Wow Brad, just wow!

Congrats on this huge milestone.

I first me Brad (and Melissa) at a fundraiser book signing at a CMC event many years ago that I went to with some of my other climbing friends. Brad has this way of making you feel you have been his long time friend from the instant you meet him. I don't think we have ever climbed together, but I have pinged him many times about gear questions, trailhead information, and if we should be concerned about certain texts from a mutual friend of ours ;) I am saving my signed copy of his book and plan on selling it to fund my retirement when he becomes world famous with his next book and movie deal.

After Melissa posted this accomplishment to the FB group I was mulling this number over. Sometimes we get so laser focused on the 14ers (it IS a 14er board I guess) we tend to gloss over the other 400ish summits you have on your 13er check list. Plus 47 of your 14ers were done in calendar winter! It's really mind boggling.

You are a machine!

Just a huge accomplishment.

Congrats again!
Alan

Brad - what an amazing accomplishment. That is a ton of 14ers. Takes persistence, patience, good fortune and wonderful partners to reach such a lofty goal. You have been a great ambassador to the mountaineering community. Keep up the good works.

A late but great congratulations, Brad. I think you have another 500 (make that 498) in you. How's your feet and knees holding up?
I like the example you set, I told you this in person too. Best of everything to you and Melissa.
