YEsh!

one day skizering at Tahoe. Resort TBD.
Then to drive to Ewetawh where I will ski at Alta for two daze and then some climberinzing the ice in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
After we will head oft to Ouray for the ice and hot tubbery
Our final swing will be to the S rim of the Grand canyon before heading home.

Action-Packed! Pics and stories will be shared!

So is mine. Not guaranteed yet, but almost guaranteed.

Climbing in Andalucia, Spain (El Chorro, among others, is there). Partner hasn't bough the tix yet, but he says he's coming either way.
Sawsome.
My plans include sitting around the outlaws watching the kids go crazy with too much useless junk to clutter up the house. Oh yea. U wish you were me 2.

jealous!
We r getting ahead of our selves though. Got to survive the Turkey weekend first.
The wife didn't want to go. Then she found out her cousin's GF is going to be there. Now we have to go cause being w/ family is important???
Well the MIL found out we're going so now she's guilting the wife's older sister. Oh yea, everyone will be all happy and smiles...

i love the holidaze!!!

Thanksgiving Eve X2 (today): visited a newfound crag in Pinkham Notch with schist similar to Rumney, views of Mt Washington, tons of crags 35' - 90' tall, and lots more potential. 30 routes so far; we put up 5 FAs today, all trad.

Thanksgiving: visiting my parents for dinner with my bro/his family and my sis. I am brining the turkey now; we are responsible for the bird, stuffing, and closely monitoring the patriots/jets game.

Christmas: two weeks in Colorado, visiting Meaghan, my wife's awesome cousin, and other friends. We will be scoping out the front range for future settlement, skiing, climbing, etc.

New Years: this has always been a non-holiday for me, but we will still be in CO so may find something to do. Also my 2 1/2 year sobriety date...

Valentines Day: no plans yet. Heh.

May Day: target date to leave the rental house, jump in the truck & RV, and hit the road. First stop: Maxwell's college graduation from ZooMass, then four months of road tripping.

Gneiss! Schist!!!!

Is this crag going to have Rumney ethics or will it adhere to the MWV tradiban GU, no bolts ethic? You're on the right side of the hill for that. I wish I was over there still, perhaps, if only to climb with you guys. Edge, you and I were 1.5 hours away and never seemed to meet!

The crew I've been rolling with have gained a local reputation for finding and developing new areas with a full range of grades, commitment levels, and trail work. Routes are often cleaned and FA'd ground up, but equally as often they require top down scrubbing and bolting on rappel. True sport routes are rare, generally bolts are only added to augment natural gear; and there are just as many spicy all trad lines. This new area is a hybrid compromise logical extention of the N Conway and Rumney ethics, the best of both.

In the New Durham Area alone, MP lists 231 routes, of which probably 80% were established by the self-named "Chinos." There are now over 100 additional routes scattered throughout the Whites; all of this in the last 2-3 years. I am accepted as the bastard grandfather of the Chinos...

I forgot when you left New England, Epoch, but if it was over 28 months ago I was not climbing and on the fast track to total self destruction, so no wonder we didn't hook up. For the last 2+ years I have been getting out climbing at least twice a week, skiing, skydiving, holding ceremonial groups and workshops, and gradually replacing the rigid stem circa 1982 Friends from my rack...

You don't know long drive with traffic... I have to go to Buffalo Friday to pick up a friend at the airport. Guaranteed AT LEAST 8 hours of border waits.

Anticipating 10 hours to do about 100mi rt
Ouch.
I'm only looking at 3 hours to drive 100mi to the aunts place.
Maybe I should make the wife drive....
Shocked

Do the Friends go all the way back to 82. I took up the game in 88, and they were established by then. Didn't realize they where quite that old. I still has my first TCU's and Freind. The ones with the roll pins stops. Not that I climb on them any more. Upgraded several years ago to new FCU's.

I think they drive. Looong drive.

I want to know what they do for accommodations... Mammoth isn't unreasonable, it's the accommodations that have kept me from making that stinking drive.

There are flights, direct, from San Diego now, too. I should check into that, cause that drive is kind-of a kicker.

I've decided to pretty much stay drunk until I can climb again, instead. I feel like this could lead me in a whole new life direction.

Gnu Yeerz trip is coming together nicely...

