Adirondack 46ers

Peaceful Weekend

July 18, 2010

The last five days passed like a dream.  I was really hoping for some kind of spiritual experience or battery recharge or something when I headed off to the woods last Wednesday.  And I got it.  Well, I got something.  Not entirely what I thought it would be, but something nonetheless. I’ve been looking forward […]

Gone Hikin’

July 13, 2010

Ok, I’m gone until Sunday.  I’m headed up to the Adirondacks Wednesday morning; I should get there early afternoon.  The plan is to park at Upper Works (a smidge to the east of Henderson Lake) and hike the 5-ish miles in to a lean-to at Flowed Lands (between Lake Colden and Livingston Pond.  If I […]

SoloJoe’s Mammoth Range Traverse

May 17, 2010

Ok, so work is wicked busy and I’m exhausted.  I need to take my ass to bed.  I’ve been meaning to put together a post about SoloJoe’s traverse of the Great Range in the Adirondacks this past Thursday, but just haven’t done so.  Joe called me before he headed out, but I didn’t get a […]

Full TR From Saturday’s Hike

April 29, 2010

If you’ve jumped to this page from my recent trip report at the ADK High Peaks Forum, I’m sorry to say that this post doesn’t contain anything you haven’t read before (except what you’re reading right now).  Swing your eyes to the right, though, and you’ll see “Recent Posts” – maybe you’ll find something in […]

Good Times, Bad Times

April 27, 2010

They’re all good times.  Life is good, dear reader – even when things ain’t what I’d like them to be.  My scratched cornea from that hike a couple of months ago somehow got re-opened this past weekend.  I took the day off from work on Monday and went in around 4PM on Tuesday.  It was […]

Weekend Plans

April 5, 2010

I’m not sure if this is good or not:  it’s Monday evening and my weekend is booking out pretty quickly.  I think I’m going to make an appointment with myself on Sunday to do “not a damned thing.”  Better pencil that in to the ole Outlook.  Or MobileMe.  Or whatever.  Just try not to forget, […]

Saturday’s Hike: Recap

October 27, 2009

On Friday night I mentioned that Saturday’s hike would probably be a short one.  It wasn’t.  Here’s the story: Let me begin with a digression, though: All that stuff I talked about last week in my Inventory & Priorities posts – the things I’m looking to get out of moving toward my goals (emotionally, spiritually; […]

Today’s Hike: Esther and Whiteface

October 23, 2009

Well, I’m here.  At the Starbucks in Lake Placid NY.  I’m “checked in” at the hostel – which means I’ve picked up my key from the mailbox and claimed a bunk by putting my bag on it – and I’ve had dinner.  So what’s left to do except write to you, dear reader? My mind […]

Saturday’s Hike 10-24-2009

October 23, 2009

Saturday morning I’ll be hiking Whiteface and Esther Mountains in the Adirondacks.  They’ll be numbers 3 and 4 of 46 for my Adirondack 46ers patch. View Larger Map I wasn’t kidding when I put those last few posts together.  I’m getting a move-on.  It’s now 11:44 in the post meridian on Thursday night, and I’m […]

Inventory & List of Priorities (3,4)

October 21, 2009

The wrecking is complete, please continue the checking: So I think that in my last post I basically covered numbers three and four of my prioritization process, but for the sakes of continuity, repetition and closure, I’ll cover them once more: 3.  After that, I’m going to put those groups into an order of priority […]
