1/10/10 09:25 pm - mehitabelmmoss - Clymb - a new source for discount gear?

I just joined this. I don't know if it will be any good but seems legit and I got the link from someone in a local mountaineering club. Check it out - has weekly events with heavily discounted gear. At least that's what they say. Members-only so they're trying to build by word of mouth. Try the linky. I'll try to add comments here when I see more of what they're about. as someone who is a gearhound with an unfortunate jacket fetish this could be dangerous for me.......

6/14/08 04:41 pm - orion_boreas - Backpacking in Los Angeles area?

Hi there,

I live in the Los Angeles area and am wondering if anyone else in this community does too. I just acquired a great new Osprey backpack (ooh, shiny!) but don't have anyone to go backpacking with. Sketchy men posting in the so-called "Strictly Platonic" section of Craigslist are not an option. If you live in or around Los Angeles and want to get outside, please get in touch with me! There is too much pretty stuff to not go out and experience it.

5/29/08 03:15 pm - tonithegreat - Southwestern Colorado Advice

It's been a while since I posted to this forum, but it occurs to me that you all could be a good source of advice on an upcoming trip.

Does anyone have any recommendations for pretty short (day) hikes or great camping areas that shouldn't be missed in southwestern Colorado? I'm going to be doing some camping and hiking in the San Juans late next month and I'm looking for ideas to add to the agenda for lazier days.

My fiance and I are hoping to do a major hike and climb Mt. Eolus and some of the nearby 14ers as our main trip objective, but we're also looking for other fun things to do in the greater area. Recommendations outside Ouray and Creede would be appreciated too.

3/26/08 01:13 am - littlebitofrawr - Question time: Magazines?

Have been thinking about getting a subscription to an outdoorsy magazine, and am wondering if anybody has any recommendations.....
Looking for something probably with a focus on climbing or general outdoors goodness

I used to get Outside, which was nice.... but it since seems to have a focus on fashion shoots (what?) and other weird stuff.
Climbing and Rock and Ice are both good sometimes, but both get a little dude-brau-ish (Anybody read the short story in the Rock and Ice Anthology about the guy who says that his muscles get the girls all giggly and flexible? Like that guy) for my taste. I've heard of womens'  adventure magazines but haven't seen any to check out.

(Also would be open to non-outdoorsy magazine of some time, just not sure what that would be)

Do you have a magazine that you love?

Thanks, in advance.

3/13/08 09:56 am - zenith_sensory - gearing up for an early spring camping trip weekend after next

Bill's itching to look over some cliffs while the trees are still barren.  We love it when it's clear, but it's also pretty cool watching storms sweep down a valley, and after all, we are camping and are well aware of the risk of getting wet. I finished the lime green top that I have posted on the myspace page my journal links too.  I hope to wear that on our hike...it will be warm in all the right places.

I'm thinking of the grocery list just now, any suggestions?

3/5/08 12:54 pm - zenith_sensory - top experiences in mountain climbing

I love hiking and I used to be a decent rock climber in my younger more limber days.  I live in Southwestern Virginia near the Appalachian Trail and I still consider our hikes to be mountain climbing.  My kids love it.  I've had a lot of crayz outdoor experiences and I enjoy writing about them here on LJ and I'm building a decent fan base.  I'll try not to creep you all out, but I'm really into girls, sporty strong girls and I wish I was still of an engage to hook up with that specialsomeone for a raucous good time on top of soe lonely peak where no one would be bothered with our giggles and squeals of delight.

I also canoe, and crochet warm swimwear and cover up...hence the ICON...I made that. 

Be warned>>>> I BRAG ALOT too
