Hiking this summer

Planning??

I've never been a big planner. Most of my trips are planned the night before I leave. A few of them I jumped into the car and decided on the drive up where I wanted to go, steering wheel in one hand, map in the other! Although I will probably be doing a bushwack of Owls Head and then some other mountains after that. I also want to see if I can do the whole Pemi loop in a day.

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.

Plans for May through ...

Planning I can do, getting there is hard. Hoping to get in a solo of Owl's Head, a trip over Bonds & Zealand with friends & spotting cars, maybe an overnight in High Peaks for early summer right after Solstice. In July a sunset trip up Bear or Everett & one up Monadnock. One day in Summer I'll do a Traverse of Franconia Ridge (maybe solo) & an early fall trip to Wildcats.

I'll also put some time in on Airline Trail in Colchester, Hebron area.
