An old friend of mine is on the 100 peak Challenge. He gave me a list of peaks he wants to do. I scratched a few off his list, one which was Groan.
Sort of snickered on that one. Heres a picture of Jeff in 1958. He's the tall one a Boy Scout. One of the leaders o f our Cub Scout pack. I'm one of the Cubs Scouts. Jeff is 70.

So I tell him lets do Red Hill first. He's about 100lbs over weigh to boot. I figured this would make or break the rest of the desert peaks. Well, he slipped once but went right on up. We'll do Windy next so I can point out the peak poisons on his list. Jeff on Red Hill. He slipped one time but slow and steady going up. Us old farts can hike!

Good for him! Use it or loose it. I plan on spending my time after retirement traveling and hiking. God willing of course.
