    Good Luck!!

    Are you skipping any of the summits? Some of them are boring and might not be worth your while. Just saying.

    Note that Tim Seaver only has the record for the Cave Dog version of the NH 48, Cave Dog has a faster time for the AMC version (road-to-road). Will you try to beat that too?
