"Was an amazing hike in the ADK! The trail was snow packed and was doable in micros if you stayed "on" the trails The Elevated rock scrambles were a little tricky but doable, On This Day! Was the calm before the storm, First winter storm of the season for the area expected later today,12 to 24" Blustery snow Expected in the area, Hit the trail around 8:15am With Matt Peacock And made it to the summit In about 4 hrs,, Got Amazing views! Then in the distance we could see the storm approaching so we decided time to get off this mountain, Back at car around 2:30pm,, Light snow and light gusty wind" - First Brother, ramjet1963, Jan 19, 2019

"Cat Mountain + Thomas Mountain December 23rd, 2018 Cat Mountain 9:30a We started at 8am this morning, I was hungry and tired when I woke up and did most of this hike with a headache. The plan is to do this as well as Thomas Mountain today. This will be my longest hike to date at over 6 miles. Francis and Eli walk extremely fast up the mountain and it is hard to keep up with them. I am also way to nice to ask them to slow down. This came back to bite me in the butt since just a few seconds ago I stopped sat down on a rock and began feeling like I was gonna puke. I tried stopping myself " - Cat Mountain, devenmosher24, Dec 23, 2018
"What can I say............Jubilation followed by pure trauma and heartbreak. Our good friend, hiking partner & brother finally completed the Fire Tower challenge, on what would prove to be, his final peak. Mark Earle (Peakery Member MarkEarle67) sadly suffered a massive heart attack on the way down, and despite our best efforts with CPR, he sadly passed away in his "happy place". He always wanted to go out this way, quick, painless and in the Mountains. Fly high Brother, keep climbing..............RIP MarkEarle67." - Owls Head Mountain, UK-Ranger, Dec 1, 2018
