Good point. Afzal still has to travel to visit some of these valleys (although lives so close to them). :wink: As for us, we have to travel to get to the mountains. For myself they are an hour away. A few hours away if I want to get to my "World Class Mountains". 8)

Woah, Matt, thanks a million. You've done some fine work lately yourself! I am set to see Chicago soon and will pass on your kind words. Kiefer, on the other hand, well... He can never come out to play!

Josh Lewis wrote:With all the recent drama going on SP, I figured I would bring some cheer to the site. This thread is dedicated to those who put lots of effort into their pages. The few who go out and take pictures of places rarely seen by the human eye. The ones that bring SP in a good direction whether it's an admin or someone of positive influence. The Pioneers who make first ascents and bring out the beta on the tables of SP. Or those who write about what they enjoy and encourage others to explore the high lands of the world.

This member has done a smashing job. Feel free to nominate more members. :D


Do you seriously think I am "smashing" contributor?

Am I missing a joke somewhere here? I see you contributing much more to the site.

Why the hell do you feel the need to do that? You know what else, you're
no different than all the other Washington climbers who think they are
badass just because they climb in Washington. Why do you people do this? :wink:

Well thank you very much for mentioning my name :^)
I certainly put up a lot of work on these 4 years of membership. I Spent the last 4 months updating all my images and mountain pages...
In fact, in the last 6 days or so, I did 3 new brazilian mountain pages :

http://www.summitpost.org/alto-dos-ivos-peak/817836
http://www.summitpost.org/point-2667/818628
http://www.summitpost.org/melano-peak/818847 (done today, waited a long time to be able to hike this mountain and to do its page here)

Cheers folks!

And so the work continues...

My last page for a while, one of the most traditional traverse routes of my country, Sierra Fina Traverse:
http://www.summitpost.org/sierra-fina-traverse/819098

Hope you guys like it. The place is gorgeous at every minute, the altitude is one of the highest of Brazil, and it's not a simple "weekend out", that's grown up deal!
:)

Enjoy
