Skilled but slower paced hiker. 8 mile 2500 ft elevation gain is about my comfort effort for a day hike. Mostly NH. At age 61, I take more breaks, hike slower than "AMC Book Time", but can take the distances in favorable conditions. I'd love to hike more, but my schedule limits me.
my first hike. I was falling to my knees I was so tired. I was having so much fun, I was back the next week for more. Greatest experience: 5000ft summits and I always I forget how hard it is to get up there.
All season hiker, love winter . Not crazy about rainy hikes- Gear: MSR snowshoes, short and full crampons, overnight camping gear. xskis, All weather clothing layers and more. This 59 year old body that hikes slower than I wish. Respect your limitations and enjoy the hike!
To have a good time and live to be 100! Talus is usually a dirty word for me. Enjoy the day and share it. I got my NH 48 summit patch 2009. I'm very pleased with that. I enjoy a big hike, but I respect the mountains and will wait for fair weather conditions -If you can walk, your hiking.
Sundays. I work 5-6 days a week,- some schedule! So hike days I take my time and enjoy the day. Local afternoon hikes are nice too on Mt Ascutney- give me a call It's nice to get away for an overnight camp out too.
Every climb is a challenge, summit vistas are priceless. Think positive! my NH[masked]ft list is finished mixed summer and winter. I love a good hike, a little bit of a challenge & good conversation. Favorite hikes: Windy Mt Washington & Bondcliff
