Please read the entire description before you RSVP to this event.

If you wish to join us, you must RSVP yes so that we know you will be attending. Your RSVP is also acceptance of the Terms and Conditions and Disclaimer below. If your plans change, update your RSVP.

Be sure to bring all of the appropriate clothing, food, water, and equipment (see GEAR section for guidance) and be fully capable of completing the hike so that you do not put yourself and others in the group at risk.

**** OUR PLAN ****

Since the only two people still signed up at this point are coming from an hour south of Plymouth, I am changing the hike to some place in Andover, NH.

Bad weather may cancel. Check back for changes to the plan at least the night before.

Use this link and list to see what you should have for clothing, equipment, and gear - don't come unprepared:
- https://www.outdoors.org/trip-ideas-tips-resources/gear-advice/winter-gear-guide
- Winter hiking boots
- Microspikes
- Snowshoes
- Hat & gloves (2 sets of each)
- Extra clothing layers
- Hiking poles are highly recommended

Be sure to let people back home know where you're going, who you're going with, and when you expect to be back. Please have emergency contact information and any pertinent medical information easily accessible in your pack.

****** TERMS and CONDITIONS ******
We start as a group, hike as a group, and finish as a group. You should always be able to SEE the person behind you and ahead of you. We will stop at all trail junctions until the group is all together and ready to go. If you need to stop, you must notify the group. Please try to limit extra stops by layering up or down, etcetera, when the group takes a break. We should keep the number and length of breaks to a minimum to prevent people from cooling down too much.

Dogs are welcome to join us if they are friendly with other dogs and people, but you must bring a leash in case there are circumstances that require you to leash your dog. PLEASE NOTE that my dog is in heat, so please do not bring any intact male dogs or dogs who will not leave her alone unless you plan to keep him/her leashed the whole hike.
