sounds like a challenge.


Free beer? of course this can be done. Our great grandparents built the panama fucking canal ... we can drag a keg of beer to the tilly jane cabin. Here's my idea; I show up with my kid's paris toboggan and some webbing, cordage, and rope. Then we lash that thing to however many splitters that it takes to get it up the hill. Those tied in get first beers and revered status. Feel free to improve on this, the important thing is that the beer arrives.

Toward the schwag question, I'd say anything that's useful and not extra weight in the bc would be hella awesome. Then again, whatever you show up with would be bonus!

I can think of lot's of contest opportunities but topping the list I think a beacon search would be relevant and fun.

Big up to the organizers and Next Adventure!

Awesome, thanks Chris. Please make sure to tell your boss he's welcome to come too. Maybe get him out there on a loaner split? 8)

Any and all split-related swag is welcome -- safety gear, gloves and goggles are always way up my list...

For beer, I'm thinking cases is easier than keg but I could be convinced... I found a snomo rental place that'll rent a sled and trailer for $275/day...

In my storage unit of junk I have a 164cm board that I tried to split (got about 1/3rd when blade dulled and I lost my line), an old external frame pack and some 1x4's. In my mind it screams Keg Sled but I don't have the Space or the Tools to do it. However, if anyone with such things is interested and could meet me in the PDX metro area (I'm S-SW burbs) they can have it and maybe you'll have a lighter weight theme appropriate keg transportation device.

Came up with all sorts of crazy shit thinking about this, attachable skates for road travel, repositionable boards so you can angle them to act as a brake assist for downhills. As with everything it all comes down to money and time.

Great ideas guys! I'm workin on the snomobile option, might not even have to rent one.

So who's got a big ass sled that can carry heavy things and be towed by man or machine? Chris, I know Next must have stuff like that, any chance we could borrow something?

yes we have an expedition style sled that we can use. its legit. but it will only attach to one splitter around their waist. it will take some ingenuity and teamwork to get it up there.

that last sidehill to the cabin seems terrible. other options could be pony kegs or just a bunch of cases. either way we got a good relationship with hopworks here in southeast portland.

Sounds good, let's just use the sled from Next and trade off every few hundred yeards or so.

Yeah that last hill will be a beyotch. So worth it tho! Chris, let us know what hopworks can donate. It might be too late to get their logo on the poster, but we can for sure get it on the t shirt.

If there's still a spot in the cabin, I'd love to join in! This sounds like a lot of fun, thanks for organizing!
