Bill won't like this idea. He has to be dead first.
^This

And the mountain will then be constantly misspelled as:

Middlefield
Middleton
Middlestream
Middlebrooke

And in 100 years someone will state that I destroyed all of CO, and the peak will be renamed again.

Subsummits can be "Little Middlefinger" and next false summit would of course be "Big Middlefinger" and finally just Middlefinger.
Could throw in the the DYBM too on the summit usgs cap.

If we move forward with this at some point in time...the peak needs to have some damn good ski lines.

That is all.

In that case, Austrians or Germans should do us a solid and find a peak to name Mittelbachspitze.

Could we name a pothole or future roundabout in Breckenridge after him instead?

And what should we name after Hoffmeyer? After all, he was the first one to have an idea for a website for 14ers, i.e., FourteenerWorld. See how easy it is to forget about webmasters... So maybe a pothole or roundabout is about right. :lol:

Oof. I think I was just called a “webmaster.” That’s low

Off topic perhaps, but there is an actual place in a very remote place in Arizona called Flipoff Point (seriously). I never could figure out why the name of the point was Flipoff Point. Does anyone here know or can perhaps figure it out? It's a complete mystery.

Being Italian, I have a few connections that could "take care" of the problem, if necessary.
Once taken care of, I'm all about "Mt. Middlebrook Peak" in honor of his t-shirt prototype.
