    That's a co-incidence....

    Neil is writing a book called "Women of Attitude"

    He's known a few in his life. Funny thing is they got their attitudes AFTER meeting him!!

          The title is "Women With Altitude," edited by Carol White, written about 33 Women who have climbed the Winter 46, during the Canister Era.

          I have read almost the whole book already and it is one Awesome Read! The autobiograpies and stories of the women are amazing.

          It is easier to become a Forty Sixer than to be one. The art of the being is to keep one's sense of wonder after the excitement of the game is over. ...”There are few experiences in life that do not need to be expressed in words. Becoming a Forty-Sixer is one... How to be one is up to the individual.”

                    I was in the book store over the weekend and noticed the book "Women with Altitude". I purchased it for my wife for christmas, I read chapter 15 and would like to say that the chapter was very empowering. The book is very inspiring, thanks for sharing your story.

                      I picked the book up the other night. It's a great read. I hope I can make it up for the autograph session. It would be neat top get some signatures with each chapter.

                        I also bought it as a gift, then started reading it. It's good right from the intro.

                          I'm gonna get a copy too. I hope it get's me in touch with my feminine side.

                          Also, I plan to read the stories aloud to Neil at the winter gathering, making sure to overtly gush and marvel at these fine lady's accomplishments, while simultaneously chiding him for his lack thereof.

                          If I had any pride, I might even feel a little touch underachieving myself. Naaaaaah.......... It's better to be an underachieving loser, that way, I'll never be disappointed in myself .

                          In all seriousness, Congrats Sky, your story is well worthy publishing.

                            I can see it now. I'm sitting in a rocker, a blank stare in my eye and a trembling chin. A comforter on my lap keeps me warm in the overheated room while Tim reads aloud how Skyclimber searched for the cannister on Seward. Suddnely I break wind and crack a demented smile. Then I walk out the door and lay down in the Ausable River for one minute before heading up Sentinel dressed in a business suit.

                              Ya then just wait until Part 2 of Skyclimber searching for the Seward canister, in Judy King's chapter! Bring on the tissues.

                              In all seriousness though, "if you didn't find and sign the canister, you didn't always, get to count, the climb."
