Huge props to Chris today on the loaner split WITH some Sparks (though I really think D should have to suffer with slider tracks for his first experience).


Jefe, I used to have a cheapie battery powered mini ipod dock. Not sure if I gave it away when I moved but will look for it around the house tomorrow.

Unfortunately, I have no extra skins but I have a winch!

I'm thinking a crevasse rescue kit could come in handy with the beer. Some rope and pulleys could make a steep stretch a lot easier. Just a thought.


Yes, rope and pulleys! HOMOSAPIENS!!! :rock:

hmmm..... :scratch: half-barrel.. I think, maybe tap the barrel Saturday. After the journey that barrel is about to make. It might become a pressurized bomb. It could be safer, to give it a little more time to settle.

15.5 gals = 124 pints / 30 peeps = 4 pints a peep.

Best not waste a drop. :wink:

That's actually not a bad idea, also we can bury it and let it get cold. I told people in the instructions to bring backup beverages if they want to.

I'm rolling solo from Tigard, planning on making the 2 pm meet up. If anyone wants to carpool shoot me a pm. Pretty much all of Portland is on my way from Tigard. I could take 2 more people w/ gear.

I'm probably leaving Tualatin around 930 and heading down to 205 then out to Happy Valley to pickup a cooking stove and up to 84. I can pickup people from Wilsonville, Oregon City through Gresham. Truck can fit 2 with gear but I might be leaving Sunday a tad earlier than most of the group as I work early Monday morning. I'd like to have any potential riders let me know by Thursday night as there won't be much time Friday.

Be sure to leave a Phone # in the PM!

Dogan
Might want to bring a sharpie and ration beer via wrists ;)

we were in Newton drainage on Sunday. Saw that same avy path. Definitely cool to be in a place you would never be during the winter.

i vote for an alpine start...

Is there still room in the cabin for two more? If so count us in and I'll send the payment over paypal.

Thanks!

Alpine starts should be interesting with Lyrids meteor shower over the new moon weekend.

"Lyrid meteors are typically as bright as the stars in the Big Dipper, which is to say of middling brightness," the website Spaceweather.com writes in a recent skywatching guide. "But some are more intense, even brighter than Venus. These 'Lyrid fireballs' cast shadows for a split second and leave behind smoky debris trails that linger for minutes."
