    Smile New psycological term

    Wow I learned what I have been suffering from. P.W.M.D. I even know how to cure it but only problem is I can't get my hands on any Tucks 6288 stout.
    I think we might need to start a support group for this. Hi my name is Rex and I suffer from P.W.M.D.

    We brought a couple of six packs of Tuckerman's IPA back for just this purpose but it isn't quite doing the job. Need - to - get - back - to - the - mountains.

    Rex... Pssssst.... Don't tell anyone, but I was able to score some 6288 on my way out of town. 8 bottle are sitting in my fridge right now. (Along with some Headwall Alt and a growler of Moat's weiss!) Had to stop in several package stores. One said that they stopped carrying it because people would switch the bottles around into the cheaper Tucks package.

    Default Cannon anyone?

    What if we do Cannon? That way our forum friends that can't hike for what ever reason can ride up if they want to participate. Perhaps, Kinsman Ridge trail from the tram? A nice steady climb, and the easiest way to the summit... not counting the tram car.

    Once this is decided, then discuss the beer.


    (psssst- I have 3 cases of Tuckermans sitting in my basement. Like I said, hit the NH liquor store before you leave the state!)

    I've never climbed Cannon, either.

    I remember doing it as a kid - 5,000 switchbacks.

    Cannon was the first 4k that we ever did (via Kinsman Ridge). We took the easy way and took the tram down so it's not on my official 4k list yet. I'd love to do it again.

    Cannon hadn't been on my radar. If that's the group consensus, then we're good with it!

    If the weather is clear (*disclaimer: see our very cloudy pics from the last two years) we should be able to see the flags on Lafayette, Lincoln, Liberty and perhaps N&S Kinsman and Moosilauke. That would be great!

    Also, for those that wanted to make more of a trip out of it, there are paths up Cannon that could be multi-day, overnight or day trips.

    You guys talked about Kinsman Ridge Trail from the tram. That is probably not my preferred route to the top. I'd be more likely to go up via Lonesome Lake or else spend the night at Kinsman Shelter, then go over the Cannon-balls or something similar. I'm not into that 1800-feet-in-1.5-miles walking. Uuuugh!!

    For those who wanted even more challenge (i.e. Rex!!), the trail from Rt 112 offers some overnight options at Eliza Brook and also Kinsman Pond.

    Maybe we will end up in sub-groups who meet at the summit for the flag-raising. I'm open to ideas. Let us know what you think!

    I am with you! All I could find down here is some Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. It is the closest thing to the Whites so I downed a six pack and it helped but the depression is back again.
