I'll be living on the wrong island, but can i bid for the 2008 Konvention anyway?
p.s. this puts a major wrench in my state highpointing plans. geez, after doing Mauna Kea, the next closest HP will be 3 time zones away. oh well, i'll still plan distant-future off-trail prominence camping hikes for Spruce Knob and Clingman's Dome...i'll just be planning them from a beach chair, with a 10-year calendar in one hand and a topo map in the other. actually i'll have rum in each hand, so never mind.
