      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!

Story is she injured her back and leg. How many people that injured their back and leg today doing a recreational activity that didn't make the news? The media is in a fast-pace, continuous dry-hump during events like this.

I also wondered how many skiers and snowboarders will sustain similar injuries today at ski areas on Mt Hood.

 

I guess headlines like "Snowboarder bumps noggin on chairlift" doesn't get the same draw.

On the bright side, at least they credited the rescue earlier in the week to the proximity of a doctor, and not his MLU.

More interesting was the guy who was stabbed from behind in the library by someone he did not know.

Talk about an extreme sport. Libraries can be dangerous.

 

I worked at a library about 15 years ago. One day a guy came up to the counter, mumbling unintelligibly. I thought he was just another drunk, but then he turned around and the back of his shirt was soaked with blood. Someone had stabbed him in the bathroom.

 

So, yeah, I'll take the mountain over the concrete jungle anyday.

 

Best wishes to the injured climber and I hope she recovers quickly.

Channel 2 called them on their cell phone in the middle of it all to get the story. On the mountain trying to take care of his wife, waiting on rescuers and trying to save cell battery power and they want to know "hows it going"! The husband was real nice to them. I would not have been.

I'll bet if they had an MLU, they would've pulled the plug and waited and waited and waited and then finally frooze to death. Now that would be an interesting headline --->MLU kills climbing group!

My avy beacon is an electronic signaling device. Does that count?? :crazy: Damn government bastards. Next they will put a tax on renting them too, so they can make some money off us. And what about the mountains that are not set up for a MLU, such as, oh every one but Mt. Hood.....

 

Stupid people............make our government work.........
