Thanks CO Native,
Those are all great points to keep in mind. I was going to let the topic fizzle out a bit until the media attention is away from the site.

I hope that you are able to join, oops, I'm mean accidentally be there at the same time some of us happen to be there!

I may PM you about some of these issues in the coming weeks if that's ok...

Thanks again,

I had already planned to climb Humbolt on August 15th? Guess I won't be the only one there.

My Father is an Engraver and I'm learning this skill from him, so if you need a plaque we would be happy to make one for David. Please let me know what you have in mind.
Since we can't put a plaque on top of a mountain, maybe we could carry a stone to the top with a little plaque with his name on it. We could all share carrying it to the top.

Hey walder,
Thanks! I think that would be so meaningful to have someone that we know do the engraving. The game plan right now is to come up with a few options of what we would like the plaque to say and take a vote on the forum.

We'll definitely be in touch. Thanks so much for your offer.

Word from the top is.....

No Plaques of any kind on National Forest Property.

You guys need to go silent and build the plaque or plaques. I think that a memorial plaque would be perfect and it doesn't have to installed on Humbolt. It can be David's favorite peak. No one has mentioned that peak so keep it secret. Friends and Family can be the only ones who know and it can be installed secretly so that Big Brother doesn't know or care. Enough said just get er done. This guys deserves some kind of memorial somewhere.

I think I may somehow find myself in South Colony Basin that weekend as well. I have tentative plans to be backpacking up Sand Creek that wee,k so that could work out nicely. I'll have to start looking at a map and figuring out how to get from point A to point B without hiking out.
