 FOT48 2016
Guess they announced it early this year. Flags this year is on September 11, and sign-ups are on August 8th at 6 PM. I know I'm the first to announce this year's Flags, but... after last year, though, someone else should get us a peak :wink: .

Since this was mentioned a few days ago on one of the FB hiking pages I expect this year's event to be a circus. Yet, in the spirit in which this event was started, I hope to continue contributing in my way by getting a peak for my team.

Again, I hope to see fellow Hike-NH-ers on their peak, but regardless I wish you well and send positive vibes for good weather, healthy and energetic hikers and a humble representation of all that we stand for here on this forum.

It has come up in years past too on those groups. Though I have left most of them, too much circus ;)

I plan to attend as well. Hoorray for Sunday, means a few more people might be able to come this year!

Presently, I am unsure where my crew of misfits will be heading. Perhaps a tandem peak with the hike-Nh group??? Brian did not like my choice last year so maybe I'll let him decide.

Know anyone who could make that happen? :wink: I vote for the Tripyramids via the slides.

Hope it doesn't rain, or it will be like Flume in 2013 (which, by the way, fell on a Sunday, so we could go!).

I should really write a TR from that hike last month... the slide is actually really nice. The trail above the slide in the woods is insanely steep, and a bushwhack for short stretches.

 Re: FOT48 2016
Soooo... signups are next Monday (August 8th). When the heck did we reach the end of July? Isn't it still like February?

Anyway, unless someone else wants to, I should be able to take care of this. Any requests to lean towards if available? Or any nays? I'm assuming no Lincoln Woods trail again :D

No big preferences here. wooded humps and the Linwood's "trail" are off my list. I believe Kris doesn't want a 16 mile hike. IIRC people want out of the pemi.

 Re: FOT48 2016
I'm down for anything, but my top picks would have to be Jackson, Moosilauke, Moriah, and Cabot.

 Re: FOT48 2016
If we still considering a tandem peak with SilentCal (I'm all for it) I wouldn't mind Passaconaway/Whiteface or the Tripyramids. If not I'd still like Passaconaway or maybe Field with a stop by Avalon, or East Osceola (being selfish, but my views were socked in on those :) ). Cabot I guess if the group does, although the longer drive to that one would make for a long day and less of an after party, especially considering it's a Sunday.

You are correct, sir. 8)

Whiteface/Passaconaway are not really "tandem" peaks given that they are separated by more than 2 miles (just wanted to point that out). Osceolas or Tripyramids would be good, ditto for Willey Range.
