There is part of me that can see the appeal nowadays. I wasn't even bothered about logging hills, when i was younger and didn't see the need to queue up to touch the Trig/take a photo to prove that i had summitted.
Maybe it's just an age thing, the need to set a challenge, to prove to myself that i can still do this or that!?! Saying that, I still don't have any desire to bag a summit, for no other reason than to tick a list. That might change if i was close to completing the list, I suppose..
