      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!

Mike Gauthier -- Loose Cannon?

Recommended Posts

Hey Mike, nice article on you in the Oregonian. Keep up the good work. What did you think of the article? Did they get it right?

 

It was very wise for you to describe yourself as a loose cannon before someone else got to it.

Saw Mike on the MRNP Centennial Video on PBS last night. Modest, down-to-Earth, shows absolutely zero contempt to those he risks his own well being to rescue. Pretty unique these daze. Thanks Mike

With the recent helicopter crash and rescue on Rainier, it's timely that kudos go out to not only Gauthier but all rangers and yes, even those pesky mountain rescue folks. Yes mountaineering is fun but of course can have very serious consequenses. Thanks in advance for any rescue services that may ever be required by anyone, anywhere (I'm hoping to build up good Kharma points here). [Cool]

Mike,

Too bad there's not more "loose cannons" like you. Thanks for all you do. May things quiet down for you and you get some days off!

 

Cheers, Steve [big Drink]

Yeah Mike - I'd like to second pindude. The end of the article seems to indicate you could use some days off. Take a vacation far from climbing this fall. How about Paris? Go see the worlds best art museums and have an espresso at an outside cafe. You seem to like art and the air fares are cheap in winter. You can find a cheap hotel in the “Let’s Go” book. But more importantly perhaps, you can’t see any mountains from anywhere in Paris. But if you can’t resist, THE MOUNTAINS are only a three hour high-speed train ride away.

 

As a self-reliant climber, I am not going to say your work is indispensable. But you should know that your book that provides concise information and your rescue efforts above all are very much appreciated.

Big Wave Dave - How did you find yourself here?! Are you living in Portland now? Small world. We should meet up some day, if only to say we did. [smile]
