High points for TM

Postby gurlyclimber » Fri May 11, 2007 8:30 am

Just a thought. David once told me that he wanted to get all of the State high points. We should make sure that David reaches that goal. How about when one of us reach the summit we sign his name on the summit register or leave a photo or something memorable in the canister in memory of our buddy. He's already beat all of us to the top I'm sure. :-)

That is a nice idea - my husband and I are highpointers. We've done 33 and plan to knock out a bunch more (hopefully through 40) by the end of the year. We'll sign his name at the registers!

Good idea. RenoBob and Les (if I have that correct) will be on Nevada's highpoint this weekend, I believe. TalusMonkey and USAK, too, I think, were planning on joining them.

Jen and I will be there Memorial Day weekend. Stay tuned.

I am going to do Mt. Whitney this September and possibly Mt. Shasta, his presence will be with me on those summits. Pictures will follow the trip.
Have you ever stopped to think....then forget to start again?

Im planning on doing Whitney, Guadalupe, and a short trip to Arkansas for Mount Magazine/Signal Hill. I will also be on Nevada's highpoint later this year as well, and will be sure to sign his name in the registers.

I am planning on climbing Mt. Marcy in New York and signing his name to the register this summer..
On my first take-off, I hit second gear and went through the speed limit on a two-lane blacktop highway full of ranch traffic. By the time I went up to third, I was going 75 and the tach was barely above 4000 rpm....
And that's when the Ducati got its second wind. From 4000 to 6000 in third will take you from 75 mph to 95 in two seconds - and after that, Bubba, you still have fourth, fifth, and sixth. Ho, ho.

I was actually going to be meeting him for the first time up on Rainier in July. I was already planning on doing this for that trip, may bring some colt 45 for him as well.

Here is the high point for the state I was born and breed in. It is exciting!! I will tackle this one on one of my trips to see the folks, there is actually a registry on it!

living in the northeast I would be honored to sign TM's name at some of nearby high points I'm visiting this summer.

Rockymtnhigh69, when are you climbing Marcy? I'm also planning a hike of Marcy this summer.

Yep, Leslie and I are leaving today for Boundary Peak. We'll be leaving a TM memorial. :YY
I need a volunteer to help me post the TR when I get back because I'm clueless about attaching photos to the TR :oops:
Everyone have a SAFE weekend, I don't want to read another accident report about anyone else on Monday.
Ciao,
Bob

PS. If anyone knows the forum member GoHigher, please have him PM me with his full name and the name of his friend. I need that for the Culebra reservation on Tuesday.
Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.
