I love summer! Nice rant - it made my morning. :lol: In case you're not just trolling, I'll try to offer some assistance...

Here's what you're probably looking for but couldn't find it: Peak Planning Console (PPC) Get there by clicking the PPC link next to each peak name on the left of the home page or look in the site menus

dhaines wrote:Can the forumns please be reogranzied into geographic areas and trailheads?

Try looking at all the site content instead of the just the forum. Like the PPC, route pages also link together information related to a peak/area including TRs, condition reports, trailheads and weather


Always the educator Bill! Thanks for all you do!

This forum would be much better if it could provide directions to the nearest craft brewery for each trailhead.
I need more dehydrogenase.

"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."

I think this thread was just a fly-by and he'll come around again...

I wonder if there's a band called "The Forum Organization" and if they actually do suck.


Good, then it's not just a clever name.
