I hope my book will help cats like that in amping up their own self-discovery.
"serenity now" , Lloyd....
But what you and lloyd both seem to be missing is that gregmerz specifically came on here ASKING for a recommendation. Armed with that info, he could be an informed consumer and get what he wants. He also appears to be smart enough to ask a question or two at the area before committing to paying for a lesson.
If he follows the advice of you and lloyd, he WON'T take a lesson and he has NO chance of getting a really good, helpful instructor.
To answer the question about JH, I would honestly say that there are at least 40 instructors here that I would feel very comfortable recommending or even taking a lesson from myself. That's out of 179 adult Alpine instructors, of whom about 75 are primarily adult private instructors. That's pretty good odds if you ask me.
