Well I ate Taco Bell the other night with 3 Fat Tires and miraculously didn't gas the poor dog out of the room later that night.
I didn't pay a lot for my current muffler and I actually managed to save 15% (probably more) on my car insurance. And all THAT my friends was accomplished even though I've never set foot in a Holiday Inn Express. :mrgreen:

Oh, and for a white guy, I think I can hear 'Jimmy' pretty damn well.

People seem to be all riled up here. I always thought that the point of it all was to go and have a good time, hang out with great people and challenge yourself a bit too...

Had the lowest numbers of the stats that you note in probably thirty years. Climbed 5 peaks although one was actually called a hill.

With that said, I set a new record this year in taking 14 different plane flights for a single summit that I'd been yearning to climb for over 20 years. I also fulfilled a lifelong goal of visiting Venice and Rome (with my family). In the process I climbed to the top of the dome on St. Peter's. What an incredible ascent! Do it if you're ever in Rome (or more specifically, the Vatican).

For these reasons, and a few others that I haven't brought up, 2010 was one of the best years ever in terms of accomplishing my goals and being with wonderful people. Best to all in 2011!

i ski toured the ruth gorge, took my first solo climbing fall, got my dream job as an ER in my favorite ER on earth, threated to kick the hell out of a schmuck who threatened one of my nurses in that ER, started moonlighting to pay for the most awesome Christmas for my kids and a trip to Cancun with my wife for our 10th anniversary, used my moonlighting money instead to pay for the adoption of this 7lb little person asleep next to me, got horribly out of shape, and have never been better.

not a bad 2010, i agree, Rob.

i'll go back to where i slipped on the ice tomorrow, and get something done...if i can see straight as i'm on diaper duty tonight.

If you count every smaller magnitude hike and "rock' outing I've had in Utah and elsewhere (I only used my more major outings for my 207,700 ft. calculation), then I have somewhere close to 400,000 ft. of vertical elevation gain. Oh, I didn't even calculate in my 12,000 ft. gain dayhike of Iron to Baldy double traverse.
I'm the top troll.

Oh good. Thanks for clarifying that. Now I can sleep well.

For any of you treating this as a contest of miles and vertical feet, here's a bit of perspective from someone who specializes in both: 655,850 vertical, 4,100 miles.

From the 2011 thread, there is that 76-year-old who quietly averages more than 100k' /year. He doesn't count; I just look at his typical weeks, and can estimate. No, he wouldn't be at the top of the list (nor would he care), but if I can do that stuff in 20 years, I'll be damn happy.

Here he was on his 76th birthday last May:

Not even close, but I managed to do some other fun stuff. Hopefully I have a few more years of faster and farther before advancing middle age catches up with me. If I'm really lucky, I'll be alive and getting out enough to do 100k+ feet per year in another 43 years.
