      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!

come'on mike, i was figuring you'd have luther wright n' the wrongs the wall revamp?

 

was thinking of you 2day boy - did a route at ozone i figured you give at least negative 1 star to! plus another .12 you might even give a reluctant 1/2 star to (the fact that i'd even be able to lead to the top, one way or the other, being the biggest turn-off) :)

They my be commercial production sellout pieces, but I've enjoyed some of the later Emmy Lou Harris releases. Its a long way from Hank Williams to there, though.

Hey Kevbone, I'll bet if you lightened up a little bit, you'd really dig on Chet Atkins, or Merle Travis. Phenomenal guitar players.

I spent too many long hours in a hot stationwagon listening to my parents' 8 track cassettes of country and western to ever be able to hear this music without wanting to retch.

That everything I love about country music.

 

Reminds me of Lucinda-

 

Low hum of voices in the front seat

Stories nobody knows

Got folks in Jackson we're going to meet

Car wheels on a gravel road

Cotton fields stretching miles and miles

Hank's voice on the radio

Telephone poles trees and wires fly on by

Car wheels on a gravel road

oddly, my strongest, most nostalgic connections to country music come from living in a little bavarian village that reeked of cowshit (a smell that since has always deeply reminded me of home and good times climbing hills and tramping about through dark woods)

 

i also have a silly mental connection between john denver and the fucking autobahn!

"The Essential Waylon Jennings" is the best country compliation of all times. Ever.

Anyone who doesn't know that isn't fit to call himself a redneck.

Jennings, Cash... - o/s country music was great! Country music now? It's all bubble gum! HATE IT!
