Guides Do Marry

It’s happened before. One minute they’re guiding, living a bachelor’s dream life out of their van, the next minute they getting swept off their feet. It stands to reason, though, when you have a sharp looking crew like our team of guides. This time at the altar was Redline Guide Álvaro Marques, and with him his lovely now-wife, Suzy. Like many couples this year, 2020 has […]

Ready to Respond

We love it when our guides earn their Wilderness First Responder (WFR) credentials in backcountry medicine. That way they can perform a proper backcountry medical response should it ever be required. That’s what Redline Guide Deb Dunn just did, she re-certified after some time away from it. We’re here to help her celebrate. Deb traveled to Vermont for this SOLO class, but she told us it […]

It’s All About the Guides

It’s hard to keep up with all the cool things our guides do, but some things do stand out… Arlette Laan Awarded #1 Fastest Known Time of the Year (FKTOY), Female Hiking a diettissima, at least here in the White Mountain National Forest, refers to hiking all 48 of the 4000-footers in one continuous hike.

Mike M Earns a WFR

Newest Redline Guide Mike Maciel has been very hard at work as he develops as a mountain guide with Redline Guiding (not just a porter). This development happens in bits and pieces over time, with experience giving context. One of the major bits one needs to overcome is the required medical training. Specifically Mike earned the coveted Wilderness First Responder (WFR) patch from SOLO. For those […]

Guides Do Good

They’re a tough crowd to keep up with, but we try. We love to write about some of the cool things our guides do when they’re not guiding or teaching. We also love to tout their certifications and technical accomplishments. For example, this summer Redline Guide Arlette Laan finished hiking the Pacific Northwest Trail. She then went on to complete a Direttissima (hiking all 48 4000-footers […]

Team in Training Hike

This past weekend we provided leadership to an important Team In Training event raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). We found ourselves doing this thanks to North Ridge Mountain Guides (NRMG) who sought us out for leadership assistance. (Mike and the owner there, Jamie, used to guide together and are friends.) The leadership provided came from Redline Guides Ken Hodges, Jeffrey Shutak, and […]

Significant Walking

We love sharing some of our guides’ more significant accomplishments. We’d love to write about all of their accomplishments, but it’d simply be too much work so we stick to the significant bits. And that’s why we’re writing here and now. With the accompaniment of her husband, Rich Gambale, Redline Guide Arlette Laan — whom we write about a lot due to all the cool stuff […]

Another First Responder

We love it when our guides increase their knowledge, making themselves better guides. Taking classes, for example, to earn their Wilderness First Responder (WFR) credentials. That’s what Redline Guide Cindy Zhou just did, earning her SOLO WFR (and renewing her CPR/AED in the process) through the University of Massachusetts in Lowell, which hosted the course. Congratulations Cindy! Earning your WFR is awesome! Well done!
