Forest Gump. Diabetes. Excess Weight. The list of motivating factors could go on and on, but there is a common theme: I am responsible for my own health and fitness, and if I don't take positive steps to address my current defects, then I will most likely die a premature death.

5'10", about 235 lbs, soon approaching my 50th birthday and 25th anniversary.

Don't you agree it's time to get started?

So I will get started. And you can track my progress as I make blog entries on this website that I consider to be among the best of its kind on the whole internet.

Imagine my surprise when I found that the high point in Indiana, my home state, is a mere 25 miles or so from the place we have regular family gatherings! So, I have set my sights on conquering this state's summit.

The next family gathering will probably be Easter Sunday, April 8, 2007. I will plan to get to the gathering early so I can sneak away and plant my first summit flag!

This gives me about 3 1/2 months to prepare for my assault on the peak. I have surveyed the PBC website and found only 4 other hikers who have logged a successful ascent to the summit. And their effort was with the assistance of a motorized vehicle as they used their automobile to drive up the road to the summit. My plans now are to park my car at least one mile away and complete the ascent on foot! I will need every bit of the 3 1/2 months in order to physically prepare for this greulling attempt to reach the 1257 foot peak. That's not much elevation, you may be thinking, but the prominence is at least 100 feet!

If I have enough strength left after this summit assault, then I may attempt the daily-double by driving across the state line to the high point in Ohio, which is easily doable. Campbell Hill has an elevation of 1549 feet and a similar prominence. What a great way to start a peak-bagging career! If I reach the top of Hoosier Hill, it will be only the 5th recorded scaling of this mighty hill on this site. If I go on to complete the Campbell Hill summit, it will be only the 3rd time this website records this two peak success in a single day! Man, I'm pumped!!

Seriously, this tongue-in-cheek writing is more a poke at my own relative unhealthy shape than the serious efforts recorded on this site by the other peak-bagging enthusiasts. Anything I can do to better my health is a favorable action. And who knows where this enthusiasm will take me. I have an aunt who lives in Colorado Springs, and a hike up the 12+ mile Barr Trail to the top of Pikes Peak is attractive. And I have promised my wife a trip to New England, including a trip to the top of Mount Washington. Why not plan a hike up one of the numerous 4+ mile trails to the top?

God bless, and good luck in your own peak-bagging!!
