Me at Mt. Elmore in the fall of 2010. My second Mt. hike.

Camel's Hump is in the distance (one of my goal Mtns) - viewed southwest of Mt. Elmore

A tree along the Southern Grand Canyon rim while visiting with my Mom when I lived in AZ.

I'm doing something new...lately, I remind myself that "I have to start somewhere." Even if I say it multiple times a day. It is important to remind myself that if I have a momentary lapse, I can restart at any time.

- Ride the Harpoon Point to Point Bicycle Race to raise money for the Hunger-Free Vermont
- Hike Camels Hump
- Hike the Worcester Range (13 miles!)
- Hike Mt. Lafayette
- Learn archery

- Learn basic plumbing skills
- Bicycle to and from work one day (9 miles one way, uphill for half of it!)

- Visit Yosemite National Park
- Drive a race car
- Go to Alaska
- Go to Kamchatka
- Go to England
- Go to Ireland
- Go to Poland/Germany
- Take a genealogy field trip (or trips)
- Publish four books!
- Be a volunteer federal or state park host for a summer season
- Travel to every state in the United States with my husband and anyone in the family who'll come

- Retrofit a 1967 Pontiac Firebird to be more ecologically friendly (with no computer parts!)
