    Glad I'm not the only one...I've been stuck in the 30's for so long now, I don't know if I'll ever finish the 48. I need to stop doing the same mtn 10 times.

    Great read, congrats on finishing!

    Great, now completing the 48 is officially mainstream.



    Good job Wu!

    I actually made, just now, a "Grid" list on JMP but I haven't populated it because A) it seems really annoying to try and fill iin anything and B) I can't remember when I did what anyway. I'd basically either be lying if I filled in a blank so I might as well start fresh.

    Good news is I might get Tecumser for my October Grid thanks to Jason Faceybook.

    You have more than earned your place at the potluck. I'll unlock the door this time.

    Grats Wu! Don't know if I would say we are blood kin after seeing you in action on Owlie! Definitely was fun doing some time on the trail with you! Also sorry I missed meeting your dad by minutes on Greylock, I'm sure he would have liked to be up on top for your finish. Somehow I can't picture you doing anything quietly, with or without any fanfare!

    You jerk! You had a chance to tell Dave Bear and the whole world how well behaved and sober I was on Wildcat "D" and instead you threatened Jason! HE was there in spirit!

    I didn't know you were not a finisher... I did some of my very first NH48 with you in 2006, and I thought at that time that you were a VERY experimented hiker, and I trusted you.

    I was so wrong!
