I work in Golden and get off at 5, so I'll wander over to Woody's right after. Looking forward to it! Thanks for putting this together, Keegan.

Wait a minute, the Eiger is only 13,025 tall? [-( Disappointing.

I'll see you guys at 5:15.

Clint Eastwood's aura rounds it up to 14,000.

Thanks for pulling that together (and making a late-in-the-game beer run!), Keegan! Making that any sort of regular thing would be a good thing.

Now, to work some of those awesome Classic Clint one-liners into my repertoire!
