      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!

I was in the parking lot of a home repair superstore trying like mad to slam a door closed. A lady in the parking lot walked over, nonchalantly said "you can never force anything," gently closed the door, and then continued on her way.

You gotta find your way back out, too.

I heard it this way;

Never eat at a place called Mom's

Never play cards with a man named Doc

An' never ever fuck with a guy named Baba.

I think Hemingway said this, and it goes something like this, excuse the butchering: Make sure you do everything you said you were going to do while getting drunk the night before. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut the next time.

 

-Still learning that one.
