Not to harsh on your good time, but I just don't get the Tuckerman's thing. I mean...spend half your day hiking, busting your balls, to take one run down a steep? Okay, I get the part of saying "I did it!", but otherwise what is the point? I'd like to go to Rio and climb the Jesus statue and jump off wearing one of those flying squirrel suits...but why would I? I get that Tuckerman's has some great terrain, but really? Not without a chair lift (or a helicopter). One thing you guys wont have to worry about is me slowing you down on the hike up!
(I have another great story about a friend's brother who tried to make the hike with him, wearing jeans, with his dog...dog disappeared. Brother eventually disappeared, too, but he was found).
