==WHAT WE'RE DOING==

The plan is to hike to one of the 4,000 foot peaks in Maine - Old Speck. We will use the AT on this out and back hike.

If you are interested in participating in this event sign up for the waiting list and answer the question that is part of the RSVP process.

- RSVPs close 24 hours before the event.
- The maximum group size will be 7 people.
- Guests aren't permitted.
- Dogs are only permitted with prior approval.

We start as a group, hike as a group, and finish as a group. This trip isn't for you if you are fast and don't want to stay with us, if you want to head off on your own, or if you are slow and expect us to constantly wait for you.

On this fast pace (2.3 MPH) trip we will hike about 6.8 miles and climb about 2,800 feet. It should take an average hiker about 4 h 30 m to complete this hike, but we are going faster. This event is considered ADVANCE because of the pace, distance, and elevation gain.

Dangerous weather conditions will cancel this event - I will post an update and/or send an email to all confirmed participants.
