I was hoping to pick your experience. I have a family of 5 - 6, 8, 10 yr old - been hiking with them the last two years on various local hikes - Sunday we did a 3 hr approx. 1200 ft elevation hike w/o a problem in 80 F temp- the kids actually are getting better than the adults - last yr we did a 4 hr 1600 ft (90 F) where they were a little tuckered out.
I wanted to take them up to Mt Washington- Tuckerman Ravine the weekend of Aug 17-18th this year. "IF" the weather works out - does anyone see a problem with this? Thinking of taking the shuttle down - so it would be only one way. Seems like the weather is the real unknown and you just have to play it by ear - not being afraid to not do it or turn back if it isn't good. Was planning to continue training until we get to August - 2 to 3x a week to help prepare - 2 light days midweek - weekend do a longer one working on elevation.
