I work in Golden and get off at 5, so I'll wander over to Woody's right after. Looking forward to it! Thanks for putting this together, Keegan.

Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Wait a minute, the Eiger is only 13,025 tall? [-( Disappointing.

I'll see you guys at 5:15.

Thanks for pulling that together (and making a late-in-the-game beer run!), Keegan! Making that any sort of regular thing would be a good thing.

Now, to work some of those awesome Classic Clint one-liners into my repertoire!
