    Dabnabbit!
    I had to mention the W word! I *am* working that weekend, I'm so sorry I will miss your finish, Bear.
    Congrats in advance! I am certain you will be surrounded by many smiling faces as you reach the summit!

    Ahhhh... this sounds like it has the potential of being a fun day! I'm processing thoughts of trying to get there. We'll see what happens with weather and building...

    I've now marked this on my calendar, so a fun day will be assured! I'm looking forward to hiking with friends and having a burger and a beer (or two) on the top. Gotta love winter hiking. Maybe my buddy, Swiss Bob will make an appearance as well...

    Hey everybody! Thanks so much for so many responses to this! Thought I would give it a bump up and let everyone know I'm still planning to do this Sunday at 8am. Still have my fingers and toes crossed hoping for great weather but being a New Englander I'll take whatever I get! Please, even though this is on my birthday its not about gifts just comradery and having a great time! Hope to see you there and thanks again!

    Hey Giggy, logistics are in the plain print on page one posted back on January 16th. In the spirit of NH (Live Free or Die) I posted hike whichever you like. I'm traveling up the very tame Lonesome Lake Trail from Lafayette Place at about 8am. Possible stops and detours, hut privy and NE Cannonball. Should put us on top tween noon and 1pm. Planning to exit down Kinsman Ridge Trail and using the Glades on the lower half. The mountains ski trail report shows it closed for skiers. So it looks like fair game for glissading!

    Thinking about banging the Kinsmans in the morning then over the Balls to catch up with the party around 1:00 - the summit lodge sells beer I hear.....

    Any takers???
