Except for the one we have planned, right? That would be the TR to top all TRs.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Pretty foul and inconsiderate.

I'd like to add this one to my list also. Nasty. One time I was coming down the Mt. Antero road (near 11,500') and came up on a dude crapping in the middle of the 4WD road! Seriously, in the middle of the road. Paper galore :-&



:shock:

Just wow...

I'm not familiar with this apparently-newfangled way of using the word "really." Could someone describe it?

Another annoyance: using the word "loose" when the writer means "lose."

Oh. Is there some better way to express combined excitement and semi-disbelief?
