I just want to say Thank You to all the experienced hikers etc on this board that take time to answer my queries. I searched for a forum/board and couldn't find one was any good till this one. You guys know what you're talking about! I'm too far south to know the day to day conditions up there, but you guys always come through and are spot on with advice/trail conditions and seem to really know what's up. I love that you'll call out an inexperienced hiker who might be getting in over their heads, as well as share the everyday stories and photos. I always know that I can get some kind of answer when I post, good or bad, but always honest. I appreciate your feedback. I feel better having real time trail reports and opinions from someone who knows what they are doing than trying to read between the lines in the guide books and so so posts in other spots. Just wanted to give my three thumbs up to you regulars! Thank you.
It is very nice of you to post your comments and feedback. There is quite a mixture of folks and talent here. And as you say, they have a lot of experience and are extremely helpful.
Glad you are finding our forums useful for information. Always glad to hear they are of some use.

The first is our weather page (http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/) weather observations are updated hourly, forecasts and climo daily and our weather wall (http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/conditions.php) every 15 minutes (but you have to hit refresh). Next up are the webcams (http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/cam/) which update you with pics every 15 minutes in the day time (and on fully moon nights). And our observer comments (http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/comments/) which we try to update daily. And if you are a member (http://www.mountwashington.org/accou...r%2Fobscast%2F), you get videos daily from our webcams and a video blog once a week (Mondays). Just some of the ways where you can stay connected even when your away. These are how my parents and friends in CA stay in touch with the conditons I am working and living in.
