For many of us who “work for the man” our time away from work for climbing is limited to weekends and the occasional week-long splurge. This is what makes long weekends like Memorial Day and the upcoming Labor Day holiday so special. The ability to tack on an extra day to your regular weekend roadtrip can make, for example, driving 16 hours roundtrip for a couple days of climbing at the Red River Gorge much more palatable, and thus such opportunities shouldn’t be wasted.
Unfortunately, events have conspired against my taking advantage of the long weekend for anything climbing related so I’m forced to live vicariously through you, the reader. I’d be very interested to hear where everyone is going climbing this weekend so feel free to make me jealous share your plans in the comments.
