      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Want to help a climber from France around Seattle?

Recommended Posts

Received this e-mail:

From: richard.fournier@generale-des-eaux.net

Date: Mon, 10 Feb 2003 20:04:03 +0100

Subject: contact

 

Hello, my name is Richard Fournier, I'm 32 years old and I'm living in France near Lyon.

 

I would like to spend 2 weeks in Washington state at end of june, to visit Seatlle and to climb Mount Rainier. But I have no contact and noone I know in Seatlle.

 

So I'm looking for someone who can receive me and guide me for the first days, to find transport, a camping and the way to go to Mount Rainier National Park, and next to Seatlle.

 

Can you help me ?

I hope soon because I have to reserve a fly from Paris to Seattle.

 

Thank you very much for your help !

 

R Fournier

If you are interested in making contact, send an e-mail. Maybe he'll reciprocate when you travel to Europe. I don't know anything about this person, just passing on the request.

Richard Fournier replied today.

 

He says that he has summited a glaciated peak of 6310 m in Ecuador, even though he doesn't consider himself to be an experienced climber. He wishes to take one of the easier routes up Mt. Rainier. The high altitude he expects will be hard but he is in good physical condition.

 

His schedule has not been established yet. He is still looking for a flight on Air France where he can use his frequent flyer miles. Next, he requires an inexpensive place to stay in the Seattle area.

 

Does anyone have an extra room they would like to let cheap for a couple weeks?

Now, now, Dan. You have to differentiate the man from his government. I'm sure Monsieur Fournier supports the U.S. in its war against Iraq. Not!

Sexual_Chocolate, you have all the information I have. His e-mail address is on the original post. Send him a message with an offer to let. His visit would be for about two weeks, the last week in May through the first week in June.

I just got an e-mail from Richard. He is definitely coming. He still needs a room to rent. At least a couple of you have mentioned you had rooms to let for a couple weeks. Please contact him so he can make his final arrangements: richard.fournier@generale-des-eaux.net

 

He is still looking for a group to join. I'd take him up, but I have commitments already that week.

Brian,

 

I just emailed him. I should be able to hook him up. Just hope he's a cool dude and doesn't walk around everywhere in pink spandex shorts. Maybe he's the French Spiderman dude that climbs buildings. The Space Needle could be his next target?

Trask, you typify the "Ugly American". We should welcome foreign visitors and show them that Americans are friendly and kind.

Except for canadians. That country was started by Royalist Americans who didn't have the foresight to sign on to the A Team.

 

BTW, as for the French, there wouldn't be a USA without them. Their money, Navy, and Lavoisier's gunpowder saved the rebels.
