    I will be up during your edutrip but not as a guest but as one of the observers. And if you decide to stay up and pester the night observer, I will be that person as well. Hope the weather works out well for your trip. I will try my best to forecast something good.

    I'll be one of the volunteers that week. I haven't been to the summit for too many years. Spent at lot of time in the northern Presidentials during my college years. Fortunately for the crew, I have been doing a lot of cooking. Really looking forward to my week. Maybe some meteors, a full moon, and the bike race all in the same week. What luck!

    Talking

    Oh! Those trips look awesome! The winter ones are really interesting looking, but I'm not very sure of myself on ice on the flat parts of Boston so I don't think I would do well on the summit in a storm. The summer ones though...might have to do my birthday up there next year

    Have fun, storygirll. Don't forget to bring a tripod if you have one to take great pictures for us to look at!

    Talking re: my state of mind

    Thanks everyone!!!

    I love sharing with this group.
    We're all different and yet still on the same page.

    CALM . . . calm . . . calm.
    Breathing - now under control.
    Yeah, right.
    Smiling ear-to-ear .

    "Good weather" = wild storms or clear night skies - either works for me!
    Ryan - I just might learn to drink coffee again to stay awake.
    Do I need to bring anything? . . . cookies . . . whoopie pies . . . cheesecake?
    Ohhhh . . . for a nice sunrise. Now I'm just being greedy.

    Photos would be a nice "perk".
    I will need someone to get a couple of shots of me reading in unlikely places for my elementary school students.
    Mrs. T. is reading where???

    Busy weekend - chat again on Tues.
    (If I can stay away).

    Good that you are flexible on your definition of "good weather." I am banned from saying those words on the radio stations now because people were complaining (and by "people" I mean one or two people but since it is radio, we have to go with the lowest common denominator).

    You don't have to drink coffee, some people are so pumped to be up here, they stay up naturally.

    As for bringing anything to eat up, that is up to you. We will eat just about anything sweet or otherwise. I would say cookies or something solid since that is easier to pack than a pie. But if you decide to bring something, it does need to be made prior to coming up as Edutrippers are not encouraged (or allowed for the most part) to cook or bake while up here for safety reasons plus it distracts from the educational aspect of the trip.

    I'm going to be too excited.

    Seriously, thank you for the tip.
    It was a good one.
    I never would have remembered ear plugs.

    I remember laying there the first night, looking out the window thinking, I am sleeping on the summit of Mt. Washington! It was a dream come true. Spending a week on my mountain was an awesome experience and I can't wait for my next opportunity.

    Is there really any BAD weather???
