If there is still room (and if we can bring our 9 yr old daughter) we might be for it Saturday evening onward. Still have to talk it over and figure out family logistics.

Alan, is there space for us if we can make it? Please let me know. Thank,
Tiff

Had you down from the start ... :lol:

Only a couple of days left! Things are looking better all the time. Should be a blast!!

Checking http://www.weatherunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=03266

It now appears that it will rain on Friday and have spotty showeres on Saturday. Sunday and Monday look really nice.

Yes, wonderman, myself, and 9yr0ldclimbergirl will be there Saturday night. Is there anyone else bringing children? It would be cool to hang out with other kids. Dakotah is a solid 5.6 climber.

Kimmyt ... check your PM's

People can bring their kids if they want. Colleen has two young-uns and a teenager, Mike. Maybe Mike will feel like joining us if he sees other kids his age climbing. He's a laid back type of kid ... really nice and sport minded, but mostly Football, Baseball ... stuff like that.

Sadly, I am officially out for this one. I sprained my ankle last Friday, playing soccer; I was hoping that it would heal up in time, but, while I could make the 6+ hour drive, I wouldn't be able to enjoy the climbing at all.

My ankle should be in acceptable shape for the Gunks gathering. Hope to see some people, there.

On the topic of kids... we're bringing my 12 year old daughter. Apparently this trip rated high enough that our 'uncool' factor was a nonissue, so she'll be allowing herself to be seen with us this weekend.

Depending on weather we plan to come up Friday Night and stay till possibly Monday Morning...

Thankfully, my youngest is 16 ... no more of the uncoolness factors playing in.
My two oldest will be there and possible the two middle kids will show up, but I doubt that my youngest will show ...

Bring 'em on!

Wow... well, I'll have to remember that when we meet for the first time this weekend and keep the wife away from you... you're too damn fertile! If she gets pregnant and we have a kid that climbs the walls like a fly, I'll know it's not mine and come knockin' on your door!

Meg just turned 17, so she is probably classified as an adult, however she leaves soon to become an elementary school teacher. I am sure she can welcome anyone into the fold, and she is a very fine coach as well.

Sadly, I'm having to pass this time. I could list all the reasons I've rationalized, but it wouldn't be worth your time to read...

A mix of RSI, distance, money (or lack thereof), people not making it, etc...

Hopefully, I will be able to make it next year...

Well, on Sunday and Monday there is only a 40% and 30% chance of rain! Besides, who trusts the weatherman anyway?

Oh, I know... I'm just looking at the next two days.

It's honestly a very good thing my GF and I didn't go... we thought she had Monday off, but in reality she doesn't. She would have totally missed work without arranging it ahead of time; big no-no.

Stay dry, have fun, regale us with stories when y'all get back.

I'm out for Saturday. If the weather is conducive I'll drive up Saturday night or Sunday AM.

God, I hope it clears. Been looking forward to it.

Wow:

Tonight - Heavy Rain - 100%
Saturday - Heavy Rain - 100%
Sunday - Rain - 80%
Monday - Few Showers - 30%

I think I made the right choice in the end by not using up my vacation time and then driving for 8hours to Rumney this weekend.

I did get myself all excited about it though....maybe I'll still get a chance to get there before the end of the season.

If it makes anyone feel better, it's raining in Flagstaff, too.

Unfortunately, we did not get to go. We bailed because of the rain. :cry:

It might have been tolerable but between the way I deal with being cold and wet and having to camp with a 9yr old girl who has never camped in the rain, it jus would not have been fun!

I have great admiration for all of you who stuck it out and hope you had fun! Sorry, I'm just not that tough!

HA we had a pretty good time depending on when you climbed and what you got on.

Thurs. got picked up at my new living space in Nashua by kate and decided against the planned climbing by headlamp in favor of sleep. Crashed at jammer's place.

fri. Woke up to smiling faces of KimmyT, mel and Erik and planned to meet up with them at some point during the day. Did a warm up or 2 at the meadows.. went to find kimmy etc at parking lot wall. Did a few routes there including a new on i hadnt done Squeeze my lemon.8 Laughed a bit as erik got himself truely stuck by stuffing too many things onto one bolt and took a bit of work to get himself down. Headed off to attempt to find G-spot but gave up and did a few things at lower New wave instead. Finished the day off back at the meadows to do Reposession.

went back to jammers.. ate chicken, mashed potatoes and s'mores. Met Denny G, David yount and a few others i cant remember names (doh)

sat. wake up to rain.. ugh.. knew tht would happen. stayed in the tent for quite a while.. no real hurry to hit up the wet rocks. decided to head up.. met everyone at Lower vader. led Obi won in probably the worst condition it can get into yet the bottom was still dry and the holds up top are jugular so it was still fun. pulled the ropes and showed them up to Upper vader which was pretty wet but they were happy to be on rock so they set up TR's.. kate did Frosted flakes and then we decided to bail to some place out of the rain. no good movies were playing in plymouth so we checked out the local sports store then the book store until it was time for dinner. got chinese take out and went back to jammers. Hung out in Dennis's beast of a trip-mobile.. they had taco's and beer then David found marshmellows and they tried playing some game that involved funny words and chipmunk cheeks full of marshmellows.(pics to come). called it a night
sunday. more wet rock but not much rain. unfortunately the stuff i thought maybe do-able wasnt quite even close. bonsai was a waterfall except for some 12's on the right face. we did obi won then hoped Man with a hueco in his tights at Triple corners would be dry.. which it mostly was but the first bolt that needs to be stick clipped has a completely loose hanger that i couldnt get clipped so we bailed for wet slabs at the meadows instead. Did one of the 7's in wet but ok form. went to find G-spot again and succeeded. not knowing what order the route data base is in we guessed at what we thought was a .7 and did that before dark. walked out and got pizza for dinner. had mashmellows and s'mores with jammer by the fire he made.
monday. got out fairly early with jammer and warmed up at the meadows. headed to lower vader to do some video of me on Obi won for giggles. 4ish total burns later we hoped bonsai would be ok but it wasnt. went back to the meadows for a few routes.. said bye to jammer.. did another few routes at parking lot wall and drove back to nashua.
found out that almost all of the video didnt come out due to it trying to tape over old recordings which mini dv doesnt like i guess :(

Fun times despite the weather... thanks jammer for hosting.. its too bad more people didnt come but we made do with who and what we had.
Jake
