My husband is whacked!

Ok, so I love a little adventure…but my husband really has lost it.  Neil has spent a few years hoping to get on the list to be able to head to the Mt. Washington Observatory in the winter which is something that has been on his “bucket list” for a while. He is going to spend 2 days and 1 night at the Mt. Washington Observatory hiking around and with any luck he’ll get some photos of a lifetime! It’s about 6288 feet above sea level and a 4.25 mile ascent up the mountain in a snow cat. The good news today is that the weather right now is pretty mild…only 92 mph winds and -22 windchill lol! The list of items he has to bring is lengthy and should he not have the right gear when he gets there they will not let him up, so he’s been researching and acquiring his gear for about 2 months now. He has been told to be prepared to extend his stay should they not be able to get him down. Where will I be while I wait for him to return? In front of a warm toasty fireplace with a good book!!

Here’s a pano I took a year or so back and you can see where the observatory sits.

Here is all the gear Neil will need for his 1 night atop Mt. Washington
