The couple that looked at the house came back with two questions: would the town allow them to build another structure (a garage, presumably, and yes they could) and how fast could we move out (pretty damned fast, but 30 days would be ideal.)

We would rent a place through the winter, buy a tow-behind RV since I will get my license back in early Dec, then road trip x-country for 2-3 months in mid to late spring with a final destination of Colorado.

WAH HOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!11!!!1!!!!

Badmotherfuckinass!!

The new phone gets Internet on the island... Got an offer on the house this morning, countered offered, and it was accepted. Next step is the house inspection, then the purchase & sales agreement. It's happening, fo realz.

We need to rent a storage pod for our belongings, be fully moved out by oct 4, and find a 6 month rental to get us through the winter and into extended road tripping weather.

Bryan, our Cannon plans will be unaffected. Bring empty cardboard boxes if you have them.Laugh

EPIC! Thats great news dude.

Sadly I think our Cannon plans will be affected by my jacked up elbow. 9 days later and after 3 days of complete rest, it feels 0% better. I'm actually a bit concerned now. I have a doctors appointment for monday.

If a miracle happens and it heals quickly, I am still planning to drive up but I can't commit to plane tickets with the way it feels now.

No worries. If you can make it, we will go; if not, I now have plenty of other things to do with my spare time.

Good luck with the Doc.

Thanks for being chill about it. I'm just annoyed because I waited for better temps and it may be too cold by the time I'm healed up. Ah well. Cest la vie...

if you can handle the cold, you'll be ok in oct. of course, loran may be living out of a van at that point.
I could be living out of a Suburban by the end of the year, or early next.
*willing to drive to crag and belay for gas money*

hire an architect to divy up the rooms.

nah, you'll be ok. they want to keep you around.
I'm hoping.
But had a strange dream last night.
We were all standing around the boss, he had a couple spots to fill, and lots of extra people. If he handed you your bowl, that meant he was letting you go. If he kept your bowl, that meant he was keeping you. Why bowls, I don't know, it was weird. But he handed me my bowl several times, before I figured it out. Then was told I was being replaced by a kid that quit years ago, but they might be able rehire him back for less. Crazy
It would be interesting to see how others might interpet the dream, especially the bowl part. Best answer gets a cookie. Cool

It's how you eat. He's telling you take your method of eating somewhere else.

Difficult dream.
No other takers for the bowls?

a better way of saying it it's how you earn your bread.

damn, that would've worked better the first time around.

still, we all know you eat bread from a plate, right? so maybe the bowl is useless in this scenario.

I actually work with dreams quite a bit. I use certain herbs and techniques to induce lucid dreaming, where you realize, while asleep, that you are dreaming. This frees you to a "dream awakening," and you can then dictate the direction the dream progresses. Unassisted flying is especially cool, and can take you from one scenario directly into another, more pertinent dreamscape. Pretty cool.

It would seem that the bowl, as a vessel, symbolizes the accumulated knowledge that you have to offer.

The meaning now becomes obvious.

Those are the best kinds of TRs. [applause]

BTW - you should totally continue the shop. You make some good stuff and, while I may be off-base in saying this, I think that once an artist always an artist. Would you rather make money doing something else? The work is fun, isn't it?

Thanks. I think all TRs must be brutally honest, including emotions, fears, and the whole enchilada. If it is a climbing TR, then the climb is the glue that holds it together.

I used to lurk and post in the Mass Climbers thread, but there was someone, I forget who, who used to write endless move by move, gear placement by gear placement reports about 5.6s. Turned me right away from the thread.

And you are right, once an artist, always an artist. However, I have made every type of furniture you can think of, so why not take that artistic mentality and apply it outside the box, outside my comfort zone? It could be an incredible opportunity to grow.

I used to belong to the very exclusive NH Furniture Masters, until I just got tired of the routine of making furniture for the annual exhibits and auction. Moving shows from venue to venue, selling yourself to patrons, it gets old for me. 10 years later and all of those guys keep making the same pieces, with subtle changes (generalizing here) and touting their "new work."

Although I was still drinking at the time, when I returned to my shop after taking a 3 year break to teach outdoor ed and woodshop, I had fresh ideas, motivations, desires. The trick is to know when you are beginning to stagnate, and rechart a course. I am not stagnating at the moment, but I also realize that when an opportunity to grow and evolve presents itself, then you take it.

I can always reopen a shop; it's in my soul now.

That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

Yeah, I get you. Maybe the tap isn't dry, but maybe you're seeking a new flavor.

What other artistic ideas do you have? I'm curious to know how you might play this. Also, if answering that question mean going through the artistic process itself (and answering means losing that), then maybe you can answer this one instead: is furniture different from the Rockies than it is in New England? My guess is yes, but I'm not sure what you've done in total.

Very kewl.
Funny how life is sometimes, the timing and the way things work out. The number of times I've had plans cancled, changed, or just self destruct. Yet when I really needed it, really bad, have them work out at the last minute. Felt like I went through the wringer to get, but made it.
As you said, we're just along for the ride. Hopefully I'm learning to grow.
Enjoy the next part. I'm sure you'll keep posting, at least for a while. But when you get to CA, look us up.

I'd cup your balls, like everyone else has, but eww.

Instead, when you head far enough west that your vehicle can't go any further without caulk, look me up and we'll have to get a meal or something. It would seem that you're on your way to an epic adventure.

Sew 1st the bad news.
In 4-6 months 1 out of 3 peeps r going to be canned.
Apparrently no voluntary incentives offered.

