+_Shaddow_ Posted November 9, 2010 Share Posted November 9, 2010 While I visit the forums very infrequently I figured this is the spot to have this discussion. Tagging on The Navigatorz's 100 Mile Hike Challenge (WA State) and their note logged on that cache I'm considering setting up a very similar challenge based on hiking elevation rather then distance. In particular, I'd like some feedback on the elevation limit to set, most likely either 100,000 feet or 50,000 feet. My personal elevation so far this year is well above 100,000 feet and I know there are others that do this much and more. I've also have considered that this amount is probably more then typical and a 100,000 feet challenge may exclude too many people. My primary goal is similar to The Navigatorz's and to get people out hiking and exercising. A 50,000 feet goal would be about equivalent to hiking Mt Si's 3,300 ft gain about 15 times while the 100,000 mark would of course be double that. Considering that the hiking season around here is almost year round and a reasonable hiking schedule is once a week it could be completed at any time of year and would take just under 3 months. To make it more reasonable to complete during any time of year I would probably include snow shoeing since that is basically hiking with bigger boots. Also, what are other suggestions or ideas?
