Travis, I cannot get over what a great role model you are to others your age. Role model to anyone, really. Kudos to you. I am so impressed.
"I scrambled to the top of the precipice where Nick was waiting. "That was fun," I said. "You bet it was," said Nick. "Let's climb higher." "No," I said. "I think we should be heading back now." "We have time," Nick insisted. I said we didn't, and Nick said we did. We argued back and forth like that for about 20 minutes, then finally decided to head back. I didn't say it was an interesting story.” - Jack Handy

I don't know how appropriate this is to mention at this time, but three weeks ago I met Kevin on Antero.

I noticed he mentions it in his trip report:

http://www.14ers.com/php14ers/tripreport.php?trip=7990

We had a nice chat and he was nice fellow. I asked if I could borrow his map since I didn't have one (long story) and we discussed the mountain and other things before departing.

Anyway, the reason I mention this is because even though I wasn't climbing with Kevin, I did take some photos of him descending the mountain (since I can't takle photos of myself glissading). I wonder if some of his friends/family might be interesting is seeing/having the photos. :?:
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

If I missed anyone, I apologize. Also other organizations were represented in the command post, but I cant say who.


FYI: The Western State Mountain Rescue Team is out of Gunnison, not Durango.


I always get them confused for some reason. Thanks for the spot check!

In regards to pictures.. I'm in the process of writing up my last trip report with him. This included Blanca, Ellingwood, and Little Bear. I have sent as many pictures as i have to the parents, if any one else has individual photos you can email them to me and i will pass them on to the family. My email is travis19877@gmail.com

You don't need to worry about donating to who, if the decision is made to donate to all that participated in the rescue, I will personally drive to wherever necessary.


you will be able to get hold of the SAR coordinator or team leader through the respective county's sheriff's offices. So you dont have to drive all over the state!

I would really like to view this video, but I can't get it to work. I even verified that my Adobe Flash and Quicktime files are all up to date. I can't even think about downloading the video through the download option, I am forced to use a satellite internet connection and that would far exceed my usage limits, and would take 2 days even if I could. I've tried this multiple times over the last couple days hoping it was a server problem, but it does not appear to be so.

Anyone have any ideas how I can get this to work or know of any other place where this video is available on low to medium resolution. I tried finding it on You Tube with no luck and could not view it through the Channel 7 internet article over this tragedy.

It works fine here...maybe restarting your computer, and clearing your cache may help and then copy and paste the link into your browser. See if that may work. And I am trying to get a copy of the video to upload in a different location that may help. In the meantime, here is the link again:

Also try using FireFox, Chrome, or Safari. Sometimes IE doesn't play nice with different websites. Who am I kidding, I am a programmer of applications that interface with web-browsers, IE is the WORST browser when it comes to this stuff. Give another one a try.

..also love the idea of setting up a scholarship in Kevin's name. What about a scholarship for teens who would not usually have the opportunity to get into the mtns and climb?

This is a great idea, I had tried to get something like this going last year through a leadership program. There are a lot of kids that have to work every summer and don't get the opportunity to enjoy Colorado and the mountains. Have an essay contest and whoever wants it, and funding permitting, this community could set up some days on the easier 14ers.

This as always is a sobering time but we can use the energy and support to make positive change. My thoughts and prayers are with Kevin's family and friends, and all of those who find joy at or above 14,000 feet. Travis you did the right thing, people will comment on other forums about the dangers associated with this passion of ours, don't listen to them. Finish that peak list, carry on the mission, and use this forum and community as a way to heal.

Thank you all for your insipration and one more prayer I would like to send out to all of the other members of this community who have been lost.

I have Firefox and IE and had tried them both before posting. Usually when one doesn't load or work, the other one does, but not this time.

Haven't heard the terrible news until this morning. I had the pleasure hiking Mt. Elbert with Kevin on Jan. 9th, and he shared his experience on the Bells last year. A very nice young man with bright future...

RIP, my friend.
