I began leading bike trips for the AMC in 1990 and led for ten years before taking a break. When I became active with the Forty Plus Committee I decided to start leading again. I took a refresher leadership course and Wilderness First Aid and now I am certified as a cross-country ski and bike leader. I have met many wonderful leaders and trip participants and Forty Plus has become one of my most enjoyable retirement activities.

Discover Boston's Stony Brook Reservation

Sunday, January 7, 2018 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Explore this 475-acre gem of a state reservation within the city of Boston, a sister to the Middlesex Fells Reservation, protected for use by the public since 1850. We will ski the circuit and perhaps climb one of the hills to take in a view of Boston and/or the Blue Hills.

Knapsack with a change of mittens/gloves, an extra layer, and room to store a layer should you discover you have overdressed. Scarf, neck warmer or balaclava -- something to protect face from frostbite. Hand and/or toe warmers recommended. Suggest you drive with ski boots on so they are warm when you arrive.

Cross-country skiing is my passion. Love to explore locally, in NH, VT, Lake Placid, and farther afield. Prefer off-track, but do ski the occasional marathon.
