Gyeonsangnam is the province over to the east of you. . . (the one Busan is surrounded by) but I'll probably be more in western Gyeongnam. . . if you could get to Jinju, where I am now, tonight, we could just leave in the AM. . .but alas, even to here (prety near!) there's no direct bus. . . so first to Suncheon (40 mins, W3,500, every 5-10 mins from 5Am -11PM) then to Jinju. Last bus is at 7:40, it takes 1h30 and costs 5,900. I think a bunch of folks are going to be at the climbing wall near the bus station today. . . so you could meet there, depending when you finish.
Ganhyeon is in Gangwondo, the province east of Seoul. . . see my "getting there" info on that post. . . I think you're better off here until a long weekend!
