      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!

what did you do today?

Recommended Posts

I went to Index and ate a major portion of Index whoop ass this morning. Pretty much got spanked by every piece of rock I touched yellaf.gif

I guess that's what I deserved after spending two weeks in the tropical sun drinking margaritas.

left out the best part of my day!

 

7 AM - arrive in mcdonald's drive-through line morbidly hung-over

7:01 AM - force bro-in-law to switch to driver after the vanguards of The Big Burp begin to arrive

7:03 AM - mere yards away from the drive through window, and in full sight of a half-dozen cars in which humble workingmen wait for their meager biscuits on the way to their tedious jobs, i commence w/ the Great Spit

7:05 AM - leaving a great big puddle of orange gunk (mmm - TANG!) by the roadside i pad back into the passenger seat in my mulch-encrusted socks and proudly eat the hashbrowns that have just arrived

Drove over a nail and punctured my tire just outside of Darrington on the way to a climb at 6AM. Try #2 tomorrow AM after a free repair at Les Schwab!

I was flying the middle one. Afterwards we took that thing out and scared the people on the Bainbridge Island ferry by pretending to strafe them.

Hey Ross! wave.gif Just checking in - on the day of your enquiry I was taking it easy, and the day after climbed some cool cracks on Cathedral Ledge. Actually, hot cracks - it was pretty hot that day.

Haha! We saw the donut at the parking area. Sad looking thing. Did ya hit up the Darrington rock fest dude?!

 

We tried to bargain are way in after climbing but they wanted $50/person to watch some dude from Styx play with some loser from Foreigner. Cheap Trick cancelled due to lack of payment. Classic Rock Rocks! I mean sux!

I went to the Killing Fields and saws the bones of people who were murdered by Pol Pot.

 

Wow, I'll bet that was chilling. I didn't know that they left all those people's bones out there after Pol Pot's ouster in the mid-1980s. Did you read Survival in the Killing Fields per my suggestion?

 

I spent a long chilling day at Dachau, outside of Munich, many years ago. I still carry the memory of that day. Just plain frightening.

 

Sorry if I put a wet blanket on anyone's day with this post.
