Thanks for all the input Alan, it was exactly what I was looking for!

And to answer the question (that amazingly enough seems to be what all my friends are
asking me too) no, I just don't see the availability of bouldering opportunities
coming up often enough to carry the shoes, and the chalk bag would be a nigthmare
after it got wet.

I guess it's just one more sacrifice, I reallly wish I could travel the country and
climb all summer, but that requires more than time and money, it requires a partner!
I'm REALLY going to miss my guitars, I spend more time with them than doing anything

So let's see, I'm going to walk all day in all sorts of miserable weather, every day
for four months. Endure blisters, sore feet ankles knees and every other body part.
Starve myself, curse my gear, and sell my car to finance the whole deal. YUP! That's
what I want to do....June is right around the corner!
