Woke up on a Saturday morning February 2011 and thought "what the hell, why not?" Drove from Austin, 8 hours later I was in a hotel room in Van Horn. The next morning went up to Guadalupe Mountains and hiked to the top of Texas, then drove 9 hours back. I was hooked!
Since then, did the Southern Six-Pack in a weekend in May. In July, Kansas, Oklahoma and Colorado. Had planned Wheeler Peak in New Mexico on that trip, but they closed the forest due to fire danger the night of my flight. I had no idea 'til I arrived at the Taos Ski Valley.
Labor Day weekend, topped Rhode Island, Connecticutt, Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire. Turned around on Katahdin in Maine the day after Mount Washington. No gas left in the tank.
This Presidents' Day weekend is my first trip of the year. Flying into Baltimore and going to Delaware, New Jersey, then west for the three-fer in PA, MD and WV. Memorial weekend already booked for a re-attempt of Katahdin and Mount Marcy.
Starting to think about the big western highpoints for the summer already! Going to want to partner up on some of those!
