    Way to go Peter and Ed! Made it down was mandatory and you both did it. Time to hit the showers and enjoy some R. & R. and suck in some of that nice thick air.

    Congratulations on another successful summit. It is great to be able to follow the teams throughout the entire journey. Now we hope that Team Hahn summits and gets down safely. Then all go and have a pizza at Fire and Ice. As others have said, you guys are inspiration to all of the rest of us.

    Great acheivment Peter, Ed, Jake and the rest of the team. Its been an absolute thrill to follow this expedition. Everyone made it down which is just fantastic. Come and vist the Eddie Bauer store in Red Deer, Alberta, so I can shake your hands. Great to see Dave Hahn and his team spike the top as well, he really put in a super hard and fast climb. Mr.Hahn is a real super hero in my books.

    Best of luck in your journeys home.

    Fantastic Pete, great to see you following in the traditions of your dad and uncle. What a marvelous achievement for a Lakewood boy. I remember shopping at the family store Whittakers Chalet on 6th Ave as a boy. You make us proud.

    Great job guys, in my previous addition, I should have put that Whittakers was at the old Villa Plaza, sorry for the slipup Pete.
