  1. Another closet cleaning!

    Garmont Argon AT Boots- Used one season, getting a different pair for this season as I no longer will have to skin anywhere. Soles are in great shape, shells and liners as well. I wear a 12, can't find the size on the boot but it says 335mm on the bottom. $200 o.b.o. Outdoor Research Water Bottle Jacket- A little dirty, doesn't smell. $5 MSR Rapidfire Stove- Works like a charm, comes with bag and both sets of foil. $20 obo XL Outdoor Research Crocodile Gaiters- No tears, function is 100% $30 Life Link Shovel- Saw very little use. Used twice to put in a tent. $20 obo Moonstone Gore-Tex Bibs- Size large. I wear a 34-30 and they fit like a proper technical pant. There's some melting on the very bottom of the pant legs (very minimal, doesn't affect function) and a tear in the front that was patched up professionally. They make a great summer alpine bib! Full zip up the leg and through the butt. Email me if you need more pictures. $60 Salomon Boots- Size 46 2/3 (US 12)Still in great shape. $10 Payment through PayPal. Please contact me to discuss shipping. I'm located in Portland Oregon and you're more than welcome to come check it out if you're in the area. What ever doesn't sell is going to eBay in a week.
  2. Great info and articles, hadn't thought of some of these things yet. Some of these guys/gals are crazy!
  3. I ate a lot of spam when I lived in Alaska. Goes well with pilot bread!
  4. Here's the link to the Portland company if anyone is interested. http://theflystyle.com/
  5. Watch 00:31-00:52. Seems that trees aren't a huge issue, fly over them or through them! Just got off the phone with Daniel at Flystyle. They sell an assortment of speed flying and paragliding equipment. Apparently just got some special winch in where they can tow you up to a mile high. Hopefully the weather clears up next weekend, they're going to take me out for my first lesson!! They have a group rate if there aren't some more people who want to give it a try with me. $175/day with the group rate and if you buy a wing system after level one they discount the lesson off of the price. I think my girlfriend might disagree on the awesomeness of this
  6. So it doesn't sound like anyone else has done this? These aren't actually paragliders. They're speed flying wings. Feck/G-Spotter- These speed wing systems are much, smaller ranging from 18 to 8 sq meters. So yes, with harness and wing they weight around 2 kilos. http://www.speed-flying.com/gin-yak Ivan-It's not BASE jumping, from the videos I've seen most of them run off. I'll probably call these guys tomorrow and see what they have. This sounds like too much fun to pass.
  7. I'm all about making the best out of a good hike or climb up a mountain or ridge but have a personal vendetta against taking the same route back down. Yes, I'm lazy. Has anyone tried speed flying down a mountain after climbing it? I've done some research into it and it seems like carrying a 5 lb "paraglider" that would allow you to actually fly back to the bottom seems like well worth it! Apparently skiing down is an option as well. From what I found, a company in Portland called The Flystyle sells these. Might have to check them out and see what they have. Anyone done this? What was your experience?
  8. What a retard! Anyone missing gear? http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/spo/1519380111.html

  14. FS: A whole aid rack?!

    Any time Bill!
  15. FS: A whole aid rack?!

    No, I'm not giving up on climbing... just aid climbing. Now that I work nights it's pretty much impossible and I've ruined enough pairs of pants solo-aiding. UPDATE: Just because i'm "giving up" doesn't mean i'm "giving away". I'm offering great deals on great equipment and ask that you be respectful of that when counter offering. I wouldn't be selling my gear to someone if I didn't think it could hold up. Everything is in great shape, some things better than others. Let me know if you want a picture of anything particular. And of course... I assume no responsibility for how you use any of this should you buy it, especially if you try solo-aiding. Get someone who knows what they're doing to show you what's up.
