    Phillip,

    your 2012 accomplishments and 2013 goals are both very impressive! I think it is great that you are giving so much of your knowledge back to the outdoor community. I noticed you also included getting into the best shape of your life to the 2013 goals; how do you plan to do that? I wish you the best of luck in reaching all of your goals!

      The usual. Lots of hiking with a heavy pack. Lots of winter hiking in NH – lots, and lots of core work with kettlebells, bosu balls, medicine balls, body bar, trx, waterwalking. I reckon working out 3 hours a day should do it. I’m not in bad shape now, but I want to trim down a bit and boost my core strength. I want to have some pretty heavy duty adventures over the next decade. Time to get serious.

    Not sure my goals for 2013, hiking-wise. Last year’s goal was to complete the NH 4000 footers, so maybe this year will be to put a dent in ME and VT. I also want to do more backpacking and lead more trips with the AMC. Do you have any suggestions for more hiking goals?

    My biggest goal for 2013, though, is training for and running Boston Marathon. I’m very excited!

      Well – you could qualify to be a winter leader, section hike the New Hampshire AT (backpack), hike the 100 mile wilderness, or come bushwhacking with me this winter. :-)

    I just want to get back on the trail more. I have a veiw on my ride to work that just happen to look towards Franconia Ridge. a goal of mine is to hike all the peaks in that veiw. I’ve got a start on it but need to try to finish.
    Getting on the trail after so many years away has been such a pleasure and enjoyable. I forgot how much I missed being in the woods. More trails and more backpacking is in order for this upcoming year.
