    That was awesome KDT. I plan on doing alot more hiking in 2009 as I hope to get up north at least every other weekend. I also had lost over 40 pounds watching what I ate with the help of my wife and walking a minimum of 5 miles every night after dinner sometimes more when I got into the zone. But of course for one reason or another I stopped walking every now and then and then completely and all of a sudden I don't know where it came from but 20 pounds came back . I have made a plan to start on Jan. 1st going back to all my old routines and I hope to loss the 20 pounds plus some more by spring.

    Kevin, your goals make anything else that any of us could say sound a bit hollow. As Patrad said - Amen, indeed Amen.

    Keep close to Nature's heart...
    and break clear away, once in awhile,
    and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
    Wash your spirit clean. - John Muir

    Thanks, FisherCat, I had left out something very important!

    The week after Alex and I finish the NH 48, we will volunteer for trailwork and make that a regular part of our year from there on out.

    Wow - this is an ambitious crowd! For me, I'd like to

    - Complete at least fifteen more ADK 46rs, putting me halfway through
    - Hike in NH and Maine
    - Lose 20 pounds
    - Visit one National Park this year (did Yosemite last year)
    - Improve my xcountry skiing

    That should keep me busy enough!

    Happy New Year everyone.

    Scott

    If you don't have alot of time to head out west, go to Acadia National Park in Maine.

    It's definitely on the list for '09...trying to put together a one week vacation in Maine, and Acadia is high on that list. Any specific recommendations in Acadia?
