Hey, man. Sounds like a plan. I do try to get up to the Adirondacks and New England but it's quite a haul. The Catskills are the closest "real" mountains but even they're 2 hours away. I've got some ambitious plans for up North this Spring and Summer so maybe then. A Dix Range traverse as well as a MacIntyre traverse (including Marshall) are two things I'm looking forward to doing.
10 hours? Wow... I guess you'll have to plan a long trip, or come up for something crazy like a Presi Traverse/Pemi Loop which'll make it well worth the drive. I'd love to make it to the Adirondacks sometime this summer, ideally. We shall see...
We hiked up to the Hough-Pough col, made camp, and went up to tag Hough. I had forgotten my foam sleeping pad, but we mad do by using the 2 empty packjs for the missing pad. Monday morning, we hiked up and got Carson and Grace. That's 42W now for me. Did you guys get
All the cool people, huh? I don't know about that, after all, I am friends with Adam.
I'm really disappointed I can't go this weekend, looks like it's shaping up to be a really fun time! I had some unexpected plumbing issues at my house that cost me close to a $1000. No extra money for the 5+ hour drive North.
Next time, hopefully!
BTW, where do you go to school?
NUM NUM is also going but I am not sure he can arrive at the trailhead by 5am. Not sure what you want to do. Sounds like with going over Dial and Nip you have a big day planned and want to start early.
