Re: New Adirondack Rock Climbing Guide 3/12/2008 10:28:22 PM   (Total replies: 1)
That looks awesome! I guess I'll have to carve out some time to spend in the daks this summer. THe main thing that's kept me away is the lack of info, but looks like that problem is solved.

Very true. If the focus here is to do as you said, and get the local church more connected to the climbers, than doing our own thing would certainly be counter-productive.

 I suppose that would also make a more lasting change for the people involved. How was the turnout for the dinner last year?

I think either is a great idea. Also, would the area church be interested in going in on an outdoor service? I feel like my idea of church at a crag, or near a crag, or anywhere outside, for that matter is somewhat out of the box. I guess that's because my idea of what church should be is pretty out of the box. Mostly because I feel like the box that God has been put into isn't working anymore. There are plenty of exceptions, but I feel like for the most part modern church is failing. Todd, I ...

Wel, being backed by something would be nice, but I wasn't even thinking that big. Just a group of Christians having fellowship and then climbing. I know I could round up a few interested people. How many C4C people are reasonably local to the Gunks?

Crag Church 1/29/2008 11:55:43 PM   (Total replies: 1)
So I've had this idea for a little while, and I want to see what others think. I've been thinking of bringing church to the crags. For me, it would probably be the Gunks, but it could be where ever. I want to get a group of people, and just start having like a once a month kind of thing (more if people want it), and just meet early on sunday. We could have a makeshift church service at the cliff, maybe in the Uberfall or even on the GT ledge if we feel daring. Then we can climb the rest of ...

Well, by then, I'll be married and living in Boulder, CO. I don't know what our living situation will be yet, and it depends how many are going; but if it is within our means, you all will be welcome to stay with us on the way there and back. SLC is about 7-8 hours from Boulder, so it may make for a good stop, depending on what kind of driving you had planned. Also, I would very likely tag along, for the last leg if I'm able. But I won't know until the end of summer, when life in Boulder ...

Calling all todds 3/3/2008 10:41:35 PM   (Total replies: 0)
Hey todd, and/or everyone else. I've got some time off soon, Thursday 3/13 - Sunday 3/16. I was thinking that I haven't spent any time in the Daks yet this year. Although I'd be up for anything. If you are, or anyone else is interested in getting together and climbing on things, let me know. I'm game for anything, Ice, rocks, booulder, mountains. Peace out!

I will be getting married to a girl who lives in Boulder and moving out there in July. We're always up for hiking. I'm always up for some 14ers, especially in the winter.

Presidential Winter Traverse 2/19/2008 12:27:54 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I will be leaving thursday morning to head up to the White mountains in NH and make an attempt on the presidential traverse with two friends. It should be an awesome esperince, but anyone that knows the Mt. Washington area knows about the weather. Weather is THE factor for the traverse and makes the difference between an easy hike and a death march. I firmly believe that we are adequately experienced and prepared, or else I wouldn't be going, but none the less, I still seek the Lord's favor ...
