    Default New here

    Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and wanted to say hi. I love to hike and take long backpacking trips in the Whites. I am almost done with the NH 48. Even though I live in Ma, I feel I should be living in NH. I have only done 3 season hiking but really want to start doing some winter hikes and trips. I know I am more than capable, I just need someone willing to go with me. My goal this winter was to get to the MW summit but it just doesn't seem to want to happen. I don't have the money to do a guided trip this year and some of the other hiking groups going to the summit will only allow experienced winter hikers. Hopefully next year.

    Girl, welcome to the group! Maybe you will find a partner for your summit attempt here on the forum.

    Welcome aboard. When you wish you were living closer to the mtns, just think of poor Steve stranded way down in Florida.

    Hiya, Welcome (I'm kinda a newbe here too)
    But I do hike in the winter a bit, and my friend and I are going this weekend for an overnight, He's picking (its his birthday) but we plan on more this winter and I would like to try to get to Acadia this year too. Been there years ago and loved it, even after i fell through the ice
    do you have all the gear, if you do then you dont need a guide, you just need some one to go with!

    Nothing is impossible, its just a matter of how difficult!

    Welcome from VT. Winter Camping is great. I hope you get a chance to make a winter summit. I been to the summit 5 times over the last 3 years. This October and November were both sub 0 wind chill above tree line and it was great. We are planning another trip for Feb. I am very pumped and can't wait. Enjoy and be safe.
