      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!

This Week's ALPINE BUDDY

Recommended Posts

As we all know, this web-site generates a real mix of ill and good will. In attempt to tip the balance a little more toward the latter, I think it would be nice once in awhile to add some appreciative comments about some of the good folk out there. Today, I would like to nominate Matt P. as this week’s Alpine Buddy.A few days ago, “pope” referred to Matt P. as “effortless cool”. I agree. For those of you who have been going to those Pub Club things, you will know that Matt P. is often the rare sober voice of reason and regularly offers excellent climbing advice. In honor of this fine gentleman, I would like to give a few examples of why I think Matt P. is cool:

Matt P. is so effortlessly cool that he coaches Eskimos.Matt P. is so effortlessly cool that people “in the know” consider him the sixth member of the Rat Pack.Matt P. is so effortlessly cool that he’s been approached to be the national spokesman for Altoids.Matt P. is so effortlessly cool that the Cheetos Cheetah takes notes.Matt P. is so effortlessly cool that the hole in the ozone layer doesn’t form over his house.Matt P. is so effortlessly cool that Brad Pitt calls him for advice about babes.Matt P. is so effortlessly cool that many prominent rappers are changing their names accordingly, for example, “Vanilla Ice” is now “Vanilla Matt P.”; “Ice Cube” is now “Matt P. Cube”.

Keep up the good work, amigo!. See you some Tuesday. - aloha, Dwayner

My "alpine buddy" is Retrosaurus, for keeping the overzealous bolters in check throughout NCW. There is comfort to be had knowing Retro is around to police my favorite areas. AND you've just got to admire a guy who drives three hours to Washington Pass, leads all the pitches on Liberty crack and drives home the same day. In addition, he leads ice I struggle to follow and cruises 5.11 cracks in mid-winter. Plus, he's a great Dad to three kids. Here's a riddle for you. What do you call Retro when he rolls his kayak trying to follow me in 5 ft. seas?

A wet-nurse. grin.gif" border="0 Made myself laugh.

Sorry, you'd have to know him to get this.

Matt P. is so effortlessly cool that the first time I rode in his truck, I found a can of whoop-ass on the floor. It was an actual can! He claimed it was just a sports drink he bought at a 7-11, but I think it was his secret spinach.

Matt P is so effortlessly cool that on a climb up Blueberry Hill he claimed to be packing lunch for both of us and I needn't bring anything. When we got to the top he pulled out a bag of meat and a cigar. Seriously, bag-o-meat. No pre made sanny from the wife, no multi-grain slices of select loaf. Just meat and smoke.

Matt P is so effortlessly cool that his topo of Dreamer is the only one worth bringing and he gives it to you for free.

There are countless other reasons why Matt P is so effortlessly cool.

Right on Matt P! I can't think of a better "CC.com Alpine Buddy."

Mattp is so effortlessly cool that even if he tries to be a dick he just comes off as being standoffish.

Mattp is so effortlessly cool he he will only do uncredited voiceovers for commericials.

Mattp is so effortlessly cool that he has been asked by the Hawaiian Bureau of Tourism not to return.

It's funny how some people are so brave on the internet but then when they find you standing there next to them on the ledge they tend to just shut right the fuck up and never make mention that they post on this site. My guess is that you'd be one of those....

Shit yeah! You ain't kidding. If you guys are as scary in real life as your anonymous net personas are on CC.com I'd be quiet as a meek little girly mouse. I'd try to be totally anonymous and not use my real name.

Chuck

p.s. I was serious about the "scary" shit.

I have no issues with cool people that understand I am mostly having fun. Its the aholes like Lamebitch that will lie there and bleed belly up if they talk shit when I aint even talking to or about them. My guess is he dont want any cuz I will snap his spine like a twig. No problems with you Chuck....

BTW a list of people I am scared of:panther Charlie

Mattp is cool because he has good beta and NEVER sprays, and he is always interested what others have to say, even if it from a different perspective than his. He shows up to the Pub Clubs and always is engaging in conversation on all levels. Go Matt.

In the favorite climber's booze discussion, Matt P. comments as follows, thus once again demonstrating that he is effortlessly cool: "Personally, I prefer scotch, fifteen years old, with an icicle in it." Sho beats my Mickey's with the Vienna Sausage backwash!

A serious question (I'm looking for help):

How the hell do you keep so up on this damn board? my last post wasn't up but a minute and you had replied. Do you have some sort of "new message" alert?
