DRIVER REIMBURSEMENT: Driver reimbursement is the typical CMC rate of 30 cents/mile, divided among the driver and all passengers. BY means of example, the roundtrip distance of 120 miles, at 30 cents/mile, yields a total cost of $36.00. A vehicle with one driver and three passengers works out to $36.00/4 = $9.00.

I do not expect the trip to require either snow shoes or other traction devices. We may encounter a few patches - north aspect Lumpy Ridge - of snow. I recommend everyone bring trekking poles, the Ten Essentials, sunscreen, sun glasses and a hat to protect from UVA/UVB radiation.

For consideration on this trip, I require you to complete Wilderness Trekking School OR a current participant/graduate of TCS/ACS. I also require you to have completed a C - level hike or other similar challenging adventure.
