If you were hipster, you would know thats actually a shemagh. I own one, pretty comfy actually. But its yellow and black, not some crazy hipster purple crap.

Awesome! I laughed so hard I spilled my dinner and over-hopped IPA you've never heard of all over the place.
Sorry, Ben, that is the post of the thread.

You sir, are officially more hipster than me. And I thank you for pointing that out. See that, Derek?

Oh, nice guns there, Matt.

Hey, shush. I have to correct something in this post - the thirteeners are not more enjoyable, they are boring, crowded, isolated, hard to get to, dangerous, no fun, and should be avoided at all costs.

I do see that. But it's too late, Pabst boy. Is it hard riding a fixy all the way from KS?

In this particular case it is so true. I much rather be on the summit of Bierstadt with 50+ other people (and in fact plan to do just that in a couple of weeks) than find myself on Argentine peak one more time. You can have it, I could see why so many people would rather do Bierstadt.

You seem to be great at getting species in their natural habitat!

Well played sir, well played.

This post made me think of an episode of the Dirtbag Diaries, and while it doesn't really apply to this thread, I know quite a few of you will thoroughly enjoy it.

For some reason I have a feeling we'll be seeing some "Hipster" themed trip reports in the near future.
