My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
Wait, I've never met Talus!
Yeah I have, over the 3+ yrs I've been enjoying this site!
I've never read a 33 page thread before tonite, and it wasn't until about page 29 when I realized that I asked a ? of the Forum last summer, and within minutes had a detailed answer from TM, complete with recommendations and links on whereto find them!
Never thought to send my thanks, but Talus, I think you now know that I do thank you!
If I ever get in trouble on a 14er,(quite poss with my heart condition) I hope Caroline is with me; what a STAR!
If I was younger and in better shape, I'd join SAR like CONative, cause you guys are my heroes!
Condolences to all, love to all, and Bill, thanks for the great site!

“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

One thing's for sure: I now have an even greater respect for hard-packed snowfields...gravity can sure take you away out of control into the rocks.
My thoughts and prayers are with David's family and USAKeller and all who knew him.
'As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; 14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. 15 As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; 16 the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. 17 But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children.'

I think he is a true definition of a man. This is the highest compliment I can give another male. To have so many friends, to have so many fine qualities, to be loved by so many. To be strong and brave, to be witty, humble and funny. To be giving and caring. To be so missed.
From what I have read, he has set an example that all of us can aspire to. I hope I can learn from his deeds and his personality and become a better man.
When I think about USAKeller and what she did and is doing now, I feel strengthened by her resolve and woeful for her loss. I think she is a heroic, strong woman.
And when I think of the SAR people and their comittment, courage and unselfishness, I feel like a little girly girl.
To his friends and family, and USAKeller, I am very sorry David died so young.
I think, as an angel, he'll watch over his mountaineer friends and guide them to safety when they're in need.

I just got to CO and was reading the posts about TM's fall before I left to go climbing yesterday. I left thinking TM was going to be fine. Needless to say, I was completely shocked when I got back today and read what happened.
CONative, thank you for the report and for what you do. Every time I climb, I always feel safer knowing the SAR teams are out there.
I never met TM, but like many others, I was always amused by his posts. I was thinking about him in the pimp suit when I was climbing yesterday and I will always think about that when I climb this summer. I hope he's enjoying a 40 right now.
