      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!

edited by sobo to add: DOH! Just noticed the date on the last post above. But seriously, this REI thing was just last week or so, like December 16th or sump'in.


There was also a recent article in the Seattle Times in the outdoor section (Off Trail or somesuch section??) that said that REI was also collecting serviceable tents, parkas, and clothing for the Pakistan earthquake victims. There was to be a presentation by three or four Mountain Gods (Big Lou, Wickwire, Swenson, Viesturs, etc.) with a $10 suggested donation, and to bring your goodies in for shipment to Pakistan. It was being organized through the Pakistan Mountaineering Club or something like that.


I took some stuff to my local REI here in the Dustbowl, but they didn't know what I was talking about. confused.gif
