After the 14ers, learn some climbing skills. Start with the Alps and Caucuses, then on to the Andes, Pamirs, Kun Lun Shan and Himalaya. It's really fun.

No free gear or rubbing elbows with the big boys but since I climbed all the 14ers my wife thinks I'm hot. Now I can pick her up any time I want. :-"

I just finished the 14ers last week and I think I might buy a new 14ers book for myself and I noticed that I get drunk to quick. So I will be training for the great american beer fest.

Well, there is always climbing all the 14ers again walking backwards, skipping rope and waring a kilt. I don't think that has ever been done before...:-s

Come on up to the Canadian Rockies and bring your tourist dollars. Lots of scrambling up here. :)

Life before and after the 14ers = POWDER TURNS

hmmmm, other ideas?

a) Hang some orange material over the Arkansas so people can float and think they're on the river Styx.
b) Take over Irish dancing and camp out for the Celtic Women concert (9/12/10) @ Red Rocks
c) Try out for a cliff diver spot at Casa Bonita. My approach will be to "free climb" the restaurant's cliffs before diving.

You won't like powder skiing, take my word on it. Stay home, take up fantasy football... =D>

Well, you could do a bit of travelling and climb peaks that are even taller! Here's a good link for the list of the tallest mountains in the nation:
