I have decided to postpone my journey up Mount Hunger... Vermont had some early snowfall last week and I am worried about hiking conditions up there. (Mount Mansfield had 3-foot drifts on top!) To quote my dear friend Robin Simon: I may be crazy but I'm not stupid.
So instead, I will hike in Massachussetts... joined by Stacey (http://climbing4health.com) , Chris' cousin and fellow Kili hiker. We have our sandwiches (and gloves!) made for the six-hour hike.
