My best wishes to everyone too! For a safe and enjoyable hike! Wish we could join you, but we'll be comin' up anyway on Aug 1. I hope to get a chance to keep an eye on the webcam. Last year I got to see Emma stroll out onto the deck before Kevin and Judy came into frame.
"LIVE FREE OR DIE...DEATH IS NOT THE WORST OF ALL EVILS." Gen. John Stark. "by reason of much foule weather and Extreme Bad Woods to travel in..." From the letter of my Great Uncle, Samuel Willard (accompanied by my grandfather Henry), to Governor Dummer on August 16, 1725, explaining the reason for his return, being instructed to "range all the country", of the Wawobadenik (White Mountains) July 19-August 16, 1725. I am a 13th generation New Englander and proud of it.
