The online mountain-resources sold me, but the epic threads keep me coming back! The Baron may be gone, and Cheeseburglar truant, but there's always another kook who wants to do it in the limelight!

14ers.com, you're always there for me whenever there's work to avoid!

Neither the Baron nor the Cheeseburglar were "kooks wanting to do it in the limelight". Both were/are funny and provocative at times, but not self-serving attention whores intent only on self-aggrandizement and money grubbing.

There is no connection between the three.

Forget the East Coast gapers, I think we need to start posting photos of really good skiers, like this one from Vail.

The guy is still trying to claim that he skied all of the CO 14ers. Since he blocked me, I had to use my secret Instagram account to get this juicy info :twisted: ...

Hasn't JK claimed that, outside of his record attempt, he has skied some of the 14ers that he missed or wasn't able to fully ski this season? Or am I mistaken?

If not, it's time to get Davenport and Mahon on the line again to play offense.

Yeah I saw that a couple weeks ago, and I chuckled a bit. I'll ski/climb with anyone at least once, but I may have burned that bridge :P
"And this might get me in trouble, but ski mountaineering. I don't know why. You all seem like great people, and I'm sure it's just envy on my part. But there's just something annoying about planning a climb, getting in shape, and all the buildup that goes into dragging myself up a couloir to finally reach the top, and then getting on here and seeing somebody basically say, "Now watch me ski this with nary a mention of how I even got up here." You all make me sick :wink:"
