Happy Birthday to David!

Postby gsliva » Thu Jun 14, 2007 6:01 am

Happy Birthday David. I climbed Ford Peak yesterday, not a 14er but from 8000 feet to 10,500 and 8 miles round trip it was a good climb. I saw two Eagles, had a bull Elk scare the hell out of me and I sang Happy Birthday to the Talus Monkey. A nice trip.

Live for the Climb and the search for commitment.

Yes indeed,

Happy Birthday. Like many others, I never met TM, but I miss him.

I have been lurking on the site for over a year, but was never able to sign up due to lack of a consistent computer. I got a kick out of his trip reports and miss reading about his new adventures.

I will be drinking a Colt 45 for the first time ever later this afternoon as a tribute!!

Happy Birthday
So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

A birthday brew in honor of TalusMonkey! May the Colt 45 forever run freely![
