Yep - http://www.oneworldendeavors.com/2013/01/27/difficult-choice/

Still though, I can't imagine 19 days up there in the dead of winter. Solid effort.

Seriously, just surviving what he went through is impressive. I wonder if he'll give it another go next year.

This is fun, though. It's cool to see it go un-won, and the effort in trying is what makes it such a cool experience. Glad everyone got through it okay.
I'll be damned if I feel like I will ever know anything, but if we don't keep moving on that last hill, we'll never know what's on the other side.

Lonnie is still in a place that most of us wouldn't want to be. He is facing a 10,000 ft descent with deep snow,whiteouts,crevasse fields and ungodly cold.There is a chance that he could get pinned down for several days. Get down safely Lonnie and have yourself the best meal in town, You have earned it !!!
