Thank you.


I see what you're doing here. You knew that it wasn't a word, which is why you used it. Tricky.

Welcome to the list, MinerClimber. I wouldn't confuse 14er(.com) members nor 14er (hikers) with 14er (peaks). Hmm, mountain bike, mountain biker, 14er, 14erer? And if you climb on people who climb, 14ererer? :wink:
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

Yes! 14erer.
I am unable to walk away from the mountain without climbing it. An unclimbed mountain tugs at my consciousness with the eternal weight of time itself. Until I've pressed my face into it's alpine winds, hugged it's ancient granite walls, and put it's weathered summit beneath my heal I'm unable to resist it's attraction.Knowing nature gives the mountain more time than she gives us adds urgency to the obsession. As has been said before; the mountain doesn't care.

It can wait forever. I cannot.
