Have you read "Halfway to Heaven" yet ? It's a book very recently written by "Oman" from this website about his quest to climb all the 14ers. Great book ! I just finished reading it and will mail you my copy for you to keep and enjoy during your downtime in Afghanistan. Let me know and I'll get it mailed out by the weekend.

We ought to send you a copy. Let's coordinate so he doesn't get 200 copies!! :D

Hey, Joshua, what types of things do you like to snack on? 8)
As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

Consider it done, Joshua. I will mail the book out right away. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did ! Be safe over there.

As I've said before, you and your fellow soldiers are my heroes. I know I speak for many by saying we're proud to be Americans and owe our military men & women so much for their continued sacrifices. =D>

im gonna be honest anything sent to me my soldier will raid way before i get to it. I have a 9 guys under me and their biggest requests are things like jerky, twinkies and cake things like that, any ramen noodle add hot water and heat type food, gadorade powder ect. we are in a pretty remote area uhh no laundry, running water ect so any old magizines to read or snack food is great my soldiers would really appreiciate it

Joshua, be safe and thanks for serving. Freeze dried beer, now that would be nice. I've had lots of discussions while hiking that we could make millions if we could invent it.

Consider it done, Joshua. And, I hear ya on the "getting raided" comment. :D The last two boxes I sent to Iraq went to two guys who "willingly" shared the starburst, yellow fish crackers, etc. with everyone else :wink: . I'll get you a box sent out within the next few weeks. God Bless and Happy Trails! :D
