    My name is Paul Forbrich, an old friend of Lantien Chu. I would enjoy linking up with her online. I currently live in Taiwan, teaching in the Linguistics Dept. at Chung Yuan Christian University in Chung Li. Life is wonderful here for me, with the priviledge of teaching undergrads and working with Graduate Students on their Thieses.

    I hope to hear from her soon.

    Best Wishes, Paul

    Hi Shelli! I really enjoyed your trip blog, photos and insights. My son, Willy Ratz and his friend Joe McGowan also climbed the Grand in August (with Rob Hess) and came home with the typical 16 yr old boy report “um, easy, no big deal”. I am still hoping for a little more detail from them, especially as they were scholarship students and we hope they will speak about their climb in the spring. My daughter also climbed the mountain, 8 yrs ago, with her dad. She was 12 and found it pretty… pretty easy. Kids. Whatever. Anyway, it was great to hear your perspective, which I suspect, is more the usual first time climber perspective. Glad you liked Julia and Nate… all the JHMG guides are fantastic. Would love to meet you sometime, as I am also in Lander. I coach swimming and live at the swim pool most days. Stop by if you’re headed up to the canyon…. I’m at 8 Pheasant Run Dr, 349-9850
