Stef, I'll give you full permission to post a picture of me in your guidebook. It will draw women and men alike. :wink:

Stef--

being a guide is much more than simply being a paid sex slave for bored, middle-aged women...

If you are SERIOUS about this, I think you ought to move in with The Chief and his wife on the Sierra eastside...and let The Chief apprentice you on becoming a guide. You can pay your way by getting up at 3am every morning and chopping wood, shoveling snow, cooking all the meals and doing the dishes, walking the dog, etc.

The Chief will slowly shape you into his own mold...you will develop a military-style discipline and rigor...and not just be a boy toy for old yuppie chicks from Los Angeles...who will talk about you on FaceBook

plenty of sketchy steep alpine rock and hard blue ice up in those High Sierra mountain thingys....The Chief will put you out on the sharp end of the rope...brutal approach marches...massive, heavy packs....long, long runouts on steep mixed climbing, etc...and after a few years of this mental and physical torture...you will be a GUIDE.

best of luck
