    Heading there in a bit. I'll be in a black wrangler looking...lost. Almost like I've never been more than 5 miles from my apartment ;)

    Catching up... So since Midnight Sun (and any other breweries) closes at 8PM, let's do a quick consensus of either Spenard Roadhouse or Firetap (*note- I believe there's more than one Firetap in the city). That way anyone unable to join us for the hike is aware of where we plan to head after...

      Spenard Roadhouse is usually really busy and a wait for a table. I think we would have better luck with Firetap.

      Firetap it is!

    Oh one more thing, I know that last year in this parking lot, and the parking lot near basher road(there's some more hiking trails there) make sure you lock up your cars and hide things too, there were a lot of reports on these meetup group pages that some people had their cars broken into and items stolen. The parking lot at glenn alps is pretty good, I've never had anything taken out of my car, and I got there a lot, maybe I'm just lucky.

    Also on a different topic, is this group planning anything for Memorial Day? Lots of activities to do here I anchorage, I'm thinking I'll be doing a nice camping trip to eklutna, there's hiking, biking and lots of exploring, might even see some sheep and goats!

      ya, I was going to suggest eklutna for hiking on a trip eventually too, there is kayaking there if you are into that.

      ya, who wants to bike it? I think I want to bike it.

    Ok, I just hiked flattop, I got pretty close to the top, my friend at 200# was walking on it fine, me at 300# kept breaking through the snow so I got much more of a workout. The road down to the overflow lot was still closed, I figured powerline trail would be more clear but I have my doubts. All in all it wasn't bad, I didn't get too wet and muddy. It was REALLY WINDY though, therefore pretty chilly, I recommend wearing at least a sweatshirt like I did today, for those that are more cold natured I recommend dressing in 2-3 layers not counting a tshirt underneath.

    I am not a hiker but would love to join. Should I bring anything in particular for this hike?

      I just bought mine. They are 1 for $40 or 2 for $60, I wish I had known that before hand I could possibly have gotten someone to go in on them with me and we both could have saved money. I didn't want to buy 2 and take a chance on not being able to sell the other but now i'm thinking I should have.

    I probably won't be done with work until 6 so more than likely I won't make it

      Join us at midnight sun!

      As much as I'd like to, I only have a bike and that seems like a jaunt, haha. If anyone plans on leaving later, let me know. I'll be by the airport area.

    From Josh yesterday--

    So, I just checked out the trails a little bit up there. It looks like from glenn alps trail everything is still almost completely snow covered and down below from prospector heights the trails are very very wet. Just loose sloppy mud from what I saw. Should be fun but, it's def not traditional straight up hiking...

    Might bring/wear--Probably at least good hiking boots with grippers of some kind if not used to trekking in snow.
