government in regards to economics. This is the real truth and the bottom line of why we have this present situation. and j_b makes a valid statement: Under the Keynesian Economics, wealth gets transferred to those who control it and everyone else is placed under its debt, just as it is today. Eventually the debt becomes too great to keep propped up by artificial economics. It builds debt, not wealth. Except for the people who sit at the top of this system. And is so cunning in its deceit, that only one in a million understand it, just like Keynes himself said. "By a continuous process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method, they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some....The process engages all of the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner that not one man in a million can diagnose." - John Maynard Keynes Economic Consequences of the Peace, 1920 Thomas Jefferson got it right! I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.

  25. fish oil supplements

    good discussion Kirkland Signature would be the best bang-for-your-buck. after running the table/buffet on most brands, i noticed that this is the only product that didnt give me the nasty "fish burps"
