Bed Available in Condo(updated 8/11)
Jean Trousdale passes along a note from Oklahoma writer Larry Floyd who has written about the club in Oklahoma publications. He has a queen size bed available in a condo near Purity Springs for $175/night for Friday and Saturday nights. You can reach him at 405-842-4223

I am a latecomer to signing up for the Hipointer convention in NH this year. Has anyone contacted you re: sharing a cabin with other conventioneers? I am interested in sharing and willing to contact anyone who has listed their name and contact info.
You may also pass my name/contact info along to anyone.

Greetings,
We will be attending the NH 2005 convention in a couple of weeks. I’ll be taking the cog railway to the summit of Mt. Washington with our 5-year old daughter. My wife wants to hike up and if possible, take the cog railway back down with us (if the railway is full, she is willing to hike back down). In any case, she is interested to know if any other highpointers are hiking up and if so, where are they meeting? What time are they leaving? What trails do they think they will use? Any other pertinent info on this would be appreciated. If you can get us an answer on this or direct us to a more appropriate website or chat room that would be greatly appreciated as well. Thanks!

Croydon Peak Visit - September 2 - 10 a.m - Directions (updated 8/8)

I have spoken with the landowners and finalized the details for the Croyodn climb. It is set for Friday, September 2nd at 10:00am. Everyone will meet at the clubhouse on the preserve to sign waivers of liability and to fork over $50 per person (cash only). The hike itself will be about 2-3 miles RT, so it shouldn’t take more than an hour after the preliminaries are taken care of.

The directions to the clubhouse are as follows:

1. Exit 13 off I-89 for NH-10
2. S on 10 for ~6 miles
3. R on Croydon Brook Rd. (sign for Croydon Flats)
4. Take 2nd R on Central Station Rd.
5. proceed 2 miles to a gree gate, which should be open (I have the code, and will be present to make sure the gate is open) 6. Everyone will meet at the clubhouse

For anyone interested in the Presidential Range hike on Friday, 2 September, please arrive at the Appalachia parking lot on Rt. 2 about 8 miles W of Gorham, NH, at 4 am, so that we can take a couple of hours to spot cars at the Cog RR base (for those who wish to hike only the northern 3 or 4 peaks) and Crawford Notch (for those who wish to hike the entire range). The full range hike could take anywhere from 10 to 15 or more hours, so it is unlikely you will get back to Purity Spring Resort in time for the Ice Cream Social and Brian Fowler’s “Old Man” talk, unless you are a speedy hiker.

I'm also interested in hiking up to Mt. Washington. Was considering Tuckerman's Ravine. Perhaps the Club is putting something together on this?
