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 made 2 winter-weather attempts to summit Mt. Washington with weather preventing summits both times. Mt. Carrigain via Desolation route. Mt. Pierce The Bonds Most experience above treeline is in Colorado My biggest challenge right now is my job schedule. It is very unforgiving and my legs feel like jello from sitting at a desk. Not the way to live, man. Trying to change that.

What are your hiking goals?

Meet great people Hike all NH 4K footers Hike all CO 14K footers Ultimate Goal: Train for and climb Denali

Do you hike all seasons?


What hikes would you like to see posted?

As long as the trail is not flat, I am interested. If there are snowy, icy, cold conditions involved I am even more interested :-)

Are you interested in leading your own hikes or events?



I am a hiker who took a desk job and needs to get back to doing what fuels my soul. I love peak bagging, have aspirations to tackle all NH 4k's and one day go back to continuing my CO 14k list. Also, looking to meet some great people!
