Yeh, its a bummer but the temps have come down with it, friction has improved on the South faces and the "Gradalle" just might go in these conditions...I'm off to give it a go!

Get rid of all that wanna be adventure shit on your site Josh and give us more Courtney. High heeled boots, latex suits, naked. Is she into jelly wrestling?

Whoooo! Totally stoked that I can now officially joined the "no more uni for a few months" group!

Stoked that its 3 weeks since my injury, my finger and shoulder are slowly getting better, and only 3 more weeks until araps! Fingers crossed...hmmm well I should probably better cross some toes instead.

Stoked to have repeated a couple of routes I did 6 years ago and found them quite easy this time around, whereas originally I'd thought they were pretty stiff.

Not so stoked that I used to be able to remember all the climbs I'd done move for move, but barely recognised these climbs, let alone the moves on them. :-\

yep Canada still. I would normally care more about the lack of ice but I hurt my wrist a few weeks ago so I couldn't have climbed anyway. Hopefully all will be well in a couple weeks.

The Selkirks (ie Rogers Pass) has enough snow for decent b-c turns so I might have to head out there next week. After feeling like a gumby for the first couple days today I remembered how to ski again... stoked for skiing!

Rogers Pass is great, well worth getting out of bed for. Can't say enough about Bugs, some shots from my last heli-trip http://sports.webshots.com/album/558189173quTNDz

Good snow here now, first real winter blizzard hit over the weekend and it snowed big right down to 400m. I spent time on the weekend tuning skis, looking forward to getting some miles in the legs.

heli skiing! traveling in style... I've only been up to the Bugs in summer, I have wondered about skiing there. only problem is I'm too cheap so I have to skin up, & the ACC hut in the Bugs is closed in winter because its gets wacked by slides every now & then. I don't think the road is plowed in winter either.

Stoked that fricken interview is over (high powered bunch of 5 people sitting around a conference phone asking me brain twisting questions - they were in Noumea - they wanted me to answer one of the questions in French. After I said ooh la, la, la plume du ma tante a few times, I think they figured out I was le bullshiting). Now I have to wait for two stressed out weeks to find out if I get the dream job. Double triple aaaaaarg!!!

So now we know you are prepared to move for work, why aren't you chasing that dream job available in Nati???? L'escalade est super ici and we can even talk about it in English.

That's what I was thinking!

Come on Mulchy! With your "degree in vegetables" and all your extended Nimbin experience, you would make you a perfect Sustainability Officer.

Shit! You even make your own beer. How bloody sustainable is that?

You are a shoe in.

Tell them that you bought the Getz as a low emission alternative to a larger car. They will love ya!

Tell em about all that Greencorps and LEAP stuff you used to do.

Tell them about the vege garden.

Tell em about the worm farm. I know you don't have one but they don't. Tell em.

Tell them you collect old climbing gear to send to the Solomons for the children.

Tell em you don't use deoderant with aluminium in it.

Tell em you compost.

Tell em you ride a bike. I know you hate bikes. But they don't. Tell em.

Come on, Mulchy. It would be great living in Nati and climbing at Araps all the time. Trips to the Grampians for a bit of a a change and some time in the bush. Heaps of rock! Come on dude. I'd have a place to crash. It would be perfect.

I think the idea is perfectly sustainable.

I know, but swanning around the Pacific implementing wonderful ICT solutions (including OLPC) would be my dream job. I think I f*cked the interview though as I smoked 20 ciggies before hand and didn't have any water on hand and my throat clogged up. I then said the classic line "sorry, my throat's all froggy", and there were 3 French people on the other end of the line. Faux pas, n'est-ce pas?
