We’re a couple. We climb things. Maybe you climb things too. Ask us questions, give us tips. Help us out, and hopefully we can help you, too. We are far from experts, but we love hiking. We are currently based in Rhode Island. Our main goal is to hike as many of New Hampshire’s 48 4,000-footers in the spring and summer months of 2012. So stalk our blog! It’s cool—we accept you.

“The bizarre trend in mountaineers is not the risk they take, but the large degree to which they value life. They are not crazy because they don’t dare, they’re crazy because they do. These people tend to enjoy life to the fullest, laugh the hardest, travel the most, and work the least.”

    Just stumbled across your site while poking around the trailsnh.com 4,000 footer website. Great goal! I’m doing the same thing, up to 7 so far. I just did Jackson, Pierce, and Eisenhower yesterday. It was awesome. It just gets better and better!

      Hey Steve, thanks for the comment! We were actually thinking about hiking Pierce last weekend, as well but we were scared off by the possibility of t-storms in the area (we are both really jealous of you now that we know it was so nice out).
      Sounds like you’re having as much fun as we are with the 48 and good luck to you!
      Happy hiking!

    Hi! Just discovered this also looking at 4,000 footer sites! I am almost 60 and hiking these with friends and my 28 year old daughter!! Have done 18 so far while adding Willey tomorrow with my daughter, Kehley!! My goal is to reach the half way point by the end of the year! I will hopefully try my first hut later this month to do Zealand!! Very addicting and wonderful!

      Hi, Elaine! Sounds like you’re having an awesome adventure so far! We’ve found that sharing the experience with friends and family is one of the best parts about this journey, so it’s great that you’re hiking with people you care about. The huts are so cool! We haven’t had a chance to stay in one yet, but we’ve stumbled across a few on our hikes, and we’re both jealous you get to stay at Zealand! Good luck with your goal, and keep us updated (maybe you should start a blog, too)!

    We are a MUCH older couple – 56 & 69 !!! who have been climbing the heck out of Colorado this summer. In fact, we’re headed to Denver tomorrow to climb Gray’s Peak, my first 14,000 footer. I landed on your blog, btw, because I’m searching for an alternative to a back hydration pack. I hate having anything on my back while I hike. Keep up the great work, and enjoy those hikes!

      Wow, what a great adventure! I can definitely speak for both myself and Colin (he’s in Africa right now!) when I say that we would totally love to be hiking in Colorado when we’re older. Heck, we’d want to hike in Colorado now! We’re both loyal hydration backpack users, so we’re probably not much help, but I’m sure there are alternative options out there. Good luck with your hike tomorrow, and thanks for commenting! 🙂

      Happy Hiking!
      Katie and Colin
