I have been talking to my son who is in the Marines stationed state side (thank god) and he is going to be trying to get a week off in July to do the seek the peek with me.He says basically he wants to see if I am going to make it.He is waiting for the web site to come on with the stp 08 so he can start getting pledges from all his buddies down there and says it is now a challenge that he will raise more than me. Either way I think it will be great just to hike up the mountain with him. I just had to share this with someone.Can't wait till next July.Does anybody know if it is still going to be on July 26th. I want to make sure I get a campground reservation @ a good campground for my trailer. Thanks for listening.

I think STP will be on the same day or at least within a day or two. I think they keep it on the last Saturday. Anyway if all goes well I will be volunteering that week on the summit. So I will see everyone on top!

I will have a pot of it going all the time for anyone interested. Who knows, maybe it will become the official coffee of the MWO!

maybe some one who knows the camping in the area will start a post on a good camp site to stay at so some of us can all make plans to stay at the same one . that way we can get a block of sites together .
what do you think ?

I'm not sure but that shouldn't stop anyone from gathering pledges now. When the page is created then you can put the amount you have raised under the amount raised off line spot, provided you get cash or a check toward the event. You will have to wait for the page for credit cards though unless you have a terminal in your house.:D

With the increased interest in STP for 2008 I am sure the folks in charge will get the site up and running as soon as possible. I understand they are close.

Last year several of us stayed at Moose Brook. I plan on staying there again. The area was nice and it had hot showers, where as the campground closer in didn't.

I scanned last years pages in my computor and I changed the dates and a few things on the pages and printed it back out now it reads 08 stp and I put it on my counter at work with a bottle and I have been getting people throwing money in already. I also run a welding supply store and I got two of my vendors to donate some items and I am raffling off a electronic welding helmet @ $5.00 per ticket with a total of 50 tickets to sell and a poker set @ $2.00 a ticket for a total of 25 tickets. I am doing whetever I can to raise $$$$.I have alot of customers ask me about the STP. and when I tell them about what it is and what its for they throw a dollar or two in the bottle.I should have no problem with raising the $100.00. My customers really like me so I guess that helps to. Just thought I would throw my Ideas out there incase it could help anybody.

Those are some great suggestions. There are ways of raising money in addition to pledges. Yard sales, bake sales, and car washes work too if you have the time and energy.

it would be nice if a lot of people stay at the same one so we can see each other before the big hike

Looks like Santa dropped off a gift a bit early -- the STP site (http://www.seekthepeak.org) for 2008 has launched.

I am glad the stp the peak is up and running it makes it feel like it is getting closer.My wife bought me a bunch of hiking gear for christmas so I can't wait to get up there.As soon as I went on line yesterday and seen that stp 08 was running I emailed everybody my web page begging for $$$.
