    A couple points:

    LiDAR does NOT survey every single spot in a location. It is a series of points, and if there's a gap over the actual highpoint, it could result in an artificially low peak value....

    Thanks so very much for posting that, Dave. I had heard of the legendary JR some number of years ago when he was working the 48, and things like "he's like a ghost" is pretty much the impression I've...

    Call me cynical.

    1) They apparently proposed something similar last year (no solo climbs, have to have summited a 7000m peak). Seeing as this is a proposal (as was that...), I'm not getting my...

    I've used the more gentler method of a hair dryer.

    But, seeing as my wife and I are now separated, I guess I need to get a hair dryer. :rolleyes:

    I am sitting, once again shaking my head with amazement, and with a big smile on my face at your continuing accomplishments. Bravo!

    I'm guessing you're going to be busy in New York for a while. :D

    Chip, I have one genuine, bona fide can of Sno-Seal that dates back to the mid-80's, and I can attest that it still works just fine!

    And if we turn your screen name over to a fancy marketing firm, it would get changed to wheelfootiesboardpole. Clear, right? :rolleyes:

    Urf, yeah, that's a little too busy for my tastes. I thought the single bottle of Captain was amusing when I was there. Four is whacked out.

    My personal view:

    1) Not trash. It's a purposeful object marking a summit.
    2) It's a small object.
    3) You're unlikely to stumble upon it unless you are peakbagging, and the canister is usually...

    About freaking time (Eversource, not the thread!). Thanks for all the updates over the years. Sadly, above the notches I expect a lasting effect of all this, that being animosity to those who chose...
