Tom and I at Our Lake, Montana

After I hauled him on my back all the way up, not even allowed an occasional break lest he get offended at standing still, the ungrateful little guy didn't even want to walk around. He's actually laughing here, though it may not look that way.

Photo by my wife, upon whom I soon dumped Tom so I could go climb the peak behind me.

Re: Future peakbagger?

Yeah, it's not easy carrying them up. The pack, with him included, was about as heavy as my pack when I do a 1- or 2-nighter, but the weight isn't distributed as well, and your shoulders and back take a beating!

A few days later, he (and I) endured 10 miles in the pack, by far more than my other two ever tolerated.

Re: Good Stuff

Thanks, Steve! It helps prove to the doubters that I am human underneath it all...

Re: By golly ...

I think I deserve a few points for the slight upward curl on the right lip.

Re: nice

Thank you very much! At the time of this picture, Tom had just turned 12 months by only three days.
