I joined Peakbagger in 2013 -- the year I reconnected with the outdoors. In 2013 I lost weight, started camping with my wife and daughter, and then, after reading The Abominable and Into Thin Air, found myself thinking a lot about Everest.

I've always wanted to climb Everest, but it's obviously an unrealistic goal for me at this point in my life. (It may not always be such.) But I'm fortunate to live in Utah, a state blessed with tons of mountains I can summit without doing any technical climbing, so I set my sights on climbing Kings Peak, the highest summit in the state. I've always liked high places, from climbing every tree and rock I could manage as a kid to seeking out the best views on the rim of the Grand Canyon; I like lists; and I like challenges, all of which combine to make peakbagging appealing to me.

To get to the point where I can summit Kings Peak, I need to get in better shape, do some more hiking at higher altitudes, and do some backcountry camping. With the exception of some hiking this past summer around 9,000 feet, the last time I was in shape or did any backcountry camping was around 20 years ago. Researching closer climbs and shorter hikes led me here; I expect keeping track of my ascents will, in turn, help lead me to all sorts of fun high places.
