List Description

Are you a peakbagger afraid of heights, snow, cold weather, cliffs, crags, lack of oxygen, and many other traditional hazards of mountain climbing? Then this is the list for you.The highest peak in the Bahamas is lower that the Manhattan Island high point, and quite possibly lower than where you are right now reading this.

This list was compiled by looking an old copy of the offical government "Atlas of the Bahamas" that had good maps with spot elevations for various points on the islands. I assumed that the island high points were among these spot elevations. However, many of these points are unconfirmed, and if you are serious about this list, you should consider doing some research using small-scale topographic maps to verify the locations and elevations presented here. Or inquire locally.

Note that not all islands are shown here. The high points of the Andros archipelago are uncertain, for example. So there is not real cutoff on this list for now, and it is just a semi-random listing of most of the major Bahama island high points.

I have no idea what ground conditions are when trying to access these points. There may be issues with private property and dense tropical vegetation. So despite the lack of any real elevation, completing this list may actually be quite challenging: getting to all the islands, verifying the points, and finding a way to get there could become quite a project.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to www.attrinity.com play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
