DangerGirl Joins the Team

Back in March we introduced a new Redline Guide, Ryan Welts, when he joined the team. In passing we mentioned his wife, Kristina Folcik, was also an accomplished athlete. Little did we know at the time that a little while later Kristina would hope to join forces with Redline Guiding herself excited by the prospect of working together. We have welcomed her with open arms, obviously. […]

Battling Nancy

In a very recent blog post we mentioned that we will gladly guide folks to myriad places… including the New England Hundred Highest peaks. That’s what Redline Guide Ken Hodges was doing just yesterday. Ken was leading a custom tour for a gentleman from Maine, Bob, who is working on that list. Specifically, Redline Guiding is helping him with the trailess summits on that list — […]

Redline Guides Gone Wild

Do you know what’s cool about guiding? We love what we do. Inasmuch that when we’re not working, we still hike and recreate in the great outdoors. This differs from many jobs where one avoids the whole scene unless being forced to go to work. Our guides want to hike! And not just hike — they crush! Let’s take a small glimpse into this season. There […]

Another Guide Makes the Grade

Congratulations to Redline Guiding Mountain Guide Ryan Welts for completing his schooling and earning his Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification. Since protecting our guests and others we may lead by being ready to meet their basic emergency medical needs in the mountains is critically important (and a requirement before leading), we are extremely pleased to be able to make this announcement. The schooling is tough but […]

Wet Knots Never Untie

Way back in December of 2016 a plan for an outdoor wedding atop Cathedral Ledge was formed. We were officiating the nuptials — owner Mike Cherim is a JP — and providing photographic services. This was to include an early morning, heavily alpenglowy pre-wedding shoot at the ledge, a friends and family preparation series in the early afternoon in their rentals at the lovely Nordic Village, […]

How to Make a Tick Trap

In a previous life, long before Redline Guiding, owner Mike Cherim owned and operated a national commercial mailorder company he founded in 1992, that went by the brand name Green Methods (long sold, though still exists, now owned by another firm). Green Methods sold good bugs that ate (or parasitized) bad bugs — to be used for pest control purposes, instead of nasty pesticides. This gave […]
