    more Belknaps fun

    It's that time of the year again. For this incarnation of the "all the Belknaps in a day" thing, Farmer and I chose to add a little mileage and elevation, in order to get more time on the Quarry Trail (and in turn, add the bump known as East Quarry).

    So it went like this: Major, Straightback, East Quarry, West Quarry, Rand, Ana, Mack, Klem, Suncook, Piper, Whiteface, Piper, Belknap, Gunstock, Rowe.

    Total elapsed time: 5:19:02

    I hadn't been up in the Belknaps since the spring. It was good to be back. No snow. No ice. Just leaves, rocks and dirt.

    Edit: this happened on Saturday, 10/16/10

    Dude, nobody cares that you "jogged" over some hills near a lake? What's up with that?

    perhaps he needed to mention "fastest known time" in the title?

    The Belknaps aren't nearly hardcore enough to warrant reports of "fastest known anythings"...

    ...and no one would care anyway.

    5:19 is indeed the FKT for all of the Belknap Range listed peaks.

    At least one group has still done it faster, but they chose not to publicize it - hence their time is classified as a "FUKT": Fastest Un-Known Time.

    Keep up the good work, guys!

    You could try the Wachusett 4:20

    Red-line all trails and roads.
    About 17 miles, not including the short sections, you would have to do twice.
    You'll have to figure out the route.
    Just a little something closer to home you can try, if you don't feel like driving.
    Hell, you guys could probably just do this after work some night.
    The bar will be set at 4:20

    I talked by cell phone to 9 that were still lost and eventually all was well.12 of them had ended up on Bickford road.the 9 that I talked with were lost on the Boulder trail.They ended up back on top then got lost on the Red trail after being told to wait on the summit where 2 Fire fighters would meet them. The fire fighters did find them before the cold got to them. An interesting time to say the least. Hal
