 Reply to topic Reply with quote

Several of us are planning on a tribute scramble to honor Edd on Sunday. I  believe this will be helpful in the healing process and also to feel close to him after this tragedy.  During this time we will be placing the new Ed Miller traveling summit register.

I'm thinking that Ed deserves his own memorial register and thread to keep everyone in the know. Just like the NWHTSR except it would be named Ed Miller's Traveling Summit Register Memorial. I would like to include a picture of Ed, date of birth and passing date along with a brief history on a cover page. I would like to have it with me at the memorial services on Saturday and have the option to pass it around and let people give it a Breath and Heart Prayer. It would also like to have the register available for those that would like to write something in it. I believe this is the best way to honor Ed and keep his Spirit alive in our Hearts and minds. -naturealbeing


For the scramble we have chosen Big snow a place where everyone can be surrounded by beauty, tranquility, and peace while remembering and celebrating the life of a great person- Ed miller.
This will be a challenging scramble but nothing more than class 2 and take most of the day. Hopefully there will be adequate time for reflection while on the summit before heading down.

We will be meeting at  6am at : exit 34 by the gas stations, or you can meet us at the TH
It would be good to try and car pool with a high clearance vehicle.

If anyone is interested please post in this thread if you will be joining.  I really think Ed would be touched by this tribute.

So far the folks going are:

Action Betty
Pepper steak’ n Ale?
Dayhikemike?
Tom?

I do have a high clearance 4WD rig with brand new tires; I can haul packs in the bed to free up passenger room in another vehicle & take one passenger, maybe two (fake back seat in the truck).

Excellent choice!  I know Ed and Dayhike Mike climbed Big Snow together a couple years ago and had a great time.  Here is one of my favorite pictures from their trip.


Unfortunately I will not be able to join this time, but it will be an honor to retrieve and place the register on another peak at some future date, in memory of Ed.

Jeff,

I'd love to go, both in memory of Ed, and because of the great group of people involved, but unfortunately I'm not going to be able to come along.

Take care and enjoy the views of Gold and the MFK for me!

Tom and Mike- I am sorry you won't be there with us in body but will be in spirit. You guys have a safe trip and we will be thinking about you.

Thank you for your well wishs, it means a lot.  It will be very special knowing that we will be standing in the same area Ed once did while on the summit of Big snow.

That is such a good idea, leaving Ed Miller's memory atop the peaks of the northwest. I love it.  I'll always be wondering where he is and where he's going next.

I can't go this time around, but look forward to participating in the future.

Jeff...

Scratch that. I'm coming along. I'll be there. I'll be needing to ride in someone else's vehicle, but this is something I just can't miss.

Thanks for putting it together...

For those that haven't been up there, here are some fairly current pics of the section from upper Hardscrabble to the ridge. In my opnion, it's the only steep section and really not that bad.

I'll do a repeat for Ed. Count me in.  I have a high clearance rig and can take one person comfortably and two people can ride in the extended cab with a bit less comfort.
