    Put away the smell-o-vision helmet! I'm Back!

    I did a 2 mile loop up in Grafton, NH yesterday.

    Ahhhhhhhh.....the smell of pine filled the air.
    It was wonderful getting back out there. The only
    problem believe it or not was my legs. My shoulder
    felt fine. My legs aren't used to humping it. Tuesday
    I'm gonna go for a bit more and do the Mt.Welch/Mt.Dicky
    loop in Waterville Valley. Two summits....not that hard.
    Lets give these legs a little more of a work out!

    Default Welch/Dickey

    Glad to hear you're back out there! You're going to love Welch/Dickey. From the summit of Mount Dickey look northeast toward Mount Tecumseh, you will see another plateau with some cairns a short distance away. The hike over to this is worth it as it is not generally visited by the throngs that usually clog the trails on this loop. Looking north from this spot offers a great view of Franconia Ridge. Enjoy!

    Joey, nice to hear you are back and getting the legs going. My legs, hands, arms, back are all a bit sore right now. 2 days of waterskiing in the morning - hauling rocks, moving a pile a loam and other incidental chores. Time to get back to work with this view ...

    OK......it's 8:15am.
    Here I come Mt. Welch/Dickey.
    First climb since my operation.

    Let's see how these old stumps of mine hold out.
    4 1/2 mile loop shouldn't be too hard. I have plenty
    of Tylenol for the next few dayz too.

    Default I Really Tried!

    Well......I tried to do the whole loop. I just couldn't. My shoulder and legs were not happy with what I was doing. I guess I am kind of rushing things. The doc's did say I have a total of 17 weeks before I'm completely healed. It's only been 11 weeks since the surgery. But I was happy to have done what I did yesterday. Hey....I'm trying!

    Howdy!

    Just signed up for the forum today. How I missed this BB all the years I've been visiting the MWO website I don't know.

    I'm an exiled Nutmegger. Was born there and lived in the Constitution State for 43 years. Now stuck in the Deep South among rolling sand hills. The highest point in this state is Woodall "Mountain" which towers over the landscape at 806 feet.

    Re The Rockpile, I climbed Mt. Washington eight times between 1963 and 1990. Just about every approach. Most fun was starting in Crawford Notch. Climbed to all the New England high points, even an incredibly strenuous trek to Rhode Island's roof back in 1979, when (before the trouble started and which has mercifully ended) it was a scamper through the woods .

    Anyway, just saying hello, have a few photos I might share of the various climbs throughout the NE, and a hearty thank you for making this site available. We exiles appreciate being able to see and read about what's happening on Misery Hill.

    Take care,

    Mak.
    Why did I climb the mountain? Because I was there.
