ahhh... but think of the advantages of solo home ownership:

you can pick out the colors for the walls and curtains without having to engage in any protracted negotiations.

a beekeeper, eh? sounds interesting. do you play music for them?

Only KING-FM, the rare times I'm transporting an observation hive, shotgun.

Re the home ownership stuff - yeah, I get to make all the aesthetic decisions, but do all the work too.  I lied in my bio re climbing only once - also spent a good chunk of two summers atop my (low slope) roof - doing re-coatings of the torch-down.  The 2nd time (after 10 years) wiped me out.

KING-FM is probably a good choice, unless it's Saturday and some knucklehead thinks that the excruciating pretentiousness of Richard Wagner might be in order.

Sunday evenings you might want to go with 88.5, though. wink.gif

I like to hike to lakes, cook backpacking food, go fishing, take pictures, and eat wild berries.  I like gnarly old trees and I like to feel all the different rocks and see the plants and wildflowers.  It's fun to find snow in July, which can only really be done in the mountains or in grandma's refrigerator.  I'm from Minnesota and the mountains fill me with awe.

Hi all!

I’m new to posting here, although I will admit that I’ve been a lurker for a while.

I love getting out every weekend and day off to conquer a new hike and take the occasional backpacking trip. I also enjoy my continuing education in mountaineering. My eventual goal is to someday summit Mts. Hood, Baker, Olympus, and Rainier. So far, I’m really lacking in the training and uphill shape department, so stay tuned on how all that is going. tongue.gif In the winter, I’m a ski patroller and an avid snowboarder. I love getting out on touring gear as well to enjoy safe low angle terrain—mostly since I don't have a lot of ski partners here in the PNW.

Enjoying learning from everyone’s advice and trip reports on this forum!

Guess I'll do an introduction......if for no other reason than to get this page a bit more up to date. smile.gif

I'm Gary & been hiking/backpacking since Boy Scouts, troop 326 Lake City Seattle.  That would make it about 60 years now (scary).  Lately what surprises me most about that is how little I've retained in 2 critical areas; first aid & use of compass.......just enough to get in trouble.

Lakes for fishing was the interest for 3/4's of early years outdoors, getting up high, scrambling to non technical peaks came late enough to now it's getting difficult to make the required effort.  Last extended backpack trip in the Oregon Wallowas 3 years ago.  Most hiking remains in Stevens Pass area & Mt. Loop Highway.  Commute traffic on evening returns has made Baker & N.Cascade Highway areas more attractive in recent years.  What's more problematic for day hiking now days is you kinda want to be on a trail for at least as many hrs. as driving to the trail head took. The other big disappointing change for me is the practice of no campfires.  The next generation I guess probably won't even miss what once was a major reason for overnight in the back country.

Just discovered this forum & it's already been fun hrs. of vicarious enjoyment of what I used to be able to anticipate doing.  But it's also a great motivator to continue participate in enjoyment of the great area we live in.  Thanks to all of you who contribute to this community.
