Doug Scott at Neptune Mountaineering

Postby kaiman » Fri Sep 28, 2012 9:03 pm

For those of you who are hesitant or unavailable to see Ed Vestiurs speak, here is another opportunity to see an incredible high altitude mountaineer. I am actually considering driving from Moab to attend, but we'll see.

Info from Neptune's website below. It looks like it should be good! Maybe I'll see some of you there.

Dang, with I could go. I've always wanted to meet Doug Scott.
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

WOW. Unreal. One of the few mountaineers I would pay to hear speak. And I would listen as long as he wanted to talk. Thanks for this...can't wait!

Well, I wonder where that driver's bound
Is there someone, somewhere, someway out there that I've not found"

Is there a limit of people, and do we know how many spots are left?

This is tomorrow. Some friends and I are going. Likely meeting at the Southern Sun at 6pm beforehand.

I fly a starship across the universe divide....and when I reach the other side...I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can. Perhaps I may become a Mountain Man again.

For those that may be traveling to this from Denver tomorrow remember that I25 will be closed in both directions between Santa Fe and Hampden from approximately 5pm - 10pm for the presidential debate at DU.

Doug Scott's preso was under-stated cool and very fun to attend. The introduction was made by "Tom". A google image search confirmed that he was Tom Hornbein! =D>

It was def an awesome night to be a mountaineer. Can't wait for the other speakers coming into town over the coming weeks.
