Mostly I just want to get mysefl and my sons out into the mountains.
I have been trying to complete the Maine and NH portions of the AT. I've got a lot of NH, and all but 25 miles or so of the Maine AT. Part of the challenge will be luring my kids away from the temptations of city life. My 15 y/o has done about 300 miles of the AT with me.
The precise goals aren't that important. If I can get one long 10 - 15 day trek and 1/2 dozen weekends out before September comes, I'll be satisfied.
