      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!

Great time! I left at 11:45, around the time the guys started talking about how hard it would be to cut your arm off with a pocket knife. frown.gif

I think I was responsible for that yellaf.gifyellaf.gif

 

Good slides, good food, and good conversation about hacking one's own limbs off around the fire. yellaf.gifyellaf.gif

JayB, Mattp, AlpineK and myself finally got out on bail an hour ago. Seems burning down the shelter (even if it was just an accident) is considered arson. Go figure. rolleyes.gif Guess we won't be having another BBQ there.

Thanks all, for helping make the event a success!! I drove by there this a.m. and I picked up somebody's kiddie juice cup but the place looked OK.... maybe they'll let us come back some time.

That was a fine event! Thanks very much to MattP and ev'ryone else! Well worth the somewhat lengthy drive from PDX. Can't wait 'til the next event; y'all SeaWA folks blow the Portland Pub Club crowd out of the water, no question. DFA will bring some of his special recipe roast chicken next time, and we can talk bolts and roto-pockets.

 

Bling, bling! thumbs_up.gif

Thanks for the burgers GregW. Very tasty. Nice to see so many new faces. We should definately do it again. How about June 18. Celebrate the solstice and the start of summer...and the end of another quarter of school.

 

The place is packed on summer eves, that's why I suggest an early June date. If it's a scool night it may be less crowded and we will stand a better chance of getting a shelter. ( If we decide on Magnison again) Distel32 suggested Carkeet, on the sound at about NW105th.

I found a couple yellow slings--one sewn, one tied. Let me know if you want them back.

 

Since I'm short on words and sense today, I'll just let the pictures tell the story of the evening.

 

NOTE: If you would like all evidence of your presence at this debauched debacle destroyed--including any photographic evidence, GPS plots, or witness statements--please send a check or money order to Dan -. He can make sure nobody can prove you were there. Then, if anyone asks you if you attended this infamous event, you can claim such rumors are "unofficial and unverified" at best.

 

The evening started off with the standard ritual baptism of first-time lurkers. I believe this is the honorable Mattp presiding over the dunking.

The food was excellent. Rumor has it GregW killed this wild boar in the hinterlands near Gold Bar with nothing but a #5 stopper. That's badass! He used a recipe from Ted Nugent's "Kill it and Grill it" book to cook this monster up. The Before:

The climbers in attendence last night were a hungry bunch. The After:

After stuffing our faces with roasted pig, we played some games and such. Here is Tangled up in Blue psyching herself up for one CC.com tradition:

This is Ehmmic. She was trying to prove that you can keep your head underwater indefinitely by lowering the air pressure inside your head to the point where you can actually inhale oxygen through your rear end. Most of us were skeptical at first, but after a half hour, even the doubters were convinced.

For those new lurkers who chose to forego the baptism-by-lake, there was another option available....(This person has sent a check to Dan -, and thus their identitity shall remain a mystery, their presence at this event entirely unverifiable).

Even the normally reclusive Trask showed up and brought a date. I'm sure he got some funny looks driving down I-5 from Snohomish county:

For entertainment, after dinner we separated into sport climbers and trad climbers and had a short riot. This is Fence Sitter, being cheered on by his mates, lobbing something in AlpineK's direction.

Of course it's all fun and games until AlpineK breaks out the chainsaw...

At that point, we called off the riot, had a group hug, and went back to drinking and standing by the bonfire.

It's hard to believe those shelters are not more flame resistant, but it did make for a warm cheery fire on an otherwise cold and windy night.

All in all a very entertaining evening!

It was great to meet so many of you, especially all you Trasks. I never knew so many people would share the same name. A grrreat thanks to all the people involved setting up this event. Was it really all MattP's doing?

 

Cheers bigdrink.gif
