    Bucket List item..!

    12 - 4000, footers on one trip... Yahoo...!!

    Warning. This likely will be one of the coldest of the backpacking trips offered by me. We will encounter ice and most likely snow on our trip. No crowds which makes it the best...! 

    A little Pre-Winter Training Anyone...?


    Coming Soon

    Route Description:

    Pace: Slow - Moderate

    Rated:  Advanced

    Stat’s:   Coming Soon

    Day #1

    Day #2

    Day #3

    Day #4

    Day #5

    Pet’s:  Limited space only! With permission from the Organizer.

    Your dog should have responsible human along on the trip. They should understand the physical demands of the hike and have experience and be fit enough to follow. They should also know trail regulations for that hike. It is not the organizers responsibility. Have good etiquette while on the trail.  Have a leash for when you feel frisky. Have some First aid preparedness in case you slip and fall, or try to play with that porcupine again.  Have the food and water available for carbohydrate loading when needed. Provide you some sleeping shelter & blanket to keep you warm and insulated from the ground. Maybe even some doggy clothing like jacket or booties for those cold hikes.

    If your owner doesn't want to carry you gear cause they are lazy don’t let them make you carry more than 25% of your body weight.. It’s not fair..! Remember your toy cause the days are long and the nights can be longer. Remember the sofa is a pretty safe and warm place too..

    Tent Buddy List:

    We can figure that out in the days before the trip or in the parking lot.


    You must have the basic backpacking equipment.

    Some stuff can be borrowed from other’s. Community Gear is available like stove and water filters

    I recommend a comment on the threads below your selected trip for available gear and carpooling etc..

    Look to the gear list listed at our group page.

    Getting There:

    Carpooling options should be posted as a thread on the Meetup Page. Sharing a ride, it’s always more fun!

    Additional Trip Planning & Research:

    I did my research using the Appalachian Mountain Club's "White Mountain Guide", trail maps, and the Internet. You need to become self-reliant by becoming familiar with the route, terrain, and potential hazards since you are ultimately responsible for your own safety.

    Map #


    The White Mountains have notoriously unpredictable weather.. Any weather report is only good for 24 hours... Decision on “go – no – go” will be made 24 – 48 hours before the trip...FYI

    Trip Area Web Links:

    RSVP Fee’s:

    Covers all Camping spots run by the AMC & Partially is a donation to the groups operating cost for the year! Typically $5.00 for below treeline adventures and above treeline will be $10.00 Based on this Organizer....

    Also in any cost will be a PayPal fee’s for collection.

    If you’re a Organizer?

    Please contact me, if you would like to attend. We are willing to waive the donation portion of the fee for being a continued volunteering/organizer of Meetup.

    Why we Charge a Fee? It only gets real truly interested participants to sign up for the trip. Our turnover rates are way too high backpacking trips posted without the fee. High turnover = More work for the organizer. Bit frustrating with greater than 60% at times, cancellation rate. When it free people sometime just don't care. Money separates the bullshit from real folks, looking for that experience outdoors.

    Personally, I really hate to do it.. But many folks have been losing out on the opportunity due to no shows or last minute cancellations & and it only the cost of a cup of coffee and pastry at Starbucks  You can always contact me for more information or to complain. Jay Briscoe

    Post Trip:

    You always should have a clean set of cloths waiting in the car and some cash for some grub for the ride home.

    Please take a moment to review our group. We always like feedback.

    Waiver:  Read !!!

    Hey folks looking like I might have to work on Monday... I need to keep it free to if I need too :-( Peep's like a kitchen to cook there turkeys in....
    Sunday looks like possible rain at all elevations.. Just leaves Sat looking at it this early in the week. But with the Monday most likely having to work I will be cancelling this meetup.. I know bummer this is a loop I have not completely done in one trip. I will be re-posting for next year for sure.. Say Memorial Day Weekend?

    So, I mapped out the loop, miles, vert feet and all. And... by my calc, day one is probably too advanced for me. Combination of # of miles, # of vert feet, dark, ridge, possible ice and the last 4 miles rough from Lafayette to Garfield camp kinda made me re-think it. I'd do it in 3 days in summer, or 4 days in winter i suppose.. Dylan and I may come meet you at the top of Flume and see you through to Liberty for a day loop hike.

    Jay, me and Molly (the dog) might be in, in which case I'll offer my 4-man winter tent. As you know Baha and I did Bondcliff - North Twin so I'm familiar with the area. I've been anxious to do something big so this may be it. I'll get back to you all.
