CONGRATS!!!

Postby womanhiker » Wed Jul 21, 2010 10:15 pm

I know most of you don't know me or my boyfriend/hiking partner. However, I wanted to give a shout out to my boyfriend, Scott (sdizzle) for summiting his final 14er today.....Ellingwood Pt. The information and people on this website helped to make this possible!!

I am so very happy, proud, and honored to have stood on 40 of those summits with him! Congrats Scott!!! :D

Congrats Scott! Any chance you can post a pic of the BA tattoo that got you up Ellingwood?

Scott is a great guy despite his unfortunate paprika-like aroma. If you don't mind climbing with a guy who wears a scarf (sometimes only a scarf) 24/7, Scott is your man.

In all seriousness, good job buddy. Hope to see you for my finisher.

WOW! What an awesome possom victory. I don't know you Scott, but you're definitely a motivate and determined individual. I just summitted my first 14er last week and couldn't imagine doing all of them! Way to go, 5 gold stars for you!!!

It's been a fun and exciting journey and nice to move beyond some of the self-doubt on a number of mountains along the way. Like others I'm sure, I did not plan to hike all of the 14ers until I had hiked many of them and found myself still enjoying the harder peaks. It helped to work progressively from easier to more difficult mountains, though in hindsight I would have saved a short, easier one for last, especially since we don't have 4WD. It's also been fun hiking with womanhiker, doggler, and others as well. Looking forward to hiking / running some of them again.
