I wanna know when the next attempt at taking this thing to 14k feet is, certainly a substantial feat carrying up all the equipment...now, how to incorporate hot tubbing + ski descent is the real question ;)

Matt, it seems you're overly sensitive today. So, let me apologize in advance if I make you sick or disgust you. Good luck with finals and your summer of dirt-bagging.

I'm not crying about anything - reread objectively - this is the first time I've seen this thread, and it just comes off on a "haha you failed, you didn't get the hot tub to 14K, you don't know how to calculate things..." just petty small crap, and yeah - it was pretty negative - read it from MountainFever's position. Humilility

I don't think anyone here is gloating when someone fails. Personally, I'm just annoyed that we were bombarded with posts for a month about this silly party/project and then get a haughty "hey look at me" when the damn thing never got out of the parking lot.

As for all the naysayers throwing around things like science and logic (Bean, Crossfitter, Kansas - I'm looking at you), please be aware that Mandy don't give a F**K. I guess she's sort of like a Honey Badger that way. 2% of users posts were dedicated to not giving a F**K. - yes I calculated. I attempted to link to some examples below, but I failed... and I don't mind admitting it.

Ummm well done, I guess?

Maybe we should just combine this thread with http://www.14ers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=34702

Things to take away from this thread :

1 - Veronikas Mandy just doesn't give a f**k
2 - Veronikas Mandy would go stir crazy without social media and/or an arena to flaunt her free spirited, feel goodery, livin on the edge, relocation of LoDo to the mountains, adventures.
3 - Matt Lemke is sick and disgusted at people today
4 - Wildlobo has trouble deciphering between logical feedback and negativity.
5 - You need to watch 180 Degree South in order to 1 - learn how to really live and 2 - figure out how to design a make shift hot tub in a popular 14er Trailhead.
6 - Veronikas Mandy would make a fine CEO of a large corporation
7 - Veronikas Mandy doesn't always abide by the LNT policy
8 - Veronikas Mandy is an engineer
9 - I will no longer defend 14er World folks when they tee off on this site.
10 - The Avery Brewery was robbed of 96 beers.
11 - We've all got one life to live. Gaining attention on public forums is important, useless posts : good beta ratios are a thing of the past and Veronikas Mandy just doesn't give a f**k.

Gee-zus, really? :-k I am a bit taken a-back at the way some people here have "gone to the bad place" over the way someone else had decided to think outside the box for a memorable way to spend her birthday. Just because she decided to not worry about the math and science of it all and just build the pool and see how it goes, at what ever altitude fate would allow her? That sounds exactly like the way I would have approached it. Just make the sucker and whatever happens, happens. She had an awesome time and jumped on here to talk about it, just as several of us here had asked her to in the original post a while back. Not sure why she has been villified by so many. Seems like a lot of people have a need to get the last word in, and so the insults continues. Not even worth the Cartman smilie.

MountainFever, you are welcome in my hot-tub any time.... If I had one; or if I build one (someday!)---after I finish my other projects.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

Ahhh, the Last One to Respond Wins ....... Brings back such good memories. Except this time there is the evil twist of adding insult. ...... Kind of like Dr. Evil asking his love child Scottie to not just have a petting zoo, but an evil petting zoo. :twisted:

Was that Ellies Brown in a can I saw?

I thought they quit canning that stuff. Now I feel like I missed out! Looks like you guys had fun.

Let's all remember the old prospector saying:
"The early bird gets the worm, but the first human gets killed and the second learns from the first's mistakes and claims the mine."
Who's in for the second try?
Is it a race? Is there another team in the hunt to claim the first hot tub on top of 14er prize?
Stay tuned.
