 Re: To Grid or not to Grid?? That is the question! ;-)
So just to add something for perspective:

There seems to be an assumption that the grid has to be an obsessive pursuit. I'll just point out it does not need to be done quickly nor in repetitious fasion if one spends enough time hiking and some originality in planning.

My Mount Moriah dates on the grid span 14 years spread out in 2000, 2006, 2011, and 2014, involved 4 different routes, one spring snowshoe hike, one winter with crampons, one on a CM traverse in October drizzle, and one in summer while doing the AT. I've never hiked the Kenduskeag Trail nor the Moriah Brook Trail approaches, and want to, so I figure by the time I hike Moriah in all 12 months, it will be over 20 years or more, all the trails one to three times, and likely, in all the weather conditions. I'll have a good sense of that mountain by then but don't feel it necessarily has to be repetitive. If I complete the grid, I will know 48 mountains in a similar way. I realize other mountains have fewer approaches (and some have more) but I vary my hikes up in a few ways.

I was also someone who was 25% done before knowing what the grid was. I hiked the 48, then W48, then started hiking them in 4 seasons while returning to many favorites. I've hiked Passaconaway three times in March and was on Adams 5 times this past summer, none of which counted for the grid, so I'm not really addicted to it. I am addicted to hiking apparently.

I think there are various ways to approach even doing the grid from single-minded, goal-driven and fast as possible types, to those mixing it in with other pursuits and hikes, to lazily tossing dates on a grid sheet with no intention of doing it and then finding yourself a third done sometime.

Regardless, I think the time frame and variety of hikes involved is a consideration in the experience. They're all good as far as I'm concerned though.

Moderators - Dump this if you think it is too political :lol: :lol: :lol:

Our latest Gridiot is Jeb Bradley (congrats, and I enjoyed the NHPR piece). Perhaps some Democrat (or Green Party of any others) will feel the need to REPRESENT :lol: and be the next Gridiot.

 Re: To Grid or not to Grid?? That is the question! ;-)
Reason #??? (I have lost count) I could never do the grid is because I don't keep records. Well, I did for the NH48 (and badly at that as some I had to just fill in the month and year but could not remember the date). But I have not sent in for my W48 patch partly because, while I know I did all peaks in winter, I couldn't tell you the date (nor in some cases the month).

So for all I know I could be 50% through a grid and I would never even know it. :lol:

 Re: To Grid or not to Grid?? That is the question! ;-)
All this Grid Madness has sparked my curiosity, so against all that makes me who I am, and in the spirit of conformity and calamity, I filled out the sacred scroll. I'm at 31.3%.
Lots of interesting if not disturbing data: I've climbed Mt Adams 14 times, but only 6 different months. I've only climbed Moosilauke once!, it's a far drive......
I'm not obsessive, but I am a goal oriented person: I try to eat bacon every day, and in general try not to be a bad person.

So, I need Owlshead for January. Hell of Highwater, I'm bagging it this weekend! Who's with me???? :shock:
