Updated Covid-19 Policy

It’s not over until it’s over for everyone, worldwide, this is fact, but tell that to the people in our little corner of the world. We now see very few masks being worn anywhere. There are some holdouts, of course, but by the day they crumble and cave. Meanwhile, there are still daily infection rates hovering somewhere above zero in New Hampshire — the number’s been […]

Two-Day Navigation Class

We recently ran a two-day Wilderness Navigation class for a mother-daughter team. Nothing unusual there, except for one thing: we rarely ever make blog posts about our classes due to a few factors, but this time, seemingly to the amusement of our guests, we made a whole 22:33 motion picture about their experience. Check it out (contains some reminders for past students)… Great job everyone!

Guide Spotlight: Arlette Laan

Our guides are a big deal. They’re cool, smart, good looking, and really good at what they do. As such, we like to spend some time sharing information about them so that you, dear reader, will appreciate them as much as we do. In this entry we will cast our guide spotlight on Redline Guide Arlette Laan — who’s currently hiking the massive 4700-mile North Country […]

“The Best Guided Hike”

Redline Guiding provides unparalleled service in the realm of guide services. Folks say stuff like that when we lead them into paradise and their minds are blown. They see photos and watch videos, but in person it’s something else, not entirely describable. Inasmuch we have to admit that our video productions, the one below and any we’ve ever done, will only clue folks in so much […]

Slow and Steady, Part II

Our team from the Slow and Steady NH Women Hikers group — a private, closed group — did it again, in that members of their group joined our guides on another adventure; this time with more stable weather. On lead for this trip was Redline Guide Deb Dunn and according to our guests, she did great. Below you will find some content from Deb highlighting their […]

Warriors Hike

Over the winter we have been offering classes to Veterans in the Wounded Warrior Project. Due to their national reach combined with the challenges of Covid-19, these classes have all been virtual. It’s been great, but even greater was to meet some of these folks in person, at least from this region, once again. This wasn’t our first hike with them, last time we made our […]

Juxtaposed Wedding

Word of mouth is how Redline Guide and NH Justice of the Peace Mike Cherim got this particular wedding assignment — all the way down yonder in Auburn, NH. He married another couple, friends of this couple, and they liked Mike’s style, so to speak. He seemed so relaxed, confident, and happy. Positive vibes to spare. A lot of people ask Mike to marry them for […]

Jackson History-Walking Tour

We are sometimes asked to do things that, for us, are outside the norm. If we feel we can deliver to our usual and now expected level of service, however, we try. For example, we’ve twice offered a convenient porter service setting up someone’s backpacking camp for them so they didn’t have to so they could better enjoy the hike. Then there was that time we […]

Give Me Fliberty

Essentially, the title details exactly what our guest was looking for. For those not in the know, this returning guest requested a Mt Flume (4328′) to Mt Liberty (4459′) loop hike — hitting two 4000-footers on the southern half of the Franconia Ridge. He also requested his guide from last time, namely he requested Redline Guide Pat Ferland if it was possible. It was a good […]

Blood and Mud

We often lead special group adventures, a lot of women’s-only offerings, and that was the case here. And in this case we were leading four guests on what was planned as a three-day, two-night wilderness backpack. This trip, led by Redline Guide Samantha Fairfield, ended up being just two-days, one-night, due to weather and other concerns. Sam told us they had a great time, although there […]
