Ped: I still check this forum about once a week. Not sure why except maybe because it’s habit now. Anyway, I missed the TV coverage of your interview, but saw the replay on the web. As I mentioned before it’s unfortunate your story had to be told at all, but hopefully it will alert people to the dangers candles can pose. For instance, my wife likes to light a candle now and again. I’ve become paranoid about watching the thing since hearing your story.
Best of luck with your remaining hikes up the 48.
