    Chris.
    It is usually a few months before the event but I'm not sure of the exact date.

    Default Great Idea!

    Hi Chris,

    Hiking for Seek-the-Peak on your first trip up MW is a great idea! The support between the Seek-the-Peak'ers is fantastic, and there are so many of us out on the trails that day! And of course, we think it's a very worthwhile cause. We look forward to meeting you (if we don't run into you on another trail before then!!)

    Hi Tim & Val, I look forward to meeting up with you oneday. I went and got the book you recommended Not Without Peril and it is a very interesting book I am about half done with it. I have to admit after reading some of the stories alot of people took risk way back then. I am going out today and start buying some of the hiking gear I need. I have already lined up a few people to pledge me and my sister works for a large co. and she is going to bring the pledge sheet to work to try to get some pledges. I run a welding supply store and I plan on making a counter display to get some $$$. Hey whatever it takes.Have a nice weekend.

    Just to add another vote of confidence... StP 07 was my first climb up MW. In fact it was my first hike to a summit ever! Now I can't wait to go back and start hitting more of the trails. It was truly a well run event and the people are just amazing.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence.I have started buying some gear I need and just can't wait to get it all but some of it is expensive so I am buying a couple things at a time.My wife wants me to wait because the kids can buy me stuff for christmas but I would like to start heading up to NH and try to get some trails in this year to get a little better in shape for MW. I cannot wait till next July it is like waiting for christmas. I have alway wanted to hike up MW. I have been going to the summit cams every morning at my desk for the past 10-12 years (and dreaming).I have always told my wife when I finnaly kick the bucket to spread my ashes on the summit. I am alittle obsessed with that mountain. Sorry here I go again blabing on. Have a nice night everybody

    Chris
