Sipping on an anchorsteam and watching my copy of Thrillhead Creation's Schralptown (great movie, btw) last night, and what do you know? I see the following link this afternoon from Mountainproject.com:
Some credit should go to Sean Crossen I think is his name, for the 1st attempt of skiing all 14ers in one season. I love the idea of homegrown adventure. I would like to get a group of splitters together to put down some first snowboard descents of 13 footers in the Uintahs, a remote range near the Wyoming boarder and home to Utah's highest peak. Or one summer try to hike and ride all those beautiful volcanoes you PNW guys have up there, which I never realized until I read snosluts TR those volcanoes are all so close, maybe I'll ride my bike in between. So many possibilities for homegrown fun.

It's great that Davenport succeeded.
With all this talk of lofty, all-encompassing goals, I am reminded of a "record" Dave Alden told me about a few years back:
"Forty-two days riding so far this season without crossing another track."
Sounds like a good goal to me!
