I needed a page to put the random stuff that falls outside of what CTMQ is truly all about. That doesn’t mean it’s any less important to me – I love this stuff. I wish I had a more prominent place to put all the climbing/hiking stuff. Oh well.
Non-Connecticut Hiking and Peak-Bagging:
Don’t tell anyone, but this is perhaps my favorite pursuit. Moreso than museums. If I had the time, I’d knock off these lists right away. As life would have it, what with two little kids and a job and all that, these are pretty much life-long pursuits. I’m okay with that.
Note: As with everything on CTMQ, no matter what I’ve done in my life, these lists begin anew with the advent of digital photography and a wife. It just makes sense to me for some reason.
- 50 State Highpoints Project – Every state has a highest point to climb!
- New England’s Hundred Highest Peaks (NEHH) – This difficult to attain list includes all of the 4000 footers plus 33 more.
- Adirondack 46’ers (ADK46) – The 46 major peaks in the ADK’s. Not all have trails but hey, one is named Nippletop.
- Catskills 3500 Club (CAT35) – 35 peaks all above 3500 feet. And not too far away; though several are trail-less.
If I am able to complete the three lists above, I’ll also have completed the following:
- New England 67 (NE67)- The 4,000 footers in New England.
- New Hampshire 48 (NH48) – The 4,000 footers in New Hampshire
- Northeast 111 (115) – All 111 peaks (plus 4 historical screw-ups) in New York and New England over 4,000 feet.
Now that Calvin is 6 and got his first taste of “peak-bagging” and loved it silly, perhaps we’ll add the following two patched lists to our goals:
- 52 With a View (52WAV) – 52 peaks in NH under 4,000 feet worth climbing
- Terrifying 25 (T25) – White Mountain trails with slides and scrambles
- CTMQ Required Reading List – Fiction, non-fiction, it doesn’t matter.
- Modern Library’s Top 100 Books – We’re reading ’em all
Non-Connecticut Travel, Humor, & Lists:
- The 2006 World Cup Tour! – Hitting local pubs and restaurants that coincide with the countries playing soccer. Cooler than it sounds.
- US National Park Visits – Definitely list-worthy
- Past vacations – Hoang and I did some some good stuff over the years. Not all of them, unfortunately, were captured on digital though. Oh well. These links contain mainly just pictures.
