2010 Finishers

Seems like alot of finishers this year. How about if each answers the poll and replies w/ their finish peak and favorite peak? To avoid duplicates, don't reply for another person, but send them a message to reply.

This used to be my logic, almost borrowed a pair of night visions from my brother. But I want my criminal record to remain unscathed. Bottom line, I don't think its worth it and I refuse to force myself to think its a "unique" day to justify me spending 100$.
