Hello, im new to the site. I learned of "seek the peak 2009" after joining here. How much money do you have to raise in order to do the hike? I mean, is there a minimum you have to raise? And can you just donate the money yourself? I have a feeling it will be hard trying to get people i know to donate for a hike. :p

Thanks for the info!

The minimum you need to raise (in order to get your awesome goodie bag) has been $100. You can raise this with friends, family or donate the whole sum yourself.

Last year there were varying "prize" or reward levels depending on how much you raised.

The online donation page will make it very easy to get people to donate online. And this year we may have more tools to help you get support.

Its a great event unlike any other I've participated in. My very first MW hike was StP07. I couldn't stop thinking about the mountain and it was a very long year until StP08. And now I'm counting days until StP09!

Thanks for the response Blue dog. One last question. The event is two days. So i'm assuming you can pick either day to do the hike, correct? Thanks a bunch! I think this is something I'm going to do!

Welcome to the forum and hopefully to STP. Last year was the first STP for my wife and I and our first time to hike up Mt Washington as well. It was an absolutely incredible experience in many ways. We can't wait to do it again this year. Look forward to you joining us!

If you aren't able to make it up for the two days you can always register the morning of the hike also but will say this many of the hikers get on the trail earlier then the registration would be set up in the morning. Also, many of the hikers tend to stay at the area camp grounds and spending the nights there give you a chance to meet some of them. I have hiked the last two years and not sure if I will make it or not this year, all depends on the amount of time I can get off from work. It is a good time and suggest getting involved.
