Well, every 14'er hiker should carry a Compass. Compass IPA is my choice!

No. We're totally weird.

Where it's even weirder. At least it cuts down on my travel costs. I don't have to leave home to experience a third world country, complete with religious extremists.

Says the guy from Vermont... by way of Texas... and South Dakota. Heck, by Manitou Springs standards, you're a world traveler!

But I'm only temporarily displaced. ;)
Unfortunately, I don't know if I'll be back in Manitou before this happy hour. It's more likely I'll still be a flat lander in eastern SD.

Sorry to hear that Darin... I had a good time up in South Dakota a couple of years ago. If you were into highpointing, I would recommend 7,242' Harney Peak (S.D. state highpoint), 5,013' Rankin Ridge (Wind Cave National Park highpoint) and 3,340' Red Shirt Table (Badlands National Park highpoint). They're not 13ers, but they would help you boost your 7ers, 5ers and 3ers lists! You don't get a chance to do that very often here in Colorado.

Thanks for the suggestions Susan!
Depending on my next work destination and how much time I have to get there, I may swing through those parts. Right now, I'm on the E side of the state, far removed from those areas.
Plus, I'm working 60+ hrs a week, and Sundays are reserved for school work. Therefore I don't have much free time on my hands.

Enough drift, back to original topic....
