Are Highpointers collectors?

Response to So true ...


I've always collected things since I was a little, stamps, Jim Kjelgaard books, baseball cards, mountaineering books, and now state highpoints. I have often wondered if Highpointers are collectors at heart and if their personalities lead them to collect things. Any other Highpointers that have collecting-related hobbies besides highpoints?

Mark S....your comment about what the heck to do when your finished reminds me of a story that the owner of our local antique store told me. He had a man come in his store who collected old issues of "Fur, Fish, and Game" magazine. He only needed 5 issues and he would have them all. After searching through the pile he found all 5 issues that he needed. He decided to only take one issue, because he did not want his quest to end. The thrill of the chase is sometimes more exciting than finishing the goal.
