I really got into hiking while living on Oahu, Hawaii from 2000-2002 (most of my early peaks). My brother, Adam, and I got interested in State Highpoints after taking a trip to climb Mt. Washington, NH and Mt. Marcy, NY in summer 2001. Since then, we've maintained a brotherly competition to see who can get the most, if and when the opportunity arises during our travels. Not many great "peaks" in western PA so my current list grows rather slowly.
