  1. I've been looking for something to be angry about and I'm hanging my hat on this.
  2. If you’ve seen Idiocracy you would see the flaw in this plan.
  3. Looks fun @JasonG ! Cool pic of Vesper, had to zoom in to see those tracks.
  4. Do they just lock the gate during the winter? From what I've read elsewhere the gate has been up, you just need a vehicle with clearance for the road.
  5. Lets go hunt down that drone user and maybe he has some footie. Then we can smash the drone like violent animals.
  6. If I was pissed off enough I would take their controller and huck it. But just sounds like a bummer when we are just trying to find some solitude/a challenge/a good time. And I talk tough but probably I don’t want to poison my time in the hills with a shitty interaction with some asshole. Modern life: what a joy.
  7. Wow, what an adventure! And great pictures! That is so awesome you guys are getting those grants from the AAC and CalTopo. I've primarily been a Gaia GPS user since I have a ton of data in there, but came across CalTopo (I had used it a long time ago, but its way better now) a couple months ago and was super impressed with it and have been using it more. Thank you so much for sharing your story here, and congratulations on a great trip to an amazing place.
  8. Just came across this from June this year: https://www.nps.gov/mora/learn/news/climber-fatality-and-recovery-on-mount-rainier-6-6-23.htm What stood out to me was the soloist was 80 years old! I think the record for oldest person to summit is 82? This guy had previously had the record for the oldest person to summit Rainier, and had previously summited Everest solo. https://people.com/body-washington-man-found-went-missing-climbing-mount-rainier-celebrate-birthday-7509313 Did any of you know him? Dawe Eddy was his name. This year a woman set the record for the oldest woman at 78. https://www.mountaineers.org/blog/rose-vanderhoof-78-becomes-oldest-woman-to-summit-mt-rainier

    Damn, what a story https://www.cnn.com/2023/11/14/us/colorado-hiker-missing-dog-alive/index.html
  10. Really good news. https://washingtonclimbers.org/index.php/lower-lump/ Toxic Shock!
  11. I drove the road this weekend, hiked up the Blanca in the snow. The new road section is well done. I hiked that section when the road was out and was wondering how they would do it, of course had to go up the hillside away from the river. There is an immediate 11% grade to get up away from the river. the road to the blanca trailhead is washed out, but not meaningfully (only adds 1/4 mile and is passable by high clearance 4x4 if you really want to get up the road).
  12. List TRs that look like they have photos but they aren't showing up here. Some of them I can fix. Others I can't (usually if they are stored somewhere other than CC.com and are gone from the server that originally have them....I can't fix that). I just randomly found this TR was missing its photos, and I was able to fix it.
  13. Well, I sold that bike and moved on to another one with better tire clearance and more modern mounting for brake mounting. But but the best bike is the one you have and can afford.
  14. Yep you need an account to download attachments. But now you have an account! Time to spray.
  15. Not everyone is concerned with following the law or if others follow the law or not. For those that care: https://www.fs.usda.gov/visit/know-before-you-go/recreational-drone-tips UAS are considered to be both “motorized equipment” and “mechanical transport” and, as such, they cannot take off from, land in, or be operated from congressionally designated wilderness areas.
  16. A fun poll on this activity that seems to be becoming more popular.
  17. https://www.climbing.com/news/climber-stuck-for-12-hours-in-crack-the-doctor-prescribed-ketamine/ or just shit yourself like Kruk.
  18. https://www.snohomishcountywa.gov/624/Index-Galena-Rd---MP-64-69---Index-2023 November 4th! I'm not gonna lie, I kinda of liked the road being out....just because it cut down on the # of people up in that area when I drove around to get there. But I'm sure it sucked for people who live up there!
  19. I had it to myself! Slept in my truck up at overnight lot, was just on a random wander. Woke up at 5am and went down there, that shot is lit by the full moon. But..it wasn't long before the hoards started showing up. I left and went down to hike up Church mtn.
