Hi all, I haven't gotten out backpacking since Fourth of July Weekend, but later dayhiked Goat, Brewer, Dogtooth, and Henry in preparation for some real fun! This is not new information to some of you, but if you like to have fun dayhiking peaks with partners, this is where the party will be next August. No excuses; you have a year to train, can go your own pace, can pick any or all days you want, and can arrange alternate and additional peaks with partners/groups if so inclined. Will I be there? I don't know yet. Either way, maybe my stories will inspire or entertain someone out there.

-Sean

Much thanks, Eric! I prefer it that way and I'm glad to say there were only 10 days.
