AHH!!! I am very, very sorry SusanJoyPaul, I was not drunk when I somehow 'put words in your mouth'.

I was up late doing some work and I wrote all that stuff without looking any of it over, I didn't even check the topic again until
someone sent me an angry PM telling me a was basically a douche. :(

I'm NOT a troll. Nor was I drunk, I've never quoted anyone on here before. I should have paid more attention to what I wrote (or how it came out) before hitting send. I just had too much going on last night, shouldn't be on 14ers.com posting stuff when I should be working.

Out of respect, I'm either deleting the posts or fixing them.

Again, I apologize I'd be pissed too..

No worries - I was only pissed for a minute, then I got over it and had a good laugh.

I'm a mountain climber... I only *really* get pissed off over the important stuff, like when someone tries to rename a 14er!

Carry on :D

You use your camping stove to boil water for your freeze-dried dinner IN your kitchen just to test the gear/food.
The mountain always wins, we do not always lose.

Interesting! I didn't know that was there. I'll keep an eye out for that next time I'm down that way.

All of your friends go: Whack! s**t!
And you go: s**t! Whack!
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

you try to get a 14ers.com username for your dog because you are having trouble keeping her peak list up to date.

...you wake up in the morning to find that a major storm has moved in overnight, dumping heaps of snow everywhere, shutting down roads, schools and businesses.

So you throw your purse and your laptop into your pack, strap on your snowshoes, and head off to work, where you're shocked to discover - you're the only one who showed up! Yup, this has happened to me three times. Should have done a peak instead!
