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

All of them! I started with I was 10, though so I might need a refresher course. I guess the most challenging was Passaconnaway - totally not a challenging mountain but I failed once due to a low level of rations and somewhat comically poor map skills. Luckily, I have a voice of reason and know when to turn around. The second attempt was awesome weather until I was at the top- a bolt of lightening struck on the next peak and the sky opened on me in the form of the most impressive amount of rainfall I have ever seen in one afternoon.

What are your hiking goals?

bah... "goals"... I just want to be in this group because you guys don't mess around with the "easy" hikes. Heh. Long term, though - I'll probably achieve triple crowner status before my legs don't work anymore.

Do you hike all seasons?

Yeah! I don't have as much experience with winter backpacking (overnights) but I am intrigued. Anything to spice things up a bit and learn more about survival in cold conditions will help prepare me for the zombocalypse.

What hikes would you like to see posted?

Well, I haven't finished the 46 in the Adirondacks yet but I can guess that this group doesn't go that far very often. There is an amazing 2.5 day adventure bagging 4 spectacular peaks - most of which do not have maintained trails - I wouldn't mind doing. Here's the gist of it:

Are you interested in leading your own hikes or events?

Sure! (Do you need a car to do that?)
