I don't have the stats from last year anymore. I'd like to think only web managers/programers could hack my website to find it. This year I may have to be even more clever... :twisted:

Might as well call this the "14ers.com G-Spot Hike" since most of the guys can't seem to find its location. :-"[/quote]


Tim, did you just take this "OFF ROUTE"? :lol:

Maybe a Gps and a SPOT would help with location :justkillme:

Per usual, after about a week, when we have a bunch of responses, I'll start to get a list of peaks to select from (pm suggestions if anyone has strong preferences). Then we can have our secret poll & pm's to keep the guys guessing. That seems to be half the fun :lol:


So, just was glancing at your personal website real quick. Did you go to SUNY Fredonia??

:wft: Well, girls, you know the old saying .... you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. :-# :wink:
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

Sorry Terry; no better at names than finding my way. Back to being a bystander! :oops:

Bummer, looks like I'll be missing it again this year. I'll be running The Bear in Utah that weekend. Have fun!
