 Re: Trip suggestions for first winter summit
One more thing GG, while you've got your dictionary out, why don't you look up "Average"

If the average temp is 33, and the average wind speed is 35, then the average windchill temp is probably around 18. How cold does it have to be to qualify as a GraniteGuy-approved winter?

Anyway, if the AVERAGE is 18, then that means for every minute of the day that it felt like 28, there was another minute of the day that felt like 8. And if at any time the temps felt like 38, as you're suggesting it did, then that means there was a corresponding moment where the temps felt like -2.

 Re: Trip suggestions for first winter summit
I'm changing the channel on this episode of the Granite Guy Show. Tuning you out like I should have done and everyone else has already done. You keep asking what you need to accomplish to prove yourself to us. You don't need to do that to me or anyone else here. We are actually a very easy going group until someone starts calling anyone and everyone condescending elitists, and we accept people of all experience levels openly. The only one you need to prove anything to is yourself. So good luck with the Franconia Ridge loop this Sunday. It's a pretty good proving ground for you and your winter hiking abilities. Help out the hiking community and post a report. Comment on others who do. Give back some info and insight to anyone who wants it. That is what the place is all about. Not this slop we've been tossing around for the last few pages.

 Re: Trip suggestions for first winter summit
This has to be the most ridiculous rant ever. ave you read this back to yourself?

BrianL:

On the contrary Gibba, I believe my advice is extra-relevant since I'm in virtually the exact same place as the OP in terms of hiking experience. I feel like as a comparable hiker, I'm uniquely qualified to comment on what would be an epic boring waste of time, and what would be an entertaining challenge. You and GG have been there, done that, and seen it all, so how could your opinion ever be relevant?


If you started a new job would you rely on the advice from someone who who got hired at the same time as you or someone who has been there for 10 years? Following your logic you would follow the guy who had gotten hired at the same time and had been taken aside asking whats wrong with you? You are uniquely qualified to give advice to hike a bunch of 4ks that have nothing to do with winter.

The difference between the Mt. Tecumseh trail and the Huntington ravine trail are so stark. You still haven't addressed this.

Tecumseh goes up this



Huntington goes up the Ravine to the right here.



quite a bit of difference

I'm not sure where the headlamp thing came from. You should have one on you just because *poop* happens or because ... fun happens. The woods don't change, only your perception.

The Condescending aspect eludes me. Everyone here has tried to be helpful to the OP. Cautionary advice is warranted since we don't know the OP from a hole in the wall. Perhaps not everyone is a type A douche like you. Perhaps you don't know what you don't know. (this is actually expected) You may need to change your poker face because you aren't reading anyone here correctly. It is best that you fold.

Edited to fix one of the pictures. I had made it too small so i made it bigger and highlighted the area in question.

Seriously, enough is enough already. Can we all put our dicks away for a minute and just stick to the topic at hand.

CM I hope you're still here! This is not the usual style of discussion here! Good luck with whatever you choose.

 Re: Trip suggestions for first winter summit
The OP seemed to be thankful. His weekend plans stand to be pretty good. Saturday looks like junk though. Perhaps they will do Tecumseh. A great peak on a cloudy day. Snow falling on ones shoulders. Ahhhhhh....

 Re: Trip suggestions for first winter summit
@CM_wright If you're still reading, I recommend you juggle your stuff so you can get out on Sunday instead of Saturday.

Liberty/Flume and Pierce/Jackson are both solid plans. But be flexible. You'll have a really good look at Eisenhower from the top of Pierce, and you should give some strong consideration to changing course if it looks good. The approach to the summit is a ZILLION times more fun.

If you do decide that Pierce/Jackson is your combo, I'd recommend adding a couple extra miles and grabbing Webster while you're there. It's not a 4k, and it's summit is probably comparable to Tecumseh. But bagging it now means that if you ever want to do the 52WAV list, you won't have to make a return trip just for that peak.
