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 […]

Ryan Mcguire Joins the Team

Relocation of the body so as to move the heart closer to its one true love. Anyone who has moved to a place they love, a place they visit often — a place at least hours away from where they live — might be able to relate to this statement (see inset). Right now Redline Guide Ryan Mcguire is trying to make this a reality in […]

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 […]

Guide’s Day Off

In the case of Redline Guide Arlette “Apple Pie” Laan, we really mean Guide’s Winter Off. In typical fashion, Arlette spent the winter crushing big miles with her husband, Rich “Greenleaf” Gambale. Specifically, from December 31st, 2017, to February 28th, 2018, the husband-wife thru-hikers clocked about 850 miles during two back-to-back hikes. The first was Benton-MacKaye Trail, a 550 mile figure-eight involving part of the AT […]

Another WFR on the Team

A hearty congratulations goes out to Redline Guide Jeffrey Shutak for earning his Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification from the SOLO School of Wilderness Medicine. Affectionately referred to as a “Woofer,” not to be confused with the “Woofah” for those earning just the Wilderess First Aid (WFA) certification. It’s awesome that Jeffrey did this. Should any of our guests have a medical situation or injury while […]

Another Guide Milestone

We love it when our guides do big things. Redline Guide Ken Hodges just finished summiting the highest 115 peaks in New England — better known as the NE115. This includes 48 mountains in NH, 46 in NY (Adirondacks), 14 in Maine, 5 in Vermont, then two more — Slide and Hunter — again in NY (Catskills). With two friends, Lynn and Celeste, I finally finished […]

Erik Samia Joins the Team

We’re pleased and excited to introduce our newest member of the Redline Guiding Team, Erik Samia. Erik is a Mt Washington Valley native… born and raised in the mountain area we love most. Thus his knowledge of the area and National Forest is intimate and extensive. That’s a combination of two things we hold dear. Moreover, he excels in multiple disciplines offering a well-roundedness that lends […]

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 […]

We still have spaces for these open-to-the-public courses. […]
