With what I chose for a screen name I BETTER do all 46. I felt a little guilty picking the name before completing the 46 but unless I'm stricken with an injury or illness nothing else is going to stop me and I wanted to grab the name before someone else might think of it.

It all started with my wife and I (her uncle completed the 46 in the 50s). Angie and I started out great but then we decided to start a family. Wanting to still hike but not wanting to go on ahead of her on the list I did two seasons of do-overs. That was getting old, never seeing my numbers increase. I hope with all my hearth that my wife decides to get back in to it with me, I very much enjoy our time together in the high peaks but she just is not as in to it as I am right now and at the same time I realy want my patch so she just recently gave me the OK to finish them without her. Now I am trying to make for lost time. I'm at 32 but don't plan on sitting at any one number for any length of time. I love my little son but having a family certainly changes things. In a few years I can get him started and I hope to do all 46 all over again with him by my side.

As I mentioned above about hopefully not sitting at any one number too long. I got out and did three more this past weekend, now at 35.

Tied me already. I suppose you'll be passing me before I hit the trails again next summer?

McNaughton

I climbed McNaughton, and really liked that climb last winter. Is that so wrong?

The poll was somehow changed from a 'public' to a 'private' poll, and I am told that, as such, it can no longer can be altered, even by administrators. Sorry.

Hiking Partners/Groups

Can someone tell me what the best method/forum would be to find other people or small groups who might want to do some high peak hikes (beginner/intermediate). Interested in mid week hikes mostly, maybe some weekends. thanks!

I don't think that you will have a problem with someone taking your user name-- I have never seen adirondack spelled with a b before.

I'm having such a great time! I've got such strong hiking momentum now, that I'm afraid to do anything else on my days off! Hoping to have 23-26 done by my Bday later this July. Also hoping for a Haystack finish before winter. Yeah, I'm motivated!!!

:-)

I bet she wants to finish before winter so she can start afresh on the 46-W.

Actually, she could squeeze in a fall round of the 46 just to maintain her fitness level. Let's see...13 weekends, 46 peaks. The math is beautifully simple. Go unadogger!

Head,

We should try to get together for a sled hike this winter. I've been doing sled descents for some time, and while I don't aspire to sled down all of the 46 peaks, I have compiled a short list of my favorite sled descents. Big Slide was one of my favorites. I've also gone down Nippletop (quite good from the summit to Elk Pass), Giant, Phelps, Sawteeth, and a few others I think.

Although they're not among the 46 (or even close for that matter), Hadley & Prospect are two of my favorite sled descents. I live in South Glens Falls so these are short drives, another big plus. Hadley is a great beginner sled hike and you can go a solid mile without having to get out of your sled. This is good to know in case you are trying to recruit others to your cause. Prospect is one of the best sled runs of all time (in my opinion anyway), continuously steep with some good turns thrown in here and there. The other nice thing about these two hikes is that you get a good sled time to hike time ration (unlike Allen for example).

I'm slowly building up my skills for a sled down the Trap Dike if you're game.

John

PS The Trap Dike was a joke, just in case the drunk smiley didn't give it away.

So when I was maybe about 10 years old (I'm 23 now) my father and I went to Grace Hudowalski's house and registered the peaks we had climbed. I haven't really kept up to date with it since, how do I update the 46er club and does anyone know if they would have kept my records on file?

The best thing to do is write in and mention it. Not sure if they would or not. Address the letter just to the Office of the historian and explain the situation. If they don't have the record and if you can recall the peaks you climbed and a rough date then that would be good. At the end of the day it works on the honor system. The exact times and dates and aren't necessary.

I have 18 peaks so far. Since I live Switzerland I don't really have too many opportunities to go hiking in the High Peaks. However, in June I will return to the Adirondacks and hopefully I will be able to do at least 6 more. I'm really looking forward to this.

I climbed several back in the 80's , haven't added any since then though. I've been up up Marcy several times with various friends that wanted tohike up the NY high point though. Favorite trip up marcy was with my son when he was 6 years old. Now 15 he has reached the high points in 12 states in the northeast (if WV, PA & MD are NE). Anyway , we recently bought a place in the Adirondacks and my son wants to do more climbing up there so we'll be adding more peaks in the next couple of years. I think completing the 46 will be a goal in a few years when my wife and I retire up north and have easy access to the high peaks.
