We plan to take the Avalon Trail up to the Willey Range Trail and back again. We’re a pretty small group at this point, more are welcome!Z-manAugust 26, 2006 at 1:04 amPost count: 27
Okay, so I am completely new to the Whites, and was wondering…Where are we meeting up? 😮
Iw ill probably come in on Friday, take a half day from work and then make the drive up. I am not sure how long of a drive it is going to be, but I’d rather get in early while still light out. You know, being in a new place and all..ChrisKeymasterAugust 26, 2006 at 1:09 amPost count: 884
We are staying at the KOA Broken Branch Campground, which is on Woodstock NH. You can check it out and get directions by cruising over to their web site:
We’ll probably hit the trailhead at about 8:00 AM so we can be sure we’ll hit the summit by noon. If you’ve never really hiked, you should try to get a decent pair of boots and break them in before the hike. You should also be sure to have some non-cotton clothing to hike in, EMS has some excellent options.
Welcome aboard!Z-manAugust 26, 2006 at 1:15 amPost count: 27
I’ve hiked a bunch, in the past and run a bunch..so I should be okay. i did just pickup a new pair of Garmont boots and have been wearing them a bunch. Hitting Bear Mountain (CT) this weekend for a hike, and plan on giving the boots a good go…
i also have a bunch of moisturewhick stuff.
Looking forward to the hike :beer:ChrisKeymasterAugust 26, 2006 at 1:19 amPost count: 884
Awesome! Do you think you’ll make it to the Broken Branch? Dome and I will have “the condo” (camper) which will be nice.Z-manAugust 26, 2006 at 1:35 amPost count: 27
I think so…Trying to work my bosses to get Friday as a 1/2 day… I alos have a new tent on its way so I kind want to give it a whirl..lol I’d rather get there Friday night then leave at like 2 in the morning here to get up there Saturday 😮 That would make for a very long day… lolChrisKeymasterAugust 26, 2006 at 1:46 amPost count: 884
You’re absolutely right about that! I used to live down that way (Bridgewater, NJ) so I know what the drive is like. And you’d have to leave by 1:00 AM at the latest to make it, unless you own a plane or helicopter!Z-manAugust 26, 2006 at 1:55 amPost count: 27
Wish I was that rich…hahaha
Just got off the phone with a buddy of mine, I went to College with him, he may come and join as well.
BTW I assume you have a flag? I am going to bring one as well…My buddy was in the Marines and flew it over Afghanistan and Iraq. Then gave it to me, so I was gonna bring it as well to fly high. Not a big Flag though,…ChrisKeymasterAugust 26, 2006 at 2:00 amPost count: 884
I do have a flag, two in fact (including one with only 48 stars!) but I would much rather use yours! Please bring it along and I’ll take care of the flag pole.TrekManParticipantAugust 27, 2006 at 12:46 pmPost count: 149
FYI … I live in Suffield CT and can get to Crawford Notch in under 4 hours. Not sure where in CT you are coming from.ChrisKeymasterAugust 27, 2006 at 4:04 pmPost count: 884
Ooops, you’re right. From CT will be shorter!Z-manAugust 28, 2006 at 2:06 amPost count: 27
I am going to be coming from Stamford. I am planning for about 5-5.5 hrs. Work until noon, then head out about 12:30-1pm. Ther no later then 7-7:30.
Need to work out the actual directions and stuff though. Still haven’t even mapquested the campground yet. lolChrisKeymasterAugust 28, 2006 at 3:13 amPost count: 884
It’s super easy. From Stamford (my Grandmother lives there!) take 95 to 91 to 84 to 90 to 290 to 495 to 93 to exit 31. Piece o’ cake!Z-manAugust 28, 2006 at 11:45 amPost count: 27Z-manSeptember 1, 2006 at 11:11 pmPost count: 27
Keep your fingers crossed. I know a bunch of folks in the military and put in a request for some fly bys if they could work it…A buddy is going to see if any flights are going to be heading out of Pease from 12-2 on that day and if they could to Fly by…
Seeing the A-10 flyby is what gave me the idea…
