I'm looking for dirtbags and day jobbers

So, there’s a LOT going on over here in the quiet little world of a climber girl. In addition to work, and other work, and then all the work I do just for fun, I’m getting ready for another trip, and trying to get my living situation in order, and my freelance writing is starting to pick up… and… phew. I’m getting tired just thinking about it all.

I’m going to need your help.

From the dirtbaggers in the house
I need to find a few “road warriors,” “dirtbags,” or whatever you identify yourself as, who’d be willing to speak with me about your life as a climber on the road. Whether you’ve been living the life for a few months, or a few years — I’d like to pick your brain (and borrow a photo or two) for an upcoming feature for one of my projects. Please send me an email if you’re willing to speak with me — I know a few of you are out there already but I haven’t had time yet to find email addresses and get in touch that way.

Climbers with jobs
Next, I’m also trying to find climbers with jobs to profile for this site, and, possibly for other projects. Are you a climber who’s managed to find (or is getting closer to finding) a work / climbing balance that feels sustainable? What have you learned over the years about the way you need to live and work, in order to be a climber? If you’re interested in having this conversation with me, please drop me an email to get started.

Thank you, as always, for reading, and I look forward to engaging more through these conversations!
