I'd just tag along with Dan... ha!

I'd love to go back to Peru, climb in Antarctica, and see the Himalaya at some point... but other than that... I've been very fortunate...

But it'd be pretty tough to beat a USA road trip, checking off the national parks, baseball stadiums, concerts, food/beer, etc... probably be even more fun for you young single guys... hee hee

And then the next 30 years climbing the steps at the free clinic to get your Valtrex script updated.

yah, but you wouldn't have the FA so there would be no glory in that summit.
Don't try to argue with idiots. You aren't the dumbass whisperer.

It'd be like climbing the Sharks Fin on Meru compared to a Colorado 14er!

As my salad days such as they were are over.

Winter - mild peaks and trekking in NZ & AUS
Spring - Great Basin
Summer - mild peaks and hiking in C-Rockies & Sierra's
Fall - Wasatch and Bear River ranges.

Karakorum ridge and transfer to Himalayas then, not easy to go, but quite enough for my happiness :D

I actually did that last year. Not just mountaineering, but rock climbing as well. 4 months in Peru, from May to Late August, then Nepal for autumn, then Spain for winter season, and then Chamonix for spring and summer. Totally recommend it.

Cissa's trip is sort of a dream trip - definitely

I'd love to go get dissolved in Himalayas :)

Could be great to go to Antarctica

and every place where there is snow and mountain
