It's Been a Long Ride

May 7th - Canadian, Patrick Morrow becomes the first person in history to climb each of the Seven Summits. Including mountains: Kosciuszko (2,228 m), Blanc (4,810 m), Puncak  Jaya (4,884 m), Vinson (4,892 m), Elbrus (5,642 m), Kilimanjaro (5,895 m), McKinley (6,194 m), Aconcagua (6,961 m) and Everest (8,848 m).
Well friends, this marks my 365th Google Doodle. I felt today's topic was rather fitting as I had accomplished a personal feat for myself. It was certainly a long and challenging process but I feel a great achievement of dedication. I deeply thank my wife for supporting me throughout this endeavour, coming up with this idea in the first place and being patient with me for the many long nights spent alone while I toiled away in my office (aka, man cave).

Lastly, I'd like to thank YOU the visitors that have been following my posts, suggesting doodle ideas (Thanks Mike & Linda!), liking my work on the Facebook Group and sharing with others.

For now my life is becoming even busier with our first baby arriving in the summer (again, thanks to my wife), of course this isn't the end of the blog, I will continue to post new work whenever possible, after-all  SketchyNeill is still here and I've got a lot more to do!
