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 […]

Recent Testimonials

We used the word “recent” in the title of this post, which is sort of funny since we’re actually only a nine-month-old company, but they really are fairly recent testimonials — meaning all of these are from actual guests from the 2017 season thus far. Note: Links added to reveal programs, and names made bold to highlight the guides named. Redline Guiding, I want to thank […]

Redline Guides Go West

Taking some time off from the rigors of guiding, Redline Guides Ken Hodges and Álvaro Marques, along with eight others, recently enjoyed a little mountaineering climbing not one, but two iconic Pacific Northwest mountains. First in Oregon, they cut their teeth on the 10,358′ South Sister. This climb helped them acclimate. They then headed to Washington and took on and summited the 14,410′ Mt Rainier where […]

A One-Day “Pemi Loop”

We enjoy reading the profiles on our Guides page. Seriously. They’re impressive reads by and large. If ever lacking inspiration, reading a few of those reminds us of what’s possible. In the hiker world, some of these people are rock stars. Even the humble beings who think otherwise, compared to most ordinary non-hiking mortals, they stand extraordinary. We’re proud they chose us and to be associated […]

Finishing the 100 Highest

The New England Hundred Highest peaks, that is. And it’s something Redline Guide Arlette Laan has just completed along with her husband, Rich. This list of mountains — many of which are trailless — is made up of peaks in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. What follows is a short summary and some photos of her finishing trip on New Hampshire’s Scar Ridge (which for those […]

Another Guide High Point

We enjoy telling folks about what our guides are up to when they’re not guiding or instructing a course. We can only share some. They are way too active for us to get into detailing the day-to-day runs, climbs, and hikes they do, even though many are surely noteworthy. The bigger stuff, however, we try to make the time for. As such, one on our guides, […]
