Hi all, I am trying to find a trip report that was talked about here a while back. A bunch of guys stayed at a remote hut in Alaska for a week or two, and when their trip was about to end without an incident, they decided to try all the drugs they brought on themselves. I seem to remember that the TR was posted in several batches and possibly not on this site. Could you please help me find it? Thanks!
Avshin posted a topic in The Yard Sale[SOLD] I have a Black Diamond Mega Light pyramid tent for sale. Makes a great 4 season shelter - used it for ski touring and spring mountaineering. It has been babied by an ultra-light gear head. This tent is unique in that it has been professionally modified by Jared at Simply Light Designs, an designer and sewer of products made of silnylon, to include Lineloc 3's at each perimeter tie-out (8) and mid-panel tie-out (8) at each seam. The tent has already been seam sealed. I will include 8 three-foot lengths of premium Lawson Glowire cordage. I have had it for two winter seasons and have used it around 20 times. Works great. There is one tiny patch, from a tiny 3mm slice made when cutting off the dang tags before it ever left my living room. The patch is made of tenacious tape and silicone that has been on the entire life of the tent and still holding strong. In all this tent is great - I've used it as a kitchen/lounge and sat 16 people inside comfortably. I've used it at basecamps on Mt. Baker, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Rainier for climbs. I like the design so much I've upgraded to a HMG Ultamid 4 pyramid tent, therefore will let this one go to one lucky buyer. I'd rather not sell the carbon fiber pole, but will if you insist. $225 Shipped, available for pickup in Seattle. Photos on craigslist, but will post on this thread soon: https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/spo/d/seattle-black-diamond-mega-light-tent/6924875039.html And, yeah, I'm that guy trying to sell something on his first post. Haha.
Skis: K2 Shuksanne, 167cm length, waxed, never used. Not once. Pristine showroom condition. Bindings: Fritschi Freeride Pro size small. Mounted to skis for the following boots, also never used. Boots: Garmont SheRide 4-buckle, DynaFit compatible, used a couple of times. Thermo-moldable liners. Mondo size 25.5 / US size 7.5 / Euro size 38 Black Diamond waterproof/breathable gauntlet gloves with removable fleece liners. Used on one (successful!) Rainier summit. Smith ski helmet (women's), size small, gunmetal gray, used on one trip (sorry, no photos of this) Prices: Whole shebang = $550. I'm willing to separate items. If sold individually I am asking: Skis + bindings = $400 Boots only = $120 Gloves = $30 Helmet = $30 This is an ideal ski setup for a woman looking to get into backcountry skiing. The skis are not the cutting edge of design or technology as they have been sitting in a closet for a few years, but they are ideally suited to snow conditions in the Cascades. Selling because of health reasons - my wife thought she was going to get back into skiing but the reality is her touring days are over. New this entire package was $1,750. Can meet downtown Seattle near the central public library weekdays during business hours, or weekends/evenings near the Mount Baker light rail station. Please include your name and phone number when you email me. Cash only in person. I don't circulate much round these parts anymore. Best bet is to email me directly: njbratton AT hotmail DOT com
