I have been hiking all my life but mostly only 1 day hikes; started backpacking two years ago; loving it... I have completed NH48, NE67, North-South Trail (RI), Midstate Trail (MA) in winter, Wapack Trail (NH), Belknap Range (NH), and the 52WAV list. I am Wilderness First Aid certified. My fave is the Pemiloop-in-a-day--no contest.
long all-day hikes; or shorter hikes with workout challenges (e.g. time limits, exercises along the way,...); recently, I am mostly enjoying trail runs with a light backpack (to pack everything for an emergency but nothing extra)
Simply enjoy the outdoors and get to know new areas in the region I live in and elsewhere. Of course, 'lists' are always helpful guiding me to new areas I have not been to, so I also want to complete some of those. Continue to improve on my Pemiloop times :)
1st Pemi Loop in a day--mileage, heat, humidity
Love hiking, trail running, kayaking and canoeing--enjoying the outdoors.
