I am looking forward to future adventures too. No more shoveling snow in order to ski lines, or feeling the need to ski stuff in the Drygres, or skinning up a drainage multiple times to get a line in condition - you can just go where the snow is.

Nice work nonetheless Carl - the Snowmass trip we did is still one of the most memorable slogs. Best Wendy's late night run ever.

Congrats to Carl and the team! That video is one of the most bada$$ things I've seen on this site.

:shock: =D> \:D/ :iluvbeer: :!:
As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

Psyched for you! Nice work, and congrats!
The Dalai Lama when asked what surprised him most about humanity:
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
