  1. What a great Blog! It was so nice to meet you and your dad hiking last weekend. Best of luck with your remaining 16!

  2. Just wanted to say I’ve come across you two. As a matter of fact I think that my brother took the picture of you two at Bushnell Falls on your Haystack hike. Cheers!!!

    • Thank you! It was honestly such a great/fun/bonding experience, I couldn’t have done it without him πŸ™‚ I used to despise going hiking (all through those rebellious teenage years) but I rediscovered it, so there’s still hope for your kids! Drag them to the top of a mountain on a gorgeous day and I’m sure they’ll fall in love.

    • Thank you!!! πŸ™‚ You’re already halfway there! If this summer is nice, which it’s supposed to be :D. you might end up knocking them all off! Have you decided which mountain you’ll end on?

  3. Myself and my 13 year old daughter are following in your tracks. She did Cascade a few years back and was a bit intimidated. But we just knocked off Phelps Fri after Thanksgiving and she had a blast. So we may sneak one more in before the heavy weather. Thank you for doing such a great job tracking your adventures! She has also backpacked into flowed lands and has done some island camping via canoe.

    • Wow, that is awesome that she is so adventurous at 13!! Good luck & have fun!!! I love being able to share this with my dad and it has brought us even closer πŸ™‚
