He's 0 for 1 around me. Schnaps???? I'll condone such a thing if its peppermint and used in hot chocolate, but otherwise I have another grievance to share with the OP.

Dude-this is about Aaron's faults, not your admiration.

For the record, I've seen his failings and some strong, spirited effort with Aaron's hungover hiking. In the spirit of the thread, I will only comment that Floyd has every reason to cry foul.

I just wish the guy would take a bath and get a shave...

You all make good points and they will be taken into consideration. Except the shaving. Also maybe some of the others as well.

And for the record Fortress and Courthouse were my first hangover induced failures in quite some time, but that said I should have manned up and will try better next time.

My grievance with you is that you are almost 30 years younger than me. Of course, I don't suppose there's much you could, or would want, to do about that.

Really? That's it?

And I thought this thread had so much potential...

You're right.

So here are a few more:

1. Trash, signs, etc. left on a summit.
2. The use of the word "epic".
3. Unburied poop anywhere.
4. Having no avatar on this website.
5. Cairns placed in obvious places.
6. Cairns placed in incorrect places.
7. Any connection between hot tubs and 14ers.

There. I feel better now, thanks.
