Howdy & Welcome to Moosilauke Summit Team 2013!!
Stoked for this year’s trek up the windy peak – The Moose!
Many/most of this year’s team know eachother personally already; we’re mostly flatlanders from CT & southern NH. So we’re already in touch.
If you’d like to be in touch before the hike PM me with your email and we’ll keep you in the loop. Regardless, please PM me anyway so we can chat about summit plans.
