Hell no! I run a puppy mill and collect antique lawn tractors.
Are you seriously trying to have a rational conversation with another anonymous user or are you trying to "win" the internets Moapa?

Have to be honest that my own attention is drawn to bigger mountains and more and more I am considering going for them (not everest since it is financially a bitch ) but other ones where you have to put one foot in front of the other without climbing 5.14d pitches, no scottish grade 5 ice and no bivy's of 3 weeks without food before getting back barely alive...Sometimes it is fun to just test you in a physical way. How deep can i go how bad can i suffer... Everest and the other 7 summits are "pretty" easy on a technical level but they are still a physical challenge...It is pretty obvious that the OP looked for a hard physical challenge to do with his father

And I call bullshit that the 7 Summits are easy. Sorry, all the money, Sherpas, guides, fixed lines, non-technical terrain etc. wouldn't mean a thing at 29,035 feet. Just because something isn't WI6 or 5.13 doesn't mean it is easy, except by that very specific definition, technically easy. That's very different from just easy - it's easy to flame someone anonymously online because you are jealous of the way they chose to spend their money and the traveling they chose to do with their time.

For the record I couldn't give less of a shit about what he does in the mountains. Jealousy of some douche bag Texan with too much money and a huge ego who likes to boast about mediocre climbing accomplishments to strangers on the internet is not something that I'm feeling.
I simply thought it was hilarious that he was beating his chest while trying to rip people off.
Those of you defending him and congratulating him obviously have no idea how easy it is to buy your way to the top of the 7S.
