Age: I would put it down, but in another year it would just be wrong again.

Just got started doing this on a spare weekend in the summer of 2010 after stumbling on the COHP web site. Rekindles some of that old Boy Scout experience.

Favorite Peaks (so far):
1. Buffalo Mountain (Floyd County, VA) - incredible in the fall (Sharp Top without the crowds)
