In the hope that there will still be winter in the White Mountains in a couple of weeks, we are thinking of taking a few days off to go to NH and do the Presidential Traverse.


a) Travel light with necessary winter have-to's just in case (emergency shelter, sleeping bag, stove, some food, etc) and do it in a (really long) one-day push, starting in the dark and ending in the dark (despite the twelve-hours of daylight).

b) Do it in two days with a heavier pack.

Any Traverse veterans out there? Suggestions?
