    Default Hi! We're new here!

    Hello,
    We're new to this forum! We joined after being asked if we were members by about a dozen people during the Seek-the-Peak event last weekend! So here we are!

    We live in Ashland, NH. We moved here about two years ago from Wilmington, Delaware. We have a quiet little house on a quiet little hill. Very different from our former life, and we love it.

    We would like to say hi to the folks that we met this weekend: Rudabaga, BlueDog, Chewy, Brad and DoNotGoGentle. We had a great time on the trail and at the after-party!

    We hike virtually every weekend. We are actively working on the NH48 and the ADK46 lists. Not because we like checkmarks (which we *may* ), but because it really challenges us to try hikes that I, Val, would have otherwise dismissed as too long, too high, too steep, etc. We still do non-checkmark-mountains all the time like Chocorua, Squam Range, etc.

    We have a web site where we track our NH hikes. It's http://www.barkeater.ws/NH48/

    It's a little behind right now due to the fact that the weather's been so great - no time to write about it while we're DOING it!! We'll get it up to date this week.

    Thanks again to everyone who made Seek-the-Peak so fun!
    Sincerely,
    Tim&Val

    Default It really is friendly!

    This really is the most friendly forum - both on the trail and on the computer! Brad, I can't believe you're checking your mail on the garden state parkway. We spent way too much time on that and the NJ turnpike when we lived in Delaware. Thanks to everyone for making us feel welcome! Sincerely, Tim & Valerie

    It gets harder and harder to leave each time.
