A.T. Finisher, Age 74, Finds Her Bear

Debby’s trailname is “Bear Repellent” because over the decades while trying to section out the Appalachian Trail she had never spotted a bear. Finally, however, in the nick of time we might add, Bear Repellent got to meet a bear named Prince Hairy, a mere three feet from her finish line in Tennessee. We wanted to literally be there to help welcome her to the end […]

Arlette Did a Thing

Arlette Laan is the First Woman to Hike All 11 of the National Scenic Trails We’re told to believe that a single photo is worth a thousand words. And often that statement is quite true indeed. At other times, however, the opposite statement contains the kernel of truth. Sometimes a photo tells us very little. Sometimes a photo needs a thousand words — or more — […]

We often thank our guests for choosing Redline Guiding. Now it seems that’s caught on as we just received the 2022 Travelers’ Choice Award from Trip Advisor. It’s thanks to you, our guests, for leaving positive ratings and reviews — for which, you should know, we are extremely grateful — and it’s also thanks to you, our awesome team of guides, for giving our guests something […]

Guide Spotlight: Mike Maciel

Because inquiring minds want to know this stuff. Because our guides are legends. They’re rock stars. People want to know what they eat for breakfast. What they think and how they feel. They want to know them during the hike as well as after. We decided to pose what we think may be three popular albeit unique questions to Redline Guide Mike Maciel: So, Mike, please […]

Trail 9 of 11

We can barely keep up with all that our Redline Guides do. Between the trips and adventures they lead, the training they put themselves through, and all that they do on their days off recreating, it’s sometimes a little mind blowing and always impressive, at the very least. This post marks yet another accomplishment. This time it’s Redline Guide Arlette Laan… a.k.a. Apple Pie or just […]

Epitome of Who We Are

This one episode of Windows to the Wild epitomizes who we are — it exposes our core. This will make our third appearance on Windows to the Wild (see footnote), a staple of the New Hampshire Public Broadcasting Station (NHPBS), hosted by the beloved Willem Lange. And here it is, without further ado: Windows to the Wild: Sectional Hiker – Season 17, Episode 4 » This […]

Training, Hiking, and Climbing

We had a lot going on this past weekend. It began with a postponement of a Backcountry Ski Tour because… well, no snow. It also ended with a postponement of an Ice Climbing Intro because… well, too much snow (driving considerations forced the change). And snow, the lack or abundance thereof, only started the challenges. The forecast alpine winds and bitter temperatures added to the logistical […]

Guide Spotlight: Will Murphy

Every now and then we like to turn the spotlight onto one of our guides, asking them three questions. In doing so helping our guests and our readers get to know them better. We selected Redline Guide Will Murphy for this installment because of feedback we received over the summer. One common thread in the observations made by our guests was that Will seems completely at […]

We’re Five Now

We officially opened our doors on October 17th, 2016. This means we are now five years and one day old — since we didn’t get to this post yesterday. We’re working on becoming six. If we were a human child we would be able to hold a decent and entertaining conversation with an adult right about now, and we’d be headed off to kindergarten, ready to […]

Guide Spotlight: Jeffrey Shutak

A quick search will reveal a couple of these “Guide Spotlight” posts. And clearly it is time for another. This time we wanted you to get to know Redline Guide Jeffrey Shutak a little better. We welcomed Jeffrey to the team on August 15th, 2017, so he’s been contracting with us for a while — almost since the beginning. In this post we are asking Jeffrey […]

Alpine Guide Course

Over the past nine days Redline Guide Ryan McGuire took a hiatus from guiding in Washington State to continue his professional development and move one step closer to being a card-carrying, fully certified Alpine Guide through the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA). The Rocky Mountains in Colorado were a perfect venue for Ryan’s training. Ryan reports that was a heavy focus on short-roping and short-pitching on […]

Train Station in the Sky

One of the nice things about the 6288′ Mt Washington, despite its crazy weather, is the very infrastructure we love to hate. Cursing right now are the die-hard hikers that, for good reason, feel that planes, trains, and automobiles have no place on the summit of one of their beloved mountains. We won’t argue the point, but we will also play devil’s advocate for a moment. […]
