Congratulations Kevin! It's a big deal to climb the Hundred Highest. Now you can work on that 13er list.

Awesome job, Kevin !!!

Kevin: It took me this long to get to this forum thread, as we were down in the same area over the weekend. All the same, hearty congrats!
I have been to the mountaintop, and I have seen the force
and the power that animates the universe. That may not
match up with your anthropomorphic or teleological idea of
what "god" is, but it's good enough for me.

Someone who does 50 pushups at 14k is far from finished. Good luck on the next 100+ 13ers. It was a pleasure joining you for a few mountains this year. Congratulations on reaching the milestone! =D>


ps. After watching Kevin's pushups here, and then Mike and the Papersons go on to climb 3 more peaks on the some day of their final cent a few weeks ago, I am making a simple request for when I reach the summit of my final cent: please, someone, just hand me a beer and a soft mat to sit on. Thanks. :-D

Now who wouldn't love a good soak after their 100th cent? Well earned and deserved. And so much better than a sit pad. Are you offering to help? Will be fun...just watch out for the nefarious bears!
