Agree about the poll, but I think if you run it “for a few months” people will delay in responding. Post a poll, but offer a deadline, so it has some urgency. Or if we need to, post it in May, and leave it up for two weeks only.
My $.02, I’ve experienced this kind of phenomenon at work a lot!
A poll is a good idea, but I would suggest running it after the peak registration has begun. More people will be visiting this site as the date draws near. You may not get the full results if you run the poll too early.TenPeaksDecember 15, 2004 at 2:14 pmPost count: 43
Ped: I still check this forum about once a week. Not sure why except maybe because it’s habit now. Anyway, I missed the TV coverage of your interview, but saw the replay on the web. As I mentioned before it’s unfortunate your story had to be told at all, but hopefully it will alert people to the dangers candles can pose. For instance, my wife likes to light a candle now and again. I’ve become paranoid about watching the thing since hearing your story.
Best of luck with your remaining hikes up the 48.TenPeaksOctober 8, 2004 at 12:45 pmPost count: 43
Has any attempt been made to contact the folks who raised a flag on the peaks with the missing pictures? It would be great if photos from all 48 peaks were in the album. Based on the previous list it looks like the following peaks are still missing.

I’m willing to hike either Saturday or Sunday, rain or shine. I’d even hike during the week to take part in this event if it came down to that.
In my opinion I believe this should be kept as a 1 day event. Holding the event over 2 days may lessen its impact. We raise the flag to honor those that were lost, remember that terrible day 3 years ago, and remind the world that Americans are united in the struggle against evil and tyranny. Besides, other commeration days are only observed one day a year, such as Veterans day, Memorial day, Labor day, etc.TenPeaksSeptember 16, 2004 at 3:06 pmPost count: 43TenPeaksSeptember 16, 2004 at 12:03 pmPost count: 43
Congratulations! While I was on top of Mt. Field several hikers asked me if flags were flying on all 48 peaks. Of course I told them yes. Last night I noticed that pictures from 34 peaks have been posted (not counting the Mooseland and Marcy pics). This is more photo albums than both of the last two years.TenPeaksSeptember 14, 2004 at 1:01 pmPost count: 43
The Mooseland seemed like a nice place, but I also got the impression they were not prepared for the amount of people that showed up. My friends and I stayed for about an hour and realized the chance of getting something for dinner there were pretty slim so we headed over to the Woodstock Inn for a quick bite before the ride home. It was great to meet all the other hikers and hear stories from the day.
KICKSTAND: Thanks again for letting me try your binoculars. I think it was with them that I (may have) seen the flag on S. Twin. I’ve got to get a more powerful and lighter set. Best of luck to you and your wife on your peak bagging adventures.

“i would have liked it if there was going to be flags on mansfield vermont, greylock mass. and frissell ct.”
I may be wrong but I believe there is always a flag flying on top of Mt. Greylock in MA since the “lighthouse” up on top is a war memorial. It’s been a number of years since I’ve been up there.
Best of luck to everyone and I hope you all have wonderful hikes!TenPeaksSeptember 9, 2004 at 9:55 pmPost count: 43
“Remember to pack your cameras, journals, and summit signs!”
Let’s not forget the flags either! I seriously had a dream the other night that I was standing on my summit and forgot my flag. I was making frantic calls on my cell phone to a couple of friends who were going to meet me on top. I woke up before either arrived with a flag.
The next morning I stuffed my flag into my backpack.
