      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!

You do what you gotta do I guess. I wish someone would pay for me to go on expeditions. If they're gonna give me free computers or a car...that's just a bonus.

It's called "endorsement". Heck, if I could get endorsed for a climb to get all its requisite expenses paid for, I'd let any place endorse me. I'd even let Microsoft endorse me.

So, Ed Viesturs is having his next excursion funded or partially funded by Microsoft?

Mr. Viesturs can improve his climbing ability. But Microsoft Windows will always suck. If climbers locked up as much as Windows, there wouldn't be any climbers left. They'd all be in a pile down below on the talus.

Depends and a harness, now that is a look!

And think about it, no pooptube, no need to stop, just climb, climb, shit, climb...hmmm

anyhoo, I say if you can get free stuff for endorsing something and it isn't like a euthenasia kit for home use then more power to ya. If you have issues with the company or it's policies then don't endorse it and don't buy it, real simple.

mikerP.S.-see ya at JTree this weekend you posers!

Question is: who's endorsing who?

Viesturs: "Hey Gates, I'll say I use your product [who doesn't?], if you give me the money I need for my next big expedition."

Gates: "Sounds good. Be sure to wear the Microsoft logo on your helmet when you try for K2's summit."

V: "Does it matter then? Who's gonna see me? Besides, I don't think I'll wear a helmet for K2."

G: "Then be sure to wear the logo on your thermal underwear."

V: "But I won't be wearing any underwear. Never do."

G: "Damn! Uh, can I get my money back?"

dude, you ALL know the real reason for the endorsement is because Viesturs wants to hook up super phatty computer shit so he can quit climbing and spend all his time here becoming a master cascade SPRAYER! [laf][laf][laf]

...and i agree, if i was a world class climber, not some fucking punter like i am, i'd let depends or castle super store or whoever sponsor me if it meant more $$ for more climbing!

peace.
