What we really need are RF readers at the summit so that we can automatically update our checklists in real time

Why else do you think there is a "Cell Phone reception from the summit" section of 14ers.com? http://14ers.com/php14ers/cellreportmain.php

That'd be kinda cool to have night hiking icon. A possible upside to having that is dispersing the summer crowds throughout all hours of the day and night, alleviating day-time traffic jams.

oh my. No comment on Quote #1

For #2 - are you implying that an icon on this site would significantly influence the amount of people hiking in the night vs the day over the summer??

I am doing a "night hike" tonight - but not by choice - that's what happens when you have a 9-5er :(

A possible upside...Meaning, a possibility. As in, perhaps. Also as in, an outside-of-the-box, plausible idea, maybe from the hardcore climbers.

I nominate the Blue Berry as the appropriate symbol
for a night time conquest in honor of Fats Domino:

Lyrics - Blue Berry Hill

I found my thrill / On blueberry hill
On blueberry hill / When I found you
The moon stood still / On blueberry hill /
It lingered until / My dreams came true
