      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!

A new species?

"Yes sweety?"


"Those people on the hill wearing tight neon clothes, are those gapers daddy?"


"Yes honey, those are gapers."

Norman, I'm shocked. You're the last person I would have thought to be trolling through the "Spray," let alone peddling this kind of trashiness...


"First, find a small whole (about half and inch to an inch in diameter) and stick your finger in it. If you feel a tounge move away quickly, you have found a clam. Quickly dig out a whole and grab the clam before it borrows deaper into the mud."


And this...


"Horseneck Clams (Gaper Clams) are larger than your ordinary clam. Typically a nice size Horseneck will have a shell that measures six to eight inches."


Not to mention...


"Gaper clams are edible and are heavily fished at spring tides. They are commonly infected with larval tapeworm cysts, but these are harmless to humans."


I certainly welcome raising the bar here with an exercise in taxonomy or descriptions of endemic organisms, but I'm on to your little game, I'm afraid.

If it was real cc.com species they would be Horsecock clams not horseneck clams. You sure that's not a typo? [HORSECOCK]
