Definately can't wait ! my old Swanage guide has got damp too many times and is just a thick mess off loose pages now - it'll never go back in the plastic cover with its Portland counterpart (used only once)
Its been late 2012 since Nov 2011 on the CC site on wayback and always more than a year before then. So I guess your "6 months" was about as accurate as their "at least a year"? Having been involved in volunteer produced guidebooks I know its notoriously hard to predict the end of such a project.
In reply to Ciderslider: And it is afterall the esteemed "El Presidente" of the BMC who is chief author for the CC guide. Perhaps his presidential duties have slowed progress? I do believe it is going to happen though, I've bumped into a guy working on maps for the new guide whilst at Winspit a couple of years back, so it's not just a myth!
In reply to jimtitt: If Scott were to achieve nothing more in his BMC presidency than to expose the dismal combination of illiteracy, incompetence, apathy and outright dishonesty that comprises the CC guidebook committee then he would have justified his appointment.

> equally my old guide can't hold together much longer (and I refuse to revert to some old photocopies of the previous guide I was using waiting for that one to come out )
oh sorry, i was referring to the Somerset guide. I don't think the Swanage guide is that far off now though
In reply to John2: It has been pointed out to me that my comments in my previous post look as though they are to be applied to all of the CC publications committee and its products. That is of course not the case and I therefore retract them fully. They were based on a single set of very bad experiences working on a particular guidebook.
