This is taking a lot longer than I thought!! My "to do" list adds two things for every one I finish!!

Meanwhile, time off is a trip to the gym (though I spend time between problems browsing magazines and asking questions. . .) with membership comes a key to the gym. . . maybe I'll crash here next time I'm in town;/

I talked to a couple groups of art students, and am waiting to hear back. They seemed very hesitant to paint my car (you don't see much of that here, though ads/logos on cars. . . ), but I think they just need to see it. Then they'd see they can't possibly mess it up!! meanwhile, I kinda want to wash it, but if I get it painted, I'd have to wash it again. . . it rained a little last night. . .

I have to meet a few folks at school this afternoon, then maybe a quick workout than down to Gwangju to check out the gyms there and get a head start on an article for the Gwangju News. If folks are climbing at Mudeungsan Sat I'd join. . . maybe even Sun if Ricky wanted? Sat I plan to head to Mokpo (or Yeongam, near Mokpo) to visit my friend Ricky. I haven't seen her in ages (well, months and months!) and we need to catch up!

Ricky really should write the intro to Mokpo for the book, as she lived in Mokpo about 3 years and basically learned to climb here. Suddenly there's this wave of foreign climbers in this remote city (at the very SW tip of the peninsula) and the feel has changed, but Ricky was first, and I can relate to her experience climbing and training with the Koreans. When I first came to Korea, there were no other foreign climbers (well, Frederic, the French engineer for 6 months) to speak of. . . so while I love KOTR, I kinda miss the closeness with the Korean community. Anyway, Ricky is a very funny, open, strong but vulnerable, beautiful person (I read her blog before I met her, and she is even better in person!!) I am happy to say that Ricky (or my sister) are my highest matches on Facebook "Are You Like Me? quizzes:)

Need to get organized again!

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion

- drawn the lines

- write names and grades (an example…
