What is your experience with the NH 4000-footers: How many have you hiked, which have been your favorites, what were your biggest challenges?

I'm a pretty avid hiker, starting in college, then taking a break for about 12 years while raising a family. I've hiked 44 of the 48 NH 4Ks, plus Katahdin.

What are your hiking goals?

I'll be completing the NH 48 in a few weeks with a Bonds traverse. I'll probably continue with the other lists (NH 52 with a view, NE 67, 100, etc.) I'm looking forward to not being "tied down" to the 48 list!

Do you hike all seasons?

Yes - just started winter hiking last season, and have six down so far. Fall is my favorite by far.

What hikes would you like to see posted?

Pretty much any - I'm especially open to the less-traveled trails.

Are you interested in leading your own hikes or events?

I am - I've led a number of hikes with friends and co-workers, informally. I'd like to take a map and compass course and formalize my training a little. An occasional social event would be great, too.

Introduction

I'm a life-long NH native and currently live in New Boston, NH. Been an AMC member for about 20 years, save a few while we had to cut back.
