How To Rappel or Why You Need To Spread Your Legs (Not in a Nasty Way)

It's the reward after the strenuous effort of reaching the top. It's what people who didn't do it think climbing is all about - it's the fun stuff. However, if you want to enjoy the full pleasure of rappelling you must spread your legs... Oh yeah! Let's talk geometry and make this sound more complicated than it really is. You'll knock yourself out (literally) if you don't spread them If you've tried to abseil down a rope and kept your feet close together you may have swung either to the left side or to right side, hitting your shoulders against the rock face.

View topic - 1928 train wreck in the columbia river gorge

I was unaware of this historic wreck, so I super appreciate the head's up, as it mirrors the "Starvation Creek" snowpocalypse from the 1880s...but this one has actual newspaper photos. Oh, I guess I got ahead of myself. The wreck happened on Jan 1st 1928..and there was extensive coverage the entire next week in the Oregonian. I popped into the Oregonian digital archive and instantly found a trove of articles and pix.

Wow, thank jah once again for the digitized Oregonian!! For those "not in the know"...you access the Oregonian archive via the Multnonah County Library website, where you'll need a library card # to "get in". Ghost Town of Palmer, Oregon - Pacific Northwest Photoblog. Ghost Town of Palmer, Oregon.
