Any word on how John's doing after his BIG adventure? Hope he's doing well and recovering nicely. We're still in awe over what he did and went through! :faint:

John, I just want you to know that your family in Missouri is very proud of you for what you've done. And I hope that you are not seriously injured. We are getting together with your mom & dad tomorrow for his birthday. Wish you, Lori & the girls could be there. You and your endeavor will probably be the main topic of conversation. =D> Uncle Terry

Thanks Andy, I enjoyed reading that. Thanks to Bill, as well, for providing us with updates on Homie's blog.

I hope Homie is recovering well and getting some much needed R&R with his wife and daughters.

I like that he kept SPOT going for some of his drive back home. I notice that a handful of his check-ins were where I believe Bongo Billy's sits in Buena Vista. :-P

Hi all, I was on Cave Dog's team for most of his 14ers effort and for some of his other challenges. I just found out about this, and I wanted to add in my congratulations to Homie on his insanely impressive run.

This brought back some really great memories for me, so thank you for that, and thanks for being an inspiration!

congrats homie!!!! even though you didnt realize your goal, i would say this has been a huge success, both for you and the community. the number of people who have been motivated to run or hike or climb (myself included) by your exploits is probably huge. You should take pride in how many people you have inspired to strive for greatness.

congrats man, you definitely have my respect!! =D> =D> =D>

John & Eric -

Congratulations to each of you on your respective fantastic achievements!

As Gene913 & others have said, your efforts are (waaay) beyond impressive. Following your pursuits on 14ers.com the last two weeks has been totally compelling, utterly inspiring, and jaw dropping testament to what motivated, disciplined, dedicated, and iron-willed human beings are capable of achieving.

Thank you for allowing others like me to in some very small measure share your endeavors.

And best of luck in whatever your choices might be further challenges.

Just to show that Homie is not strictly a "landlubber", I thought I'd share this photo of John & Lori when they paddled Brown's Canyon with us a few years ago.

This thread is soooo long! I havent been able to keep up with it all!

Congrats to you on an amazing run! I think back to some of the longer days or weekends Ive had on 14ers and think about how tired or worn out I was and then try to imagine doing 41 14ers in a week - inconceivable!

Very impressive! Congrats... =D>
