Thinking about getting a helicopter drop off at the summit. Anyone want to go in on this with me? It will eliminate all the boring hiking and climbing stuff and we'll be back in time for the buffet. Let me know!

Sounds like fun, only if there's heat in the chopper!

You jest, but I have done just that. Skinned up the Glade Trail and bivied at about 8000' on the Zig Zag Glacier, and humped the split up to the summit the next morning.

The Real real real climbers ride a bike from Portland to timberline, and sleep in the climbers cave. The next morning they climb the Wyeast route, and ride their bikes home the same day.

(I am not this crazy, but read a TR on CC.com of a couple of guys that did just that.)

Those guys were a bit, "crazy," weren't they? All relative, of course, but, as I recall, they went very late in the season, Aug, or Sept. and, I think one guy fell into a crevasse, or some such. . . A bit radical.

Yeah right... real climbers start in China, paddle all the way up the Columbia R, hike from shore to top of Mt. Hood.

Where will all this bragging end?

Can't one enjoy a nice day in the mountains without trying to be macho?

Sure. Just don't post about it here or all the people sitting in front of their computers will tell you how they would do it if they actually went outdoors.
