    My 8 year old decided to hike all 48 NH footers in about a year

    Have been posting in the skiing forum but first time posting here.

    We hiked quite a lot before having kids. After kids turn 4, we started to hike with them in easier trails every year. After a few hikes this summer, my 8 year old son is hooked. He decided to hike all NH 4000 footers before he turn 10 year old in June 2021. The spring hiking condition in whites is not that great. So we will try to finish everything by the end of next year. Basically we have September/Mid-October plus 2020 to do this. We live in Boston area so most hiking will happen during the weekend.

    I am sure there are other kids have done this in the past. Anybody have any tips to share?

    Should I post trip reports following this thread or next door in the trip report forum?

    BTW, we made a video of our plan.
