    Don't think you got a picture of me. I was taking pictures as a volunteer on behalf of the observatory, so was at the summit most of the morning, then got a ride down to the base to help setup, and take more pictures. I'll be posting some pictures shortly, and will include one of me.

    Default flag sitings

    To the forum folks . . .

    Brad
    Charlie
    Kevin, Emma and your wife (sorry, I was so excited - I've forgotten names)
    Mark
    Tim & Val (neighbor)
    Steve

    While hiking along, the site of an American flag on a pack was pretty neat.
    I wouldn't have randomly introduced myself to strangers on a trail but knowing that it was someone from the forum made chatting ok. I am very happy to have met so many of you . Until we meet again - safe and happy hiking.

    Talking forum flags

    The flags were great. Plus, I looked for the neat white MWO hats and t-shirts from this year and prior years. They all gave clues. In addition, I would just ask if someone was a Seek The Peak-er and take a picture. Folks on the trail are always so great to meet and talk to.

    Being more organized and having STP flags would be wonderful.

Actually he kind of liked being online as we were in the car and it might be hard for him to back to the "old way".

    We all know Brad is willing to lug a heavy camera up Mt. Washington, but what surprised me was he *didn't* bring his Thinkpad up the trail. If any of you are wondering, riding in a car while Brad

    -does his conference calls
    -chats with folks on AIM
    -checks the traffic online
    -watches the weather
    -and .. laughs at my goofy waterski technique video on YouTube

    ALL while driving south for 16 hours is in fact fun .. and a little scary.

    By the way, this guy who is close to 30 years my senior showed some beautiful slalom technique the morning after STP Mt. Washington:

    ... and I'm still walking funny - legs don't work .. when does that end?

    Corey, don't worry. When you pass 60 it all gets easier.

    I second that. Storygirl was the first forum person that we met and it was cool to hear "Hey, there's a flag. Forum member?". It was a great idea to suggest this. Glad we got to meet you out there along with so many others. Look forward to seeing you next year.

    Joe,

    I just realized that I replied to storygirl's reply and neglected the fact that this was your post. I was good meeting you at the dinner. Saw you on the trail and didn't realize who you were until later. Next year we'll all know each other (and will only have the many new members that we will hopefully pull in to meet for the first time).
