    Wow - the 60's and up crowd isn't hanging out here, apparently. I'm hiking the year of my 60th birthday, but I hope to summit before it - a week before Katahdin closes.

    I will turn 60 on Sep 10 and if i time it just right, I might spend my birthday on the great mountain. wouldn't that be a nice present?
    Everyone's first question:
    "Wow - How tall are you?"
    Answer: "I'm 6'6""
    Ergo, my trail name: 'Six-Six'

    No, we're not sleeping we are still in the bathroom! I wish I could vote and up the 60's percentage but it will be at least three years before I can go.

    I'm up but can't see the keyboard before my second cup of coffee. Hopefully will still be 65 when I finish but I'm so slow it's hard to tell.

    Hey Six-Six!

    I think that is a terrific idea. My 45th birthday is September 6th and I plan to summit Katahdin that day... I look forward to meeting you on the Trail!

    We'll have to figure out a way to get a cake and candles up to the terminus. that would make for a great picture and party. We can split the difference and summit on Sep 8th. Look forward to sharing the adventure with you all too.
