STATS MISC

The quick lowdown: NH native, love my state, I used to hike a lot in the 80's, then sporadically in NH and then in AZ when I lived there for 9 years. Finally decided I was going to get back to the Whites and do I what I missed so much.

I made one simple goal. Hike all 176 of the 3000 foot peaks in New Hampshire (with >200 ft. cols), and to see as much as I can while doing it. Outlooks, ponds, cascades, slides, anything that looks interesting. The 3k list brings you to a lot of places not normally covered in the other lists, mainly the North Country, but it also involves a lot of off-trail hiking (as do many of the features I'd like to see). I've grown to love bushwhacking, so all my goals were completed. I finished this list in 2013, and I hope to go back to all the interesting tids and bits that I missed, and the peaks that I really enjoyed. See new trails, find old logging camps, and so much more. You'll note I track some other lists. I can't believe I'll ever actively pursue another list again, but I certainly have peaks on those lists I want to go to. If I get close to finishing, I'll probably go ahead, but if I don't, no big deal.

I don't know if I can add anything to some already great sites out there already, but I hope I may be able to provide another person's outlook that some might find interesting or amusing. It ain't fancy, it ain't pretty, but it's easy to navigate (one hopes). Both the lists and log have links to individual trip reports. The early (80's) reports aren't very detailed, just some notes I scribbled in my paper log. The latter ones are just plain too lengthy :)

There's also a Misc. section that contains various schtuff that's interesting. To me, in any case...

Added in my 2016 and 2017 hikes. Finally. Sheesh.
