Note: this page in flux, due to continued planning efforts.

Camping trip to the white mountains is planned for Sep 23-25 2006. We will be staying in Intervale cabin.

Exciting Adventures are to be had:

  • Having a picknic dinner on Cathederal Ledge, Watching as the sun sets behind us and the valley falls into the shadow (of death).
  • Hiking somewhere in the whites. Possibly Welch Dickie trail, or something more rigorous.
  • Swimming in freakin freezing mountain streams
  • Stargazing, marshmallow roasting action
  • Beating up whoever snores

Cost

The following is a description of how I [Darth Bader] arrived at an estimated cost of the trip.

2 rental minivans for ~$420 (this price goes down if we return them before 6 on Monday.) I'm estimating gas cost at $100 but it may be more.

GRT budget pays for 200 of this cost. remaining cost split between 14 people for ~22.85

Intervale cabin costs $100 per night (but we don't have to pay for campgrounds and Mitoc equipment.)

Of this $200, GRT pays for $50. The remaining $150 gets split between 16 people (iJenn and Rodrigo are driving separately.) Estimated 9.40 per person.

Total estimated cost $32.25 per person
