  1. Indeed. It will be a sad situation if we're indoors ALL summer. My suspicion is that as this rolls on longer and longer, the guidelines for being outside/getting some exercise will be more and more clear. non-improved sites are not included in the National Forest closures....
  2. Letter from PMR President about CCSO

    That's tough. Sorry to hear about that.
  3. Letter from PMR President about CCSO

    Can you provide some searchable details? Interested.
  4. part of what you pay for in an initial bar tack is the strength testing and statistical analysis/confidence margins that likely won't come from a home shop.
  5. review Denali - Ski Boot Help

    THAT is real pain... When talking about extended time at sub zero F, we shouldn't even be talking about "tight" boots. It should be "Are those boots even snug."

    101 hikes has done everyone a favor and made the Nooksack Cirque hike into a tough hike... ts not! It's flat, trailed, and all season. I guess most just aren't that adventurous.
  7. I'm a PLB guy now. Used to scoff at them, but now I just consider it an extra margin. Still need to have other safety systems in place, but when used in conjunction with a designated reporter, would significantly incrase the chance of a timely rescue.

    or even better... ('cause it'sfor ealz...) I think this guy is a b'ham local...
  10. Looking for specific harness...

    So Gene: what's the "best" way to back up a rappel? prussik above the belay device? autolocking device above the belay device? Rappel deaths seem to have good "gear" solutions if you know the right gear and configuration. Dave
  11. Not to sound like a dumb-ass (oops, too late), but is that Tonasket?
  12. ah yeah, Nooksack ridge. My mistake. last winter (and for several before that) an easy crossing on a log jam.
  13. I'm not sure which crossing you're talking about... at the end of the (summer) driveable road (to get to second half of road/trail), or at the end of the trail/just before entering the cirque (to get to Price Lake/Nooksack Ridge)? At the end of the road, last winter there was a log jam immediately down the trail from the parking lot. Gets you onto a big sand bar, then (sometimes requires) another log jam to cross a braid that shows up in high water. Overall, chill. Last time I was up the trial, I saw some flagging right at the wilderness boundary sign (recently smashed by a snag and (I think) put back up) that (I think) marked a route to a snag across the Nooksack. But I can't remember that part. Know I saw some flagging. But that's only if you're trying to cross the Nooksack to get to Price Lake et al.
  14. NWAC weather graph

    Those customizations make my iphone 4 on 3G choke like NOTHIN! The original kantola graphs worked 100% of the time and quick-like.
  15. NWAC weather graph

    oh yeah! I'm following this because those graph WERE awesome, especially on a low-data phone.
