I asked Randy a question I had been wondering about since first hearing of his quest to hike all 48 of New Hampshire's 4,000 footers. Namely - Wouldn't it be easier for him and Quinn both to hike them in winter, with snow on the ground to even out the terrain? I should have anticipated his answer, which was - "Yes. But the point is not to make it easy. The point is to do something hard."
