Speaking on the Joe Finnegan Show this morning Ricki explained what he endured over the weekend.

''nighttime was my favorite time of the whole thing because the mountain just decided to stop blowing out gale at me and decided to stop raining  on top of me and it was just so calm and it was so beautiful.''
