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.
Rise and grind. Every day.

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.

Sarcasm or not, it's not even funny to post something like this. Not at this time. Reported.

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 !!!
