How far are you from Red River Gorge? I have spent probably close to a few years of my life there climbing, guiding, and teaching.
I'm in southeastern Kentucky on a mountain
We are all clueless and that is good. "I don't know mind," is the best place to be on most things, as it keeps you humble. Even if I think I know something, I still listen and question.
Or maybe I am just a clueless newbie and don't know where to look for correct soil or what I am doing lol!
