One off the coolest things about our recently completed AMG was that when Mark, Ernie, Curtis and I finished the climb down from whatever highest point we got to on Mt. Rainier Ernie initiated a little ceremony where, after quite an accomplishment we all leaped in the air and hugged and said: "F**K AIDS!!!"

It was wonderfully fun, therapeutic and quite manly I must say! ;)

I can just imagine what you've described. The complete piercing of the air with your liberated shouts.
I hiked up one side of Mt. St. Helen's -- in the late-90's and post-volcanic destruction.

Isn't it incredible how beautiful and intensely quiet that whole region is?
I loved the serenity and hope to visit there again.

AWESOME!  A testament to all your wills!  I've always believed that half the battle was the mental aspect.

Wow what an amazing post.  Thank you Jody for sharing that special moment with all of us.  I was thinking we should have made Mt. Rainier a day trip for the entire group (sort of like the pyramids in Mexico), now you've convinced me we certainly should have.

By jumping in the air and yelling f**k aids, you four were "defying gravity"

Dang I wish we could have all been there.

Miss you all.
