They call this the Hill Country, so let's find some hills to climb!

Where I come from, nature is feared rather than respected, and land is just a commodity. My grandpa here in the States taught me there was more to nature and the land than that, first through birding and camping.

I started hiking as part of a weight-loss journey in college; while I've always been more of a geography buff and a birder than anything else, I've gotten in a few decent summits through the years, and it's kept me from ever reverting back to the socially-isolated and physically-impaired "indoor person" I once was.

A few personal peak-bagging rules:
No trespassing. No fence-hopping. CALA (closely-as-legally-possible) is kosher so long as you're within a reasonable distance (less than 100m horizontal, less than 2m vertical), otherwise tag as unsuccessful and be honest about it. If it doesn't look like my cup of tea (challenge level, access issues, etc), ignore it, and leave it for someone else. Even urban summits might hide interesting geology or history -- maybe that "junk bump" is the remnant of a salt dome oil strike. Sometimes, it's more than just about the numbers. Look for the story. Be kind to yourself and those around you. Assume best intentions but recognize safety risks.

Rules may be bent *if* there are mitigating circumstances, but remember that it's better to walk away and peakbag another day than risk incarceration or firearms discharge, especially when you're a person of color in the American South.

In short:

You shouldn't have to notch fourteeners and ultras to be a peak-bagger, especially if you live in the lowlands. Play your own game. Have fun. Be cool. Do what you can to raise awareness of the outdoors and nature and everything this world has to offer.

Peakbagging needs ambassadors, not gatekeepers.
