I never met him personally, but loved reading his stories.

I met him on Uncompahgre and he convinced me I needed to leave my lurker status behind and join the forum.
I'm not an avid poster or trip report writer, but I do come out of the shadows once in a while to join a discussion where I feel I have something worth while to say.
Everytime I log onto 14ers I am reminded of the TalusMonkey.

Yes, he is remembered warmly and missed badly.

I never met the Talusmonkey. However, I read the book Halfway to Heaven by Mark Obmascik. He wrote a lot about him and his girl friend. He sounded like a free spirited person. I would have loved to have met him on a hike. His death was a tragedy. It sounded like he lived life to the fullest. There is no other way. I had just started hiking when he passed. =;
