My big day is here. After many months I am finally going to announce my arrival amongst the big names. My fingers are sore from the constant workouts. It has been a gradual progression, but now I am about to claim my El Capitan… 1000 posts on Chockstone.

But what should I write for my milestone post? I don’t really know. I log on to see if someone has contributed something for me to bounce off. Alas no, I have written the last post on every topic and I seem to have stopped any further conversation dead in its tracks. Oh well, wait five minutes and surely M9 will write something. M9 is my hero. With over 5700 posts to his name, he is one of the top two or three posters on the site. I know he will be watching me, waiting for me to make that 1000th post. He will be the first to congratulate me.

It’s a beautiful day outside. I could have gone climbing with some friends, but my 1000th post was too important to wait any longer. Shit, I’ve just realized that I should have gone climbing. Then I could have bought up my milestone post with a trip report… what a way to bring up my 1000th post! Not only would I be congratulated by M9 but he would reminisce about his early days and compare our respective experiences and pass on some words of wisdom. He has already invited me to join him at Buffalo. We are going to aid some classic free routes. I can’t wait. That’s what climbing is all about… hanging off protection and standing in etriers.

To be continued…
