      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!

Airport security

Recommended Posts

You have to love our unbelivably ineffective airport security. Flying out of Anchorage yesterday for a flight to Seattle, i get stopped at the gate security check point. Due to Alaska airline 50lb weight limit my carry on is packed full of random bits of climbing gear. After being patted down and searched by the gate dude, I am asked if they can search my bag. I agree because I have no choice. They first pull out a bunch of smelly clothing which I kind of chuckle at and comment "that smells a bit, sorry about that". Next they pull out a bunch other random shit (cammera, film, ipod) and they find a cigarette lighter. They confiscate the dangerous item, and then place my bag back through the xray. Still not good enough so they continue searching. By this time I am getting a bit bored with the whole thing. Next they pull out my piss bottle. I anouce in a loud voice to the guy I am with "Hey Gordy! They found my piss bottle" Just so they know what they are getting into. Fairly unimpressed, the guy puts the piss bottle down and continues searching. Finally they find my bag with extra crampon front points, a 3.5 inch long cresent wrench, and an allen wrench. The guy takes the wrenches out of the bag and informs me that tools of any sort are not allowed in my carry on. He then takes my 3 inch brand new (sharp) crampon points an puts them back in my bag. In the end I was not able to stab the pilot and hijack the plane because they took the allen wrench I was planning on doing it with. Damn! Next time maybe.

I've been working on a profile based on archenemys posts. I believe it is a woman posing as a man posing as a woman.

First, I thought Snugtop, then Icegirl, then Minx.

 

Now, I suspect that Archenemy is an undercover snaffle bent on the destruction of cc.com and all that is good in the world.

 

I have a narrow list of suspects.

Recent information has lead me to believe that archenemy is actually Angelina Jolie.

 

that's much closer to the truth than her being snugtop

jeezus does "highly unlikely" mean "know for sure". No, it does not. But I would say there is maybe a 1 in 10 chance that someone here is wearing a polished mirrored helmet.
