Look at the January/February issue of this nice magazine for an article about the OK HP, the OK2002 convention, and Jack's ashes. I believe that the writer of the aritcle is getting help from Jean Trousdale and from Brendan Leonard's thesis. - John M.

I know the B&N in downtown Fort Worth carries this magazine and wouldn't mind making the trip if it's on the stands. I've picked up this magazine in the past and is a good one.

Dan Robbins' article about highpointing in Idaho appears in this month's edition (January 2005) of Idaho Magazine.

Dan told a story of his adventures on the Valley County highpoint, credited Andy Martin for determining the highpoints, credited Bob Packard and Ken Jones for being the first completers, gave an overview of the Idaho county highpoints and highpointing in general.

There is no online version so hit your newsstands this week before the next issue replaces it. I am requesting a copy for the Club archvies.

Mario Locatelli, from Montana, who became the oldest (71 years 6 months) to summit McKinley was featured in the Official McKinley Climbing Report for 2004. Incidentally Denali was his 50 state completion. You probably recognize Mario's famous summit headstand pose.
