2009 saw me finally achieve a long standing goal I have had to climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. My summit of Everest on May 23rd closed the book on a project I have been working on for the past 10 years. Along the way I have summited several state high points: AK, HI, WA, ID, WY, MT, CA and UT. My plan is to keep on hitting a few each year. I hope to do OR and NV in 2010.
