      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!

Yeah! What's up with the weather forecasters! Sounds like an easy job to me. You never have to be accountable for what you say and it is not a bad thing that you are completely off as everyone always cusses you anyways. Here's my weather forecast for the next year:

From December-April it will be mostly cloudly in the Willamette Valley with periods of light rain on and off with his in the 60s and lows in the 30s. From April to June, partly sunny with scattered showers throughout the day his in the 70s lows in the mid-upper 40s. From June to October Sunny all day every day with no rain, no clouds, his in the hi 70s to low 80s lows in the mid to upper 50s with a cold spell in between or occasional thundershower in the late afternoon. Oct to December, mostly sunny with periods of clouds and light showers, his in the hi 50s to low 60s getting cooler in the evenings. Now pay mea salary so I can go climb for the winter somewhere WARM!See ya at Smith- that is unless the weather report changes for the 100th time this week.

Your description sounds like a Washington State politician (or any, I guess).

 

Nice forecast, you ought to be able to pull in about $100 large for that.

Public Service Announcement from the friendly folks at AmazingCo, Inc.

 

ATTENTION:

 

For the last time, the rock at Smith is welded tuff or simply "tuff," and not, as so many of you seem intent on calling it "tuft," which would be a small clump of hair, fur, or feathers, as one might find on Trask's bedpost.

 

Thank you, and have a pleasant day!

The rock at Smiffy Rox has been hereby designated "tuftytuf" and will remain so until we find an even more appalling name for it.

 

Hey DFA have you ever climbed Squaw Rock or any of those obscure pinnacles off in the distance there??

Nope. The Doctor has ventured 'round to The Face of the Monkey and various other crags on the back side o' Smith, and out to the Upper Gorge, but ne'er to the many satellites of Smith. Not many bolts out there, you see. The Doctor had his eye on The Product for a while, which is out that way, but some friends recently tried it, and reported that it was wicked hard for the grade, and that it passed through a couple bands of highly suspect rock known as "choss." Thus, the Doctor will now probably not venture out there any time soon.

Clay pigeons are aerodynamic and launch nice with a launcher. Hippies aren't as aerodynamic, they tend to scream a lot when hit, and don't load well into a pigeon-thrower.

SO, anyone want to comment on the forecast? Check out Noaa's web forecast Looks like snow and rain? I'll give a call to some firends who are out there today and get back to anyone hesitating on going out there. Hey GregW, if it is raining, why don't we just find a good place to do some duck hunting? Then we could feed all our cold and shivering brethren at the Grasslands! Blue Grouse wouldn't be a bad idea either. We could train Cavey's pup in the process!

That would be cool, but I won't be making it. I am planning a winter trip to Smith, so we can hook up then.

Or take the stickclip off the harness, replace with 12 gauge, and have fun with all the pigeons in the huecos on Buckets. [big Grin]
