      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!

REI- Finally, it has happened....

Recommended Posts

Yes, boys and girls, the inevitable has finally occured. The new Fall REI catalog DOESN"T HAVE A SINGLE PIECE OF HARDWARE ANYWHERE IN IT! The transformation to Eddie-Bauer-yuppie-GoreTex-yoga-grrll-style emporium is now complete. I want my freakin' membership fee back.

They are trying to regain their peer status. You don't need "equipment" to free-solo Brass Balls, you know. Pffft.

Did you guys know that they even have some kind of ranger station in there? They're really only a clutch of snaffles and a pit toilet away from the Complete Outdoor Adventure Experience! Soon the REItes will feel no need to visit the highly inferior, crackaddict robber-infested backwoods, and return it to you depraved forest-raping primitives for the gratification of whatever sick pleasures you are addicted to.

Figures REI is just filled with a bunch of left wing wackos who think its cool to wear North face, vote for obama, shop at whole foods, listen to depeche mode (sp) and date gay looking guys with tight pants and spiky hair.

I bought all of my hardware, my last 3 packs, my last 2 pairs of boots, two sleeping bags, assorted clothes, and my last rope at PMS. -Mostly more serious gear.

 

At REI I bought my trekking poles, a lanyard for my work ID card, insect repellent, 5 boxes of Gu (25% off), a bandana, gloves (on sale), a 5-oz. capacity water bottle, a couple of slings, a pair of plastic spoons... -Mostly nickle-and-dime stuff.

:moondance:

 

"Jesus was a Capricorn, he ate organic foods.

He believed in love and peace and never wore no shoes.

Long hair, beard and sandals and a funky bunch of friends.

Reckon they'd just nail him up if He come down again.

 

'Cos everybody's got to have somebody to look down on.

Who they can feel better than at anytime they please.

Someone doin' somethin' dirty, decent folks can frown on.

If you can't find nobody else, then help yourself to me."

What's with Depeche Mode? Was 1988 an atavistic low-water point for you? It's a stupid and much too personally obscure reference. Spit your self-dramatizing bile on something contemporary.
