We’ve been attacked by some low-lifes in our sign up process and had about 1500 fake registrations for our event. I’ve spent some time removing the offending posts, but it’s possible some real folks were removed by accident. If you don’t see your name on the peak you registered for, please accept my apologies. If you could register again, your name will show up.
Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience.
I feel your pain. phpBB has some serious security holes. I run a forum that uses roughly the same version as yours and I had to kill all incoming user registrations b/c of it.FeldmrschlSeptember 8, 2011 at 12:12 pmPost count: 21
Do you have room for 3 more to hike Middle Carter on 9/11? We have hiked in 2 other years and would really like to hike this year. It would be me a fit 50 year old my 14 yr old son and 17 year old daughter. We would come up the night before and stay at Dolly Cobb to be at the trail head when you are ready.

No problem. The more, the merrier. We have 6 in our crew ranging in age from early 30s to mid 50s, five men and one woman.
We’re meeting at the Imp Trail (northern) trail head around 7am and starting the hike at 7:30. We’re not speed hikers, so we’re going to go slow and steady, especially considering the unknown trail condition in the wake of Irene.
Glad to meet ya. You’ll know me b/c I’ll be the one wearing the camo bush hat.FeldmrschlSeptember 8, 2010 at 9:03 pmPost count: 21
Nope, I don’t have a problem with that at all.
We won’t need anything extra. We have our own pole and flag and rope, but my pole is designed to fly the one flag I have. To fly yours, you’ll either have to bring your own equipment or we’ll have to jury rig something.
We’ll have six in our group. I’ll be the one wearing a camo jungle hat with pins stuck to it.
See ya there!FeldmrschlJuly 12, 2010 at 11:44 pmPost count: 21FeldmrschlSeptember 28, 2009 at 6:29 pmPost count: 21FeldmrschlSeptember 24, 2009 at 5:32 pmPost count: 21FeldmrschlSeptember 23, 2008 at 9:40 pmPost count: 21FeldmrschlSeptember 8, 2008 at 6:24 pmPost count: 21
Now that I see two unknowns on the peaks list for this peak, I’ll provide more details.
The original crew of six Zoran and ex-Zoran employees has been whittled down to four. We will be staying overnight in Gorham and meeting at the Nineteen Mile Brook trailhead on NH16 at 7:30am. 4 1/2 hours of hiking to get to the summit of Wildcat should be more enough time.FeldmrschlJuly 19, 2007 at 5:52 pmPost count: 21
I’m wondering if the flag can be carabinered to eyebolts, but also lashed to the pole during the raising. Then, yank on the lash to free the flag once it’s all raised.
Lowering would still be tough, I would imagine.FeldmrschlJune 26, 2007 at 4:02 pmPost count: 21FeldmrschlJune 25, 2007 at 4:34 pmPost count: 21FeldmrschlMay 1, 2007 at 5:37 pmPost count: 21
If there are more than enough people to cover all the 48, start registration for secondary (less than 4000 ft) peaks so that people who want to raise a flag can hike somewhere else in the area and raise one as part of the event.
Any more thoughts on this suggestion? I discovered this event in 2003 when hiking up Cannon and have gone up twice as a visitor in 2005 and 2006. I’m hoping to organize a crew for this year’s event.
Given that the 48 peaks get snatched up quickly now, I’m hoping that some consideration gets made for the unofficial 4000-ers and, possibly, sub-4000-ers. Frankly, flying flags on such peaks as Little Haystack and Hight would only add to the event, imho.
