I've got about 10 months before my next big adventure, and I need a training partner... specifically, I'm looking for someone who's into serious weight training. I'm on a gaining cycle for probably the next 8 to 12 weeks, then I go into lots of endurance, weights included.
I have a largely complete weight-room in my garage (squat rack, bench, bars, olympic dumbells) and 2 bouldering walls. I'm in Gardnerville, NV.
Seeing as i work for Couloir, and I'm trying to be a professional writer... The "trip report" should be in your hands around Thanksgiving. It just went off to the printer, last Wednesday... I think it will prove to be worth the wait, but I''ll be curious to hear what everyone thinks.
As for next year......... are you sitting down??.........

I'm working with some pretty serious dudes to raise the money, as we speak. So far, we have a well-respected photographer, a cinematographer, and 1 name that you will certainly recognize. I'll let all of the cats out of the bag, when we have our website up, etc... It's still a little far away to be able to say 100% who will make it on the trip.
P.S. - if you've got about $60K to spare.... look no farthter

I was wondering what happened to your 100 paragraph essay/rants. Man, I miss the old school Zach posts/trip reports. I can still remember the one about your former co-workers/job and your desire to move to the mnts. At first I thought Dostie was working you to death but I was wrong--your channeling it into a career. Sweet dude!! Good luck!! I'm looking forward to the article.
Sishapangma!!!! Holy shit. Good luck with that as well. 60K! WOW.
