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 have done the 48 at least twice..some three or four times. I like the Bonds and Franconia Ridge best. Biggest challenge was Zealand and the Bonds from Zealand hut and back in the winter with the Presidential Traverse in one day a close second.

What are your hiking goals?

Finish the winter 48 this year and chip away at the peaks in NY to complete the NE115.

Do you hike all seasons?


What hikes would you like to see posted?

Don't mind doiing any of the 4,000 footers to slowly add to my Grid peaks.

Are you interested in leading your own hikes or events?



Just finished my 100 highest two weeks thinking about the New York peaks for the NE115. Remain interested in doing the Grid and also Winter 67 or Winter 100...gonna finish my Winter 48 this year.
