because i am curious and really kind of in awe i wanted to ask you a few questions....your time for the climb last year was/is incredible to me....we made it to the summit in 3 1/2 hours and i dont think i could have shortened that time if i had to....i break frequently and take in the views and surroundings and would have probably taken more time if i was alone last year....how many times have you climbed mt washington?....is it your goal to improve your time a bit eash year?....does your wife ever hike with you or does she meet you at the top each time?....i cant imagine how fast you must have been going....
