LIFE WITHOUT SUMMITS WOULD REALLY SUCK I laugh about the time I first joined this site. At the time I was in New Hampshire and I realized how little that state was represented on the site (2001). I then joined and was determined to show that area of the country the best I could about that area. EastKing was suppose to be my slogan for writing up on the east coast. My ambitious goal was to show the world through this website what the Appalachian Mountains really looked like. Ironically now I am on the west coast due to this very website.

When I looked at the mountains in Washington State and California I viewed them as impossiblities. The more though I read the site the more I realized that these mountains were possible and slowly but surely the fever came on. In fact it was is site that eventually motivated me to move from New Hampshire to Seattle.

My focus during 2014 is to really start on the Bulger List. I am not much of a list person, county or state highpoint person. I just like hiking and climbing up good mountains with great views. However all the mountains on the Washington Bulger List have excellent views and offer great challenges. That is why I have started to get into rock climbing recently. I hope to expand on that skill with peaks such as North Ingalls, Sherpa, Olympus, and even Grand Teton.

I hope to get to either Mexico or Southern California during the winter but at this point whatever I can afford is wherever I can go. Thankfully the mountains have been there when everything outside of the mountains has not.

PARTNERS:
I am always looking for partners provided they follow my philosophy which is...
1. Safety
2. Fun
3. Summit-which NEVER comes before the first two.
MY ULTIMATE GOAL IN THE NEXT TWO YEARS IS TO COMPLETE ALL SUMMITS IN WASHINGTON AND OREGON OVER 10000 WHILE WORKING ON THE BULGER TOP 100 FOR WASHINGTON STATE.
Other Goals in the next two years are Whitney, Aconcaugua, Grand Teton, and many of the Colorado 14er's. Money will tell me where I end up but you can count that I will always be on a summit as long as I live.
