A full day! Start say 0500 gets you to 9pm.... Start & finish from tent, motel? Good adventure, your middle name:-). Could have provided lodging, 2 mi off 93 just south of Concord. Anytime you're nearby.
I slept in the car at south moat mt trailhead. got about 4 hours sleep, up at 1:30, breakfast, drive to the lincoln woods trailhead. on the trail at 3;30. finished up around 6;30. views were fantastic, climbs were not easy on tired legs. wound up in a hotel for the night just to clean up and get some real rest.
thanks for the offer. next time, maybe the presi traverse?
I did a traverse of the northern Presidentials the first weekend of March, '78 - a night just below treeline followed by a tiring second day in settled weather. I was in good shape due to marathon preparation but dragging by Washington summit.
Doing the entire traverse on a fine summer day would be a visual delight.
