Hi, Anna,
I'm thinking about doing S/T, but from the north side (Brown's Lake). You ever done it from that side? Joe from the North Country

Yeah, You're probably right. I keep forgetting about the long hike in, unless you 4-Wheel it in over Antero's shoulder and start from the lake, which you can't do in winter anyway. Guess I'll save that one (two) for a milder season. BTW, there are some great TRs on that north route. If you want a partner to try them with sometime this summer, let me know. Thanks. Joe

I may join for this. What time is your group looking to start hiking and from which TH?

Um... without a TeeVee how do you know what you're supposed to think, feel, believe, et cetera?

Anybody know the snow conditions of Shavano? Is a summit ski descent out of the question?

I am parked at the junction of Forest Roads 250 and 252, 2WD vehicles should have no prob making it up this far. Meet here and caravan up and beyond in 4WD/AWD vehicles? You'll find me here asleep in the back of mine strewn with beer cans and Neil Young blasting until my battery dies...

In a blue Honda CR-V, and listening to Britpop 80's Smiths now. Pre-hike evening tune selection is CRITICAL...

It's all about the music. Because of your post I turned on some Smiths for the first time in probably a decade. Hatful of Hollow. Great record.

I implore you to put Louder Than Bombs on your playlist, I was a confused young kid once, stranded in the wilderness with my parents' Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel LP records, then one day my brother gives me this cassette and blows my mind... I have yet to recover from that

Louder Than Bombs. I have it on vinyl without a player. I haven't yet replaced all of my albums from those forlorn days of youth. Loulder Than has eight or nine songs that are also on Hatful of Hollow. Marr's guitar work is unreal. Both records are classics.

Good luck to everyone climbing this weekend. Conditions look difficult to say the best. Should be a lot of fun! My apologies for the thread hijak. :D

No apology needed. Let's turn this thread into a 200 post thread on the finer points of Northern England post-punk, new-wave, and "Madchester" scene.

In other news, myself and 2 others of the 7 who attempted turned back without summiting.

Darin, Anna, Jeff, Kevin please post you made it down and got home safe.
