34. oh, and it's worth noting,
Edited on Sat Dec-16-06 03:19 PM by northzax
although I am sure you know this as well, that the primary Search and Rescue work on the mountain is being done by Portland Mountain Rescue and the Mazamas, both non profits staffed by volunteers.

disclosure, PMR has gotten a check from me on an annual basis since I first climbed Mt Hood in 1992- and I have been a Mazama member since I climbed Baker that same year.
