    Default intro from mom and daughter

    Greetings,

    I've been lurking for some time and have finally registered!

    My name is Trish, and my daughter Alex and I began our peakbagging adventures this summer. We've done four and will keep doing 2-4 a month until we've bagged them all. We're summer hikers, and we take a loooong time (Alex is 5), so this'll probably take a while! Despite her age, Alex is a very strong and enthusiastic hiker. I look forward to continuing to glean info from you nice folks, and perhaps we'll meet on the trails some day? If we do meet, Alex will surely chat you up for as long as you'll listen.

    (I carry a large pack full of emergency gear and appropriate clothing, and I pay careful attention to the weather. Just thought I'd put that out there since I'm hiking with a child).

    Happy hiking,
    Trish

    Default Awesome!

    Can never start 'em too young! Good luck and welcome to the forum! Ask whatever you want here, there are some very knowledgeable folks and if we don't have the answer we know where to get it.

    Welcome to you two. You will make lots of friends out here on the forum. You will find even more friends on the trails if the emergency gear includes fresh brownies and such.

    No, I only pack Powerbars. My mama paranoia is such that I don't want to pack anything aromatic that might attract bears. Yes, I know, a silly thing to worry about. However, since my kid's with me, I tend to overdo it on the what-if scenarios, lol.

    At least you do not have to worry about the moose and fox. ForestGnome has those under control. He tells them to come and sit. They do it. You should be fine.

    A big NH welcome to you both!
    Very exciting! I'll be watching for you on the trail.
    I'm the one reading a book while taking breaks.

    Smile always,

    Welcome! I think I saw you this past weekend. Did you go out on Sunday? We were past and talk to a very young girl and mother.
