A Little About Me

I started hiking when I visited NH in 1993 and since 2007 my trips to the mountains went from being three hour jaunts up and down Monadnock to multi week cross country trips to hit various ranges for hiking and climbing. I'm not into Class 5 much, although I have gotten some jollies off of things I would have considered entirely off limits when I first started. My skill level is middling so I'm fairly conservative in what I try to do. I sign climber's logs for summits I had to sweat for, not amble over to from a parking lot. I can give advice on anything in New England 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 rarely focused on any list in particular. Lower 48 Ultras (24), Northeast 115 (95), Adirondack 4000's (26), state high points (43), Catskill 3500's (complete), Virginia 4000 footer list (?), New England 4000's (complete), Colorado 14's (25), New England Hundred Highest (88), New England Fifty Finest (37), Idaho 12s (3), and the Southern Sixers (complete). I prefer visiting different areas rather than concentrating on one state or region because I like variety. Apart from that I am middle aged, fat, slow, and ex Army infantry with the attitude to match.

The list of mountains I have climbed that lack a SP web page so far includes Lookout in New Mexico, Conical Peak in Montana, Doubletop, Sherrill, North Dome, Rocky, Balsam Cap, Friday, and Vly in New York, Fort and Coe in Maine, Pomfrey, Cole, Bald Knob 4060 in Virginia, Smarts, Hersey, Nottingham, Nancy, East Sleeper, Vose Spur, and Weeks in New Hampshire, Plott Balsam, Chapman, Sequoyah, Tricorner Knob, and Luftee Knob in North Carolina, Grass, East, Signal, Gore, and the Cold Hollow Mountain high point in Vermont, Baker Butte in Arizona, with Holyoke and Williams in Massachusetts.

Mountains I have seen from a distance that are on my to do list are Telescope and Shasta in California, Rainier and Adams in Washington, Hood in Oregon, and Colden in NY. My favorite range in Colorado is definitely the Sangres.

One of the strangest mountains I have ever hiked was Victoria in Hong Kong. You can't get to the true summit, but climbing uphill through shopping malls, on sidewalks, and past Buddhist temples was a novel experience.
