    That route sounds great to me (with either ending). I can help a little with the car spot, but I drive a pickup truck so I can’t carry a lot of passengers.

    Cumulus, a 7:00 start sounds perfect. I’ll bring one package of Freedom Dogs, so there will be a few to share with any visitors we get.

    Glastonbury is a great location–my house is just 7 miles from downtown Hartford, but we have lots of rural, hilly country here. In the spring I go for conditioning hikes on the Shenipsit Trail. When my son was younger I would take him hiking in Meshomasic State Forest, and I used to do some mountain biking there, too. Now I do a lot of road biking in the hills without having to worry about much traffic. The only problem is that it’s so far from the White Mountains.

    Hello Cumulus,

    I will also want to tag North Tripyramid on this hike, so if we go up the south slide I would want to go down via either Scaur Ridge or back over Middle Tripyramid and down the south slide. I would also be willing to go up the north slide if it’s not wet (or up Scaur Ridge if it is wet). What time will you want to meet?

    On my last three Flags on the 48 I have brought a small Esbit grill and cooked Freedom Dogs for lunch at the top (I got this idea from Dave on Mount Clay in 2011). I will be happy to share if you want some.

    I’ve always enjoyed FOT48 and I’m looking forward to doing it again.

    Regards,

    Bob Saidi

    Hello SilentCal,

    Yes, six of us made the trip and flew the flag for two hours, although we departed at 1 p.m. because we wanted to be off the slide before the rain started. I just posted our trip report, along with a few photos in the gallery. Despite blisters I’m already looking forward to next year.

    Hello everyone,

    I will bring a small solid fuel (Esbit) grill and cook a small batch of freedom dogs if any of you are interested.

    Here’s hoping Thursday’s rains don’t raise Lincoln Brook too high. See you Saturday.

    Thanks for a great trip report, TMax! I’ve added a few more photos to the gallery. I did climb Mount Waumbek on Sunday, which was a much nicer day; I could probably see about half of the 48 from the outlook just past the summit. Also, at the fireplace on Mount Starr King I met a woman who had flown the flag on Mount Hale the day before.

    Kathy, the hatchery gate opened at 7:45 a.m., and the staff there told me that for the time being they are experimenting with closing it at 10 p.m., so we had plenty of time to fly the flag and hike down.

    I’m going to stick to the eastern approach. I’ll see you at the top a little before noon.

    Thanks, Kathy. Book time by that route is 3:45, so we might need a little more time to have the flag set up by noon. I’ll call the hatchery after I hear from the others, or if anyone else signs up for this peak.

    I won’t be able to get there that early. I’ll try to catch up, but I rarely go much faster than book time so we might not meet up until the summit. It looks like the North Hancock team will be right behind me. See you Saturday!
