    The last few days of steady winds on the summit helped push the average to 24.1 MPH. With a guess of 24 MPH, the winner for August is Snow Miser!!!! Congrats on your win.

While in school in VT, I had the opportunity my first weekend of school to take a trip to the summit via the Auto Road. It was the first time I was on the summit. It was an absolute blast. A month later, a group of friends and I hiked up to the summit of the Mt. Washington. I don't remember the trails we took, but it was a great experience. After one year at Lyndon, I returned back home to CT to continue my schooling as things in life occurred. I returned back to the summit with a friend from high school in 99. It was the first weekend the auto road was open. Little did I know that I would move to Pittsburgh, PA soon after that trip. After 11 years, I got to go back to the summit again and thoroughly enjoyed myself again. This time, with my parents and my wife. They, however, did not enjoy the ride up. The entire ride up, I was clicking pictures and pointing things out and all they kept saying was, we're going to go over the edge. My dad made me drive back down the Mountain. I was going to school in VT to study meteorology. I had wanted to do an internship on MW when I got far enough long in school, but like I said things happened and I didn't continue along that career path. Hope that gives you a little bit about me

    I had a feeling it couldn't be just that simple so I gave a narrative instead. My name is Tom No longer the nameless one.
