Congratulations to everyone. I was disappointed that Sara and her dad didn’t summit but she has a whole lifetime to try again. I’m glad you’re back to Base Camp.

Linden and Dave Congratulations to both of you and all your team! Linden I can’t wait to hear all the details when we climb Rainier again at the end of July. I’m just finishing the book Seven Summits and they are climbing Everest and I can’t believe you guys just did it! What an accomplishment. Congrats again.

Linden and Dave- Simply amazing. I am so proud to know you. Can’t wait to see you back in Seattle and to hear all about it over a beer. Savor this moment! Travel safe.

Congratulations, Linden.  Had you been an ancient Greek warrior, you’d be sitting on Mt. Olympus.  If a Crusader, you’d have found the Holy Grail.  If an astronaut, you’d be on the moon. Savor the moment! Enjoy the glory!  You earned it.

Thanks for all the dispatches. Another challenging year, another fantastic effort. Thirteen: that’s a pretty surreal number. Congrats to Mr Hahn and the entire RMI team, especially the Sherpas. Well played. Inspiring. Cheers.
