Catamount, thanks for your contributions to the page. Hey, this thread has 1218 responses..I think the second longest thread in SP!

My 2013 HP goals: TX, UT, IL, WI, MN, MI (will give me 37 if I am lucky enough to reach them all).

Good luck with your 2013 goals, Florida Frank. Looks like you have a good mix of highpoints there. The Upper Midwest HPs are a lot of fun.

Bump. Didn't want this thread to disappear too far down into the forum. It's got such staying power :-) What do some other SHPers have for plans and goals this year?

I know early season can be a dangerous time in the mountains but i'll be attempting a solo expedition to Campbell and Hoosier Hill in 2 weeks.

Also in spring hopefully FL and TX. Then this summer something out west. Kings Peak has kinda caught my fancy and maybe combine that with Borah but we'll see.

One list nears an end and another begins ...

About a month into training for Mount Hood May 31 to June 2. If successful, it will be my 49th State Highpoint but more importantly my 10th lower 48 Ultra-prominence peak. :)

Great goals. Joe and Alex, if you are interested in rendesvousing for Kings let me know. Though just be forewarned, I probably will attempt as a long day trip. I do better traveling light, long, and relatively fast as opposed to lugging a bunch of camping equipment along. We did it that way on Whitney and it worked just fine.

Catamount, good luck on Hood. Third time's a charm. Keep on telling myself that so I will be inspired to go back and actually summit Rainier in the future.

Frank and Alex,

I may want to join you on Kings Peak. I'm moving to Summit County CO later this week with my wife. I'll only be a days drive from Kings Peak and wouldn't mind having an "East Coast" SP gathering in Utah. :D

Nate, that's wonderful. Good luck with the move. You will surely be in your element more in central Colorado than in central Pennsylvania! Let's keep in touch and see if we can work on a date for Kings. Awesome!

Sounds good! Yeah I'm glad I got a job soon after I graduated in the field I wanted to go into, in a place I have been wanting to move too. We hope to have visitors so let me know when your in the area! Will be in touch for sure.

I know I was previously joking about this but a huge blizzard came out of nowhere yesterday, even though it supposed to be spring. And driving between Campbell and Hoosier Hills on small farm roads in whiteout conditions was a touch scary. Luckily there are no cliffs or anything just farmland. Hertz upgraded me for free to an SUV for no apparent reason, which has never happened before, someone up there was rooting for me not to get stranded in the great borderlands of Ohio/Indiana. You never know when adventure will find you
