At last some time at home.
Unfortunately the office work is hectic at the moment. So much to get sorted. Diff is working on our website and new blog as well as sorting out a special edition E11 T-Shirt in time for Xmas. I'm busy sorting out distribution for E11 in various far flung lands. Just sorted out a deal in Spain. E11 along with Set in Stone and First Ascents are going to be bundled into a special triple 'trad' DVD pack retailing at 60 euros. (In fact I say I sorted it out - in fact Al Lee from Posing Productions sorted this one - thanks mate)
We have got new video cameras on order which sould be here soon. Sony's very latest model. First batch that arrives in the country apparantly. Moving up to High Def. for filming doesn't come without problems. Diff does most of our editing and has a smart new PC arriving tomorrow.
What else is happening? The Sunday Times are running a feature and review of E11 this weekend. We have been busy preparing them an exclusive 4 minute edit of the film that we be hosted on their website. Aparantly it will be in the section next to Jeremy Clarkson 'On The Edge' or something similar sounding.
Next week we have BBC Scotland coming to our offices to shoot a 6 minute news story that will air on The Adventure Show sometime in the new year. Fiona says that I better to some cleaning. Hmm, she has a point.
I'm procrastinating at the moment with this blog stuff. Instead I should be finishing off my 'Mixed Messages' article for Climb Magazine but I'm not sure how to pitch it. The deadline was today which I've missed.
At last I'm getting back into my training. This week has been busy at the Schoolyard with a lot of folks over to train and that always helps to give you the impetus to train hard. Tonight we set a lot of new routes. That's the most fun, a bit of competition is good in training, just makes you try that bit harder. The Ice World Cup is only 8 weeks away though and I feel miles away from where I need to be for it. Ok. Must buckle down to training properly now. No excuses.
