Won't be much of a site once he removes the stolen material. Not that it is now. Trying to surf that site reveals what a great job Bill does here.

I would not click their links and thereby boost their traffic and or ad revenue (or such), rather only view the cached copy if available.
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

There are some posts by a cheeseburglar over there, but he sounds like a respectable married guy who posts intelligent advice.
That has to be some kind of infringement on my rights.

I'm in. I vote we dress in camo.
You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. - Rene Daumal

looks like its quoted and sourced on the page so I don't know if he is doing anything illegal but I'm not a patent attorney. My dad however is so I'll run this by him in the morning and see what he thinks. I did just find some stuff on the page that was not quoted and looked to be "original" but then it also leaves a source for the info and that redirects you to our 14ers.com forum.

I know that's good and all, but I'm a little disappointed. I kinda wanted to see what the sledgehammer consisted of.

I just looked (8:13pm, Sunday) - there is now no section called "Hiking Blog" where all the posts were placed.
