Doreen Makes This HP Special...  Sucess!

I love hearing the history of this highpoint and the surrounding area. I have to be honest; Doreen made this HP special for me. I visited before sunset, and gave her a "Thank You" card. I had never met with or spoken to her before then, but I wanted to give her something for all she had done for this highpoint and highpointers alike. We spent a long time talking with each other, sharing stories... my favorite was the "Candid Camera" story she told me. She even directed me to the "other" U.S. Geological disk down another street. Awesome lady.
This was the seventh of seven HPs (plus Washington, D.C.) I would reach in two days' time. HP #31 for me.

Ebright  Sucess!

Visited here on my way home from a trip to WV. Hit up Fort Reno earlier in the day. Nothing too exciting here. Parked and walked around. Every car that passed stared at me. Had some trouble locating the USGS marker but got it eventually.

HP #13  Sucess!

Did the drive-by during our east coast trip. Saw the blue sign of course, also lots of cars and believe it or not, one other highpointer. Debate topic afterwards - was this summit "tougher" than Florida ?

HP # 12  Sucess!

Glad to have this one done. I was almost ashamed taking a picture of myself by the sign. But it's a highpoint nonetheless.

Neato  Sucess!

The wife and I achieved this highpoint early in the day. We met and chatted with Doreen for a while- what a sweet lady. The USGS marker is right across the street, to the left of the nearest telephone pole, cut out of the sidewalk. It's easy to find. HP #3 for me, HP #1 for the wife.

In the dark  Sucess!

I read the sign and searched for the highest ground then I contineud my drive.

A short drive  Sucess!

This was prep session for my attempted ascent of Mt. Frissell the following day. It was a short drive from my parent's house in suburban Philadelphia. A good HP for those Highpointers that like to shop at the mall.

7th Highpoint in 4 days  Sucess!

After climbing Mount Frissell, CT and visiting High Point, New Jersey we still had one Highpoint left to do on our final day before our flight left Philly the next morning. Hungry and tired we drove to the top of Delaware in the dark, got out in a neighborhood filled with houses and took our picture by the sign. Sherpani was discontent. Bribed her with promise of a good meal, and told her she could plan our next "vacation". HP #30. HP #21 for my wife. 7th highpoint of the trip.

What a view!  Sucess!

I reached the summit shortly before dusk. While breathing in the rarified air, I took in the sweeping, majestic view of the nearby trailer park from this lofty parapet.

Seriously, see my note under additions if you want to experience some really neat local trails while you are in Wilmington.

Rough Hike  Sucess!

This one wasn't too difficult...funny though to have everyone in the neighborhood staring.

Such Silliness  Sucess!

Drove there on a whim and then went out to Olive Garden afterwards......

Highpoint #14  Sucess!

Did this one with my wife (her first) and my friend/coworker, Bristol Ellington (his second). They weren't as in to the experience as I was. They sat in the car while I looked for, and found, the USGS brass or bronze benchmark across the street from the sign. I also went to the portion of the neighboring trailer park rumored to be 3 feet higher. Beware of the dog!

End to a day of wandering  Sucess!

Wandering with my son. To NYC from Philly, via the Del-Mar-Va peninsula. Arrived at 8 pm. Obligatory pictures, then off to Hoboken! (Highpointing as a hobby is indicative we all have issues!)

10:30 PM Highpoint  Sucess!

On the way back north from Mt. Rogers. Summited this mighty mountain after 5 hours of traffic on the freeway

Met Doreen  Sucess!

Was there in 2001 and again in 2005 with my wife. Both times, easy drive up. Met Doreen K., who lives nearby and is the self-appointed historian of the HP. We walked the fields and trailer park and the points up on the PA state line. She also told us where we could locate one of the witness markers - it's along the sidewalk, across from the blue sign, in a cut-out. You may have to brush away some dirt to see it. It's not much but it is something tangible to tag. Actually, a fun experience.
