Kudos, Steve!

Well, then, Steve can just take it easy on himself for a while and work on skiing them all. :wink:

Steve, it has been an honor to climb with you for the past 23 years. I've had the great fortune of watching you become the legend you now are. The best part...you are there for everyone else. You want ALL of us to succeed in our goals. That is what makes you our mentor. Thanks for not only helping me on my goals; thanks for the laughs and making me a better human. Congratulations on becoming the only person to complete to two biggies in Colorado climbing-the 13ers AND the winter 14ers.

Hey, great group you had on Evans. Anyone that can smile in THAT wind is ok by me. And they all smiled!

Mark, did you spend your evening checking all of those boxes on your 13er list here? ;)
Hope you and Bill had a safe ride home last night, and hopefully you weren't too stiff (Steve, don't go there) at the end of the drive. I'll admit it, I'm a bit sore today.

Steve, please register Cooper on the site and update his peak list. thanks. ;)

Congrats Steve. That is awesome stuff. My feet get cold just thinking about it.
The Dalai Lama when asked what surprised him most about humanity:
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

Yes, Darin, I did catch up on my list and yes, one knee is sore (not stiff). It appeared this group was all in summer shape.

What would the Bishop MIege Stags and Rockhurst Hawks back home in Roeland Park, KS have to say about this feat?
Dunno for sure, but I will say this: Congrats to you, hometown hero. Well done. Now go have some KC BBQ.

Steve, I'll add mine to the growing list of congratulations. I cannot even fathom the accomplishment. I am glad to have hiked a summer one with you.
