Great date

You sound like a great date, Brian. I miss seeing bears as often as I used to in WA. Colorado is not near so good in that regard (though it does have other virtues all its own). When are you and other PNW SP'ers going to come climb out here?

Re: Great date

Hey man, thanks. I climbed at the gym last night with your bud Ian Bondi. Hope to get to Colorado soon, especially since Annie used to live in Colorado Springs and wants to visit badly. Hopefully next summer but if I can squeeze a winter trip in before then..................

Cascade Mountain Oysters?

Did you have the CMOs at the Buffalo Run Restaurant? Better yet, did Annie have any? My friend Michelle said "no way" but she's not the first friend to pass on such a delicacy.

About Da Bears: they're not only not interested in humans so nothing to fear unless you completely startle them but also gunning for an ass whuppin' at the hands and feet of the Seahawks this weekend.

You need to bring Annie on a Klenke excursion in da brush. That'll toughen her right up. Spend a day in the devils club and all that unpleasant talus will seem like a baby's crib. Or something like that.

Re: Cascade Mountain Oysters?

I saw the CMO's on the menu but decided to pass this time.

We'll see what happens this Sunday night. I suppose if the Bears win, the excuse will be because Alexander was out. I can hear the Seahawks fans crying now. Should be a great game though.

Ah, Devils Club.........the spines of Northwest joy. throw in some poison oak and I'll see if I can convince her.

Still better than Portland's NFL team...oh wait.

Re: Cascade Mountain Oysters?

THAT'S your comeback? C'mon! I know it's hard to think of something after a whipping like that but I would have expected a little more than a cheap shot at a non-NFL town. I moved here from Chicago for climbing and hiking and kayaking (and a job) but even if Portland ever had a football team (which they never will), I'd still be a Bears fan. In fact, the only good thing about Portland if they got a football team would be that the Bears would come through here occasionally. Portland is just not a national-level sports town. The Jailblazers don't count. We're still down about 2 or 3 on the list for a baseball franchise (so we'll never get one) and no one even talks about football here. And does anyone still care about hockey?

Stick with your team though. When they get their RB and TE back, their offense is much different. Who knows what will happen. It's just nice to be a Bears fan in the Pac NW these days (after many years of it not being so much fun).

Re: Cascade Mountain Oysters?

Whoa there, Nelly!
(I didn't know you were a Bears fan.)
And yes, that was my comeback. Only the worst for you, bub.

Re: Cascade Mountain Oysters?

Oh, I thought you were commenting from the photo of the bears from the TR that I titled Representing my favorite NFL team but I see your comment was on the TR itself. It's all much more clearer now. :- )

Here's another one where I pay tribute to Da Bearssss.

Visiting Colorado

Hey Brian,

Definitely let me know when you come to Colorado, whether this winter or next summer. It would be great to climb again, and there are a lot of great people I've met on SP here in CO we could put something together with... If you need a place to flop in Boulder a few nights (actually, I just bought a place 10 miles out of town, so it's not quite Boulder proper), you're always welcome.

Re: Visiting Colorado

Thanks, Peter! Appreciate that. Colorado is definitely on the visit list again and if Annie had her way, we'd move there tomorrow so I am sure we'll be there sometime soon. Thanks!

Way to go

Sounds like you had many thoughful considerations for your girl friends first back country adventure. I especially liked the touch of the "surprise" of favorite treats and a nice hot meal. But as we know, the one rule that rules over all is Murphy's.

Isn't it fun to take first timers out? To see them experience some unexpected hardships, and see that they can do quite a bit to fend for themselves is priceless.

Adventures with girlfriends

I'm glad your adventure turned out well. On my first backpacking trip with my girlfriend, we camped on a pretty little spot by the river. When we woke up, we were on an island, after an apparent flash flood. Amazingly we didn't lose any of our equipment, but it was on another island further away. She was such a good sport about it, we went for a swim and stayed another night (on higher ground).

Re: Adventures with girlfriends

Wow, that'd wake you up in the morning! Thanks for the comments. I see you are from one of my favorite cities. My girfriend and I just visited Victoria. Looking forward to getting up there again soon.
