    Hi Cumulus!

    Just checking in from N. Tripyramid. We have at least 2 adults and 3 kids (kids ages range from 10-22, hah hah!) on our peak.

    We will be heading up from the Kanc via Pine Bend Brook to the summit. Some of us may descend via Sabbaday Brook Tr.

    You are welcome to join us, if you want to hike up together, instead of your planned route up the slide.

    We are meeting at 7AM in the Sabbaday parking lot (since there is little parking at Pine Bend Brook Trailhead) and shuttling the 1 mile to the Pine Bend Brook Trailhead.

    In any case, we’ll see you up top, most likely!

    Take care,

    Donna (wardsgirl)

    Kyle, I have a smallish 3’x5′ flag that I have taken to Whiteface in years past. If you have something bigger, feel free to bring it. I doubt we can get anything above the trees on S. Carter, no matter how big a pole we bring, however! 🙂

    Wow! That flag is sure to conjure some strong emotions, Shawn. Better bring an extra hankie.

    My son, the 9 year-old pictured in the 2005 Whiteface pics, is going to try to get the day off work so he can join us.

    Shawns! I am totally up for the pre-hike breakfast! It’s one way to guarantee that we will be awake for an early start.

    I like the idea of a grand ol’ display!

    It’s funny that in Fot48’s early years, my son and I were the only ones on the peak.

    It sounds like we will have a good group.

    😀

    Hey there!

    I am the peak coordinator for Mt. Whiteface.

    I have done Whiteface for Fot48 in the past- you can see my son in the album for Whiteface 2005. He’s much taller now- lol! I have a 3×5 flag and pole that fits nicely into one of the numerous holes that are drilled into the open summit area of the peak. However, some of you folks are equipped with a bigger set up that sounds totally awesome! Bring it because the more=the merrier as far as I’m concerned!

    In the past we have also put a tiny flag on the ‘true summit’ of Whiteface over on the Rollins Trail.

    I registered the name as “CRI,” which is where I work. We have a few avid hikers here that may want to participate. I wouldn’t hold my breath though!

    We will definitely be hiking up Blueberry Ledge Trail. Probably leaving between 7 and 8 am.

    Thanks for signing up! Let me know if you have any ideas for a theme, menu, or thoughts in general about the event. Also, it would be good to know how many people are coming, so we know when to cap it on this site.

    Thanks,

    Donna

    My son, Ethan, just turned 10 on August 28. He not only hiked, but also carried both flags… and our lunch… and a bunch of other stuff … and it was his idea to do the hike… He may not have been the youngest, but he sure loves hiking. This was his 35th 4000 footer and certainly the most memorable thus far!
