I can only claim Mt Mitchell, N.C. as my highest hike at 6684ft. :CAMPING: Of course, any peak outside of Ohio seems huge.

It only counts if you do them in the winter. For example, Mount Washington, New Hamphshire in the summer;

Actually, I’m looking forward to it! Some might ask, “Why bother?” It’s a neat way to go see things and visit areas that you otherwise might not. In other words, if hiking every high point in each state is a way to travel and experience so many cool things, then so-be-it! And who knows, I might meet some cool LOST folks along the way.

Besides “hiking” the highest point in Florida, I’m also looking forward to taking an RV trip all the way to Key West. :mrgreen:

Make sure to post up if ya come out to NC, it's been awhile since I've been up to mitchel and i'd enjoy a revisit. More than just a few years ago I spent several months out on the blue ridge and did a bit of roaming, fishing, etc and a little bit of getting sprayed by a skunk lol

Very Cool! It's been several years since I've been in a seat harness and I’ve never been in a chest harness. Rainier is on my list, but I would need to buy gear, freshen up on my mountaineering skills, and learn a few new technical skills.

Will you be using a guide?
