I may have met Brad last fall. Whoever it was (I forgot his name, but he kind of looked like Brad) was helping his girlfriend's daughter do Kelso Ridge. Being a beginner myself with poor route-finding skills, I was happy they let me tag along. He was a great instructor.

And of course, everyone in CFI deserves an award. Congrats Brad!

Very tall, lanky, quiet and wise? Sometimes accompanied by his petite and hilarious ninja wife, Melissa? Talks about his very talented teenagers?
"The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need – if only we had the eyes to see." -Ed Abbey

"I get scared sometimes—lots of times—but it's not bad. You know? I feel close to myself. When I'm out there at night, I feel close to my own body, I can feel my blood moving, my skin and my fingernails, everything, it's like I'm full of electricity and I'm glowing in the dark—I'm on fire almost—I'm burning away into nothing—but it doesn't matter because I know exactly who I am." from The Things They Carried

Perfect description, but you forgot the beard! :lol:

(While the description does sound like "my" Brad in many ways (I mean our cat is named Kelso), we're thinking it was another Brad who many of us know and who actually does have a girlfriend :) )

Congrats to Brad. Please tell me your cat is named after the character in That 70’s Show and that he acts like Kelso.

You’re too kind Jay. I was glad to see this drifting down on the page - so many said nice things already recently here and in the 500th shout-out. I’ll just say thanks all for the kind words and hope this drifts back down again now. 🙂
