I just signed up for this forum and look forward to participating.

My family and friends think I have an emotional attachment to Mt Washington and they are right. When at summer camp in NH as a child there was an "Honors Hike Squad" which climbed Mt Washington each summer. At age 12 or 13 I made it on the squad and have been on the trails ever since.

When we moved into our cabin in Maine in 1991 we started up a Guest Book which is fun to go back through. But, flip it over and at the back of the book are the special pages recording Mt Washington hikes - date - who went - and what the trails were used.

Several of my photos have been posted on the MWO site over the past couple of years. It is nice to see an official forum set up for us. Thanks Jake!
