After I climbed my first high point, I related the story to a friend.
“You should climb ALL of the high points, of all fifty states!” he said. “and drink your summit beer at each one!”
“dude… some are like five feet off the ground. Not really summits.”
“But some are real mountains! Go, do it. I dare you to do it.”
2) I can’t say no to a dare.
