Last night’s Get Out More Tour presentation by Sheri and Randy Propster was a lot of fun. A quick thank you to both of them for letting me participate. I took more notes on all the gear that I need to update in my kit… so many new things to see, it really was impressive. Sheri and Randy were even nice enough to let me try out a few things on tomorrow’s hike, I can’t wait for that!
I’ve included a video clip of their talk about the inReach for those that couldn’t make it.
I’m working with the Mt Washington Observatory team to pass out PN-60w & inReach devices to 10 different groups and individuals who are getting ready to climb Mt Washington tomorrow. You can watch them start their hike in the morning between 6am and 9am with everyone finishing up around 5pm. It will be great to see all those hikers approaching the summit from different trails. Sheri and Randy will be showing off the climb at their Get Out More Tour booth at the after party too. People can check it out and send a message to hikers still on the climb. Here’s the link to the Seek the Peak MapShare page.
I will be carrying the inReach labeled Team DeLorme 1 tomorrow so feel free to send me a message. For people on the hike, I have a few small prizes in my pack if you mention that you read this blog… look for the group of hikers wearing the DeLorme hats!
Send a message to any of the hikers and wish them well. The profile from Topo North America sets the elevation gain at 4,350 feet from the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center to the Mt Washington Observatory. That’s a pretty significant climb that will get everyone’s attention! A word of encouragement always helps…
We hope to hear from you while we’re on the climb. Now get outdoors!
