A Few Words: I like mountains. Short ones, tall ones, steep or gentle. I started hiking when I visited NH in 1993 and since 2007 my trips to the mountains went from being three hour jaunts up Monadnock to multi week cross country trips to hit various ranges. I'm not into rock climbing much, although I have gotten some jollies off of things I would have considered entirely off limits even a few years ago. My skill level is low so I'm fairly conservative in what I try to do. While descending the deserted rock chute on the way down King's Peak I became a firm believer that you haven't lived until you stand on a rock the size of a small refrigerator that decides it wants to slide downslope thirty feet with you on top of it. I sign climber's logs for summits I had to sweat for, not walk 200 feet from a parking lot. I can give advice on anything in NH and my business allows me considerable time off, so I do get around a bit. If I lived in Colorado I wouldn't come out of the mountains in summer except to work and buy groceries. I like lists but I'm not big on any list in particular. Ultras (I've done a few), the Northeast 115 (77 now), Adirondack 4000's (I still have plenty left), state high points (41 of them), Catskill 3500's (I have 5 left), the NH 4000's (COMPLETE), Colorado 14's (only done twenty), Southern Sixers (I have no idea); they're all good. I prefer visiting different areas rather than concentrating on one state or region because I like variety but sometimes all I have time for is the Whites, which is fine. Apart from that I am middle aged, fat, slow, and ex Army infantry with the attitude to match but I don't take anything too seriously. The few mountains I have climbed that lack a summitpost web page so far have been Lookout Mtn in New Mexico, Pico in Vermont, Doubletop, Sherrill, North Dome, Fir, and Vly in the Cats, and Williams in Massachusetts. Mountains I have seen from a distance that are on my to do list are Telescope and Shasta in California, Charleston in Nevada, Rainier and Adams in Washington, Hood in Oregon, Colden in NY, and Cloud Peak in Wyoming. I want a second try at Granite in Montana and Kit Carson in Colorado. If I had to name a range I wanted to spend more time in it would have to be the Beartooth. My favorite range in Colorado is definitely the Sangres.
