Great article.
 
It's what to expect at any time of year when hiking the Whites.

It was Columbus Day weekend on Mt Chocorua when I experience similar weather conditions. Sunny and in the 70's in the parking lot. Sleeting and windy in the 20's at the summit.

It was amazing the number of unprepared hikers that day, attempting the summit in just shorts! On the way down, I actually shared my weather gear to folks stuck in the halfway cabin so that they can get back to the trailhead.

Just to clarify, this wasn't an unprepared hiker, it was someone attempting suicide.

And, though I'm usually dismissive of FLL's flippant posts, the above are disrespectful. Comments like that about mental health issues and/or suicide are never ok.

This is taking stirring the pot to a much different level. This was an extremely interesting story with a victim of mental health and a true hero. There is absolutely no need for FLLs comments

Been going on for years. Sadly he feeds on this.

Oh well, you know, I didn't say anything that was at all bad or mean spirited ... my main point was that most suicide attempts like this one are the result of lack of money which creates a downward spiral of depression and problems .... and how receiving $1000/month for six months, total $6000, could go a long way to fixing someone's suicidal issues.

About the Jewell Trail, which is the trail that Pam ascended; it is a very steep and tough trail, and she chose to go up it which is like climbing up a long steep ladder. And, the other trail, the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail, which was ascended by the anonymous suicidal male from Maine is a much easier, less steep, less rock face trail, that has a more gentle climb and is very scenic. For newbie hikers to the area, this Ammy Trail is a good one for climbing Mt Washington. You have to pay to park in the parking lot there which is owned by the Cog Railroad. Something tells me the suicidal hiker guy probably did not pay to park there ..... like, not his problem?

Not funny yesterday and not funny today. Start you own topics rather than spoiling other peoples threads and then coming back to them and changing them over and over to see if you can get a rise out of somebody like you did here. Appropriately the Admin deleted your original post and the quoted reply yesterday @ 05:22. Please Stop.

FLL, you messed up--good people don't make light of suicide in any way. In. Any. Way. And they certainly don't try to minimize inappropriate jokes with more inappropriate jokes.

Just stop. Or, better, apologize and think hard about deleting your posts--just imagine how someone who has been suicide-involved might feel to see your comments.

You are correct. If FLL had a family or friend suffering from mental disease and commit suicide like I have he would have never made those inappropriate comments.

Please think before you post FLL especially about something of a serious nature not just a restaurant review or another trivial topic.
