Ok I'm absolutely in for the whole weekend. I changed my post above to reflect that I got Sunday off so I don't have any tricky time constraints. To say the least, I am very excited for this weekend and I owe Bryce a ton of thanks for pulling up my slack and taking some initiative after bailing on my own thread--as well as everyone else, thanks for making this happen.
@Philip- I've sent you a PM about carpooling together. I live pretty close to the Malden T stop and so it'd be very easy for me to meet you there. Also I'd like to try out your duomid, if possible.
@Steven- bought the pants from me or from Tent City? The epic rain pants or not rain pants? I'll stop picking your brain. But we're probably gonna get someone for the holiday season, though it'd be only temporary. If you're interested an app wouldn't hurt at all. Also if I can't get a ride with Philip I'd like to hop in your car with your dog.
@SETH I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU GOT YOUR HANDS ON A FLEXTREK 37,000,000,000,000. Incredible. I thought about bragging this weekend but--like we all eventually will--I admit defeat. How do you like the Nitro-Hyper-Flex Enforcement© Construction?
And that iPhone app sounds great. I hope they have it for android, too. Good thing we have our phones, no chance of getting lost then. I hear that when Steve Climber doesn't take his Flextrek, he goes out with just a speedo, an intimacy kit, his iphone, and a compass.
What does everyone think about bringing gear to the trailhead to have a small gearswap? We did it in California earlier this year and it was casual and I got a cool Outsak out of it for just $20 (thanks Jay) and a sweet Alpaca beanie as well (thanks Kat). I know I definitely have some gear I'm willing to swap. Also, good news about that weather, hopefully it's more pleasant than it has been today. Oh and, TWO DAYS!
