I began leading bike trips for the AMC in 1990 and led for ten years before taking a break. When I became active with the Forty Plus Committee I decided to start leading again. I took a refresher leadership course and Wilderness First Aid and now I am certified as a cross-country ski and bike leader. I have met many wonderful leaders and trip participants and Forty Plus has become one of my most enjoyable retirement activities.

Come join us for a moderately paced hike to stay at Lonesome Lake Hut during a full moon weekend. What a wonderful way to brighten the mid-winter! We will snowshoe across the lake and practice important winter survival skills such as: building a Quinzee snow shelter, a snow cave, a trench shelter, and possibly an igloo. Participants can opt to sleep in their snow shelters or the hut. We will snowshoe to check out the full moon over the lake at night. We will prepare Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast as a group. Full winter gear is required for this event.
Come join us at the Arlington Adventure Pub- A restaurant that is all set up for playing games of all types. The pub offers a variety of games but you are also welcome to bring your own. There is a $5 cover charge. Please consider ordering a meal or at least appetizers as they are gracious enough to provide a warm friendly space for us to hang out.
Come learn about the AMC, upcoming trips, and ways you can be involved.

Mt. Cube. Tired of the same old 4000 footers? Try 52 With a View. Mt. Cube is in western New Hampshire on the AT. 52 With a View peaks are picked because they are "prominent" - higher than everything around them and have spectacular views - in this case a stunning view of the Green Mountains in Vermont to the West and North towards Moosilauke and beyond. ~7 miles roundtrip, 2200 ft elevation gain.
Bill is a four season leader and chairman of the Boston Chapter's Forty Plus Committee.
