I'm always a little slow on ordering things.

Am I missing something. It says if I buy both (and I want both) it's $45 and I save $4.90. Then it says shipping is $10.99 unless I send it media mail (which, from what I've read does not sound like a good option - I don't want to end up with a brand new damaged guide book!). So by ordering I "save" $4.90 by spending $10.99 - which is a net loss of $6.09. Am I missing something? If they're selling them together for $49.90, shouldn't I just wait.

The cheapest option is to get the code to Ray's place and just pick them up yourself when they are out and about...

Josephine, you figured out our secret formula! Damn you. Please leave your math skills to teaching your students and not ruining my chances at finally getting the gold Escalade I've been dreaming of.

The "damaged" copies aren't really to much different from a "perfect" copy. Maybe a crease or a bent cover/pages. These "damages" happen the first time you take it to the crag anyways.

Take it to the crag??? why would I do that. I was going to get it signed by that dreamy guide book author and have it framed for above my fire place.

Yeah, I agree with that... my 2nd edition copy got pretty beat up, but that was when I was a "noob" and didn't know my way around the gorge... my 3rd edition copy stays in pristine condition... it doesn't leave my house. Really, it doesn't leave either my living room or my bathroom, lol. I like to play this game where I have people read me a description to a route and I tell them what route, its grade, and where its located. I'm pretty good, actually I'm a champ, undefeated. I plan to keep my 4th edition (both parts) in a locked glass case in my living room. People can see it, but not touch it... I'll only turn the pages with a pair of tweezers... these will be special tweezers that won't be used for anything but touching the 4th edition guides.

What's going on in that bathroom Todd? Are the pages around Ray's bio stuck together?

Tweezers will damage the pages. Try white cloth gloves, which is what you'd use for a priceless book.

There are such things as book protectors on the market, FYI, for those worried about damaging their books.
