      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!

The storm in Colorado

Recommended Posts

I just drove from Vail to Denver in the middle of this goddamn storm. I thought I was going to die. It took me six hours. The mixed climbing in Vail is awesome. That is all.

no shit, now Im thinkin I was lucky that my trip got canned.

 

I was suppose to be in Ouray right before the first storm hit, then needing to travel to denver area on xmas. My flight out would have been tomorrow.

Sounds to me I would have spent a lot more time on the road and in the airport than climbing and with family.

Dude, I drove over Roger's Pass in the middle of a huge blizzard in a Ford Fairmont with 130K miles on it, probably THE worst handling vehicle ever invented. Between the highway hypnosis, the semis, and the fear of doing multiple 360s on steep, cliffy grades, I share your pain.

 

Enjoy the storm's aftermath. It must be some SWEET skiiing.

I'm so confused by your post. What does Fallujah have to do with anything? So I'm already bored with being stuck in Denver and it's only been like three hours. The question is, will I make it down to Durango for New Years Eve? I sure hope so.

You will make it to Durango, Allah willing, my son. If Allah is angry...you will be stuck in Colorado Springs.

So true, but if I do get stuck in the springs, will I get to meet my hero and avatar photo model Ted Haggard?
