14er finisher - Chad Richardson (Maverick6981)

Post by RyGuy »

A hearty congratulations to Chad Richardson (Maverick6981) who finished the 14ers yesterday on Pikes Peak with a great crew! Chad loves Lord Of The Rings, so it was only appropriate that everyone dressed up as LOTR characters.

The whole crew:

Congrats Chad!
It's been great hitting peaks with you over the years.
And was awesome to be there for your finisher.
It was a great weekend all around.
Hope the champagne washes out of your luxurious long blonde hair.

And a shout out to Bradley, who also finished on Saturday on Pikes.

The caped dog got a ride to the summit along with the Champagne! He then proceeded to become the Mayor of Pikes.

Congratulations again Chad! Super fun day/weekend!

Believe it or not, that is actually a travel kazoo which, for much of the entire day, was used to re-create the Howard Shore soundtrack— to the detriment of all within earshot.

Any other climb and you might be spot on.
