Sigh...

John's project was indeed interesting. =D>

Your projects however are lame and boring. You claim to be such an experienced mountaineer but all you can come up with is this crap? Sleeping on more peaks? :lol:

Please do us all a favor and stop writing these uneventful (and sometimes glamorized) stories...

Gotta agree here... pretty much sums it up for me.

Don't be discouraged, Dr Jon. I'm really looking forward to reading all of your published text messages in "Summits II: The Sequel".

Whatever you do, don't publish any more pictures of unconscious, bloody climbers (while they are still in the hospital with unknown prognosis, without their consent, and on a public forum) as a publicity stunt like you did on Snowmass last year. You are an egomaniac and your actions on Snowmass were appalling. I'm not saying this about the actual assistance provided to the climber, but rather the photos and posts.

I would never give you one cent of my money, and I encourage others to do the same.

Hahahahaha!!!!

Who buys this crap??? Seriously! Who is going to come up with a "Pooing on the Summits" series?? Or a "Kegstand on the Summits" book! It'd be more interesting than this garbage.

Sleeping on the Summits 2, Electric Snowmass Boogaloo.

EDIT: I wish I could climb like Turbo.

I'll be damned if I feel like I will ever know anything, but if we don't keep moving on that last hill, we'll never know what's on the other side.

I, for one, am grateful that someone is finally taking the time to share their nocturnal experiences with us unoriginal daytime folk. Little is as interesting as reading about people sleeping a bunch of places I've already been. I just hope "Dr." Jon is sponsored by Sealy or some other mattress company, as I can't think of any other reasonable justification for writing these books.

The worst part about all this is someone who's egotistical enough to insist on the repeated use of the title "Dr." but "humble" enough to stick to their first name.

Peace out,

Medic Tyler

If we pee on the highest summit of each state, by canine laws can we claim the entire US as our personal territory? At least until someone pees on top of ours...

That question aside, IMHO I thought that the first book was actually pretty good. This is definitely a rough crowd to please.

I think someone should be the first person to tube all of the 14ers during the calender winter :-)

Well said. It's great what you did for Jeff. It really is! He is a great guy. Whether you meant it or not, it came off egotistical in an otherwise very serious situation. The time to sell your book is not in those type of situations. Whether you want to sleep on the summits or walk backwards to every summit, so be it. I'm not the one to judge. At least your going outside. But at least be humble.

Reminds me of the story of Kennedy and Dawson on a winter summit bivy on Capitol Peak after climbing the NF. Or others catching sleep on the summit of Longs Peak after doing the Diamond in the winter.

It's usually the quiet ones you meet that tell you a tail of them and some close friends going to climb Masherbrum, or the NF of the Eiger. But don't think that since you did Everest and slept on the summit on the 14'ers that your better then everyone else. That would be the worst way to promote the book. I don't know your motives but by your posts, it can get a big overwhelming for the reader. Once again be humble, go light, and push yourself.

I hate to bash on someone, but sometimes it's needs to be said before the ego catches up to you. Mountains aren't a good place to have it, as I'm sure you know.
