It was fun to read the good reports from the gathering. I would have been there if I wasn't here (Frisco, CO). Living in the mountains is everything I hoped for. Hardest decisions each week: so what am I going to climb this Saturday? ... can I get an early enough start by sleeping in my own bed tonight? ...should I go ahead and buy that Down puffy jacket on consignment at Wilderness Sports? or how many softshell pants should I really own?

In seven weeks I've climbed 7 days, lost 25 pounds and in the best shape of my adult life, am fully acclimated (a luxury I never had living in KC), and am like a little kid waiting for ski season. I be happy to climb with any KC flatlander when you come out. Sorry if I'm bragging...but the mountains are good.

'Bout time to change the "Location:" in your profile then, right? Don't worry. We'll be sure to keep all the BBQ, steak, and college basketball fun here for when you visit. :wink:
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:
