Snowshoeing fun

Despite the icy conditions and drizzle to start us off, several of us enjoyed a beautiful morning snowshoeing with the Longley's.  The soup following was AMAZING!!!  We are so blessed to live in such a wonderful area.

Snowshoe, record?

We had a recent snowshoe gathering, and we may have hit a record for participation.

Tracy, Steve and Shirl hosted 28 people to a gathering on February 1st, for a beautiful snowshoe along the Bear Camp River Trail.  Lot's of fresh snow to break trail on, and good soup with plenty of dessert following.  Unfortunately, not enough soup!  We've now become a three pot group.  Who would have known a winter walk in the woods in 9 degrees would draw such a crowd.  Hearty New Englanders, that's who!

As mentioned at the fall potluck, I was going to plan a hut to hut hike.  I realize this may not appeal to everyone, but if you are interested, I've developed a short 5 question survey to get a feel for what the majority would like to do.  

If you would like to contribute your thoughts, please complete the survey by going to:

Snowshoeing, and good times...

Here are a couple of snap shots taken over the past three weeks of snowshoe outings.  Our past hosts and co-hosts have done a fabulous job, and so has Mother Nature.  We are all looking forward to the coming weeks and gatherings.

Happy New Year everyone!

 Below is a link to the 2019 Ski and Snowshoe schedule.  These are outings that are designed for all levels.  They are typically easy / flat and shorter in distance.  Following the outing, the host offers soup.  You are invited to bring a sandwich to supplement the soup and have a lunch together.

It is an RSVP event, so please contact the host prior to Thursday to include yourself in the days event.  It is always subject to change due to weather or any other unexpected occurrence.

Looking forward to seeing you all as we enjoy winter in New England, and an opportunity to enjoy a bit of OTHH camaraderie!
