Hey Jason -- Happy Holidays!

Regarding ice I guess I would rather be skiing on it, this is the northeast after all, than climbing up it.

Did you ever hear from Gabe? If not, Gabe drop Jason a PM, he is relocating out your way. --- Bill
I did hear from Gabe! Thanks for connecting us.

J

You're welcome Wink

Josh
It was an abbreviated 6 degrees of separation effort!

Hey Grant just might see you Saturday. Given up on Sunday due to forecast. Waiting to hear back from someone before we decide where we are heading.

Jake are you available on Saturday for LW instead of Sunday? Any interest in coming up to Farley for bouldering/clipping bolts?

Bill

Managed to get out for the first time here in Chile (blog post is up, see below). Had a great time, and I really think I've managed to meet up with some good people, too.

There are a few different crowds down here. Most people only clip bolts, but the folks I've met seek out the traditional areas and are trying to develop new crags. The great thing is that only a few of the smaller group I've settled into climb hard, so most are at my level skill-wise. I'm really excited for this season to get going.

Chile in general has been both good and a struggle at the same time. I start Spanish classes next week, so that should help with the struggle. The writing has been great, and I've been getting a lot of reading done, too. Bill, haven't broken out your books yet, but that's a matter of circumstance: my roommates bought me a book for x-mas and lent me a bunch of their own books I hadn't read yet and it would have been rude of me to not get through those first. The People of Paper is next, however.

I hope everyone had a good holiday season. I can't wait to see you all next spring.

Greg

Hey Greg -- Enjoyed the write-up of your outing in Chile. Well done. The mention of the collectivos brought back long forgotten memories of my surf bum days; way, way, way long ago. In Puerto Rico collectivos are called publico cars. Twenty-five cents would get us the three miles from our beach front shack to Rincon. There on the square were three great bars. One with an amazing selection of American music; complete set of of Jefferson Airplane albums, yeah I know I'm dating myself; in the juke box and any number of very lovely Rincon ladies. The owner's daughter drove a Mustang convertible. Of course, one had to tread carefully due to the any number of boy friends hanging around outside!

No sunblock was needed on Saturday Farley. We all agreed we would have traded 4 or 5 degrees of temperature for consistent sun on the rock. Nevertheless a good, very enjoyable time was had by all.

Enjoy The Paper People. It is one of the most creative, original things I have ever read.

Hope you time in Chile is very productive and very enjoyable. --- Bill

In that case, here's some Spanish to get you started:

1. Hi, I'm Mr. Right. Someone said you were looking for me.

Hola, soy el Señor Derecho. Alguien ha dicho que estaba buscando para mí.

2. What does it feel like to be the most beautiful girl in this room?

¿Cómo se siente al ser la más bella muchacha en esta sala?

3. Are you lost? Because heaven's a long way from here.

¿Estás perdido? Porque el cielo es un largo camino desde aquí.

4. Hello, I'm a thief, and I'm here to steal your heart.

Hola, soy un ladrón, y estoy aquí para robar tu corazón.

5. Hey I just realized this, but you look alot like my next girlfriend.

Hola Acabo de esta realidad, pero usted busca mucho al igual que mi próxima novia.


You're welcomeCool

Hey everyone - hope you guys are getting out and enjoying the east coast rock & ice! Any epic stories?

Been in Denver for 2 weeks now, and its hard not knowing all the climbing spots and being part of a great climbing community yet.

Happy climbing!

Cheers!

Hey Jason --- Denver's gain is our loss. Best of luck out there! Hey to Jenny for me.

Greg --- Belated Robert Burns Birthday greetings. Hope you did it up Chile style down there. Read your recent TR of climbing with godfather. Bit envious. Weather has not been cooperating up here. I can't even get Coldweather Kevin out!

Todd you lurker --- Saw Jay's recent TR of the outing with you and Val. You guys are hardcore! The heck with the climbing, I would have curled up in a ball and started crying on the approach! Good job guys! (Tried to leave a comment on the blog but it didn't seem to stick.)

Thanks for the Burns' Day cheer, Bill. I was in San Fabian putting up a new route. TR on that will be out soon on climbing.com (not my personal blog). Maybe in a couple of days it'll be there with pics. As for today, i have a spanish test tomorrow. GULP!Shocked

I was bellyaching the whole way (had to wear shoes too) but it was well worth the slog!
edit to add: looks like your comment on the blog is there and Jay posted a reply.

Been awhile. Been thinking about you and meaning to give you a call for a couple of weeks. Just checked and I have lost your phone number. PM it to me and I will give you a call to catch.

Meanwhile hope all is very well with you and the family and everyone is happy and healthy.

That's the positive spirit!!!

Got your PM will give a call soon to catch up. Maybe we can both go over to the Daks and climb with Todd. Need to get up to the "secret crag" in NE Kingdom with Ed this year. Be great to have you join us. So much rock, so little time!

I'd love to join your group! I'm sure this time will be a nice day. Wink

I have yet set a time for the Daks. I need to contact Todd to see what time of year is the best. I imagine their bug season is like ours, but this is his back yard and he knows best.

Talk with you soon.
