    Default Dishwasher

    I for one share in the excitement about the new dishwasher. I'll be enjoying the fact that it is now installed while I'm using it instead of elbow grease from 11/21 to 11/28. This means I'll be watching football after Thanksgiving dinner instead of cleaning up by hand. I had enough of that in the military. Thanks Peter, for getting that installed.

    You get to stay up there? I'm jealous.

    How many others are there? Where do you stay? That big building that's open to the public, the one with the museum and gift shop? Must get a tad lonely if it's just you up there all alone. I don't imagine there are many visitors this time of year.

    Incidently, I just read a book about an expedition that spent the winter of 1870 - 1871 on the summit. Sounded epic - ten feet from a red hot stove, a thermometer read 13 degrees, according to the narrative.

    Acrophobe, you can search these forums for other threads on volunteering that have gone into detail. If you are interested, here is a link:

    Thanks for that. Do you stay up there, Mike? If so, what do you think of it? - I've never heard from anyone who actually stays up at the roof of New England. Kinda like meeting a football hero would be for my patriots-obsessed boss.

    Default Summit in winter

    Did you ever see "The Shining"? well, "Here's Johnny!" No, just kidding. It's a lot of fun. There's always at least a crew of four and someone from the State Park, and of course, don't forget Nin. I'll be posting here while I'm doing my stint.

    "Wendy, I'm home!" Sorry, sorry, just kidding. No, really.

    We'll be warmer than the guys in the Signal Corp, too.

    Great comments, videos and pictures. can you correct the URL for the link in the comments section to picture IMG_1909.JPG? It gives a 404 error.

    Ryan, thanks for the fix. The image was worth the trouble of going back and correcting the URL. That is steep!

    Folks, I have seen Zach's "winter hat". It would be fun to post a picture of it here, but it might scare people away. How well does it work in high winds with those ends flapping around?
