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


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

We are thinking about hiking the Welch-Dicky Trail, which is 4.4 miles and is described by those in the know as "The best view for the least effort." We have all day to hike it and can take as much time as we want, have lunch on top, and most importantly, we can all enjoy it together, and promote a more Warm and Fuzzy spirit. Totally a bonus.


Apparently there's a swimming hole behind the police station... we'll find a better one
