Chesley Sullenberger was going to summit Whitney with his wife once and wisely turned around (they were close enough that a they could have made it, but they would have been too late getting down). So, not making it on your first try is not unusual.

A friend summitted San Jacinto this last week.

Yes, it was great. Brian and I were hiking in Belgium and Luxembourg, on trails that sometimes crossed into France or Germany as well.
It's fun to cross an international border marked by nothing more than a footbridge or cattle grid ("passage Canadien" in French)
- or, in one case, a polite sign simply asking us to shut the gate again after passing!

Vianden was freed from Nazi occupation on February 12, 1945 by the 6th US cavalry.
