  6. Denali Ascents or Evo's, as long as I can attach the extender tails for hiking with heavy loads. New, or used, or even more used, doesnt matter as long as they work fine. PM if ya got anything, and am willing to meet up or travel near the Olympia area if possible. Thanks!
  7. Shovel and Probe

    Like the rest said, Metal is the way to go since I broke a plastic one digging out a snow cave once. I now carry a Black Diamond Bobcat shovel (without the extender), and a BD Carbon Fiber wand for searching out my partners when they slip off an unheeded cornice or something. I like the CarFib probe because obviously, its light, but if you have ever probed a body or a buried soft tree limb with a metal one, its hard to tell, the CF gives you a better "Feel" of what "It" is, but thats my point of view as a former patroler.
  8. Intro and getting started

    By the way...............Welcome!
  9. AT settup Questions!

    See if you can rent some AT boots, and get to "feel" the difference in them as opposed to alpine boots. I like my Denali Xt's, and that is because I did my homework, and tried a few different boots, and in essence, this boots fit ME the just right, and were good for me on long approaches, and tours. Thats all I can say for now. You are doing the right thing by asking questions here, I just wish I had all the answers, but you'll find something soon. Thats all i can

  14. Wanted: OEC Manual and Workbook

    I might have a friend that has a copy, but if he doesnt, then I'll find out for you, unless you get to you local ski patrol 1st, cause thats the place to get it from since they use it as a step down from the emt cert. BTW, OEC is a walk in the park, trust me, so dont sweat it.
