    You just need a convenient "death in the family".

    Yeah - I guess you probably wouldn't want the karmic snap back from that one, would you?

    I was just searching for stuff on the Str8tline camps and came across this thread. Those pics are just awesome. Especially as I sit through another day at the office with temps soaring over 100 today. Arty, great TR. Did the funding drive falll short this year for a repeat, or did I just miss it?

    All the money in the world wouldn't have saved me since I didn't have any vacation days this winter. Ok, well all the money in the world would have saved me since I wouldn't have to work. But I think you get the point.

    Damn...dreaming of AK again...

    The reality is much larger. Much more awe inspiring.



    You try to tell yourself that you live higher than the peak you’re currently standing on…but it doesn’t matter. You’ve just unloaded onto a ridge barely large enough for you, much less your group. The pucker factor is high. If you take a wrong step and slip off the back, there’s a good chance you’ll die.



    Your desired line in front of you is 2,000 to 4,000 vertical of steep, wild terrain with glacial runouts going for miles. Then you see it…your line. Focus sets in…a huge smile creeps over your face…you drop in…
