This ambitious (for me) plan means that I will have to do do some backpacking and tent-camping, which will be a first for me. Up to this point, I've been a truck-camping, day-hiking kind of guy. I'm looking forward to taking this next step in experiencing the glories of outdoor Colorado. I just wish I had moved here 30 years ago, as opposed to 5. C'est la vie....
Regardless, Rainier is in the picture for early September. It will be my first glacier travel experience and I'm going guided, so I plan on asking a lot of questions and learning as much as I can from them. Hopefully, I'll still get a week or two (if not 10) of Colorado 14ers in at some point.

And figure out some of the logistics of more spicier 14ers with an approach by bike: Elks, Chicago Basin, etc. The challenge is to go UL enough to make it realistic, yet schlep enough gear to do three, disparate activities (cycling, hiking/scrambling, camping) safely. Lots of conditioning, as well.
Take it from there.

My first will be re-attempting Quandary, after getting chased off last summer by a nasty thunderstorm right before reaching the summit. I'll also be hiking with a good friend who will be attempting his first 14er. Can't go wrong with Quandary for that.
The second will be the SW ridge on Mt. Sneffels, which will be my first class 3 climb. Some experienced members here have graciously offered to go with me on this excursion, and I couldn't be more excited about the opportunity.
Non-14er related, but I also plan on hiking with the family up to Glass Lake & Sky Pond in RMNP. From what I've seen, it looks like an absolutely stunning area.

It really is a great lake hike. One of my favorite places in RMNP.
2nd priority is to go up to Sky Pond or summit Hallet...
Wish I could do more... Making the trip every summer now just to get some of it out of my system... Most of the year I just live vicariously through 14ers.com It truly IS God's country up there in the high country!

I'd be interested in these also, let me know when, and maybe our paths would cross....
Cool! Maybe we should do a Wichita area 14ers meeting again too!
Stearman Bar & Grill! Be there.....

Wow! That sounds like quite an undertaking. It'll be great to follow your progress.
Best of luck!!
