Hey Everyone!<br><br><b>Where: Lake Winnipesaukee - Alton Bay, NH</b><br><b>When: Saturday, February 23, 2008</b><br><b>Time: 7am Start</b><br><br><b>For those interested, we'll be running across Lake Winnepesaukee on Saturday, February 23, 2008.</b> The recent cold snap and barrage of winter storms, has finally sealed the lake up on ice thick enough to errect bob houses and even drive your car! Our run will make stops in all 5 of the MS Mount Washington ports. Final determination of ice safety will be made on Thursday, February 21, 2008.<br><br><a href="http://216.235.250.133/" target="_blank">Current Live Lake Cam</a><br><br><b>Options:</b><br>
A.) 5 Ports - 39.13 Miles<br>
Alton Bay to Wolfeboro to Center Harbor to The Weirs to Meredith Harbor<br><br>
B.) Join us at any port and run with us to the end in Meredith.<br><br><b>In the event of Deep Snow on the ice</b><br>
This will become a snowshoeing mission from Alton bay to Meredith Harbor (20 Miles)<br><br><b><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Ice Deemed unsafe plan: Open to suggestions</span></b><br><br><b>Post Run</b><br>
Buy your own Pizza at Brothers Pizza III in Meredith Harbor<br><br><b>Car Spots</b><br>
Someone needs to be in Meredith at 6am so we can arrange a car spot before heading to the start in Alton.<br><br>
Who's in?!

hahaha! That took me a minute to figure out! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Except... is that a hole in the ice? <img alt="shock.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/shock.gif">

Funny, that's the same elevation profile for the Timberman swim too. I wonder ... though last year with the 2-4' swells in the lake maybe not.

Nate brought up a good point in an e-mail.<br><br>
If we end up out on the ice and conditions of the ice deteriorate, we will make for shore and finish the run on the roads. Routes 11 and 3, ending in Meredith.

The run is NOT looking good. Tonight and tomorrow's torrential rain storm, 50-60 degree temps followed by a week without any significant cooling to create new ice, is going to deem the lake unsafe for our travels.<br><br>
If anyone has any other ideas for a run Saturday.. lets hear em!

The Alternate Plans have been Made!<br><br>
We are running the Kancamagus Highway from Conway,NH to Lincoln, NH<br><br>
35 Miles one way... First 26 Miles are UP HILL <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"><br><br>
Should be a gorgeous night, cold, crisp, full moon and the silhouette of mountains for us to enjoy.<br><br>
Let me know if you are interested!
