Mt. Katahdin is 14 hours away, which is more than what I would wish to drive ... but maybe in the winter it would be worth the drive. (Though they don't allow soloists in the winter. Pft!)

“On-trail or off?”
Either. I’m bored with following trails. Especially if I’m lucky enough to get pristine weather conditions there’s just no challenge. And if there is no challenge then what’s the point?
I should probably look to off trail. Hmmm. But I don’t entirely get how to know which rocks are climbable. Are all rocks fair game? How do I know which are rotten versus stable enough if the mighty government official does not tell me? I've done that before, I got myself up on a ridge and wanted to follow it up to the summit of some peak in France only to trigger rock avalanches (minor) as soon as I dug my ice axe into it.
