Great story - just read it in the course of a day and a half. When I saw your username (before seeing Flickr username later) I wondered if you were a Stoltzfus and it tripped me out to see you later mention Honey Brook as I grew up near there (and of course knew quite a few Stoltzfuses back in school). Those roads are great breeding grounds for motorcyclists, I still miss them sometimes. Thanks for putting the time and effort into all these posts, it was really something and I enjoyed it very much. I've been considering climbing recently, after visiting AK and having someone mention the Firn Line podcast. A few episodes of that really get mountaineering ideas dancing in your head, haha, so those portions were a welcome addition.
