Good luck! I hope all goes well and the weather cooperates for you.

Hoping for your success! Curious, you mentioned completing the 14ers one summer, yet your list leaves out Culebra. And that's a tough one to schedule during such an attempt. How do you plan on this, as well as Lindsey?

Good luck to you defygravity!

Very inspirational.

I think this is my favorite part of your posts: "... I took the passenger seat out of my vehicle just to make this clear!"... that's great. Hardcore. =D>

Yeah buddy! Go get ‘em. Are you the guy I met on the Columbia - Harvard ridge last year?

Sending positive vibes. I tried it somewhat on a whim and wasn’t prepared for stout monsoon weather. Hope all goes to plan for you.

Any update? I get an error when I look at the tracker. Oops, sorry, the link in the thread seems to be the issue.

Maybe this will work

Kind of a strange start...

Looks like 11:51pm 7/4

Eolus 3:56am 7/5
N Eolus between 4:26am and 4:36am 7/5
Sunlight 6:19am 7/5
Windom 7:12am 7/5

If there is someone with him, please suggest he tag each summit when he is there with the tracker. His track doesn't appear to cross N Eolus which, I suspect is due to the frequency of pings.

Is the train schedule the same this year? If so, the race is on to make the 10am departure from Needleton for Silverton.
