I'll put something together. I was kind of working on a calendar, Twelve Crappy I-90 Hikes, but I will throw a t-shirt up on cafepress pretty soon.

Keep us posted! (or me for my selfish tee-shirt wants)

A calender is a GREAT idea! I am sure you could sell a few dozen from this site alone. Go for it AH. up.gif

The funniest thing was this lady at the lookout whose family had dragged her up there and she was terrified of descending the ladder, I told her "yes it's scary, and sooo far to fall".....about a foot maybe, but it takes all kinds and I applaud her for going up at all plus a great source of amusement lol.gif


So, when'd they build a lookout on Si?  hockeygrin.gif

I think our moto bike rider is a bit confused...or maybe we all are and there IS a look out on si and only special people can use and see it.

Pretty well made out. I like Mount Pilchuck better!  biggrin.gif It's closer to home, it's bigger, and it's got a house and a nice view of the Mountain Loop Highway.

P.S. I obviously quoted the wrong person above, give me a break, I was tired.

But at least I was a source of amusement to you. embarassedlaugh.gif

I now believe that all TR should be required to include an AH sketch.  Hilarious!

In fairness... were it not for the throngs Mt. Si, from whence would our collective smug sense of superiority arise?     hmmm.gif

Exactly. It's like the old saying "If there were no losers, then there would be no winners".

There appears to be no shortage here of people with a smug sense of superiority.  waah.gif

That's ok though as long as they are occasionally funny. dizzy.gif

Forgot to add the one redeeming quality of Mt Si.  Lots of hot barely clad trail runner chics, at least the only time I was there.  There were a few guys for the ladies as well, but I only barely looked at them  biggrin.gif

Just in time for Kwanza, the official "Mount Si Big Whoop tees" are now on sale.

http://www.cafepress.com/TheAngryHiker

Once (and if) I sell a few of these, I'll put my "Rattlesnake Ledge, Trail of Turds" route map on some shirts.

A portion of all sales will go to charity.

i.e. I'll toss a couple pennies at a bum down on 1st and Pike.
