      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!

Wow, that's messed up. I hope he pulls through ok. I'm betting they were local idiots, so they shouuld catch up to them. Anyone want to go skiing at Dougan with me?

Strong enough to shout out loudly for help and, according to the story, found below the road "standing up". Now he's too weak to describe his attackers? It's either a very poorly written/reported story, or something is being omitted in print or in fact.

Sorry if you misunderstood; I'm pro-second amendment. If the story plays out as described it will be interesting to see how the anti-gun folks on this site reconcile their orthodoxy with reality. But if attackers like those in the story initially present as friendly and then attack when close in, it is unlikely a handgun will/would have been effective in any event--not many folks are willing to draw a gun on a potential attacker based on "bad vibes" alone. But again, I wouldn't deny anyone (who has not been deemed mentally ill or convicted of a felony) their constitutionally protected right to bear arms.

It is your legal right to openly carry a weapon in the woods.

 

It's also OK to carry a weapon while cross-country skiing: it's called Biathlon.

 

You can also carry a battleax while skiing. Just ask the Vikings.

Yeah, it's called hunting.

 

Too bad there's not a season for meth head criminals though.

 

All meth addicts should be put to death, this includes about half of Snohomish and Pierce counties populations. :laf:

2 people have been detained as material witness's and police are looking for these 2. The news story says: "The Skamania County sheriff's office issued warrants for Michael David Collins and his son Teven David Collins, both Vancouver residents, as suspects in the case.

 

They are believed to be somewhere in the southwestern United States.

 

Skamania County officials are working with federal and state authorities to track them down. "

Pictures to help you on that question Wayne, these are the wanted men pussy assholes:

 

Michael David Collins

and his son Teven David Collins

They beat this poor bastard for no reason until they thought he was dead then they tossed the body into the bushes and left. The end of the news story says "Michael Collins is also wanted for failing to register as a sex offender. "

 

Assuming a court of law determines the fasts are as they appear. Who would argue against the death penalty here? Because if they feel that way, maybe they can keep this violent sex offender in their house and try to personally rehabilitate the asswipe as they system is doing so badly on these kinds of things.

bill, while this thing is a horrible, horrible thing that happened to the skier (and his family), we really should let the wheels of justice determine of these people are guilty or not. they are suspects until proven guilty. there are times when people get thrown under the bus and police get lied to....these guys are suspects. by all means turn them in if you come across them, but its a little early to hang anybody.

Yes, as I get out into far out parts of Skamania county all the time I think and might have been a bit wired there. I meant to say "The alleged perps"....and "the alleged assholes" or something to that effect...thanks for the heads up and the reminder, you are of course correct. Of course, the father and chief role model there appears to be an actual sex offender, as he didn't register for it...so I guess we should actually be saying "The actual asshole convicted sex offender and his alleged son are wanted..." or perhaps something like that ? I'm unsure here. I wouldn't know how to integrate this info either "In January 2001, Michael Collins was arrested after he allegedly led police on an 80 mph vehicle chase, nearly hitting two vehicles, and crashed near Crestline Elementary School, according to The Columbian's files." Thank God the alleged asshole didn't kill any little kids that time.

 

They may be neighbors of Kevbone. Bone?

 

Keep an eye out for this vehicle as well: A black 1998 Ford Explorer Washington license 455YHY, apparently the alleged murderous scum just up and decided to kill him when they stole his car ..he was co-operating, maybe so that he wouldn't talk.
