On it now. Stafford's crap for this, so I'm working on a trip to somewhere a bit more epic...

Dammit, I need to go back to the suburbs. My family's home rests on the highest point in our town.

Town, nothing. Think big.

When and if I do this task, I'm doing it with the highest point in the state. (Which, by the way, is also the highest point in the US east of the Mississippi River.)

Well, it's ALMOST the highest point in the county. Only beaten out by a few feet or so : |

Cromer Cliffs methinks.

The highest point in Norfolk is Beacon Hill, south of West Runton, 103m/338ft (map reference TG 186413) – source: Ordnance Survey

From the Norfolk CC website. It's near Cromer Cliffs and part of them but not actually Cromer Cliffs.,1.253386&spn=0.033786,0.090981&t=h&z=14&msid=105562713554392813038.000457f4ae12947b2cdb2

Map of location. It's about a 1mi walk from the railway station.

It takes two hours by train and costs £11.20 for a return with 1 change in Norwich. So if we left on the 15:17 train we'd get back around 20:30.

Sounds good.

I need to shop for a new camera first though.

Oh... This will be fun. Unfortunately 4 padlocks, a bit of barbed wire and one hell of a climb are in my way!

Once again, my instinct first turns to messers Haberdash and Thwakenbush. I believe we should attempt to collaborate on this. WHAT SAY YOU?

I decided to go to the highest point in Portland. This turned out to be more complicated than I expected. First thing, it turns out that there's some disagreement about what building in Portland is the tallest. Some say it's the Wells Fargo tower, w...

The highest place, not of a house, tree, city or mountain. But the highest place of my district where I could possibly walk a line. When I saw a picture, not unlike the following, in a tourist folder, I knew I had to do it. Mørkgonga, Norway * "T...

Being a a bit lazy today, I decided to try and complete this task without leaving my apartment. This obviously meant I needed to take pictures of myself scaling the entertainment center.

Well here we are again... I read this task and instantly took it as more of a challenge than some of the others. You may (or may not) have noticed that I've nailed quite a few tasks this week - more than anything that was to get the ball rolling and...

So the highest point in ⴶⴹⵣØ (AgadezØ) is the Grand Mosque, at 27 meters tall: I climbed up the ridiculously cramped staircase to the top of the minaret, where one is afforded amazing views of the entire city. You can see the Sultan'...
