Did zodis give a reason for leaving? I found his information very helpful through this form, sad to see him go.

Whatever happened to our fearless leader, GEM Trail? He hasn't signed in since November 10. :?

Don't know. I tried to engage him in our November highpointers hike in PA but never got a response. Hope he is OK.

Different topic, bought a ticket to SLC for August 2-6 so I am committed to Kings Peak and #32!

Hope you have a great time on King's, guys. It is a heck of a fun mountain.

I just put up a TR for my Mount Hood trip. Enjoy.

Good luck with the weather! Kings Peak is great hike but the weather is notoriously unpredictable. We had rain, lightening, snow and hail during my mini epic adventure there.

in the past week or so, I have visited three different state highpoints (#38, #40, and #42) that are located within different time zones than the majority of their respective states... does anybody care to guess which they are? are there any other highpoints that fulfill this criteria that I may be overlooking?

florida's highpoint is in the central time zone, but most of the state is in the eastern time zone

texas's highpoint is in the mountain time zone, but most of the state is in the central time zone

most of michigan is in the eastern time zone, but a part of the upper peninsula is in the central time zone, although i am not sure which time zone the highpoint is in - this may be a potential fourth candidate, i'll have to check on that one

i also recently visited a highpoint in the eastern time zone that represents a state primarily within the central time zone... that would be tennessee

come to think of it, looks like south dakota, nebraska, north dakota, and perhaps kansas all have highpoints in the mountain time zone even though the states are mostly within the central time zone

hopefully tomorrow i'll get a chance to bust out my road atlas and determine which highpoints officially make the list

According to http://www4.wittenberg.edu/academics/hf ... ticle.html Utah (Kings) is easier than Idaho (Borah). Same gain, but Kings is longer, at about 29 miles.

You might want to post something in Plans and Partners. I'm game for Kings over Borah, depending on date and one/two day.

FWIW, there's a feller over on the America's Roof Forum who is looking for a partner for King's and Borah in August. He's been on that forum forever and is heavily involved in the Highpointers Club. Family guy, I think in his 50s.
