More Guide Shenanigans

While Redline Guide Arlette Laan was taking her long walks with her husband, Rich, more of our guides were doing their own thing — this is why we need so many guides, half are always out playing. Specifically, Redline Guides Liz Wyman, Ken Hodges, and Jeffrey Shutak were off in three different directions having three distinct adventures of their own. Let’s start with Liz, since she […]

Guide’s Day Off

In the case of Redline Guide Arlette “Apple Pie” Laan, we really mean Guide’s Winter Off. In typical fashion, Arlette spent the winter crushing big miles with her husband, Rich “Greenleaf” Gambale. Specifically, from December 31st, 2017, to February 28th, 2018, the husband-wife thru-hikers clocked about 850 miles during two back-to-back hikes. The first was Benton-MacKaye Trail, a 550 mile figure-eight involving part of the AT […]

Another WFR on the Team

A hearty congratulations goes out to Redline Guide Jeffrey Shutak for earning his Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification from the SOLO School of Wilderness Medicine. Affectionately referred to as a “Woofer,” not to be confused with the “Woofah” for those earning just the Wilderess First Aid (WFA) certification. It’s awesome that Jeffrey did this. Should any of our guests have a medical situation or injury while […]

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 […]

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 […]

Completing Two Lists

It meant a lot of hiking, but Redline Guide Ken Hodges just completed two popular New England hiking lists. One was the New England Sixty-Seven, NE67 (which is the sum of the 14 Maine, 5 Vermont, and 48 New Hampshire “4000-footers“). It’s quite the accomplishment on its own. For Ken, though, he was simultaneously working on finishing the New England Hundred Highest, NEHH. That’s the NE67 […]

WFA Graduates

Well done congratulations to one and all. We’re offering four opportunities for people to earn their Wilderness First Aid credentials this year by offering discounted SOLO WFA classes. Two have been completed so far, and we have two more to go for 2017, one on the weekend of October 21st-22nd, then another on the weekend of November 11th-12th. We still have spaces for these open-to-the-public courses. […]

Slide Above The Nubble

Two of the team, Redline guide Bill Robichaud and guide and owner Mike Cherim, completed the New Hampshire peaks on the New England Hundred Highest list with the ascent of the 3813-foot Peak Above The Nubble. Not only did they manage to find the top of this “trailless” mountain, they did it in a fun and interesting way. The duo went at it from the northwest […]

Hikers Helping Hikers

Knowing how to find one’s way to the top of all of New Hampshire’s 4000-footers is one thing (and a fine accomplishment, to be clear), but here at Redline Guiding the knowledgebase we draw from goes well above and beyond the norm. We’ve got a kick-butt team… hiking machines. Two of the team have hiked all the trails. We mean that literally. At heart we’re all […]

Wedding on a Farm

And just to be clear, this isn’t just any old wedding on a farm, this is the wedding of Redline Guide Mike Kaminski and his lovely bride, Nicole. That’s right, one of our own, tied to the hitchin’ post and loving it. And we were playing a part. The ceremony, which took place on Saturday the 9th of September — a beautiful day with perfect temperatures […]

Redlining the White Mountains

“Redlining” in this context means to hike all of the trails described in the AMC’s White Mountain Guidebook. That’s 1440.4 miles based on the book’s 29th Edition, but since the most basic out-and-back trail requires two trips — out and back — it adds up to a whole lot of hiking and exploring when it’s all said and done. Redlining is a novel, rewarding pursuit that […]

Jeffrey Shutak Joins the Team

We are very pleased to announce the newest member of the Redline Guiding team: North Conway local, Jeffrey Shutak. Jeffrey is retired and being local may help us fill a niche for the many mid-week hikes we lead. Jeffrey is also an avid Nordic backcountry skier — which we will find useful this winter (but we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves… do look for […]
