Posting your advertisement in this (Northern California) forum makes sense. Or to the California forum. But did you really need to spam your book to eight regional forums to take up half of the list of topics in here?

Poor etiquette, particularly when it is explicitly against the forum rules (no advertising, not repeating the same post). Kudos to you for working on a guide and being excited about it, but don't be an ass.

My apologies if I broke any "rules".
Getting the word out to people who can benefit and use the guide is slow going, so I appreciate your patience. If you don't like the post skip it.

Posting a California guidebook advertisement in Colorado is "on topic"? I could fly to Northern California from pretty much any US state in less time than I could "road trip" there from CO. I'm glad not every guidebook author, or purveyor of whatever climbing-related item, feels free to use that definition of on topic to decide which forums to spam.

It's fine though, I'll survive. I find 8 copies of the same thread in the regional forum annoying. You found my post annoying. We both vented and feel better.

Um, there is a flaw in your logic... "I could fly to Northern California from pretty much any US state in less time than I could "road trip" there from CO."

It isn't about Road Tripping from Colorado to California. It's about Road Tripping IN California.

You can fly to California from Colorado (or anywhere), but then what? You are still going to have to get in a car and drive to climb, aren't you? Thus the Road Trip guide and posts.

And people in Colorado are more likely to read their regional forum than California's, thus the multiple posts.

...but it doesn't have anything to do with Colorado.

So people who live in Colorado shouldn't aspire to climb in California or anywhere else?
I've climbed in Colorado and used a guidebook for Colorado. And that guidebook had nothing to do with California. Tongue

I've climbed in Utah and you DO have excellent climbing. But no surf Frown
Go to

http://www.slatervision.com/id21.html

to see the T of C and find out just how many bitchin places are in this guide. Mainly drive by stuff, ideal for visitors and first/second timers. Tons of out of print stuff too, and even new areas with no previously written beta. People are ordering through this post so thank you! Let me know if you want a copy.

Have fun!
