I posted this question on the "general chat" forum, but since it impacts voting for me, does anyone have an updated link to the train timetable? The link on the sidebar isn't active anymore, and there isn't a way to access it via the English side of the website. The search page in Korean would be fine, but my Korean isn't strong enough to find the search page I'm home in the States or I'd call 1330.

I'm basically trying to find out if there is a train from Mokpo (I'll be moving over there in about a week and a half) to Wonju.

Thanks!

Hey Jessica, as Mokpo is fast becoming a KOTR centre (Ricky and Maggie are there too) I'll post this publicly. You can get a train (reg or KTX) from Mokpo to Daejeon, and from Daejeon regular trains run to Ganhyeon (you can go to Wonju, but Ganhyeon has it's own station too). I don't have time-table details, but I'll check. It should be possible to book straight through on a reg train to Ganhyeon, but a KTX toDaejeon ansd switch there would be faster/ more expensive.

No direct trains from Mokpo. . . you have to go through Seoul or better yet, Daejeon!

I could do Ganhyeon if T and I arrived in Daejeon beforehand. Getting back might be tricky, though.

I assume my car (and foot) will both still be working by then-- schedule permitting (don't know mine yet; but I'll want to head out as early as possible) there's room for y'all. . . get in touch when I get back if you're interested! We can do the sprint to Jeonju for the train thing again, but I can't/won't drive like Rick to get there!

Yeah depending on scheds and stuff there might be room in our car (toobonnie) for a couple...the Yeosu crew have 1st dibbs on these seats though. Maybe we should set up a car-pool mini-thread after we decide where and whens?

Thanks Jake.

Do they have the timetable search on the Korean side of the Barota site? That was one of the greatest tools for figuring out how to get around!

Just wanted to let you all know that since it's seeming that the M&G will be the weekend of the 14-16, Les and I won't be there. His mum will be in town, and my parents are coming to visit during that time, too. Bummer, but I'll be sure to show up for the winter M&G.

Have a great time!

There are min-baks for the tentless-- others may want to join you in this and we can help you to book ahead. Usually some folks have room to share in tents. You might be able tio borrow a tent-- check with your Korean friends and co-workers or your gym. A hammock or open bivy at this time of year may be plesant.

Parents are welcome to Kan-hyon! We took Mary's mom there (despite her minimal climbing experience!) She enjoyed the hike, the food, and meeting some of the climbers! My mom enjoyed visiting Kanhyon and Sununsan! Since y'all spend a decent bit of time and energy in Korea climbing, I'd think your parents might want to see some of the places (you could get a min-bak away from the rif-raf or make it a day trip).
