Did Dr_Jon just troll us? :-k With the way his first post reads I get the impression he knew he would get some good responses. Don't feed the trolls.
EDIT: been thinking about this quote all day, not trying to offend Brian C, just give my thoughts.

Who buys this crap??? Seriously! Who is going to come up with a "Pooing on the Summits" series?? Or a "Kegstand on the Summits" book! It'd be more interesting than this garbage.


I like books about adventures on the 14ers. I would love to read a book about normal hikes up the 14ers, shoot I read Oman's book. I like the way certain people on this site write, and if/when they write a book I like to read it. Not defending Dr. Jon, but I do read that crap, and I like it. Give me a good narrative on mountains in Colorado and I will read it. Looking forward to susanjoypaul's book on waterfall hikes, but sure would love to read an unrestricted narrative by her about adventures in the Colorado mountains.

I love them redheads!
I'll be damned if I feel like I will ever know anything, but if we don't keep moving on that last hill, we'll never know what's on the other side.

Hmm, what about a "book" about Dancing on the Summits done as a compilation of various 14ers(ers) and or groups?
Granted some summit blocks could limit you to the The RobotImage, versus a Samba in the San Juans Image, raving on Red Cloud Image, glowsticks (at night) on GraysImage, or Harlem Shake on Harvard Image.
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

Would it not be more interesting if it was title "People I slept with on the Summits"??? Just a thought. Or is that more of a video thing????

Found this book in the "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought" section on Amazon. Has anybody read it? Is it worth the money, or should I just wait for the calendar to come out?

Wait for the calendar. It should have some pretty hot pictures.

Wasn't Bill looking for new items for the 14ers.com store? :mrgreen: My only beef with them is all the bolts of fabric I have to turn through to find the summit marker/benchmark.

Great job, guys. This thread is one of the few that improves with age.
