Sweet! Sounds like a nice job. I'm a huge SAC fan! Seems like I buy something there once a week. Nicely done!

Damn! I tried to nail a pair of Fritschi Daimir freeride bindings on SAC this a.m. and was denied. Sold out, but when I checked back to see what was next they were still up?!? What up dat?

The Goat digs up some pretty cool/funny shat now and then too.

I wonder how they like their new owners.

Seems like they've been having some issues lately. That's happened to me before (namely on a CRKT knife). Yah, the Daily Dose can be pretty funny now and then.

See 'ya Friday?

Dude!!! I didn't recognise your screen name. I'll need to make an appointment with you and Blue at the Rally.

See you there.

Hey! I payed to play Culebra and Red Mtn this weekend. $150 ? Fun hike, but it left me feeling like I had paid for sex (or so I would imagine). You know....I liked it, but I felt dirty afterward.

Har! Sounds like fun. Give me a holler when you do stuff like that; I'm always up for a 14er. I'll have to tell you about Challenger/Kit Carson/Challenger.

Just another IT guy

I was dipped in computer stuff when I was 6 years old..... I did not recover.....

Jack of all trade because of my father who wanted to try and do everything, I am myself curious about everything. My education got me a MS in CS (major in databases and networks). I hated databases..... Now I work for a software company in the Business Intelligence space (a.k.a. Decision Support Systems). For those who don't know, that involves _a_lot_of_ database stuff.

So, to stay alive, I used to wrench on my trucks. For the past 6 months I've been doing mostly baby wrenching..... Babies are definitely higher maintenance than Land Rovers! [Or maybe it's because I got two at the same time?

Damn. If any of you guys ever want to climb a 14er, drop me a line or give me a call, 210 859 3107. I solo'ed Pyramid three weekends ago and attempted Capitol two weeks ago but my climbing pal from Boston got wicked altitude sickness.

Hope I can fix my overheating problems in time for the Rally.

Looks like good times! Definitely, but they're usually short notice. I'll look for 'ya at the rally!

I'm sorry Chance, I owed you a call for this one. It was my brother's gig though. It was his last one, and he invited me along (made the reservation and all) so I was joining his group. I think it's booked for the rest of this year but whenever you want to do it, I'm in. Or any of the others for that matter.

I'm not planning on attending the rally, but if you guys want to knock one off when you're in the area, let me know. That's a target-rich environment down there!

Chris, that picture from the end of the NV trip with all the dusty gear is killin' me! Looks like a couple of great trips, Cope brother.

Sorry for the hijack,

I sell building materials to masonry contractors.



Jburt did a thread on this a couple years ago, I wonder how many people are still doing now, what they did back then.

My girl gets back from her deployment in early September and we're going to try to bag a few 14ers when she does. She's never climbed before, so it may be some more mellow climbs but I will definitely post here, in case any of y'all want to come.

I replaced my thermostat tonight so I'm going to try to make it down there after all. I'm very interested in climbing during/before/after the Rally, if any of you guys want to. I've always wanted to climb Mount Wilson.

You have no idea! I will be cleaning that dust out of the truck for years to come. Speaking of cope, that trip was so dusty that my spittoon actually turned to mud! I should have taken a picture.

Ok, back to your regularly scheduled...

Not a problem! Yah, I'm trying to figure out how I can bag one what with the Wife and dog along and all. Back to your regularly scheduled thread...

Trained as an architect...but figured out I can make more money buying selling and building them instead of drawing them.

Since I never posted in this earlier:

I am a Signal Maintainer for a Regional Shortline Railroad in VT, NH, MA, and CT. The New England Central Railroad. I work on a 70 mile stretch of the railroad making sure the cars don't hit the trains, and the trains don't hit each other. Good pay, but I am on-call 24-7 so lots of late night callouts, but in general I love my job.

And yes, I get to drive one of those cool trucks with the little rail wheels down the tracks!

I am a funeral director. My grandfather started our family business over 60 years ago. For the most part, it is really nice to be able to work with my family on a daily basis. As with all jobs, it has it's pro's and con's.
