44 miles complete!

We are about to go to bed but I turned on my phone and saw very random little service in Maine’s 100-mile wilderness. Figured I’d let you all know we are doing great and have been hiking for 4 days now and are 44 miles in! Keep those thoughts and prayers coming because they have…

Part VI – CO-KS

We have started our trip back east. It’s a little earlier than we originally planned. We were going to do a ski-to-hut trip in the Colorado mountains with SILAdventure, DocDoc and their other friends. It has been planned for months. We would ski 5.8 miles uphill to a hut for New Year’s Eve and New…

Part II – PA & OH

We drove another 675 miles today. Our final destination was New Albany, Ohio, but we took the road less traveled, as usual. And we got the snow I’ve wanted … So, we seriously tried to travel down this “road” to get to the fire tower lookout for Mt. Davis, the highest point in PA. That…

TGIF

I checked the Life Less Ordinary blog the other day to see if that chick updated it and what a slacker, she hasn’t! After getting a harsh reprimand about the issue from her husband last night, she decided it was time. So what’s been going on guys? Last weekend was busy with J’s work events…

CT High Point

On our way home Sunday, J & I hiked to the highest point in CT, which is on the way up Mt. Frissell (in Mass) at a whopping 2,380 feet.This was a nice, short hike (3ish miles), but it was hotter than hell. This was our 10th high point. Sometimes finding the trailhead to the…

Welcome fall

J & I spent Saturday exploring Mt. Greylock State Reservation in Mass, which happens to be the location of the highest point in Massachusetts. You can drive up to the top got $2, or you can be cool like us and hike (and save $2). Bagged and tagged that peak. I was pleasantly surprised with…

Vacay to the … cornfields?

This past weekend served as one of our summer vacations. Yeah! But to the Midwest? That’s right. Roid and Peace’s wedding was in Louisville, KY, on Saturday, so J and I decided to make a trip out of it. I’ll try to keep my summary short and sweet. Wednesday – arrived in Columbus, OH, to…

6,288’

J and I had a near-death experience at about 6,000 feet Sunday. No kidding. Let me start from the beginning. The father of the Is/Was family (who will now be renamed Bolt) wanted to summit Mt. Washington, the highest mountain in NH and in the Northeast, during his trip (which *sadly* came to an end…
