  1. Anyone know anything about either of the mad rock mountaineering boots? How do they compare to sportiva trangos or glaciers, or other non-plastic boots.

     

    I was looking at them in a shop and the worker said that they were great shoes and he uses them for ice climbing, and glacier slogs. They are pretty cheap ($200). So that just makes me wonder about their quality. Also before going to the shop I didn't know Mad Rock even made mountaineering boots.

     

    I currently use glaciers, and am looking to upgrade a little. I need a full shank and front bail, which the Mad Rocks have. So that is why I am curious about their quality.

     

    any thoughts?


  2. Well Thatcher. You have obviously never spent any of your life in a wheelchair. I cannot believe you are so ignorant. It is hard having a decent quality of life as it is living with a disability, and then people like you critcize for wanting rights.

     

    It is really hard pushing yourself up any type of ramped incline so I can't imagine it would even be ADA addressing the trail issue.

     

    How about you stop complaining about people living with disablities and get off your ass and start hiking a little further off the beaten path and use your legs because you actually can.

     

    geeez kat, didn't you read my first post: "to make them wheelchair accessible. what the hell is your problem. don't you care about the cripple people?!!"

     

    i was defending those people, not criticizing them.

     

    anyways, the new low grade trails still aren't good enough for wheelchairs. i think the new trails are more intended for people who are out of shape, overweight, or just want a casual walk in the wilderness rather than working hard to enjoy God's beautiful creation.

     

    and last but not least...this is a photo of me atop mount rainier.

    inglis470.jpg

     

    so you misjudge me. if you are in a wheelchair, strap on those sticks and crampons and start hiking those high grade trails. that's what i did.


  3. I'm shooting a short, satirical, sarcastic documentary called, "How to Successfully...or Unsuccessfully Not Climb Mount Rainier"

    It takes a comedic approach to "climbing" the ant trail that is the Disappointment Cleaver route on Mount Rainier.

     

    Don't get me wrong, The popular, slog routes up Rainier are some of my favorite climbs. That's why I want to shoot the experience of ascending one. However there is also humor to be found in much of the rediculousness that is involved in the DC route.

     

    So I am looking for a couple people who are interested in helping me out. I will be up there from August 3rd to the 6th. I for sure need people for the 4th through 6th. I have one person already, but would like a couple more. This is the plan thus far:

     

    day 1: hike to muir, camp

    day 2: wake up early, hike to Ingraham flats, shoot some stuff around the flats and near the bottom of the cleaver, and in a crevasse or two, camp

    day 3: hike up to above the cleaver a little ways, shoot stuff just above the cleaver up the zig zag route on the upper mountain, go back to the flats, camp

    day 4: summit, come down and pack out, minimal shooting on the descent.

     

    So yeah, equipment is minimal. fuel and food will probably be heavier than the camera, tripod and batteries.

     

    Though the equipment is minimal, this isn't just me going up and shooting boring stuff of my climbing. It is scripted with specific things that I will want to get. I am continually working on the script, but I do have a rough draft I can email you if interested.

     

    Please email me if you are interested in helping out. This should be good fun. I've been up the DC several times as well as Emmons and many other cascade slogs.

  4. What's remarkable is that your earlier troll derail attempt sunk without even a ripple.

     

    i know. i was just going to post the pictures without jesus. then thought it would have no effect. so to maybe distract people i added the jesus. he tends to distract people easily in one way or another.

     

    even the one who wanted the thread to end ignored it.

     

    oh well better luck next time.


  5. Someone should kill this thread.

     

    i hate everyone and think that everyone should be capitaly punished:

    m197400560386.jpg

     

     

    did that kill the thread?

     


  6. you are WAY more likely to be executed for killing a white person than a black person. A system that results in the killing of inncoent people and punishes crimes against one race more severely than crimes against another is morally bankrupt.

     

    black people are good at enraging people very quickly. they are more straight forward, therefore it's easier to get really angry really fast at them and murder them in the heat of the moment. And that kind of murder doesn't typically lead to the death penalty, but life in prison.

     

    on the other hand, white people are so passive agressive that they are better at pissing people off over long periods of time, thus giving someone plenty of time to bottle up their rage against that person and then at a later time murder them pre-meditatively, which warrants the death penalty more often.

     

    so you can see that it isn't the justice system's fault, but instead, it's the murder victim's fault for pissing their killer off in different ways.

     

    oh and i have no basis whatsoever for this argument.

     

    and i want to add that i love black people. i had one as a friend once. and i like white people too. most of my friends are white. mexicans and asians are pretty cool too, but i don't have any that are friends.


  7. I actually have a TON of stretch marks. some are from when i had kids and some are from when i was a teen and losing and gaining weight all the time. they don't really bother me. they have faded some but i will have them until i die :fahq: battle scares. I earned them.

     

    there is nothing wrong with stretch marks alone. my gf has them from when she gained muscle really fast. it's the mix of cottage cheese and stretch marks thats nastyass. pregnancy is cool, so stretch marks are legit there. as are old faded ones from when a girl got thin and hott after being tubby early in life. there is nothing hotter than a chick that used to have some LBs and then lost weight and got really hott.

     

    thats just my opinion though


  8. I don't need pills. I have beer.

     

    well said. when life sucks, head to 7-11 and buy a 40 of steel reserve. And if you are clinically depressed, then you should become a full fledged alcoholic to cope.

     

     

    P.S. go see Transformers. it will help you cope with your weight gain...either that or watch Get Rich or Die Hard.


  9. the soccer moms don't have a good reason.

     

    you simultaneously miss the point and make it for me. :grlaf:

     

    i don't get it.

     

    oh and you are almost correct...highline school. probably just as bad. what do i know anyways. i studied japanese...but i failed at that too. then i studied ancient greek...and once again i failed at that.

     

    oh well.

     


  10. the flaw in his diagram is that there aren't percentages attached to the true and false. The more research that is done and evidence weighed as to A. whether it will happen or not and B. whether it is our fault has a lot to do with the decision that we make. If it is 90 percent likely that it either will not happen, or it isn't our fault (therefore we can't do anything to stop it), and 10 percent that our efforts would help, then I would fall into the column of not spending the money and time. if it was 90 percent certain that our efforts would help fix the problem and 10 percent possibility that our money and efforts would be wasted, then I would certainly put forth the effort.

     

    So that's the flaw that I find in his argument. That being said, I still think that the percentage weighs in the direction of it being our fault and we can and should do something about it. Prius here I come!!!

    pitch (n.)

    "tar," O.E. pic, from L. pix (gen. picis) "pitch," from PIE base *pi- "sap, juice" (cf. Gk. pissa, Lith. pikis, O.C.S. piklu "pitch," related to L. pinus; see pine (n.)).

     

    Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2001 Douglas Harper

    Online Etymology Dictionary - Cite This Source

    pitch (v.)

    c.1205, "to thrust in, fasten, settle," probably from an unrecorded O.E. *piccean, related to the root of the verb prick. The original past tense was pight. Sense in pitch a tent (1297) is from notion of "driving in" the pegs; meaning "throw a ball" evolved c.1386 from that of "hit the mark." Noun meaning "act of throwing" is recorded from 1833. The noun meaning "act of plunging headfirst" is from 1762; sense of "slope, degree, inclination" is from 1542; musical sense is from 1597; but the connection of these is obscure. Sales pitch is attested from 1876, probably extended from meaning "stall pitched as a sales booth" (1811). Pitch-pipe is attested from 1711. Pitcher "one who pitches" is recorded from 1722, originally hay into a wagon, etc.; baseball sense first recorded 1845.
