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!

Katie Vaughan Joins the Team

We are delighted to announce the newest addition to the Redline Guiding team: Katie Vaughan. We’ve known and respected Katie, as a leader with the AMC New Hampshire Chapter, for quite some time so we’re pleased she has interest and wanted to join our merry cast of hikers. What follows is a bit of an introduction: Katie lived in the Boston area growing up and moved […]

World’s Best Woofer

Being the “world’s best…” is what they say about newly minted Wilderness First Responder (WFR) and Wilderness First Aid (WFA) students as they walk out the door with their credentials in hand, minds brimming with the latest and greatest wilderness medical knowledge. The honor of the title doesn’t last as these are highly perishable skills to learn. We quickly tuck them away into our memories (we […]

Rachel is proudly born and raised in Ohio. As a lifelong Ohioian, Rachel first moved to New Hampshire in 2010 upon graduation from Allegheny College to do trail work with […]

Guides in Overdrive

We really like to share the cool things our guides do when they’re not out there guiding. And they do a lot. So much, in fact, it’s hard to keep up. We recently mentioned that Redline Guide Bill Robichaud just finished his Appalachian Trail thru-hike. And while our focus was on that piece, Arlette Laan finished hiking the New England Trail with her husband, Rich. Jeffrey […]

Fourteen States

Redline Guide Bill Robichaud went on a long walk. He began by hiking up a little mountain in Georgia on a hot April morning, then ending some four-and-a-half months later on Baxter Peak of Mt Katahdin in Maine. The trail? Why, it was the 2190-mile Appalachian National Scenic Trail (better known as the AT), of course. And Bill took it on — as “Science Guy” (a […]

Cindy Zhou Joins the Team

New to our team of guides here at Redline Guiding is Cindy Zhou (pronounced schōh). Cindy comes to us from the city of Shenzhen in the southeastern part of China (see images below). It’s a busy, modern metropolis that links Hong Kong to China’s mainland. Similar to North Conway, it is known for its shopping destinations, but of course lacks our great mountains. If you’re thinking […]

Hiking the Cohos Trail

We love hearing about what our guides do off the clock as well as what they do when working, and we figure you might, too. We try to post their most significant accomplishments here for that reason. Because of this, and being that there are so many significant accomplishments happening in any given year, we stay busy documenting it all. And here we are again. This […]

Montanha do Pico

Redline Guides Álvaro Marques and Ken Hodges haven’t been around all week. They’ve been hiking in Portugal — the country Álvaro hails from. Not just any old hiking, either. On this trip they had their sights set on the 7713-foot (2351m) Montanha do Pico (Mt Pico) the country’s tallest mountain. Specifically Mt Pico is a stratovolcano located on Pico Island in the mid-Atlantic archipelago of the […]

Jean Lee Joins the Team

What began as a meeting between Redline Guiding owner Mike Cherim and local Justice of the Peace Jean Lee about cross-referring each other for officiation duties, ended up as a discussion about guiding in the White Mountain National Forest. This, as Mike learned, was something Jean had been doing in the area for the past four years. She had been bringing people to the summit of […]

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 […]
