I don't have access to Facebook. Where does 1,100 votes put CFI on the list?

BTW, CFI was doing an excellent job on the lower portion of the N. Maroon trail.

The leader board is updated nightly and this morning we were ranked 50th which puts us around $20,000.

I suspect we will have jumped a few spots by tomorrow morning.

I just mentioned this over on facebook, figured I should reiterate here. If you're just now voting try and earn a bonus vote for someone else by following their link. In other words, we shouldn't let bonus votes go to waste.

On a side note, I enjoy the fact that you can follow a link from someone else (earn them a bonus vote) and then in turn still post a link to earn yourself a bonus vote... Oddly reminiscent of a pyramid scheme (but not quite) for a bank.

The Facebook voting app has been very slow in the past hour. If you can't get your vote(s) through, please try later. Thanks

Here's the message I got...
Uh oh! Looks like you might be lost.
You just got a 500 error - the page you’re looking for doesn’t exist, or may have moved. But fear not; just click here to go back to the homepage.

Bill, I suspected it was a phishing e-mail from a fake Bill Middlebrook to get my account info; so you almost didn't get my two votes, next time you should include some "security phrase" that everybody knows you are the 14er Bill Middlebrook; something like "scree of coumbia" or "willows of the guanella pass", anyways, # 1229 and 1231 from me...

Maybe I should sign it "Damn you, BM"
or
"The Bill Middlebrook"

Oh, I know a couple of people who would love to see me use the latter!

Maybe THE Bill Middlebrook should stand in the middle of an open field while the entire 14ers.com universe individually revolves around him.

I voted for CFI and tried to spread it out on Facebook!

That would require me to be in an open field with other people. Scary. I prefer a camp fire with boozers
