…we met Laurie Burt (the president of the AMC, who was also staying there). She asked me what we were planning on hiking this day, and I told her all about the Flags on the 48, and that we were representing Mt. Adams. She seemed positive about the event, but did joking state “I won’t notify the Forest Service about what you are doing”
Not to dis Ms. Burt, I’m sure she knows what she is talking about, I’m also sure she was more kidding than serious. I just remembered that last year when I did Madison, I met a US park ranger at the top. He actually helped me raise the flag, took my picture, shook my hand and thanked me for doing what I was doing. He said that he heard about FOT48 and thought it was a great idea. So, I guess in hind sight, you could have said “they already know…”. Just an FYI.
