    Update: I tried sending the Madison Team a group email thru the signup page, but apparently it didn’t work so I will just post it here.

    The weather is looking fantastic! We are going to have excellent views and will probably see several other group’s flag. It will be chilly on the summit though, so please be prepared.

    It is hard to believe that today is the 19th anniversary. We will do our part tomorrow…

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Just a quick update. Even though it is going to be a little cold and wet, we are still on as planned! Please bring a lot of warm clothing and rain gear. This weather is much better than 3 years ago! If you are not used to hiking in cold wet weather, please reconsider joining us. Safety is our number 1 priority. The other thing that helps us is that we will be below treeline most of the day, which shelters us. Other than that, it should be a memorable day! I look forward to meeting everyone new and seeing familiar faces!

    BTW, I will be easy to spot in the parking lot because I will be the only person wearing a NY Yankee hat. :}

    The weather is looking great for the hike. It will be cold though (mid 30’s on the summit), so please make sure you bring a good jacket, hat, and gloves. We will be hanging out on the summit for 2 hours.

    I will be parked at Appalachia in a black grand jeep Cherokee with Mass plates. I will also be easily recognized because I will be the only one wearing a Yankee cap. 🙂

    I’m looking to meeting everyone!

    Una_dogger, Dogs are more than welcome! Looking forward to seeing you and Michael again.

    Mark, Yes, we are planning on heading back down Caps Ridge, but feel free to spot cars and head down Lowes. We have plenty of extra people to help carry stuff down.

    The weather is looking cold with a 40% chance of rain. Much better than last year 🙂

    I’m looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones!

    Don’t worry, this will all be cleaned up soon. This is all part of the initial sign up process/frenzy which happens every year.

    Also, adding placeholder names is ok (and encouraged), if they are going to be part of a group. We don’t want more than 10 people signed up per peak.

    I’m thinking the same thing SilentCal. :flag:

    The plan is to meet at 8:45am and start up the Caps Ridge Trail at 9. All we need is good weather and a little wind…

    Thanks Michael for offering to drive some of the gear up, but we will have enough people to handle it. See you on the summit!

    Jason,

    Brian is correct. Please don’t solicite people on this site to buy one of your calendars, and people reading this, please don’t buy one.

    This is a grass roots memorial hike with nothing to ever be sold regarding it, so please Jason just find another business opp…

    Thanks

    Awesome video! Nice job Mike. It was also good to see that GO made it back this year along with Gary. They have been regulars to Monroe for just about all of Fot48’s, along with Dr. D…

    When we first began to organize what was to become the Flags on the 48 in Sept 01, we had deep discusions on going with the Flags on the 50 (Clay would have been included, along with Little Haystack or Guyot). BUT, we ended up going with what White Mountain hikers know so well….

    None of this matters anyway, this event was started to have the people in the hiking community get together to have a memorial for all of the innocent people who perished that day. It’s not about what peaks have flags, or if they are covered or not, it is about all of us hikers bonding together for a few hours and letting the world know that we CARE, and we THINK and REFLECT about all of those people who died just by going to work on that sunny September day…

    Nice idea, but are you planning to sell these for profit?
