I am about a quarter mile from the VT border and spend a fair amount of my indoor time at my wife's house near Rutland. Incidentally, I am also about a half mile from the AT.
I have a favorite mountain group in the Adirondacks but I can rarely get there. Now I must content myself with mostly the Long Trail, which is not much in the way of suffering.
Currently I am hoping to pry loose time to do two hikes: from the MA border to my home, maybe three days if I have any fitness. I am also hoping to do the LT from Rutland to my home, assuming again I can get the time, realistically about seven/eight days. If time presses, I may be able to do Manchester to home in something like four/four and a half days.
Time is a killer as I am most busy in the summer, dealing with injuries professionally. I have worked at an athletic camp and of late at Spartan races as an Eventmedic. I have been inspired at the age of 64 to do my first Bad Mudder. I plan to work one day, run the other. This summer I will be doing medical work at a religiously oriented camp in the Berkshires.
And BTW I may carry the most first aid gear of anyone you are likely to meet. Why? No, Grasshopper, not for me, for you and the other less well equipped folk I meet: bleeding, sprained, going into anaphylaxis, etc. I complained once in a forum about th weight of my kit and a reader suggested that the heaviest thing you can carry is a conscience.
