Contact me at william.musser@tetratech.com. Colorado, Florida, and Maine are my home states. I enjoy teaming with others to pursue obscure summits especially ones with bushwhacking and complex route finding.

"Peakbagging" is distinguished from "highpointing" in that pursuits are peaks with lists requiring some threshold of prominence. In highpointing, the goal is reaching the highest point in some geographic area (county, state, etc.) I favor destinations maximizing exercise and outdoor experience over CHPs having multiple candidates and private land issues. Peakbagging is my passion, thus my primary use of this website although I am on LOJ as well now.

This site allows developing personal goals and lists and summit in however you most enjoy. Thanks to all that has make this site possible.
