On page 3 of the 11 page April issue, there's a nice aticle about the effort to place Jack's ashes on major peaks of the world. "Escort Jack to Everest" is the title of this article which provides a lot of history about Jack and the Club.

Expedition News is in its 14th year.

Thank you Jean Trousdale for alerting us of this!

"D.C.'s Puny Peak Enough to Pump Up 'Highpointers'

This is a wonderful article about the newly surveyed & marked highpoint of Washington D.C. This article has two photos and features the amazing efforts of Robert Hyman to finally survey the highest natural ground of Fort Reno and get a marker placed there (no small feat considering the numerous
official channels needed for approval!). Formerly, the highpoint was accepted as the berm around the reservoir at Fort Reno, but this was man-made build-up.

Jean Trousdale told me yesterday that Jack's ashes have finally made it to the top of Mount Everest! He has therefore done the Grand Slam: the highest peak on each of the seven continents, plus the North Pole and South Pole. Unfortunately, summit conditions apparently did not allow for pictures, but Jack is now there, as well on the neighboring peak, Lhotse.

I suggested to Jean that she publish a list of all the places where jack has been, so that travelers to other parts of the world can take Jack to where he hasn't been (yet). Maybe a list on the Highpointers Club website or the newsletter? Way to go Jack; I bet you never expected to be such a world traveler! Has Jack gone into space yet??? Just askin'. See ya! JES

Big article in today's Tempo section, written by Patrick Reardon who's covered highpointing in past pieces. He provides up to date information, covers FAQs, and mentions the recent demise of member James Nasti.

Most highpointing articles are light news (puff pieces, I think they call them). This big article on someone with 13 is the puffiest I've seen.

......Nothing less then a full length movie following the book if in fact he ever complets the remaining 37 states.