YEsh!

one day skizering at Tahoe. Resort TBD.
Then to drive to Ewetawh where I will ski at Alta for two daze and then some climberinzing the ice in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
After we will head oft to Ouray for the ice and hot tubbery
Our final swing will be to the S rim of the Grand canyon before heading home.

Action-Packed! Pics and stories will be shared!

So is mine. Not guaranteed yet, but almost guaranteed.

Climbing in Andalucia, Spain (El Chorro, among others, is there). Partner hasn't bough the tix yet, but he says he's coming either way.
Sawsome.
My plans include sitting around the outlaws watching the kids go crazy with too much useless junk to clutter up the house. Oh yea. U wish you were me 2.

jealous!
We r getting ahead of our selves though. Got to survive the Turkey weekend first.
The wife didn't want to go. Then she found out her cousin's GF is going to be there. Now we have to go cause being w/ family is important???
Well the MIL found out we're going so now she's guilting the wife's older sister. Oh yea, everyone will be all happy and smiles...

i love the holidaze!!!

Thanksgiving Eve X2 (today): visited a newfound crag in Pinkham Notch with schist similar to Rumney, views of Mt Washington, tons of crags 35' - 90' tall, and lots more potential. 30 routes so far; we put up 5 FAs today, all trad.

Thanksgiving: visiting my parents for dinner with my bro/his family and my sis. I am brining the turkey now; we are responsible for the bird, stuffing, and closely monitoring the patriots/jets game.

Christmas: two weeks in Colorado, visiting Meaghan, my wife's awesome cousin, and other friends. We will be scoping out the front range for future settlement, skiing, climbing, etc.

New Years: this has always been a non-holiday for me, but we will still be in CO so may find something to do. Also my 2 1/2 year sobriety date...

Valentines Day: no plans yet. Heh.

May Day: target date to leave the rental house, jump in the truck & RV, and hit the road. First stop: Maxwell's college graduation from ZooMass, then four months of road tripping.

Gneiss! Schist!!!!

Is this crag going to have Rumney ethics or will it adhere to the MWV tradiban GU, no bolts ethic? You're on the right side of the hill for that. I wish I was over there still, perhaps, if only to climb with you guys. Edge, you and I were 1.5 hours away and never seemed to meet!

The crew I've been rolling with have gained a local reputation for finding and developing new areas with a full range of grades, commitment levels, and trail work. Routes are often cleaned and FA'd ground up, but equally as often they require top down scrubbing and bolting on rappel. True sport routes are rare, generally bolts are only added to augment natural gear; and there are just as many spicy all trad lines. This new area is a hybrid compromise logical extention of the N Conway and Rumney ethics, the best of both.

In the New Durham Area alone, MP lists 231 routes, of which probably 80% were established by the self-named "Chinos." There are now over 100 additional routes scattered throughout the Whites; all of this in the last 2-3 years. I am accepted as the bastard grandfather of the Chinos...

I forgot when you left New England, Epoch, but if it was over 28 months ago I was not climbing and on the fast track to total self destruction, so no wonder we didn't hook up. For the last 2+ years I have been getting out climbing at least twice a week, skiing, skydiving, holding ceremonial groups and workshops, and gradually replacing the rigid stem circa 1982 Friends from my rack...

And there you go. you back them back by up and leaving them.
What?

Order of words, dude. Order of words.

Skip werk...

go klimb.

VOTM!!!

yup that's what I'll be doing tomorrow instead of work. I need a personal day...

I skipped work and went to VOTM today. (it was rad.... yes)

Started on Best Crack in the Moon then found my way working a bit on Einstein's Relativity.
Got on Sketch and skared myself half to death. Made the onzite with three falls.
Sent Paradigm Shift on the second go; the route is pretty cool.

Rounded our way to Patina Wall and did Tech9; it would seem I find myself on it every time.
Then kicked over and went up Full Auto before working on M11 for a bit. Got it on my third go.

Checked out some new lines on the back wall that aren't documented in the guide. All pretty sweet.

Got harassed by Border Patrol agent on a horse. He was quite douchey and was skeptical that we were climbers. Despite the, um, ropes harness and such. Dude was annoying.

On our way out we were harassed again by some 20-something young tool trying to look in the esuvee to see if we had migrants or drugs.

To top it off, at the checkpoiint we were harassed again, though this time I suspect it was because I was making faces and being an ass to the cameras.

Fuck..


Off to the Bay Area for the weekend. No climbing on this trip. I think we're diving on Friday in Monterrey, though.
