Continuing Wilderness Medicine

Our association with the SOLO School of Wilderness Medicine has gone very well. The feedback we’ve gotten on Facebook and elsewhere has been outstanding. Our students have been elated, to say the least. The vibe. The energy. The awesome subject matter taught by true professionals in a lively, engaging, and well-practiced manner. Our personal experiences from our own trainings match what they describe, too. We get […]

Another Guide Milestone

We love it when our guides do big things. Redline Guide Ken Hodges just finished summiting the highest 115 peaks in New England — better known as the NE115. This includes 48 mountains in NH, 46 in NY (Adirondacks), 14 in Maine, 5 in Vermont, then two more — Slide and Hunter — again in NY (Catskills). With two friends, Lynn and Celeste, I finally finished […]

Two More for Monica

While we did officiate a couple of weddings over the Veteran’s Day weekend, it wasn’t the only thing we were up to. Redline Guide Howard Aronson also worked this past weekend both Saturday and Sunday. Both times he was leading a returning guest, Monica. To remind you, dear reader, or to inform new readers, Monica is from New York City and is working on her New […]

Beyond Forever & Always

We just posted about a wedding we officiated at Glen Ellis Falls. And as was mentioned, it wasn’t the only wedding of the day. After a morning at the falls, our Justice of the Peace, Mike Cherim, set out for Crawford Notch and an iconic and aptly-named rock called Elephant Head. For those who don’t know, Elephant Head is a 150-foot high rock formation located at […]

In the Warmth of Love

Sure, we love guiding outdoor adventures and we enjoy the satisfaction of offering wilderness education to others, but one of the things that really warms our hearts are the weddings we perform. This is fortunate on some days. Like Saturday, November 11th, for example. It was pretty nippy out as you will recall. We needed all the heartwarming we could get. Thankfully we had two weddings […]

It’s Your Ceremony

Brides and grooms, we have good news: you can do no wrong. If you’ve been worried, stressing about how your non-denominational wedding ceremony will proceed or the vows that you’ll recite, you cannot screw this up. Seriously. We offer a simple standard ceremony and vows, and most folks are okay with that, but we are here to tell you that you can have it basically however […]

Five Fundamentals

Around town we prepare ourselves pretty well to meet the challenges of day-to-day life. If the weatherman says it’s going to rain we bring an umbrella, and we do check. Our day is structured by time so we usually know when it is, and we also know where we’re at and where we’re going almost all of the time. We mostly have our acts together. Even […]

Navigating the Fall

Historically, the fall has been an unpopular time to take a Wilderness Navigation class. It really makes no sense since the autumn is more comfortable, has fewer bugs, and the forest sightlines are improved after some of the leaves drop. In other words, it’s a great time to take this class. So, why most don’t is unusually inexplicable. We’re hoping, however, to change that this year. […]

Erik Samia Joins the Team

We’re pleased and excited to introduce our newest member of the Redline Guiding Team, Erik Samia. Erik is a Mt Washington Valley native… born and raised in the mountain area we love most. Thus his knowledge of the area and National Forest is intimate and extensive. That’s a combination of two things we hold dear. Moreover, he excels in multiple disciplines offering a well-roundedness that lends […]

Guided Dry River Backpack

A gift of adventure. That’s what one mother bought for her adult daughter, Anne. Anne was curious about the wilderness areas in the Whites and wanted to improve her navigation and backpacking skills. This will all come in handy since she has plans — or at least a desire at this juncture — to hike the length of the Appalachian Trail (AT) from Springer Mountain in […]

Well done graduates! Another Wilderness First Aid class we organized for the SOLO School of Wilderness Medicine just graduated this weekend. A new crop of 28 people that are smarter, better, and more capable than they were before. From now on, whatever they decide to do in the backcountry, they will be better able to do it and do it right. Everyone wins. Our students, their […]
