At 52, I make it up the Northway from Connecticut once a year and have bagged 15 high peaks since 1998. I had a knee replacement in 2001 which slowed me up. With a lot of rehab it has come around in the past year. Just completed a backpack on the Ridge Trail to Giant over Memorial Day weekend.

My Eagle Scout son encouraged me to hike and we completed two scouting treks in the Adirondacks. I"ve been hooked ever since.

I'm a former prosecutor and now a Superior Court Judge. In that life I gained a lot of weight. Seven years ago the scale hit 275. Thats when I started hiking. I'm down to 220 and counting (and all the vital signs are good again). Walking not only gets me to the great views, it helps me to live.
