    I hope you have good weather! My recollection of NS is that the whole place feels sub-alpine, like you're about to pop out above treeline. I expect plenty of pictures and a length trip report when you get back!

    (as for me, I'm counting 21 days until I head to the Adirondacks, and a week later take the bike to the beach and lounge around Martha's Vineyard ... woot!)

    Derailing my own thread!

    Mike, a week in the Daks! Sublime!

    I can't wait to get back up there, toying with this weekend; last minute, I KNOW!

    What trails are you planning on hiking in the Daks?
    Backpacking, Lojing, or tenting at Heart Lake??? (all fine options!)

    I'm so psyched about NS! Now I just need to plan the up and back. Since its a road trip, I may just plan a stop in New Brunswick to do a day hike somewhere on the International Appalachian Trail. And I really, really want to pencil in the Pemi Loop on the way back.


    Oh, yeah, and eating lots of LOBSTAH!

    and drinking beer, of course!

    Night, all!

    Happy hiking dreams....zzzzz.

    My wife's family came from Halifax, NS. Such a nice city on the water. I only went there once for a funeral, but I intend on going back, possibly to do some hiking. Please post pics when you return.

    Have fun!

    Sabrina,
    It's not a whole week - I'm driving up Thursday and coming back Sunday. I and about 30 other hikers will be camping in a friend's enormous yard in Elizabethtown, with a great fire pit, everyone bringing microbrews from their locales, hiking, tons of food, and of course Sunday breakfast out at the Noonmark!

    The hikes are going to be a 111 (115) finish for Audrey & Pat on Marshall, and the other day I can't say yet (bit of a surprise).

    Same thing with the Vineyard - it's only Thursday to Sunday, so once again I don't think I'll have time to tackle the 300-footer list. The biking and beaches and kayaking really win out, anyway.

    Make sure to eat those big giant bugs withOUT a bib!

    weekends

    Your long weekends sound great! What a cool gathering! What a way for the folks finishing thier peaks to remember them; sort of a grand finale!

    I just realized that the summer weekends are drawing to a close and I am kicking myself for not getting more organized this weekend! I really wanted to do a long walk out to Duck Hole in the Adks and loop back around on a section of the Northville Lake Placid Trail, no major peaks but a beautiful backwoods walk! May have to wait until september now!

    So many trails, so few weekends!
    Sigh...

    eat those big giant bugs
    Oh man! Did ya have to call 'em bugs???

    Oooooh, pretty! No problem with that waiting until September, though ... that'll be foliage season and it will only be more spectacular!

    I agree. Independent wealth would be a fine thing to have, or at least enough to swap to 5-day weekends and 2-day work weeks. Hopefully my knees will last all the way to retirement in 35-40 years!

    Heh-heh. This is when I take the body and plop it upright in the middle of my plate, antennae into the air.

    Enjoy the ADk's folks, hard to believe I was just there last week. Should have paced myself on Saturday so I felt like hiking on Saturday although it was good to be home ealy on Sunday for a change.

    After 63 miles of day hikes in TN, CT & NY & other exercising, this weeks 19 miles walking/treadmill & 24.5 miles biking the rail trail has been almost an off-week.
    Happy Trails, be safe & Good Luck
