Here is what Joe says:  

I really enjoyed meeting you and climbing with you. Thanks for everything you did for me and the group in getting 10/11 to the top.  It was an incredible experience. Take care and let's keep in touch. You will always be welcomed at our home . -Joe

Here is what Damon has to say:

Dear SummitClimb,
Thanks for your concern. I was up there at Nido waiting for the wind to calm down for 2 days before the Summit attempt. I have to say that your organization is really..really well organized. As it seems like everyone was connected to know each member's status. Such small details make the trip worth while. By the way... Don't ride mules for 4.5 hours. You can't imagine what that will do to your body. I'm still in bed now...recovering. Happy New Year Damon
