Thanks for the tremendous response from everyone who wants to attend and help organize the hikes.
It may be easier to keep track if everyone starts signing up on the climbing calendar:http://www.14ers.com/calendar/index.php ... &year=2007
I was thinking along the lines of this plan:
We'll watch the snow levels and weather for the June climb and plan that as a more informal gathering for those who wish to attend.
We will have the plaque/memorial and plan for where to place it by the August 15th date. I was thinking we could have a more formal memorial service at the TH that morning and then hike up. That way if there are friends / family members who wish to attend but aren't capable of the summit climb, then they would be able to be a part of it too.
What does everyone think?
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
