Could we get the missing New England states (Maine, Mass and RI) listed in the Eastern States regional forum? That way the latest posts will show up on those states main page.

Thanks

..and what to do about Penn, Del and NJ? Either they would go in North Eastern or they plus the Virginias could make up a mid Atlantic region.

And what about Hawaii? Hawaii was on the front cover of the last issue of Climbing mag! It has been in the mag 20 some times, we do have climbing here!

I think adding a MidAtlantic forum would be awesome. As it is I check the Eastern Forum and the Southern Forum. Could you add West Virginia to the MidAtlantic Forum as well for my personal convenience? :-)

I think NC and TN should just have their own forum. That way we can talk about getting drunk on moonshine and bangin' our cousins without fear of the Northeasterners giving us shit. Hell, throw in WV too. Dunno what the hell happened to Virginia - that state belongs in the Northeast.

Please do not put VA in the Northeast. I'm on the eastern peninsula of VA. It takes me twice as long to get to the Gunks (often considered the southernmost crag of the Northeast) as it does the northernmost NC crags- essentially this makes VA more southern than northeastern. Not to mention that the only real worthy and significant climbing in VA imho is Old Rag Mountain. And that's only a hop, skip, and jump away from both Franklin WV and Seneca Rocks. So if they're not in the Northeast, then VA shouldn't be either.

When I think northeast, I think New England. Maine, NH, VT, Mass, CT, RI, NY. Anything below that is mid-atlantic. You can't call PA and NJ "southern" by any means, and by that same token, I don't really think you can call VA northeastern.

You could leave it as it is, in MP purgatory, because there's not much here, but it definitely doesn't belong in the Northeast. Southern states if anything at all. Just my opinion.

I agree with both of these.

I think in that case Arkansas should be in there too. There isn't much else I do for fun besides moonshining and such.

Ha, I can't believe I left out Kentucky. I once blew an on sight there because a guy in the nearby parking lot decided to show off his gun collection by taking target practice at the fence post. Scared the shit outta me.

I haven't spent much time in Arkansas but it is surrounded by states like Louisiana, Mississippi and freakin' Texas - I can only imagine the good times that happen in the woods down there.

As long as we are on the topic, this book is a must read for any New England climber. It's the version of Climb! for the Northeast and a fantastic historical read. Then go on and read the rest of Guy Waterman's book.

Great book! I used it quite a bit for my undergrad thesis, The Creation and Development of Style and Ethics in New England Climbing.

Nice!! You read or use "Forest and Crag"? Man I only made it a little way through this bible of NE hiking and climbing. 1000 pages!!

And I'm glad I picked up my copy for like $10. Apparently it's a collector's item.

Kind of along the lines of adding forums, but is it possible to streamline the regional forums with the partner forums to put them both in the same order- at least on the mobile app?
