Too funny! =)

"An 'Alpine Start' is a start that happens in the early morning ranging from 11:00 PM on long routes to not long before sunrise for shorter routes or faster parties. An "Alpine Start" must begin in the dark."

John...thanks for the clarification. Bryan was making an attempt to be sarcastic, but obviously not everyone gets sarcasm.
