I wonder if this goal would qualify as a DSM diagnosis. Maybe he is in need of a mood stabilizer or SSRI.

Any highpointer making fun of or disparaging this guy ought to be given a black pot and kettle for Christmas. :p

Poor guy..how many new Starbucks open per day, I wonder.
What is the highest Starbucks in each state, US?

I can't help but ponder this question.
Personally I've spent about $5 (don't like coffee) lifetime at Starbucks, so the chain's success is even more amazing to me. If I drank a latte a day, as many do, there's about $1,200 a year I could save to spend on highpointing somehow.
Anyway, I read a couple years ago, Starbucks had a shop in all states but the Cowpoke state, Wyoming. But now that they have a movie about gay cowboys there, I'm sure it's fashionable enough for Starbucks to move in. Actually I'm sure they're there already, Jackson Hole seems hip enough to have one. Still didn't see a 'bucks in Pinedale on the way to climb Gannett, though.
So what is the highest Starbucks in the US? I actually spent part of my $5 at Starbucks in Beaver Creek, Colorado at about 9,000 feet. This could be the nation's highest Starbucks.
Where is the nearest Starbucks to each state highpoint?
