    I stepped off the summit, and turned to walk to the restaurant, when a guy with two little kids asked me, "Are you going to 'the summit' now?"

    FYI, I'm going to be tramming it up with my family on Sunday. Works out better that day logistics-wise with the car. Wish we could hike down with everyone but Alex is still a bit congested and I don't think she's ready to get back out there yet.

    We look forward to seeing everyone at the top!

    I'll be trammin' my way to the top. Entertained the idea of trying to walk down, but got a big gust in my face in my driveway and was coughing for 10 minutes, so I'll be trammin' on down too.

    Did it miss it somewhere, what is the expected summit time?

    It looks more and more like there's going to be a lot up with the snow. Snow or no snow, have a happy birthday.

    Dave ,
    You mentioned this trip to me almost a year ago, And I really want to make it.
    However, as you know, I push snow for a living.
    It does'nt look good for me at this point.
    If the weather shifts in the next 24 hrs. I will be there.
    If not, Have an excellent B-day and I will hoist one in your general direction!

    FWIW, the weather looks to have shifted a bit -- now the snow's supposed to develop in the afternoon.

    Will probably be a nice and calm hike up with perhaps some flakes coming down on the descent.

    I am sorry to have to do this, but given the severity of the impending storm, we're going to have to cancel as well. It looks like it's going to be dangerous driving this afternoon and tonight.

    I wish you well, Dave -- congrats!!!

    Dave, wishing you the very best. Would have love to be with you and all at the top. However, my daughter needed my assistance today.

    Happy B-day
