Personal Goals/Trips I'd like to do...

Kimbo often catches me scheming about my next ride, ski, run, or climb as I'm on ridewithgps.com mapping out a route, or pouring over maps trying to figure out how much time it'll take for me to summit peak X, before Nikko wakes up.  And the truth is (surprise, surprise), I actually DO have lots of ideas floating around in my head about what my next adventure should be... it's actually quite exhausting thinking about trip after trip...

So I figure I'd share them with the world... if you have a comment or have done any of these trips, feel free to let me know...
