    Just shy of a tank of gas at highway mileages or about 350 miles and about 5 to 6 hours of travel time.
    When you're chewing on life's gristle
    Don't grumble, give a whistle
    And this'll help things turn out for the best. And always look on the bright side of life.

    500 miles, about 9-10 hours drive from WNY.

    Leave on Friday, arrive late at N.Conway, get a bit of rest, climb up Sat morning, down in the afternoon, hang out in N.Conway Sat night, get a good night's rest, leave Sun morning and back at home Sun night.

    I can't think of a better better way to spend my weekend.

    Wow some of you come from a ways away!
    I am from Tilton NH about 70 Miles to the Notch,
    Trail head. Tux to lions head is my most popular way up the Mt.
    I am proud to be a sponser of the Great MWO! and Mt Washington.
    I think the Sunrise and Set video are priceless. VERY NICE JOB!
    Can't wait to STP and am starting to raise money for my sponsership.
    I have a small retail store and have made some nice Hiker Outline stickers
    for $$ to give to STP.
    Thanks for asking the question!!
