      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!

you ran my sleeping bag up the trail? (07/30/13)

Recommended Posts

On about that date above, I was assembling my pack in the white river campground parking lot headed for the Emmons glacier.

 

Somehow, when I turned my back, my sleeping bag rolled away quietly (refusing a summit attempt) and it went unaccounted for as I closed up my pack.

 

Off I went. I'd say two or three miles up the trail, you came jogging up with sweat beading off your brow, asking if someone had lost a sleeping bag?

 

I immediately recognized my bag, and was in a mild state of shock that you found it and were now placing it back in my hand. Reeling a bit, I remember thanking you, but didn't have the wherewithal to ask for your number or email so I could at least buy you a 6 pack of your favorite beverage, or something similar.

 

So if you're out there...let me know? (you know the color and make of the sleeping bag)

 

That was huge, you saved my bacon! Thanks.

I would have thrown it in my car and laughed all the way home at the thought of you shivering uncontrollably all night.

So you're saying it wasn't you then?

This is a wonderful story. It is great to always hear good news. People are great.

Taking into account the item, and his effort to get it back to you, I would have offered more than a 6-pack.

He's just saying that he is a selfish and inconsiderate person, and obviously not a karma farmer.

Perhaps, like the widow in the temple, a six pack is all he has to his name (aside from climbing gear), and he's offering all he has in gratitude.

Fair enough, I'll give you that.
