In 2012, vow to climb the highest mountains on all the continents.
Whoa! How hard can it be--a 15 year-old did it, so why can't you?
I suppose the big reason for me is time, followed by money, and then, of course, physical condition!
If you're not up to the challenge yet, try something a little more manageable--like hiking--and, closer to home--like Mount Monadnock or the White Mountains.
