  1. This is a carry-over from another thread. Let's see them pics. Really big housecats, no Photoshop cheating, unless it's really funny.
  2. Annabelle is a meanie!

    "APRIL 21ST - BASECAMP ITS THE LAST RESTDAY AND WE LEAVE AT 4.30AM TOMORROW MORNING THROUGH THE DREADED ICEFALL DIRECTLY TO CAMP 2. I FOUND OUT THIS MORNING AS I MADE MY SOCIAL ROUNDS OF EVEREST BASECAMP THAT THE ICEFALL MOVED AGAIN DURING THE NIGHT LEAVING MIKE THE GUIDE FROM ADVENTURE CONSULTANTS AND MANY OTHERS STUCK UP AT CAMP 1 UNTIL THE ICEFALL DOCTORS MANAGED TO FIX THE ROUTE YET AGAIN!! I WENT OVER TO CHAT TO THE GIRLS ON GUY COTTERS TEAM, ONE WILL BE THE FIRST CANADIAN TO DO THE SEVEN SUMMITS, SHE HAS TO DO EVEREST AND DENALI, AND THE OTHER GIRL IS IRISH AND THERE IS BIG COMPETITION THIS YEAR AS TO WHO WILL BE THE FIRST IRISH GIRL ON THE SUMMIT. THANK GOD IM NOT INVOLVED IN ANY COMPETITION IN TRYING TO REACH THE SUMMIT, ITS HARD ENOUGH WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL PRESSURES. I HAD COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF KIWI COFFEE WITH THE ADVENTURE CONSULTANTS CREW AND THEN WENT OVER TO THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL TENTS AND HAD A LONG CHAT TO DAVE ( THE ONLY MAN ALLOWED TO VIEW MY MOUNTAIN CONFESSION PRIOR TO RELEASE!!) HE TOLD ME I HAVE TO DO ANOTHER CONFESSION AT CAMP 2, THIS IS WHERE I TELL ONLY THE CAMERA MY INNERMOST THOUGHTS AND FEARS ABOUT THE CLIMB..

HAD A LOVELY CHAT WITH DAVE AND SPOKE TO ANDREW WHO WAS WITH HECTOR AT CAMP 3 AND SAID IT WAS VERY CROWDED UP THERE. SHAUNA AND BEN ARE AT CAMP 2 AND ARE BOTH DOING REALLY WELL, SHAUNA IS APPARENTLY REALLY STRONG AT THE MOMENT. I HATE HEARING ABOUT OTHER STRONG WOMAN ON THE MOUNTAIN!!!

Jeez I sure hope AB doesn't need to get any help from that "strong woman"!
  3. My Original Artwork - From the Vault

    I love the first one. Are you doing the t-shirts again?
  4. Joe's a Liar

    Lieberman's a loser. He ran with Gore on the purchase of Medicare benefits by 50- and 60-somethings and now he's threatening to filibuster. Ugh.
  5. Middle Fork Road

    Yes, it is fully funded, just a matter of time.
  6. I'm wearing some now that my therapist put on me for a case of tennis elbow. I'd like to get a roll (2" wide) so I can reapply between PT sessions. Where to buy it?
  7. quickest way to heal blisters?

    To not get them in the future: Bridgedale socks. They fit very well. The right boots. Get them now.
  8. Forget Crossfit/Gym Jones/Mtn Athlete

    Wow, no kidding. I've never seen it before--looks like a pretty insane workout.
  9. Wolves To Be Delisted

    This is just the kind of thing I feared we would see with Salazar's appointment.
  10. Regressive Tax at Skull Hollow Campground

    Yeah, cry me a river, people. Free camping with any amenities is so 1997.
  11. Regressive Tax at Skull Hollow Campground

    Porter, you do understand that money generated from timber sales goes into the General Fund, don't you?
  12. Regressive Tax at Skull Hollow Campground

    The FS does that too, though...
  13. Regressive Tax at Skull Hollow Campground

    It's five dollars people. And while Grasslands is not *long* on amenities, it has fire pits, tables, toilets, and all require some degree of upkeep. BLM camping is not always free anyway--ever been to ID? Plus what is all of this about every change requiring a lengthy public process? I don't see a legal issue here, enlighten me.
  14. Rush

    And that probably doesn't even count the few mil of us who catch Rush on Olbermann every night.
  15. Anyone on the Facebook?

    I joined a few days ago. Huge time-suck, but lots of fun. I'm registered under my real name--ping me if you're on there too.
  16. Anyone on the Facebook?

    Actually, I think it was "snark". Same diff, really, 'cep Smarm's a little creepier and snark's a little more sarcastic. I'm really enjoying running into people i've lost touch with over they years, and unlike forums in general, people are generally nice to each other. I have to agree with Matt that FW would probably not enjoy the benefits of FB--but hey, it's not for everyone.
  17. Anyone on the Facebook?

    My La Pavoni is the envy of everyone. What a gorgeous machine.Thanks so much.
  18. Anyone on the Facebook?

    FACEBOOKING THE LOLCATS. BUT YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT BECAUSE YOU ARE TWITTERING MY BLOG TO YOUR IPHONE. Seriously, it's kinda fun catching up with ...everybody.
  19. IT Band Issues

    I highly recommend rehabbing in the pool. I've rehabbed several injuries that way, and post orthopedic surgery as well.
  20. I was wondering the same thing. Beating up and leaving for dead an XC skier? That's so f'ed up.
  21. Cool stuff at the OR show?

    The show is so big now that I'd hate for it to be 1x/year, that would make it even more ginormus. I'd like to see the people whho run OR be a little more selective about who they rent space to, as mentioned above, way too much "lifestyle" crap. Just the real thing, thanyouverymuch. The fact that the show attendance is down a bit actually makes it a lot easier to get work done, you spend less time wallowing in huge crowds. I'm fine with the show being in SLC, it's kind of a sucky town, but who cares? I'm so tired at the end of the day that grabbing a bite and falling into bed early's about all I have left.
  22. Western trees dying at an unprecidented rate

    Idaho's getting et up by those pine beetles. I won't be surprised if the White Clouds lose all of their trees eventually.
  23. Trying to get a neoprene sleeve onto the tube of my hydration sytem with zero success. I've tried putting baby powder on the tube, no luck with that. Anyone know the best way to accomplish this? I'm headed to colder climes tomorrow and would like to be able to use the hydration system without the dang tube freezing up.
  24. I found an older hydration setup in my freezer with a smaller diameter hose, got the whole thing wet in the sink, and a thrash and a half later, the sleeve is on there. I don't think I'll ever take it off of there now....
  25. Seriously? That would make a horrible mess. I did not post my question in spray because it's a serious question, jackass.
