REMEMBER WHEN...

“…Hannes Schneider visited Pinkham Notch. He was a lieutenant in the Austro-Hungarian Army in WWI, and more notably to us, invented the Arlberg method of downhill skiing… -from David Fonseca (1953-54), Colonie NY

“I remember working with helicopters during my six years with the Construction Crew. They say war is hours of boredom punctuated by moments of extreme concentration. So is working with helicopters. Like the time I was hooking loads at Mizpah and the wind was up and the ship suddenly shifted so I couldn’t see daylight between the tail rotor and a steel incinerator so large that it seemed to have been left by the last glacier. As the saying goes, nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. Thankfully the wind shifted. I’ve always been a big fan of Jameson Irish Whiskey, but the two fingers I had that night were especially enjoyable.” -from L. Stroker Rogovin (1978-1984), Arlington, MA

“The side door blew off Lakes of the Clouds during Tropical Storm Barry. Croo members Ben, Jake, and myself wrestled it down and back inside…then pondered the gaping hole in the side of our already wet hut.” -from Beth Weick (2004-2010), Dorchester NH
