  1. jealous?

    Jealous, No I have My Eye candy ! Who wants to worry about looks at a Crag ? and Who is looking at Who ? Who would want to live with a Climbing partner? I for one escape from the Family and the World when I climb and would not really want to take it with Me. No matter what She looks like. But I can understand Your feeling lucky, Everyone wants something diffrent out of life thats what makes the World fun and weird.

    Boy the Stories. Buzzed in the Okanogan once sitting in a Lookout on Tunk Mtn by a F-15 came by even with us and waved. Out in the Wheat fields east of Waterville seen a B-52 flying LOW below us towards Banks Lake. But having spent time the the Air Force, The best was riding along in a F-14 January 1986 We buzzed Main Street Omak at 400 mph about 200feet off the deck, had a big fat smile on My face that day !

  6. Best individual pitch of 2007?

    No big Alpine this year and things that stick in the mind are unnamed, or I forgot there name, or a blur. But several stick out. I did well over one hundred pitches before I lost count sometime around July A route at J-Tree in early March 5.10b(?) *** out north off the boy scout trail, long pitch of dime sized edges and a really nice south face, felt sick that day and wanted to puke after walking an hour but I did it A unnamed one at Candy Land (?) about 75+ minutes up off the road above Bridge Creek. 5.10a(?) small edges on really clean rock with a sloper crux to a stance. Starts off a big ledge with wonderful views. the wind whipped so hard that day it blew one of my brand new shoes into the world of the lost never to be found again.

  11. Deep thoughts....by jack handy

    If You just climb for numbers I think for the most part You wont be climbing long. Unless You must to keep the people who pay for you to climb happy. The avarage Joe-blow who still climbs after reaching there max number what ever it is, climb for the Love of it. You cant rate Your self worth by what the Media pushes on you or what others do or say. To many people worry about what others think about them and allow that to be the driving force in there lives....and climbs Climb for the moment, Enjoy the Stone, Remember the Day
  12. Leavenworth Mountain Sports

    All Said, LMS is not a place I would want to lose. Its nice to have a Local shop and not have to drive far or spend money on shipping. I will spend money there in the future as I have in the past. And hope they stay there, but customer service means alot.
  13. Leavenworth Mountain Sports

    its great to have a local place to shop, and Brian was great to work with and would work with you on pricing, but that seems to be gone.
  14. Benazir Butto murdered

    You could see this coming from a mile away. Sad and it will have long and short term effects on the region ! and not positive ones.
  15. Leavenworth Mountain Sports

    Sad, butts the place has not been the same. Kind of hate to say it because I like to buy local, and support local but the last few times I have been in there those working seem to not really give a Rats A**

  17. Bombing Iran: Carbon Neutral?
