- through-hike Indiana's Knobstone Trail
- complete my Cumberland Trail 50-mile patch requirements
- hike in at least two new states.
I did the second this summer and completed the third just under the wire (California this summer and Arizona on Tuesday) but not the first. So, I guess it carries over to next year. My goal my 2010 is to backpack at least once a month. HOWEVER, this goal is subject to abandonment depending on where I move to. If I get a job in Alaska, I am not backpacking in Nome in November. Sorry, I'm a wimp.
