last year we had a little bit of both. some of us experienced slightly higher water levels than others.


this is just about the terminus of 9 miles. the chasm after this one didn't seem to have an opposite end to it.


at this point it was about a 6' drop to get into the destruction. we couldn't see the opposite side where we would come out at, and that was after walking an 1/8 of a mile into it. the decision to turn around semed to be the logical one!


alternatively if someone who is in the know in regards to the area steps up to the challenge of DS cat herder i just might blindly follow them.

The bike I am bringing this year will get me through that washout that turned us around and the attitude I am bringing will be one that turns bikes back to camp if they start the ride out of tune and out of gas

I like how the Mt. Washington current summit conditions web page thermometer only goes up to 72. That's a real scorcher.

Do you think they designed the thermometer that way on purpose?

Current Summit Conditions



Laconic, hi!

Your comment rang a bell. The temperature at the top of Mount Washington has never been recorded above 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Can you imagine???

Brrrrrrrrrrr

Mount Washington Wikipedia Page.

On January 16, 2004, the summit weather observation registered a temperature of −43.6 °F (−42.0 °C) and sustained winds of 87.5 mph (140.8 km/h), resulting in a wind chill value of −103 °F (−75 °C) at the mountain.[14] During a 71-hour stretch from around 3 p.m. on January 13 to around 2 p.m. on January 16, 2004, the wind chill on the summit never went above −50 °F (−46 °C).[14] Snowstorms at the summit are routine in every month of the year, with snowfall averaging 311 inches (7.9 m) per year. Temperatures above 72 °F (22 °C) at the summit have never been recorded.[15]

Hey, MsLiz. I suspected it was for that reason; hard to imagine, ain't it?

I hope we get a chance to go up, even though I'm from Maine, I've never been...

Yes, he will be missed. If your mate decides not to be such a wanker, come on up. You will be welcomed Merc. You do know Mom's will rent him a bike right? Either in Manchvegas or Foxboro. And they have a huge selection.

Hey guys, I need to pay a bill by Paypal and I sent all the money in there to our checking account a couple of days before it came in. If you could see a way to punch in that payment, I sure would appreciate it! Will save a transfer fee.
