    Congratulations Dr. D!

    Very nice to meet you, although quickly, April '06 just north of Mt. Bond. I was with the group from PSU that day, I was on my way back from West Bond with my buddy.

    What an achievement! Geez, I gotta start keeping track of my Grid so in years to come I may be there.

    Thanks for posting photo link, John and June (it really is a pretty cool patch). I remember our meeting on our Bonds-Twins traverse a couple of years ago on the last day of April, TDawg; GHB, my hiking partner on that day, joined us on Moriah today. And, good finally meeting you Rocket21; my favorite Sox player was #9, so I am glad to have that number for the grid.

    Congratulations! It's an awesome accomplishment, and now you'll also forever be the last of the single-digit finishers.

    Huge congratulations on an extraordinary accomplishment!

    After completing a Grid, what does one do, a Cross-Hatch?

    Let me guess, when Dr. D was a youngster, he dreamed that one day he would be walking down the street and a father, walking with his son, would point to D and say, "Son, there goes the greatest gridder who ever lived."


    Some photos:


    Quite a lot of people on hanging out at the lower ledges near the Stony Brook junction!


    What celebration is complete without bubbles?
