    Will yoiu still hike if it’s raining. It looks like it might be rainy both Saturday and Sunday.

    I’d rather hike in the rain than hike in the black flies.

    As far as Sept.11th goes, nothing short of two broken legs will stop me from putting a flag at the summit…ok, with one broken leg I may have to think it over. :flag:

    A few weeks ago I hiked 15 miles on the AT in Maine in the pouring rain to bag Saddleback and the Horn. About 4 of those miles were on an open ridge. If I can tolerate those conditions then I’ll have no problem raising a flag on a soggy summit.

    I can handle the rain. I have a problem with lightning.

    I would be there rain or shine for Fot48. The fact that Garfield is my #47 is just additional incentive.

    Lightning will get me down early, though.

    I’ll be there unless hurricane winds prevent me.

    Saturday will be a great weather day to hike.

    Saturday night will be even better for us to share our day!

    Hope to see and meet 80 of you at the Mooseland Grill Saturday evening. We’ll be an hour late this year. See you at 7pm and we’ll stay long enough to meet the rest of you!

    Nothing short of lightning could keep me off Madison.
    That and winds over 100 mph.

    The remnants of Frances is expected to affect the area Thursday with upwards to 4″ of rain. Those backcountry camping/hiking on Friday (this includes me) should be aware of possible issues crossing streams and low-lying areas. Have a backup plan in place. We may have to change our route or car camp

    At least 2 in our group are hiking no matter what. We have a graphite flag pole just in case of lighting!

    I’m still adding the estimate and will certainly let Dawn know on Thursday how many of us hungry and thirsty hikers will be at the Mooseland Grill Saturday night.
