    Something on the east side. Depending on the weather and my hiking party either Tucks, Lion Head or Huntington.

    I'm planning to go up lions head and down Tucks just because last year I did it in reverse and I'm staying at Joe Dodge Lodge.

    We seldom make plans this far in advance, but some of the things we've been tossing around are: Chances are we'll have 2 cars, in which case we'll leave one in Pinkham Friday night and drive to Marshfiled Station in the morning, climb Ammo and descend Tuck's or LH, pick up car at Marshfield Sunday morning.

    #2 I'd like to do Huntington but Jude's not interested and I won't take Emma again, too tough on her. If some were interested in this I would consider it.

    The AMC White Mountain Guide considers it the most difficult maintained trail in the Whites. It kicks my a__ every time. If you're afraid of heights or you're not quite sure how you'd be on them, it's not the trail for you. There is a lot of scrambling and hand over hand climbing. Not a consideration if there is any chance of rain.

    Boott Spur: Longer, but somewhat easier and definitely less crowded with awesome views of Tuckerman Ravine, (assuming you can see anything that day.)
