    Default Looking for a hiking/backpacking partner this weeekend

    I am heading out Friday morning to do some hiking on the Appalachian Trail and coming back Saturday. I will be going to Andover Maine and hiking the AT from Surplus Pond to Hall Mountain Lean-to and spending the night Friday night at the lean-to and come back Saturday.

    If anyone is interested in coming along please let me know. I sure would appreciate the company. I can pick you within a reasonable distance or work on carpooling or anything else.

    I'd like to go but I'm sure I'd slow you down way too much.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    We do not have to hike together. We can just meet at the shelter if your that worried. Besides your not going to slow me down I am way out of shape. It is only a four mile hike to the shelter anyways.

    Your making it sound more intriguing. I'll have to say no at this time. I'm just not prepared.

    Rick,

    I was considering it but looks like I am going to have to babysit.

    No problem Rob, If no one takes me up on this I have another plan of attack. I will not turning this into an over niter at the lean-to. Seeing that this was basically a scouting mission for my section of the Appalachian Trail to see if I need to do any maintenance I will just cancel the night at the lean-to. Instead I will carry my chain saw in with me all the way to the lean-to tomorrow morning and do what needs to be done (hopefully not much) and carry everything all the way back out. That will turn it into a eight mile trip instead of four each day. Then I will camp at Surplus Pond where my truck is parked, which is a very secluded pond that you drive drive down logging roads to get to.

    If anyone wants to make it a one day trip and just walk with me for eight miles we can do that too. I will be leaving tomorrow morning sometime.

    This rain screwed everything up and now I think I will just stay home today.

    I am going to head up in the morning for the day if the weather is good. I really wanted to go today and come back in time for the Delorme event tomorrow but the weather screwed that up. I just got back from purchasing a smaller chain saw. The big Stihl I have was just to big to be carrying four miles in and four miles out. I bought a smaller Stihl.
