G&T on 6/12

Post by trekwithbrandon »

Hey 14er fam!

I’m in Denver for a conference on June 10 and 11. I’m planning to stay an extra day and, weather permitting, bag Grays and Torreys on Wednesday, June 12.

I have a lot of trail and hiking experience in the southeast and Appalachia, but none in Denver. I’m looking to do a conditioning hike at altitude in a few weeks (and another in August) before heading to Tanzania in October for a trek up Kilimanjaro.

Anybody up for a couple of midweek summits? I can talk nerdy about bourbon, baseball, journalism, marketing, real estate development, and balancing a home with a teenage girl, teenage boy, and toddler boy. 🀣

I’m sure there will be plenty of other humans out there that day, just looking for someone to shoot the stuff with for a few hours.

Came here for gin and tonic content, disappointed it's gray and Torrey.

How about some G&T on G&T??

I’m a bourbon guy, but down for a toast at the top.

"...balancing a home with a teenage girl, teenage boy, and toddler boy." You're gonna need more than two peaks and some gin and tonic to cover this! Or bourbon.

I spend a lot of time at the gym or outside alone! :) love those kids, but need a mental reset every once in a while.

Bump on this one. Anyone want to hang out on Grays and Torreys on June 12?
