Congratulations! I think I'm on the 8 year plan myself! Or the ten, or fifteen... but still, I love reading about all you cool finishers to keep me going! Whats next?

Alan-

Congratulations on completing your "journey", and allowing me to join in on some of the more "interesting" summits.!!! 8 years is nothing it took me 13 yrs. to complete the "journey". Also, I was quite proud of myself, I even managed to not over serve myself on your finisher.

Cheers!!!
