The Guiding Life

New River Rendezvous ’11

About this time every year, Lindsay and I head to the New River Gorge for the annual New River Rendezvous to teach a few clinics and promote Fox Mountain Guides. The enjoyment for us really comes in meeting up with old friends as well as making a few new ones! I think we sometimes spend more time chatting with friends from NC than we ever do when we are in Brevard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While we did get some good food, I was lucky enough to pick up some food poisoning – nothing that could keep me down – just felt like really bad altitude illness without the ability to go any lower to get better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We put on two different clinics this year, an advanced rescue clinic as well as a beginning climbers clinic. Both went really well, and folks were psyched afterwards!

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was also the Access Fund’s 20th birthday, so people were way hyped-up about that and carried that energy throughout the festival. Here are some more photos of friends and the festivities!
