Zero this season,
zero last season.

But I'm still happy with my decade average.

One trip to the local road cut.  I guess that counts  ::)

I'll be getting out on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday though!!!!   ;D
If you want to get to the peak, you ought to climb without giving it too much thought.

Nothing yet....however 3 days up North next week should put me in good standing. Keep an eye out for a trio of slightly hung over sandbaggers on your favorite icicle.  ;D

Al, can we expect you out on the town for a gig next week?

Todd - thanks for asking <grin>

playing a big shindig this Saturday at Cranmore. kickoff for the ski season. from 4-8 with the bonfire lighting at 4. it's a good band, if I do say so. playing Monday night at the Parks Open Mic. that has been really happening lately. then running the Open Mic - Hoot Night - at the Wildcat on Tuesday with Jami Johnson. she plays in my normal band. the same group is playing New Year's weekend at the Red Parka. that one should be a blast but I'm sure it's going to be totally packed. if you're in town drop by any of these. if you play an instrument definitely come to the Open Mic nights.

Well Al, I will try and get Steve Jacques to re-introduce us Tuesday (we did meet in passing some years ago, on I think Standard route, while belaying)... as for the open mic invite - unfortunatly the only instrument I play is the Church Key on a beer bottle!

I'm hosting the Open Mic at the Wildcat Tavern in Jackson from 9-12 with my partner Jami Johnson. it's right in the heart of Jackson, across from the Snowflake Inn. turn in to Jackson at the covered bridge & it's about 1/4 mile on the right. they have good food & it's a nice place to hang out.
