Which aspects of mountaineering and backcountry sports are of most interest to you? -- (Hiking) (Backcountry Skiing) (Ice Climbing) (Rock Climbing) (Backpacking & Camping) ?

Hiking. Backpacking.

What is your level of mountaineering experience or other backcountry skills? -- (Novice) (Beginner) (Intermediate) (Advanced) (Pro)? (Feel free to add some specifics):

Get out and hike 4-6 times a month all year long. Would consider myself advanced.

What is your greatest achievement in the the mountains as of today?

Have finished a bunch of different "lists" (NH48, NE67, ADK46, and NE115).

What is you "next" greatest goal? Touch some summit? Backpack a trail?

The next "list" to be finished will likely be the New England Hundred Highest (4 left) and the New England 67 in winter (13 left). Will also be starting the Adirondack 46 in winter this year and have been chipping away at the Catskills 35 for a couple of years (28 left).

What was your most epic, trip that gives you the cold sweats in the middle of the night?

A winter trip to Madison and Adams. Had a dream the night before I was going to slide off of a mountain and die. On the ascent of the snowfields below Adams from the King Ravine side I got overwhelmed with the felling of this is my dream coming to life - frozen in my tracks. Had to turn back.


I am a four-season hiker that organizes hikes and backpacks for the Random Group of Hikers and the AMC.
