There's still room for you and a few of your friends at the Appalachian Mountain Club's 137th Annual Summit (a.k.a. Annual Meeting) to be held on Saturday, January 26, 2013.
The final day for online registration is Tuesday, January 15th, so don't burn any daylight and/or dawdle.
If you have a heart for all things outdoors in New England and beyond, the Summit is the place to learn, dream and focus your goals and energy.
The gathering will take place at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood, Massachusetts (formerly part of Dedham, the "mother of towns").
Even a quick glance at the schedule will convince you AMC is packing a week's worth of content into one day. Wear comfortable shoes, carry water and stoke up your best attitude to soak it all in.
This very busy day begins at 8 AM. The next ten hours offer you many choices:
Presuming you're still rocking after sunset (and you have pre-registered), stay for dinner with keynote speaker, Audrey Peterman, president and co-founder of Earthwise Productions.
Audrey Peterman -- a national-award-winning environmentalist -- imbues wisdom for motivating people of color to reconnect with the outdoors. Audrey and her husband, Frank, have helped millions of people become aware of the relevance of the National Park System and how it can positively affect their lives.
Registration closes on Tuesday, January 15, 2013. If you miss the deadline, call Cindy Martell at 617-391-6603. Cindy is nice. She'll help you if she can. (No, it won't help you if you say you know me. Sorry.)

Anyone can thru-hike our nation's most popular footpath, if they can climb the 10 Highest Peaks on the Appalachian Trail.
Scott Jurek's Appalachian Trail run to Katahdin will end today, Day 46, July 12, 2015. Fueled by a plant-based diet and the loving care of his wife, Jenny.
December 7, 2016 was frigid and blustery in Baxter State Park, as Skywalker, Mama Cheddar and Master Splinter accomplished a snowy summit of Katahdin.
