I enjoy hiking the 46, but I'm not terribly serious about it. I don't even have a complete list of hikes I've done; I'd have to confirm details with my Dad and other people we hike with. I would like to complete it though, I just don't have the time to commit to it seriously. Hopefully I'll do it before I'm too old lol

Good luck on your trip, three peaks in five days is still a nice chunk of hiking! What hike do you plan on doing as your last?

I'm waffling between Cascade and Marcy for the last. I keep saving Cascade/Porter for a day that's sort of marginal but good enough to go out. If I can save that for the end, I think it would be nice to have the easiest ones to finish on. Sort of a victory lap. But my thought with Marcy is pretty much the opposite: do Gray and Skylight and then finish by coming up the south side of Marcy for 46.

I don't want to finish on Cliff, Blake or Marshall, of the ones I have left. I could probably add the lesser Dixes to that list, too. But I've been on Giant, Gothics and Haystack in a sea of clouds, so ending on a treed summit wouldn't really be any worse.
