Great TR

Postby Bob Sihler » Thu Nov 05, 2009 4:32 pm

What this member did strikes me as the essence of mountaineering: http://www.summitpost.org/trip-report/570647/third-expedition-to-mount-sir-alexander-success-and-epic.html.

There are also a lot of great photographs that go with the climb; it would be nice to see something like them featured on the front page.

LOL! I also was wondering about that!

Also check out his profile. His 'a few words' section really hits home to me. The source is Chris himself.

Thanks for clarifying.

That said, being in a relationship shouldn't prevent one from going on trips, and all trips should have the goal of coming home safely whether you are in a relationship or not.

...just my unsolicited 2 cents worth... :wink:
