  1. Thursday 5/11/06 while on my way down the trail, I lost my favorite hat. Please if found please PM me. A lovely thank you card and a treat will be sent to the finder. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!!
  2. I was up last weekend and while I had snowshoes with me I only used them for the first mile or so up. They are helpful, but not required.
  3. Thinking about doing this route in April. When does the icefall usually melt out? I've been up to Ingraham Flats several times but it was always in July or later and the Ingraham glacier was always an un-navigable mess. If we go in april are skis/snowshoes a must? I searched but couldn't find anything. Thanks,
  4. Anyone on here use the Garmin Foretrex 101? How is usability when it's cold out?
  5. Check this thread. It's not the MOST up to date, but it has some decent info. Yup, saw that one. Fishing for that new info that might be out there.
  6. OK, I know this has been covered in the past but I'm in the market now so. . .what are some units to look into? I'm specifically interested in light weight & full featured. Anything to avoid? Thanks.
  7. Interested in buying a softshell jacket. Large in size. Good to excellent condition. PM me with pics & details. Seattle area. Thanks, Matt
  8. I'm wondering what exactly is entailed in foot adjusting & muscle striping I guess.
  9. Can you explain your last sentance in a little more detail?
  10. I sprained my ankle pretty badly about 7 years ago. It took awhile but at one point I was fully healed, with it only hurting mildly on long runs. I recently ran a marathon and I believe I've re-sprained it. My ankle hurts when I massage it in the same spot that it hurt previously. Also the muscles (I believe they are the peronials?) that run down the sides of my legs towards the ankle are sore and tight a lot of the time. My foot seems to be cocked at an outward angle and I feel like I'm developing a bunion on the lateral forward side of my foot. It's really irritating, and it makes my foot feel "unstable". What can I do to alleviate these symptoms? Glucosamine? Isolated stretching? Massage therapy? I'm going to the doctor on Wednesday.
  11. I did a cursory search and didn't find anything. Can someone give me the rundown on milages from where they gate Hwy 20 to the pass, pretty please. Who's gone up there in the winter? Any tips or tidbits of info to share? How long did it take you and what did you accomplish on your trip. Thanks for the info.
  12. That's awesome (the catolog part, not the shrapnel part), I wish you a speedy recovery. Looking forward to those pics.
  13. I have long wanted to make the trek over to Washington Pass in the winter but I've got no advice for ya. Let us know how it goes.
