      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 retarded so I have a dumb question. Is this only online stuff? Or can I go to the store and get me my kayak? and my new tele boots? And a new cam? And a lobotomy.

Sorry Arch, small print: "kayaks, tele boots, cams, anything practical or that you are interested in and lobotomys are excluded."

:)

 

 

At least thats the way it felt when I was pwn'ed and denied from using the 20% coupon there when I bought my GPS unit.

I don't think so. The items that have a sale price next to them were already marked down. Not all items have a sale price. The annual sale price will be up Friday as is stated at the top of the page.

If you're a member, you got a catalog in the mail showing everything on sale and the coupon. If you didn't get it, there are catalogs in the store you can look through - they honored the sale prices/coupon in the store today (a day early).

Thanks for letting me know that at 10pm! Oh well, I'm going today after work. I'm usually not an REI fan, but I am one today!

Hey sorry - I just hadn't logged in yet or I coulda shared the secret with you :)

That's sweet of ya!

Turns out, there was no mad rush at REI. Guess the economy really is affecting people's buying habits.

I wasn't too overwhelmed/overexcited about the sale once I saw it though. There really wasn't all that much on sale that I was looking for. I didn't realize how seasonal that place is--they didn't have any ski stuff available. Bummer.

But, I did get a wetsuit that fits! Again, wasn't on sale, but I used that 20% off for members deal.

Did anyone else go? See anything that just shouldn't be missed? I'm not a good in-person shopper, so I could have missed something obvious that every person simply must have.

Like you, I found it underwhelming. I almost bought a cam, but 20% off isn't all THAT spectacular and I didn't want to wait in line.

 

So you didn't buy that kayak? (Maybe not a bad call. I used to make a couple of trips a year and found renting wasn't a bad option.)

I didn't have anyway to bring it home. Today I found a rack for my pickup truck that I am going to call on.

 

I'm going to go the rental route first though. That way I can try different things out and find out what I like. Also, I wouldn't mind getting a used one first so I don't have all that added stress around destroying a beautiful new piece of gear.

That's one of the beauties of renting (no worries about destroying it).

 

I haven't boated much for several years, but there used to be a real difference between plastic and fiberglass, where general consensus was that plastic boats were tougher but flexed such that you lost energy so that they were slower. Had I listened to all of my friends, I would have bought a fiberglass boat because virtually everybody agreed they were better. But after a couple of trips where people hit rocks or otherwise damaged their boats I started renting plastic boats for trips on the outer coast where we expected to hit rocks and wanted to be able to drag them onto a rock landing without being careful. I would have been unhappy with my purchase had I bought one.

Did you go down to the "gear garage"? That's where all the ski stuff is. It got moved down there at end of season.

 

OK, I have to admit it...I just started working there :whistle: I'm new in Seattle and it's a great place to meet outdoorsy people while I'm getting settled. If you're in there returning your 15 year old summit pack because a strap *finally* broke, yep, I'm your girl...I'm at customer service. Be nice! And don't mess with me :eveeel: Seriously, though...come by and say hi if you're in the store - my name's Lisa

Speaking of ski stuff. I went in Friday and found the last Covert 32L Avalung retail $200, on sale for $100. A covert w/o the avalung is $110. Score!

 

G3 skins are on sale. Close to 30% off.

Hey now :( , I got out on rock last Sunday. BTW, speaking of crap, added to my Metolius Master Cam rack by buying a #4 and using the 20% off coupon.
