  1. I have a smaller version of this one:
  2. The NPs were already addressed, but this part is wrong as well. The Feds own all the National Forests, and it's always been legal to carry there, and unlike the Parks, you can set up an impromptu shooting range there if you feel like it. Also, here in WA the concealed carry license allows concealed carry, it does not require it. So you can carry concealed or openly, or partially concealed if you have the CPL. If you don't have a CPL you may carry openly. That applies in the National Parks, National Forests, Wilderness Areas, State Parks, County Parks, City Parks, or just while strolling Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle.
  3. I've already forgotten what he looks like..... Good to see you're coming back TL!
  4. Thanks Chris! It sure was a great adventure I'll never forget! Way to go, John! Been too long since I saw you or Chris. Yeah... well... that's your fault for repeatedly trying to hurl yourself down a mountainside whenever we hike together. Don't exaggerate, it was just the once. I don't know. If I remember correctly, you scared a few times on Aix as well.

  6. Congratulations to evergreenhiker! for earning his 3500 the hard way, on French Peak!
  7. Be aware that candles and food products in your pack will give off a scent that can attract unwelcome nighttime visitors. We usually remember to bag and hang our food (or use bear cans) but often forget the scented or food items we weren't going to eat.
  8. Prayers for your recoveries Dick. Let us know if you need anything.
  9. Give him my best and if he's up for visitors let me know where he is. K7XFE
  10. There's a thread over here with some good info.

    Who's Miranda? I had no idea you had an airedale. That's the funny part; she doesn't have an Airedale!
  12. Kenny's Dead Kenny's Dead. Again. Both are long gone.
  13. Nice piece, but what good will it do you against a bear or a moose? Up in Canada where I live I'm concerned about a sow bear with cubs in the spring, and a bull moose in rut in the fall. The Glock is not going to help me in either situation. I think that pistol would be better suited to 'urban caching', though why would you be caching in 'that' neighbourhood? All the people I've encountered 'on the trail' have been very pleasant people. I wonder what kind of experiences people have had that they think a pistol is the answer? Play safe everyone! Bluelamb03 I don't think I'd survive the shock of seeing a moose in the Oly or Cascade mountains here, so the gun is moot. As for bears, (we have only black bears here) they tend to run the other way most of the time, and are only a very minor concern. If that concern manifests itself in an angry sow bear I'm pretty sure a 200gr hardcast 10mm can handle it. I don't do urban caching.
  14. Get better soon! Happy Thanksgiving. Ack! Feel better there TL!
  15. I'm thinking of dragging up to Mt O'Neil on Sunday, after overnighting at Moonshine Flats on Saturday night. This weather can't hold out much longer.
  16. Looks like just one car. It's happened over here too. My guess is that it was a stolen car, brought there and burned to cover evidence (as well as give them a thrill) These are cars left overnight at the trailhead by backpackers heading up the trail. Do you know what trail heads this has happened at? You are sure it was backpackers cars?? "These pictures were posted in a TR for the Duckabush Trail" The TR is here.

  18. There's even bigger drama out there than a few missing caches. Some clown or clowns are torching cars at trailheads in Jefferson County. These pictures were posted in a TR for the Duckabush Trail- parked at the trailhead.
  19. Rain is water falling from the sky. Water falling from the sky isn't something that would ever compel you to stop hiking, much less stay overnight. In the case of a genuine emergency, you want the help. I haven't heard of a fine for SAR out here.
  20. Strange? I'm the original owner, not the current owner. The archive request is all I can do. There is a sign posted at the trailhead that specifically prohibits geocaches- even has the geocache symbol with a red slash through it. It is very doubtful they would grant permission given their request that hikers stay on the trail. I'm surprised you weren't able to read that in the log.
  21. The cache did not survive the fire. Details on the cache page. This is all that was left. The container was completely gone, and all of the contents except for these:
  22. The word on the trails is that Duckabush is open to hikers. I'm planning to head up this weekend to check the cache. Short drive for me, not so much for most. I'm planning to drive in the night before and hit the trail at sun-up. Day TBD.
  23. I wonder if the father was on the same stretch of trail we were..."the father was in a position where crews could not reach him." I got the impression from the article that they didn't use the trail, but went in cross-country from some other point. It would be pretty hard to get lost using the trail. Falling off the trail is another story altogether.
  24. Ironman114 sends: Apparently, Klone Lakes is hard to find for some people.
