      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!

Store near SeaTac

Thanks guys - that is exactly what I needed to know.

 

Three New Englanders, without Boston accents, will be in Seattle Tuesday, June 4th, after our Rainer attempt. I'll be watching for where pub club pops up and can perhaps buy you guys a beer.

 

(Now there is an idea - cc.com regulars provide information for a fee - drinks at pub club from all of the summer out-of-towners.)

Can you guys recommend a place to get stove fuel, canister or white gas, near the SeaTac airport? As we intend to enter Mt. Rainer National Park via the Highway 410 northeast entrance we will not be passing the guidebook recommended Summit Haus in Ashford.

 

Is there also a recommended place to stay just outside of the park? The White River campground will not yet be open in two weeks.

 

Thanks.

Check out the town of Enumclaw (sp?) it is on the way and should have a sporting goods store and definatly a hardware store. You may be able to sleepin the woods outside the park, maybe across the river on National Forest land.

The birthday cake thing is kind of cool.

 

A quick trip through REI will be enjoyable and provides a backup for a forgotten piece of gear. So I think we will head there, though I hope not to make any major purchase. As far as bottles, I think our group will try to clean the ones we have well enough to pass the get-them-on-the-plane test.

 

Thanks anyway Erik.

if you clean your bottle and fill it with water and take it in your carry on and drink out of it (if they try to take it away), they won't take it....

I don't do that, but I have a friend who does after he got his empty clean bottles removed from his packed and checked suitcase.
