  1. Pissing on the summit

    I was camping at Illumination saddle a few years ago, and decided to dig up some snow to melt for water. Well, that seems fine and all, and as I dug a small pit to get my snow ( you know, that surface snow is shit, so I wanted "older" snow to melt) I found a "blue bag" full of feces. I had already been brewing up the snow into water at that point. I swear, after I found that, my nalgene smelled like I was huffing a Jenkem bag. I gagged with every drink. BTW, if you piss on anything on the west side of Hood, it goes into the Sandy River. Not like that matters anyways, since I piss in the Sandy when I go fishing around Dodge Park... And I am not the only one.
  2. Tilly jane A-frame

    Yeah, well, you know there is a stairway and a door on the upper level that is accessible from where the old pit toilets where. I wonder if that door is locked too? If not, there ya go.
  3. Tilly jane A-frame

    They lock it now? Hmm... I was up there around this time last winter, and they had signs up about the reservation system, but the cabin was unlocked like it always has been in the past.
  4. Spantiks for splitboarding (and climbing)

    I just looked at that Spark Boot. Sweet. Finally someone is doing it. But unlike you, I prefer the hard boot. I feel that I am more connected to my ride in my AT boots. I do not miss that sloppy soft boot feel. That shit is for the pipe and park riders. For serious big mountain riders, the AT or hard boot is the best choice. But then again, these are just Opinions. Yours might vary.
  5. Spantiks for splitboarding (and climbing)

    LOL!!! I didn't make it. They sell it. But I did have to do some modifications to my existing splitboard. It originally was a S-Series that I re drilled for the Voile pucks and used a MTN plate set up. The Scarpa Denali series of boots are what I rock. They have a full vibram sole, use step in crampons, and hike OK. I like the way they ride too.
  6. Spantiks for splitboarding (and climbing)

    Meh.... Go with AT boots!!! WAAAAAYYY better than any strap set up... Plus, easy in and out of the bindings. One lever flip ant they are on or off...
  7. Mt. Hood Resort Skiing

    I am glad to hear that I am not alone. Ever since the Douchpatrol at meadows threatened to call the Sheriff on me and my buddy for skinning up, I vow I will never give those fuckers any of my money ever again. No one has said anything when I have skinned up either at ski bowl or Timberline...
  8. Touring packs

    BD Packs suck for carrying a snowboard. Period. Maybe in an a-frame with the split split, but not in board mode. I use a Dakine Poacher which can carry a board in both split mode, and board mode very well. about 38L in capacity, and holds my Voile shovel very well, as well as slots for Ice axe etc. and hydration sleeve in the should strap. I also use a Dakine Heli Pro for day trips which has the same features but a smaller capacity. Sort of heavy, but gets the job done nicely for me.
  9. Hood Pics

    A spot familiar to most who has slimbed anything on the west side.
  10. Hood Conditions

    Well, it's all covered in snow, finally.
  11. Socialism and The World Cup

    Mexicans from Brazil?
  12. Hood - Fatality

    In a whiteout, yes. On a nice day, you'd have a hard time getting a fresh line if you use a "glisse descent device"... (read: ski or snowboard) Just curious, where they attempting a climb of the Coe Headwall, or did the victim fall from snowdome down to the Coe? The news report did not specify. Sorry to hear of the accident.
  13. Summer storage?

    I usually wash off and then spray a bit of WD40 to my crampons after ever outing. That way I avoid some rust etc. I do the same with my axe/tools. Skis and snowboards, I just iron on a thick layer of all temp wax and do not scrape it off so it will keep the bases from drying out. Skins get a layer of glop stopper skin wax, and I try to clean out all the crap (rocks, sand needles etc) from the glue bases, and store them in my basement where it tends to be cooler, nice and glue sides touching. I do not use a skin saver, but some people prefer to, since it makes pulling the skins apart easier. Ropes, Ummm, they sit in the bottom of a rubbermaid bin with all the other crap on top.
  14. Dino Rossi Scar Speculation Thread

    I hit him in the side of his head with a shovel back in Jr. High. Seriously.
  15. 17 years and still no CUP !!!!!!!

    Bike racing is pretty gay.
  16. Cloud Cap road access?

    The Forest Service says NO...
  17. Where were you?

    I was a 7 year old living in Copenhagen, Denmark. I had no clue anything happened, until a month later, it was all in great detail in my Dad's National Geographic Magazine. I was so intrigued at looking at the pictures of the mountain before and after. I think it was my first realization of the awesome power of nature.
  18. Snowboarding in your mountaineering boots?

    I just hike and climb in my AT boots. Works great. I tried :a Sportiva Nepal Extremes and Koflach Plastics with a tele liner, and really though the ride from both sucked. Went the hard boot route, and never looked back.
  19. Conditions on Hood SS?

    I skinned up the SS on saturday in a whiteout. Soft snow above the palmer, and that's where I turned around because of visibility. When I was pulling off the skins, I was postholing up to my knees, so you might want skis or some other floation device. The snow on the ride down was fantastic, until I hit the mashed potatoes around silcox hut, from there the ride sucked.
  20. that's why it is so cool that the Oregon Sno Park pass works there as well. And the Oregon one is WAYYYYYYYY cheaper.
  21. Boots and Backpacks for sale.

    I have some stuff I am looking to unload that I just don't use anymore (or at all) and thought that someone around here could use them and get a deal in process. Gregory Shasta pack. This thing is HUGE, 90L huge. Has a seperate pocket for a sleeping bag that can be detached so it can act like a normal toploader. Water bottle holder, mesh pocket, adjustable suspension, and a top pocket that has nifty straps that convert it into a fanny pack. Size large. $150 or best offer. Also looking to sell a Black Diamond Speed 30L pack. Pretty basic, no frills pack. Has attached top pocket, ice axe holder, hydration sleeve/port. $65 La Sprotiva Nepal Extreme. Size 45. I have only worn these a couple times climbing Mt. Hood. Nice boots, but I usually climb no in my AT boots, so these just gather dust. These are the older version, not the "Evo" model. Practically brand new, no funk or odd odors. I think I even have the original tags somewhere for these if you need them. $150 Garmont Pinnacle boots. These are lighter summer type boots Size 11/45. Has rear heel welt and I have even used my step in sabertooth's on these and it worked fine. Good shape, stock footbeds. No funky smells or odors. Last but not least, a North Face shovel pocket. it's supposed to fit a large variety of North Face packs. Well, it does not fit a Spire 38 pack. My mistake. $10 I prefer cash and to deal locally within the Portland area. Not super interested shipping. PM me here if you want to set up a deal.
  22. Where's the snow?

    what bluebird crap are you talking about? it's been mixed showers all day long here in PDX, even a few sprinklings of hail to boot.
  23. Selling G12 newmatic crampons

    I hope not, because no one will buy them. Even at $90 that's a little high for used crampons.
  24. Boots and Backpacks for sale.

    Yeah I hear what you're sayin'. But on those Garmont's the tag does indeed say 10 1/2 UK, 11 US, 45 EUR. sooo... And I normally wear 11, and the LaSports in 45 fit me pretty good.
  25. [TR] Mt St Helens - Worm Flows 3/20/2010
