My goals for 2021 are a little on the softer side but as my motto is " never, never, never give up" here it goes...
1) Continue to be in good health so that I can be outside enjoying hikes,climbs,skiing,snowswhoeing and anything related to being outdoors all year long.
2)Hike 3 more fourteeners
3) Get some help and mentoring to start doing some class 3 climbs
4) Hike 4-5 more thirteeners
5) Continue to explore the Weminuche Wilderness- my favorite area in Colorado!
6) Hopefully, hike with friends as right now most of my hikes are solo.I do not mind them but I know I gain confidence when I am with another hiker.
7) This year I was meant to climb Kilimanjaro but the trip has been postponed to summer 2022. Still super excited about this amazing opportunity!.
8) Continue to support,advocate and help educate people about the mountains, the thrills and adversities.I currently help with CFI and I am Gaia GPS "ranger" , but most of all, I want people to love the mountains and respect them.
Never,never give up!.

Really cool seeing everyone's list.

Mine:
1) Get a few winter 13ers in. Looking at Marble, Eagle, Homestake, the unnamed cents near Lake City, and North Star

2) A week in the Weminuche bagging as many 13ers as I can and sleeping in as many scenic spots as I can

3) Kit Carson N Ridge and a revisit of LB-Blanca with my friend who would love it

4) A 2-3 day excursion in the HCW for the 13ers there

5) All the Lake City Cents

6) Backpacking in Yosemite

7) Retry the Stonewall Century bike ride but actually be prepared and fit and on the right bike this time
The days I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, I have really good days.

So when is it ok to give up?

Always good to read what people are trying to accomplish this year. Mine were interrupted last year by travel restrictions and the rona, so hopefully with the vaccine and such I can get back to enjoying those Colorado summers once more. So in no particular order, these are outdoors-related goals:

Stay healthy and employed. I’m mentally drained from the past nine months and have managed to dodge the virus so far. Some of my friends have not been so lucky, and some of my fellow employees have not made it.

Complete the 58.

Start the Cents.

Get to 6000 m. Probably the Andes.

International travel once more, get to a few more countries. I like Latin America.

Cascade peaks- Hood, Adams, Sisters, Shasta.

50000+ ft vertical for the year. Well okay, 75000+ is a reasonable goal.

Ski a 14er, or more. And more hiking for turns in general, like about 1/4 to 1/3 of my days on a board.

More barefoot 14ers, and hiking in general.

I'm a bit disappointed John Gatt hasn't posted in this thread.
For me, my goals would be 1500 miles, finishing the 14ers(Culebra, Little Bear, Sunlight, and Eolus), visiting all the National Parks in Utah, doing a few 13ers in the Cimmarons, and improving my photography. Thanks to Matt Payne and his trip reports for sparking that interest, I really enjoy photography.
