Since the AMC requires a list of the last years worth of hikes when ever I sign up for a hike I decided yesterday to put together a list of what I have done this year. LAME for the most part, not too many impressive hikes by anymeans. But maybe this next year. I think my biggest obstical was the thought of paying $50 plus dollars in gas to drive up for a hike, I think some hikes I was suppose to do I didn’t because of this, hence why I need to move up north, as you can see I am at Wachusett and Monadnock the most only because of proximity.
I want to be able to hike more in 2012, and maybe get more of the 4000er’s complete, why not right…
