It's the expenses paid bit. Any old bum can pay for a month at araps.

You sound so disillusioned! Araps is a great place for a holiday. So much good climbing, so convenient, such reliable weather. Pussies about the weather can stick to spring and autumn, hermits can hide in the North campground and run to the Gramps on long weekends. When it wasn't raining this spring, it was just stunning - it was really quiet, green and lush, lots of echidnas, roos, wedgies and stumpies. BTW, I had a stumpy in my garden the other day, which I thought was outrageously cute, even if he did eat all my bok choy.

It's the expenses paid bit. Almost any old bum can pay for a month at Font.

That's why the almost!

I have a new problem. A month isn't long enough for a climbing holiday.

Not really. It's just that dry country. It freaks me out, gnaws at my psyche. I loved seeing water EVERYWHERE in tassie. It's reptile-brain stuff I'm sure, but being near water and knowing it's around makes me happy; knowing it's a long way away spooks me.

It is when the longest climbing holiday you've ever had is 3 nights in Wales.

Actually, I hear Thailand has many hospitals. You could get a sex change or some cosmetic surgery whilst you are there.

I'd encourage you to set your standards high.

Can I suggest renaming Yosemite to Western USA and Fontainebleau to Road trip of France. A solid month in the Valley or 'Bleau might leave one a bit stir-crazy (although the food's considerably better in the latter), and why should Spain get the road trip instead of individual crags?

Also - England! - although it's all under 6 feet of snow at the mo - the guys went ice-climbing on Stanage yesterday - found Irvines body!

Maybe a lifetime is about the right length of time.

Any of those road trips definately need way more than a month!

I have a rain phobia. It probably comes from living out here too long.

The beer is warm.

Simey's seen off all the harlots.

The choppers only fly you out if your dehydrated

The coke blew away in a hot northerly

food is obtained from rubbish bins

the accom is full of little black ants that bite

I don't know if I could do a month at Indian Creek.

I'm not that into sport climbing.

Would pick the month at font but have already done it.... twice so spain it is. Also the abseling into the bar is not all its cracked up to be, but the climb to do the abseil is awesome.
