New York - Giant & Rocky Mountains Weekend Trip


This Hike is led by GWH Ambassador Gwen! I'm really excited about this event. (sorry if the wording is a little "rough" it's been a long day). Any questions, just ask ... :) 

This is the overnight event I've been talking about putting together. I reserved an Airbnb that accommodates 10. I will be limiting the group size to 10 people total for this trip. The price for 2 nights is $75/pp (to cover the cost of the cabin). If you want to reserve a spot, I'm holding spots as "first come first serve." If you want to reserve your spot, post in this thread and I will send you payment details, info on the house rental, and answer any questions you have about the hike and what you need to be prepared. You'll have 24 hours to pay to reserve your spot otherwise your spot will go to the next girl in line. You are responsible for all your own food, and way to get to the cabin. 

Your spot is nonrefundable, but if you are unable to make the event you can transfer your spot to another girl. You are responsible for getting the money between you two ladies. 

I know from personal experience that the town of Keene has horrible cell reception, and the cabin doesn't have wifi. It looks like a nice place tho. :) Once we're all there, I'm sure we will be carpooling to the hike together from the cabin. I can seat 6 in my car, and am happy to drive people to the hike and back. 

Plan to bring your 10 essentials on the hike.
