    Figured this was the best subforum to post in for this topic....

    anyone else out there a highpointer? It's where you reach the highest elevation in every state. Some of them you can literally drive up to, others are 2 day hikes/climbs.

    Done 7 of them so far. major thrill.

    Cool idea...Im trying to make it all 50 states first but I like that concept. Actually, I have by happenstance hit two: Mt Mitchell in NC and High Point (actual name) in Sussex County (Northwesternmost NJ county). What ones have you conquered. And what is Louisiana's highest - I would assume north near border with Mid Arkansas?

    I've done the following:

    OK, KS, NE, LA, MO, AR, TX. Louisiana is Mount Driskill, about 20 miles east of Shreveport. it's just a hill in the middle of the woods. not the best view, but the highest none-the-less!

    TX kicked our asses....8,954FT or something like that. Guadalupe Mountain.

    Don't know yet. It's taken me 2 and a half years just to do those 7. mainly because of work. closest ones from here are MS/FL/AL.
