4000 Footer Club

I think I have been bitten.
I will admit I love a goal and this is a big one. We all know how well I do with long term projects but this is definitely going to be long. I joined a 4000 footer group on Facebook and that just escalated it to the "Oh yeah, We are doin' it!" stage. Every post makes me want to hike that hike. I am excited for Fall but also a little anxious. I just need to get my Fall legs back. Clothing, sleeping and safety planning changes. I did a good amount of hiking last Fall so I just need to get back to that.
One of the things that helped is that there is no end date-No deadline. A man posted the other day about his first summit being 8 years ago. I am hoping I can be done by then but who knows. There are a few loops that can bag multiple peaks. Summer 2017 anyone?
So today I accept the challenge to hike the 48 4,000 footers of the White Mountains. Click that link to see what they are all about.
So far I have 3 and I am tackling 4 in a month with Moosilauke. Stay tuned because I will keep you in the loop and on the Summit with me for sure.
