Sad News, Dick Bass has Passed Away

Sad news today...Dick Bass, author of "Seven Summits" and the first person to climb all seven continental highpoints, passed away at age 85. His book was my inspiration to start highpointing. While I lack the mountaineering and financial wherewithal to do the seven continental summits, I thought the "Fifty Molehills" would be a worthy goal.
