You make a lot of good points SC. Gives us all plenty to think about for next year. I really like the idea of physically getting together a few months ahead of time to exchange ideas. And it’s also a good plan to try to insure the more obscure peaks are covered. Ditto on the Owl’s Head suggestion. If not a “helium flag pole” then at least one tall enough and with a large enough flag that it could be seen from Franconia Ridge, Garfield and the Bonds.
Lots to consider between now and then…let’s keep the momentum!
