Don't you hate it when you thought you completed a list, but

Postby Scott P » Thu Nov 29, 2012 1:01 pm

I'm not that big into specific climbing list, but don't you hate it when you thought you completed a list only to find out later that you missed a peak or two that you didn't know was on that list?

I know it's happened to someone else. :-D
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

It's not as bad as climbing a mountain that you think you haven't climbed before, only to find your name already on the register!

And I thought that was why we keep lists! #-o :lol:
Mountains cast spells on me - Why, because of the way Earth-heaps lie, should I be Chocked by joy mysteriously; stilled or drunken-gay? Why should a brown hill trail Tug at my feet to go? Why should a boggy swale Tune my heart to a nameless tale Mountain marshes know?

Oh my, I'm too OCD to make that mistake. SJ, don't you have a spreadsheet? :)

That's hilarious SJ!

How about having a list of lists? If you ever finish that list and make a new list to add to your list of lists.....well you haven't completed your list of lists now have you!

Haha you have to keep an eye on your lists for new additions! I know Larimer County has grown by at least 2 peaks over the last few months.