Might not want to spend too much time on the knob while at work till all that shakes out. Unimpressed

Seriously though, thats a tough position to be in. I hope it all works out well.
no more pt and pc++? ouch thats going to hurt.
In related news. My boss wants me to go to CO for some training. Which is good news, still wants me on his team. I just got back from CO for a conference. Turn around and go back in a couple weeks.

Cool, where in CO? Time for climbing?
Maybe, I have one free day, Sat after class.
Which Sat?
OK, lets try this again.
crashed the knob last time I tryed to reply to this post.
I will be in Montrose CO, Sept 10-16. I will be free Sat the 15th, and I have wheels. I would love to climb out there, but will be limited to shoes, harness, and belay device. Maybe a PAS or something else small and light. I have a late afternoon flight out of Grand Junction, so can hang late on Sat for the climbing.
Now the question arises, Sammy, how is it, you are listed as being in CO? Last I recall you where making vegi sammies for NA in Virginia.
Actually, that doesn't really mater.
But I will take any info on Climbing in the area that anyone might have.

She just used me to get some outdoor experience and them bounced.
I know, right. Mad

Hey this is so not true! All my hard sandwich making work (and buying MEAT I might add!) and this is how I am repaid Mad

Weekend Update With Chevy Chase

Well, minus the Chevy Chase part.

Friday evening my partner Joshua and I hit up, you guessed it, Longstack Precipice. I lead the route we had scrubbed a week ago to establish "Earth and Sky" 5.9 PG13, 100' Two distinct cruxes, the first of which is in the photo, long moves to an overlap that is underclinged, quite strenuously, to an inside corner; the second crux is a 15' 5.9 slab protected by tying off a pine tree on a ledge below the slab. Nice climb, that one.



We then rap cleaned another line to the left, and as the sun was disappearing behind the western mountains, I lead it via headlamp to create "Sacred Fire" 5.8, 100'. The exit moves proved to be the crux, a rounded beached whale affair with manky cams two feet below your tootsies. No pics of that as it was fully dark.

Saturday we spent the whole day hoeing 19 years of accumulated junk out of our basement. Two pickup loads to the dump, and if we're lucky we'll make $50 on the rest in a future yard sale.

Today I held a class in my home for 10 women at 65 bones/person. Not bad for 6 hours work (fun?), but I missed the whole Patriots season opener. Anyone know how to watch the game on the intardwebs?

We then rap cleaned another line to the left, and as the sun was disappearing behind the western mountains, I lead it via headlamp to create "Sacred Fire" 5.8, 100'. The exit moves proved to be the crux, a rounded beached whale affair with manky cams two feet below your tootsies. No pics of that as it was fully dark.

Saturday we spent the whole day hoeing 19 years of accumulated junk out of our basement. Two pickup loads to the dump, and if we're lucky we'll make $50 on the rest in a future yard sale.

Today I held a class in my home for 10 women at 65 bones/person. Not bad for 6 hours work (fun?), but I missed the whole Patriots season opener. Anyone know how to watch the game on the intardwebs?

Oh, and I sold a drum and a rattle through Etsy. I'm gonna have to find a way to bring my table saw to the rental house so I can continue to make drum frames over the winter.

Weekend Update With Chevy Chase

Well, minus the Chevy Chase part.

Friday evening my partner Joshua and I hit up, you guessed it, Longstack Precipice. I lead the route we had scrubbed a week ago to establish "Earth and Sky" 5.9 PG13, 100' Two distinct cruxes, the first of which is in the photo, long moves to an overlap that is underclinged, quite strenuously, to an inside corner; the second crux is a 15' 5.9 slab protected by tying off a pine tree on a ledge below the slab.

http://www.azzav.net/ <-- watch out or the NFL will come get you (a pay version through nfl.com exists, too)

Well done on the climbs and selling the drum. I worked on three paintings and finished one. Camera is funky, bad pic of the one that I finished. Pats D looks good this year.

Been a productive week(end). Tired, but settled down.

Due to high winds in the Cabot straight, our departure has been postponed to 11:30am tomorrow

This means we need to find a campsite in 60km/h winds and rain
Crappy weather ftl?

That was nothing... today it's hurricane Leslie giving us a lashing. Had 80km/h winds yesterday and have gotten 2 inches of rain in the last 12 hours

In other news, I'm gonna spam you all:

a few of my small prints are now available online: Greg's Prints

It's only a few because I don't have good pics of everything. And only small sizes are available because I don't have good pics of everything. Unsure

This company, Society6, has really high standards and uses high quality materials, so I need to find someone with a good camera to help me out, and I need to find a way to get those paintings that are hanging back in my apt for new pics.

But still, I'm stoked! WOOOOO!!! Beer

to clarify: the prints that are available are available at sizes that are good. society6 won't allow me to sell larger sized prints because the pictures I took aren't good enough for larger prints.

still, what's available is pretty cheap, and they have free shipping at the moment (I think)

Oh yeah, may have scored another commission. maybe one or two paintings. it's a business that needs some stuff on the walls of their new location.

After 16 days off, including two 3 day weekends, my arm was feeling decent so I figured I'd hit the gym tonight to feel things out. Climbed a few .8's and .9's, mostly using my left arm for balance and doing all the pulling with my right. I felt pretty good while climbing but now my arm hurts way more than I would like. I think I may be facing at least another month before I can climb without making things worse.

There goes half the fall season...
