Bissel's Mound - Summit Cheeseburger Project on 04/02/2009 12:53:00 MDT Print View

The Summit Cheeseburger Project was started to encourage, enable, and document the consumption of a cheeseburger on every summit on earth.

I first took upon myself the challenge of contributing to this noble cause last summer with my summit of Electric Peak in Yellowstone National Park.

Recently I was visiting my newborn niece in Minnesota and grabbed a couple friends to introduce them to the cause. Our trip report can be viewed here:

Problem solved. I was just griping about the lack of variety I take for lunches when I hike. I stumbled into the Summit Cheeseburger Project thanks to your post. I'm excited to see that I still have a chance to document a peak in South Carolina! I'm thinking a black bean burger with horseradish mustard and pepper jack cheese... I can almost taste it!

Thanks - very cool link.

I look forward to seeing more BPL'ers doing cheeseburger summits. Chris Wallace also tells me he's going to do something in Georgia - you hear me Chris? I'm holding you to it now!

It's such a funny concept and for that I love it. We get so serious about extreme expeditions and what not that it's fun to cart along something totally silly like a cheeseburger and just have fun with a climb.

That might have been the craziest trip report I have ever read. Full narrative, lots of alcohol and flat, flat, Minnesota.

D*MM, Sam!. This is twice in one week I missed a chance for a great reply to BPL humor!

My first thought on seeing your new avatar was "Is that a slider in Sam's mouth? ... naw, no way he could get a slider in Bozeman" But it was!

Can't say I've ever had one with cheese though. I dearly love cheese but Real Hikers (TM) eat their sliders straight up! And only when they have a good supply of shop towels (regardless of Clelland's advice:-)

I wonder if Sarbar could come up with a recipe for a Freezer Bag slider ... Hikers Heaven!

Oh, while I'm no beer snob, I gotta ask ... Miller? With a Leinies in the fridge?

Very noble cause. :)

This reminds me of the "Pocket Burger" a buddy of mind introduced me to during our last ski trip. It's just like a regular burger, only it is served fresh from the pocket, mid-lift, during the latter part of a ski trip.

I expect to hear Summit Cheeseburger reports from all of you this summer - and yes, Johan you can definitely do a veggie-burger!

The narrative was written by my best friend, Jon because he has the best memory for remembering precise details about things like ninja monkies and such.

Jim, I have no idea if I can get White Castle in Bozeman - I've never tried. But when I was at Len's Family Foods in my hometown of Stillwater, MN at 11:00pm on a Friday night planning for our "Great Adventure" it was the first package of frozen cheeseburgers I saw ; )

And to The beer afficianados out there I say, yes, my friends and I have an affinity for beer - good, bad, mediocre, quality, warm, cold, etc, etc, etc - we like it all!
