Congratulations!! That's a hefty accomplishment!
"The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need – if only we had the eyes to see." -Ed Abbey

"I get scared sometimes—lots of times—but it's not bad. You know? I feel close to myself. When I'm out there at night, I feel close to my own body, I can feel my blood moving, my skin and my fingernails, everything, it's like I'm full of electricity and I'm glowing in the dark—I'm on fire almost—I'm burning away into nothing—but it doesn't matter because I know exactly who I am." from The Things They Carried

Congrats!!! =D> It was nice running in to you on Huron on Saturday, what an awesome day! I was jealous of your fat bike when I was trying to haul my skis through the slush and mud on that never ending road though.

Congrats Greg! I remember hiking with you on Sarah's Elbert finisher a few years ago, glad to see you now join that club!

Way to go, Greg! Sincere Congratulations on reaching all the Colorado 14er summits! Very nicely done.

'Winter' fishing is definitely quite an incredible, remarkable mountaineering accomplishment.

Also - Great display of perseverance! Positive kudos regarding achieving this colossal feat.

Thank you for being a consisistent, inspiring presence in our community. Keep climbing safe and strong.

13ers are extremely cool peaks too!

Congrats Greg! I vaguely remember being near a winter summit or two with you, many years ago! Mostly because your summit nap was long over by the time I arrived.

Enjoy the accomplishment!
