Labor Day - Backpacking trip in White Mountains
Posted August 6th, 2013 - 2:12 am by from Somerville, United States (Permalink)
Anyone interested in forming a group over labor day to go backpacking i. The Whites? Ideally, I would like to cover Adams, Madison and Jefferson, but I know that might be ambitious. Open to other routes/mountains too. Let me know and we can create a gear list, itinerary and get this rolling!

Sounds like a lot of fun and I am always down for things like this. Adams, Madison and Jefferson are some of my favorites and I always love the chance to hike them again. Let's form a group and do it! My mother who is a CSer lives in Conway, NH and would love to host us all after a hike. We can camp out back with views of the Moat mountains and jump in the Saco river out back if it is still warm enough. Hope we get a fun group and do this!

Jesse,

That sounds awesome! Yes, I too hope we get a fun group and make this happen. Let's keep in touch. If you are up for coffee sometime let me know! It's always nice meeting a new hiking buddy too. :)

What a great idea! I am definitely interested. I have already been up to Washington several times as well as Adams and Jefferson. We should definitely meet up for tea/coffee! Sometime this week?

Awesome! Yeah that is a great idea Andrzej! How about we try to get together on Wednesday evening? We can meet, get to now each other, and maybe even make some preliminary plans. How does that sound? Any locations that work best? I am coming from Somerville (davis sq area). :)

Hi,
I've lived here in Boston area for many years, and have hiked most of the White Mountains.
I would go, and drive some people, IF you take my advice and go a couple of weeks later.
First, it gets less crowded on the trails and second, it's
cooler -- 60's instead of 80's.
So, anyone interested, let me know.

Hi All;
I'm quite new in Boston area, I would like to join you in the trip to White Mountains. I think that also that getting together before is a great idea.

Michelle,
If you want, we can plan a group for late Sept./early October. You have to find out if and how much experience people have, do they know what to bring, etc.

Let me know, Lenny

Hi Lenny,

Thanks for your response! I agree it's a great suggestion and certainly we can try to get a group out a couple weeks after too. As of now there's a good turnout for this date. Keep in touch and maybe another trip can go out late September.

Michelle,
When you say "backpacking", are you thinking
of a multi-day trip, with camping? Does everyone responding to you understand this?
Beginners might be better of with staying in some lodging between hikes!

Hi all,

I'm also interested in going with you. Can you send me a PM with the details?
This would be my first trip to the The Whites!

Fernando.

Yes! Count me in! I've got a 2 person tent, a portable water filter, and random other camping gear stuff, can rent a car also if we split the costs:)

Hey everyone! We have an awesome turnout for this trip. Setting up logistics and transferring communication to email. Please PM me your email address/phone number to be added onto the list. We will try to set up another time for everyone to get together as the date gets closer. Looking forward to a fun weekend!
