I think we settled on the Loon picnic area on the Kanc for festivities (weather pending), but correct me if I'm wrong.

I see there is a good weather route and a bad weather route. Should we be planning a car spot? Or will it be a road walk back to the cars.
As you can see, I am thinking of my stomach.

I'd say we meet at the Skook TH (right off Rt.3 just as you leave I-93 North of the notch) at the appointed time. It's a short drive to the Greenleaf TH from there, and we can then drive back to the rest of the cars after the hike so we get to the tailgating sooner :)

I was wondering, does our decided-upon tailgating area have a pavilion/roof? Or options in the area in case there are some evening showers? (I'm hoping for a nice weekend myself after 2 ruined weekends in a row).

That sounds like a good idea Matt. If it's a garbage day just park at the tram lot.

The only "pavilion" I can think of is the men's room at Lin woods. So far. The weather channel app says a high of 61 and a low of 39 mostly sunny at twin mountain. The loon mountain spot looks as good as any spot. The Lafayette picnic area seems like a good spot and easier for others from other peaks to meet up at.

The tunnel under 93 would make a nice "pavillion", although the smoke pouring out might raise some eyebrows! :D

So this is confusing. Is the tailgate at Loon picnic area or at Lafayette picnic area? I know the general area of both but have not visited either. I'll bring some kind of dessert and some bean salad as it sounds like we have a lot of meat! (Yummm...)

I have one of those 10x10 tarp tent things that we could potentially use for shelter. Or I could bring a big tarp and we can just tie it up between a few car if needed.

I'm more than willing to tailgate in the rain but I'll just throw it out there that the Woodstock Inn and Brewery would make an excellent pavillion also if it definitely looks like rain. At the moment the weather I've seen looks good so cross our collective fingers that it holds. Some views would be nice this year!

You don't think they'd roll out the red carpet for us? Maybe a corporate sponsership of the Hike-NH FOT48 afterparty? :)

So, 3 folks have now asked. I don't know/care, so:

Are we going to the Loon place or Lafayette Place?

I too am hoping the good weather comes our way. Some forecasts have had a small talk of evening showers possible, but that comes and goes hourly. Figured I'd ponder contingencies. Tying off a tarp or two at either picnic area should be manageable. We ought to have plenty of rope ;) I'll bring my tarp too.

Unfortunately, my pavilion is going to be the roof over the Burlington Post Office! Hope you all have a great hike and don't get rained on!

Soooo, the distal phalanx of my right big toe is broken into "6 or 7 pieces". Any hiking I'm doing is going to be slow and awkward and probably negligent, but I don't think I'd be going against Dr's orders. I was pretty vague about my intentions though. Gonna have to wait and see on this, but I might be able to get away with wearing a shanked mountaineering boot.

If I do make it I don't think I can be counted on to be part of the group as I have no idea what my pace would be.

That sucks worse. Hope you got in that calendar year round you were eyeing already. I hear tailgating and drinking some cold beverages is an effective way to numb the pain. :D

As for the tailgate, I don't know if it was ever decided, so I'll throw out Loon as the spot with Lin-Woods as the back-up just in case Lafayette place parking is overflowing with hikers. If anyone objects speak now, or go grill by yourself at Lafayette Place.
