      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!

I'm a tech at an ISP. Pro- I've got bandwidth to burn, so I can read a lot of tr's of routes I'll never have the time to do. Con- Having only weekends off blows... it's just not enough time frown.gif

Work........Ha Ha Ha..... Not for the last 4 months. With the lurking fear of a job in the near future, if anybody is up for climbing, email me Lucky14956@aol.com! When I do work its in Advertising/Marketing.

When I'm not wasting time on this site I aid in improving productivity as an industrial engineer. I figure if this site ever goes down I will get 34% more done at work.

I'm a fish biologist for the Puyallup Tribe. Usually I'm out playing with salmon. I live a very schizophrenic existance; splitting my life between tossing artificial bugs for cutthroat and swatting real ones while placing a nut. Every so often I am trapped behind a desk at which times I am thinkful for this BB and the diversion it provides!

Johnny, my good friend in Missoula has your job. He plays with fish DNA and flyfishes for a living a couple hours a week. The rest of the time he skis. Bastard. I currently work for the man at a software company, but plan to enter the legal profession so I can be like that lawyer in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Judging by your CASCADECLIMBER.COM profile, it entails accounting!!

I'm a slumlord in Leavenworth, drive a schoolbus during the schoolyear, and build sets for a community theater - never have had a "real" job. Oh, yeah, and play a banjo for a local church choir - go figure...

oh, yeah - and teach a community college course titled "re-inventing yourself" - come visit! I can usually adjust my schedule to accommodate climbing partners...

I work at the Gym in Seattle. It supplements my food and bills while I am in school. I used to climb there alot more before I got a job there. Now when I am done with work I just want to go home, and its the last place I want to be on my day off!

Why am I not out climbing right now? Cause I am too busy blowing off my homework. And all my partners only have weekends off. Some day I fear I will be in their shoes...

I'm a writer. I write and research grant proposals for non-profit organizations when I'm not working on more creative writing projects for myself. It allows me to work at home which I love and I have a flexible schedule so the occasional midweek climb is allowable.

I spent years in school, etc. to get a Ph.D. in the one of the world's coolest subjects and also one of the most worthless!!! Basically, I'm qualified to be an over-educated ditch-digger. On the other hand, I can wake up most mornings laughing my butt off that I actually make a decent living doing this stuff, and on a good year, which is most years these days, I grab more action and adventure than the average Joe will get in a lifetime! And I can climb basically whenever I feel like it! Yee haw! You don't want to know the details because it's too bizarre and everyone thinks I'm making it up when I tell them. Hey! What's for dinner? I'm thirsty!

P.S. My dress for the office is a Hawaiian shirt and no shoes.

P.P.S.S. Haireball! You rule! You made it happen, my brother, and I respect that!!! I'll be drinkin' one for you at the Engine House tonight!!
