Many congratulations Fred and Doug on achieving Goatdom, particularly as SOTA in the States has been going for a relatively short time. Your dedication has certainly paid off.

Thanks. Legs are fine, knees a little sore :wink: But I am ready for some more.

Sore knees? All you have to do is eliminate the down hill part. That’s what makes my knees sore…probably you too. Maybe there’s a hill that has no down part? You just live up there? Or you switch frequencies and have Donald Trump’s Eurocopter come get you? What if you descend facing backward? Maybe you come down on the ski lift but do the climb on foot…then the people on the lift would see you climbing and say “that poor blighter hasn’t the cash to even take the lift”. You could hold out a tin cup at the top and make enough to pay for some sore knee balm.

Two ski poles here, and they are just as important if not more on the down hill as you say :slight_smile: There is an elevator on Whiteface in NY, and I was so tempted, after doing the 260 foot stair climb to make it official, I so wanted to try that elevator. It would make a good SOTA story. It is too bizarre, an elevator!
