Dad raises the bar

I've been a little sluggish posting this one, especially since it involves the daddio laying the smack down on me in our Transoceanic One Day Climbing Record Competition (TODCRC) and I'm unsure what insane combination of brutal climbs I need to put together to compete. So, in case your following along at home, here is the progression:
Me: 4,080ft
Dad: 6,700
Me: 7,880
Dad: 8,694
Me: 9,300
Dad: 12,000
Yup, you read that correctly, twelve thousand feet, over 80-90 miles. Not as if he went out and tacked a few hundred on that I could easily come up with. Nope, he added 2,700 feet. That's like tacking Magnolia on the end of my previous attempt, something that I know I couldn't have done. Seems I'll have to put some serious time into figuring out a new route (which is harder than you think since I refuse to repeat the same roads on climbs, loops are where its at) and also pacing myself when I do it. Anyways, here are a few pics that dad sent from his ride.
