Okay, so now that I've got your attention, I've got what I think is a pretty kick-ass idea for a long term goal for Dan: climb Mount Whitney. For those of you who don't know, Mount Whitney is the tallest peak in the continental United States. It is a non-technical class 3 summit, meaning that it doesn't require any technical mountaineering experience.
That said, it is still a very difficult peak, and would require a lot of training on Dan's part. This would be great for viewers, because we would get to hear all about his various training woes, and then we would get to summit the mountain with him at the end (virtually, of course). Not to mention, it would be an amazing experience for him as well.
