I'm going for my first trip on July 31. We have a group of guys from my church. We are taking a short hike on Friday, then a long round trip hike to the summit and back on Saturday. I think that we are taking Tuckerman's ravine. This is my first time ever hiking a mountain. I think that I am physically fit enough to make it and smart enough to turn around if I'm not. What sort of advice would you all give a first timer?
