I have a copy of New England Bouldering 2nd edition (green cover) by Tim Kemple.  Its listed on sites for over $200 based on being out of print.  What do you think this book is realistically worth? (if i were to sell it, feel free to PM offers)

Personally, I would've paid $40 for it a year ago, but with the new edition coming out soon I'd rather just wait.

I would think you could get $40 or $50 for it on ebay, maybe a bit higher if a bidding war ensues...

There's a third edition coming out soon? Where did you see that?

In theory there is.  Tim was here back in November, but he just had a baby and is pretty busy with his full-time job (pro photog) so I wouldn't hold my breath on the 3rd edition...

I asked Jeff Achey over at Wolverine Publishing, last fall he said they were aiming for a late spring release, then last month he told me they were behind but still hoping to get it out by the end of the year, fall at the earliest. As Joe suggests, "hoping" could be the operative word there.

Hey anyone want to confirm some grades?

not that any one wants to climb  things that are not published (not yet)

is Tim Kemple old enough to have a son in his 30s? Or does he have a brother , and sister-I law in Darango. Colo.?

I swear we are working on it. Gunning for fall. Diaper changing, you know - it saps a man ...

Glad to hear this, Jeff!  Let me know if there is anything I can do to help, my diaper changing days are way behind me...
