Perhaps I'm out of the loop: but what's with Jeff Lowe being in the electric wheel chair?

I'm sure that would have been a heckuva great campfire, with stories of those guys!!! For Sure!!!

Even so, Jeff probably has a more cheerful disposition than a majority of the healthy population. He is truly an inspiration. JML

Donini's years are compressed because of all the time he spent in Alaska and Patagonia. But yeah, 300 is about right.

Seriously. Most of those guys have at least 40 years climbing. Some probably have more than that. So 300 isn't too far off the mark? That is a LOT of stories....

Jeff has another disease that looks like MS on the surface, but is different. He mentioned it on Supertopo a while back. In any case, it's a nice photo. Good to see some faces in there I have only read about or heard a friend was climbing with.

Thanks for posting that, Jody.

I've told it here:

Busting his balls was kinda fun considering who it was and how he'd introduced himself to me.
