    Brian,

    I am glad we didn't have to contend with weather, too, although it had rained the day before and so we were absolutely drenched after an hour. Your TR from 2010 - Savage Spruce on Teapot...

    If I heard a bull moose grunting and crashing up ahead, I doubt I would be issuing a cow moose call! You are gutsy or else a lot bigger than me!

    One Savage Peak 9-21-11

    Hufflepuff and I had heard some nasty reports about Savage Mt. and TR's from last May confirmed our fears. A chance meeting with Ethan on West Peak recently gave us some hope and encouragement. We...

    A momentous occasion and a major accomplishment. Brava and kudos!! I went up there on a rather overcast day and very wet. The old hut really looked sad in the gloom. I loved the photo of you and...

    A huge congratulations to you! Well done, and an inspiring TR! I was among that Ossipee group in November of 2008, and also enjoyed putting many faces to VFTT names that I had read about. I have...

    That is great advice and I whole heartedly agree. I carry a GPS for safety - to mark where I left my car and in case of injury to mark where the injured is - beyond that it is map and compass all...

    You are a SAINT! You've got to love the 'Rellies' - cuz you are stuck with them. Carrigain: the next sunny day - alone. . . . The mountain will wait; it has the patience of centuries, and...

    Audrey,

    That is really interesting: 15 years later the route, from the NE, is still pleasant enough, although I am sure a lot has changed. I climbed West Scar Ridge (the first time) from Little...

    Jazzbo,

    I summitted Deception from the Old Cherry Mtn Road. It was fairly routine although I made the mistake of heading up hill too soon, and climbed the west peak, which I didn't really care...

    I saw your entry with Carl from 2009, and he, Carl, was back again this year. Five groups have gone up this year. Carl is everywhere - simply amazing. That's a good peak to finish on. I still...

    What year was that, Audrey? These bushwacks seem to change monumentally from year to year! Dot and I were delighted that the 2500 route still was a good one.

    That is the only reason I can think of - but maybe there is a forester out there who knows of a better reason.

    I was sidelined for two full months, and I still have to treat it (the foot) with...

    Dartmouth Peak - 9/27/10

    I know that many hikers tackle a traverse of the Dartmouth/Deception ridge and pick up Millen along the way. But, I broke a bone in my foot in June, and it is just beginning to heal, so I have to...

    Likewise, Audrey, I am happy to say I have been there and done that. Despite the steep, slippery, treacherous slopes, any day in the mountains is a good day. I'm just happy that I can get out there...

    You are right on that one, Brian. We have been knocking down trails and bushwacks all over New England for seven years together, and she is not nearly ready to slow down, although she is well past...

    Huntingtons revisited 6/7/10

    Our bushwacking adventure could not compare with the weather and equipment excitement that NH and friends had on Savage and Spruce. But, we did have spruce and it was certainly wet!

    Serenity in the woods 1/19/10

    Serenity is a solo snow shoe hike in a snow storm. I really enjoy hiking by myself because I get to sort through all the issues and clutter in my mind, and then to clear it. Today I headed off to...

    The bare ice is great for skating and ice boating this year. But, be careful there are still some thin spots around Squam Lake.

    Grumpygran,

    You are an inspiration and a model to follow. Nine times the 48 - that is really incredible. Good for you and keep on hiking your hike.

    We made some good progress this year, but still have many miles to go. This list has some interesting peaks and really challenges my map and compass skills. But, they are very rewarding and fun!

    S. Hale 10/29/09

    My hiking friend, Hufflepuff, and I decided to try for one more of the NHHH before the weather required full winter gear. We planned to do a loop hike on the Zealand Trail, to Lend-a-Hand hitting...
