who needs a mountain when you've already got a brook named after you?

Being Italian, I have a few connections that could "take care" of the problem, if necessary.
Greasy goomba crap was big in the 70s with the Godfather, and later with the Sopranos. Both are long gone except in reruns. Don't you have more modern thugs to rely upon, dentist? There are plenty of them around these days.

I would guess you'd be well connected with some of those.

I find the title of this thread offensive.

Gandalf69 should be banned from the site.

Not only has he disabused a tenet of western culture, but his username could be construed to be offensive to mutual oral satisfaction and to hobbits.

Hobbits, like other minorities, must not be subject to scrutiny or ridicule, and mutual oral satisfaction, well, it speaks for itself. (when applied properly)

Gandalf is a wizard, fool. Nuthin to do with halfling sexual practice.

Ask Radagast if HE takes issue with this nonsense.

Needs more write-in options.
Mount Middlebrook Peak Mountain
Mt Middlebrook McMountain Face

Also, we should stop naming things in order to save them for future generations. If the prior generations hadn't named the 14ers then we could choose some names for ourselves. So we shouldn't name any 13ers and instead save them for later generations. :wft:

First, you'll need a Middlebrook Lake.

Then you can name its inlet stream Middlebrook Lake Creek.

Then one of the branches of that creek will be West Middlebrook Lake Creek.

Then the massif at its headwaters will be West Middlebrook Lake Creek Mountain.

Then, and only then, in true peakbagger fashion, the highest summit can be named East West Middle Brook Lake Creek Mountain.

I think the best way to honor bill is to follow LNT and donating and/or volunteering to the 14ers initiative.
