    Default 48 By the numbers

    48 = NH 4Ks climbed
    1 = Number of people on each hike (hiked solo for all 48)
    5 = Peaks hiked without seeing any other hikers
    233 = Miles hiked on trail
    251.25 = Miles hiked total including roads (Zealand, Sawyer River, etc)
    69,829 = Overall elevation gain in feet
    84,563 = Total elevation gain in feet
    2 years 10 months 3 days = Total time from first peak until last peak
    39 = Number of peaks hiked in the last 12 months
    -13 = Lowest temperature observed
    1 = Number of injuries (sprained finger in brook crossing fall)

    It was interesting seeing the numbers for total mileage and elevation gain add up. The number that surprised me the most though was how many peaks I hit in the last 12 months. Last fall/winter, I thought it would be good if I could finish in under 3 years. At one point while working through the list, I thought it would be fun to try to hike all the peaks in a single year. Little did I realize just how close I would come to doing that without even trying. I didn't even notice that number until sometime this spring. I guess it won't be that much harder to hike them all in one year at some point.
