Wouldn't he have to get hired first?

Oh... well, nothing to worry about then.

And after 30+ years of subscribing to Climbing, I have terminated my subscription. Climbing used to speak for the masses, not the near misses.

Jeremiah, for what gym do you work/guide? This is a fair question considering your public stance. So, who is it that has hired you?

I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but Jeremiah has not posted since page 2. Greg, I know you want to save your blog, but it might be a good idea for you, too, to let it die.

Just sayin'

Thanks for the advice, Josh, but I'm not going to quit the blog. Despite the mess, I've actually still recieved a fair amount of PMs from folks saying they like the blog and will continue to read it.

Jeremiah is in Chicago on a family vacation with his girlfriend, parents, and sister(s), but he and I both decided from the beginning to not allow a repeat of the Brotherhood thread. I personally think that neither of us have said anything in this thread that was remotely as inflamatory as what was said in the Brotherhood thread. In fact, I think we've both been above the fray.

I'll have another blog post out in a few days for those who do enjoy reading it.

I could be mistaken, but I thought that he meant your participation in this thread as opposed to the blog itself.

I think some of those that don't enjoy reading it do enjoy flaming it.

OK, I am confused. If I test drive a Kia and tell the salesperson that I am too tall and my hair hits the ceili ng, then RC.com makes money?

Edge, I think you'll find that all but two of my threads regarding my blog have been in the Trip Reports forum, with the vast majority of my updates coming in one, single thread - the Weekend Warrior thread, which has always been in the trip report forum anyway. I've only done new threads when there was something completely new (the moab thread, the yosemite thread, the colorado thread were all trip reports).

I was referring to this thread, not your blog. Although it's not really my thing, if it makes you happy then keep doing it.

I am a certified TRSM instructor. I am a lead instructor at an outdoor climbing camp. Yesterday it rained, so we were forced inside. We played some sharks and minnows, did an obstacle course, and played a rope swing game called Peanut Butter and Jelly. I happen to kick ass at this game but my team lost for only like the second or third time all summer. It was rough!

Maybe I should start a blog to let people know how hard the "guiding" life is.

oh man... i haven't read this whole thread yet, but... sharks and minnows is fun.

Does this look like winter... or Mt washington to you?

so mount washington is one thing. went up it once... tuckerman ravine turns into a waterfall when it rains, in case anyone was curious. but it was raining when we started, and it'd been raining for quite some time, and it's not that much fun to not climb in the rain so.... hiking. yeah. it was cold... there was snow at the top and this was june. but the WG will go in as few as 3 pitches, i know because i've done it that way. it was my very first* multipitch. and you can see the whole god damn mountain from a 4 lane highway. if you're concerned about your lack of speediness, wouldn't you just wait till there weren't clouds?




*this is kind of a lie. i did a "two pitch" route at the red before this, but both pitches were only a total of ~100 feet high.

Does anyone else think we have some sick intardwebs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%BCnchausen_syndrome_by_proxy going on between gymburns and his buddy. It seems that greg can't stop tossing old jeremy under the bus to get some attention for himself and to get people to actually speak with him.

So I'm trying to present this as a friend: take down that post about the guiding life. It might get Jeremiah fired. No employer is going to want a guide who writes on the internet about courting danger. Furthermore, if you ever have an accident while guiding and someone decides to sue, you will rue the day you posted that stuff.

That is all.
Because, by all means, the guide world shouldn't lose that one.

I don't think your writing is ready for publication, not professional publication at any rate. Blogging is an excellent place to allow your writing to mature, though I don't think I'll have the time to stay current. I doubt this matriculation will happen until you can step back and gain some objectivity. Why are you writing this? Who is your audience? What do you expect to gain from using the present tense? Your reality shouldn't need that much gloss. After all, your life is better than my vacation.

Dude or Dudress - Is the web url on your profile your work? What about the Pelorian Pages, indicated at the bottom as an image source? Yours as well?
