Weekender, you bet! on 06/11/2007 19:55:43 MDT Print View

Starting first weekend in July will be attempting to get out every weekend backpacking in N.H. & ME through the last weekend in November for a total of 25 consecutive weekends. Planning on starting out with a SUL load and eventually changing to UL sometime around mid September. Most of the terrain will on the AT in northern New England where colder temps move in quick, usually snowfall by 2nd weekend in October. First season attempting SUL and really looking forward to this type of travel.
Last year was able to pull off 19 back to back weekend trips, but it just wasn’t enough.

So, anyone else doing anything nutty?

Sure .... I bet an awful lot of us will spent a majority of weekends in town, what's nuttier than that?
