I think my wife would be very grateful if you'd just go ahead and put this thing well out of reach for me, Andrew. Can't wait to see you out there. Go get it!

I enjoyed writing about you, John, but I suppose I'd be grateful too. Andrew, may you have great weather and a great record attempt. I'll be watching.

Although it may have tainted the spirit of your quest, it would have been interesting if you had revealed your plans a little sooner...including a hint that fresh snow trenches on your route would be welcome! I bet the 14ers.com Army would have turned a few additional approaches into super highways!

I also have the goal of climbing all the contiguous US 14ers, I've been working on it for 15 years...it well certainly take at least 20! To do it in 22 or so days would be an unbelievable accomplishment!!!!

Go get it Andrew!!!!!!!!!!

I think you picked the perfect time of year.
Snow should be consolidated enough to walk on and a boot glissade can get you down a slope quickly!
