Over the 4th of July weekend, I took the stones of SPC Wade Slack and SFC Shawn Dostie to Colorado and Utah. An Army buddy who lives in CO, Daniel Wells, had seen some of the posts I’ve made from previous Summit Project hikes and wanted to hike a stone as well. We both served in 2/502INF in Iraq with SFC Dostie, so it was good to be able to pay respects to his stone. I carried Wade Slack’s Stone. I didn’t know Wade, but I have friends that do because he grew up close to my hometown, and I carried his stone for the first TSP at BSP hike.
We took the stones up Twining Peak, 13,750′ above sea level along the continental divide in the Colorado Rockies Dan has had several knee surgeries from injuries in the military, so the climb was especially difficult for him, but we finished strong and I could not think of a better way to have spent the holiday weekend. Thanks for the opportunity. MHANF.
